Happy Crocheting,

Christina.

Here are some other scarves I have made with this pattern:

These two were for granddaughters Allyson and KC.  Christmas Presents.

A Friend, Jessica’s scarf, a gift.

Scarf for my best friend, Linda, for her birthday.

I just love how some of the homespun yarn changes shades as you crochet.

Another shot of Linda’s scarf, the chain fringe.  I have now made 10 of these scarves for gifts.
