I have officially begun to make Christmas presents. First up - a sweet and pretty little scarf for Sweetpea.
I used the One-Skein Crochet Scarf designed by Denise Cozzitorto and listed on the Jo-Ann Stores website. Since I was making the scarf for a 3 year old, I scaled it down to about half the intended size. I started off by chaining 103, and then followed the pattern. It stitched up quite quickly. It's a fairly narrow scarf - perfect for a little neck. And it's pretty - perfect for a little girl. I used an 80% cotton, 20% merino wool yarn in Cherry Moon by Brown Sheep Company.
