Sandra's Scarf

Well, Sandra doesn't know it's her scarf yet - it's a Christmas present.  I wanted to make something for the neighbour kids.  They are true outdoor kids so I thought a winter scarf would be cute.

I love this yarn.  It is such a pretty combination of purples and greens.



The pattern was really simple from Naida's Crochet site, but the variegated yarn made it look so much nicer without any effort (or skill) on my part.  That's the kind of trade-off I really like.




I changed up the fringe.  Instead of crocheting little nubs, I just tied the fringe to the end of the scarf.



I hope she likes it.  I'm off to start her brother's scarf now.

Is a scarf a good beginner project? I would really like to try this!

This is so gorgeous. The yarn makes it looks so pretty. If I could crochet I would make one like this with exactly the same colours. Gorgeous.

Such a thoughtful gift and it turned out so pretty. Variegated yarn always looks so fun crocheted! Thanks for linking at Share on Fridays!

I'm working on 2 Christmas gift scarves right now - I love the idea of the fringe!! The one I'm working on is kind of boring - this will really help. :o)
