Boy's Scarf

You might remember the little girl version of the crocheted scarf that I made for Sandra (the neighbour).  Well, this week is the little boy version for Samuel (also the neighbour).  I sort of used the same pattern from Naida's Croquet.

I sent out a request for help (via Facebook) last week to determine whether or not Samuel's scarf should have a fringe.  The overwhelming response was NO.

I still wanted to make sure the length was going to be adequate and that it had a little flare, so I added a block that I crocheted in the opposite direction to each end of the scarf.  I also worked the half double crochet in only the back of the stitches to give it a bit of texture.

So, two handmade gifts down,..only,....how many more to go? Okay, let's not think about that,..let's just go back to the scarf.  :)
