Well, it is another day of freezing wind and snow flurries here in the Midwest where winter will just not let go, but my latest completed crochet project makes me think of springtime sunshine, daffodils and forsythia bushes.
Last weekend I found a large unlabeled skein of bright yellow, acrylic, probably sport-weight yarn in a box of stuff my Mom had brought over to my house a while back. I quickly decided that the yarn would be perfect for this Spring Petals Scarf pattern. This is a simple pattern that was great for working on during another long trip back and forth for an eye surgery-related appointment early in the week. It’s quick to work up, but makes a very pretty and complex looking/feeling scarf.
Since I used a thinner yarn than the pattern called for, I used a smaller (size E) hook and I started with 45 chains for nine little petals. I just repeated the pattern until I had used up all of my yarn. As a result, this scarf is plenty long – 62 inches by 5.5 inches - which is great for warmth on chilly days since it is a somewhat lighter weight scarf.
