I finally had a few spare moments to work on the Special Olympic Scarf Project that I had been wanting to participate in. The PROJECT is sponsored by Coats and Clark. You can read about it HERE, and you still have time to crochet a quick scarf and send in your entry by the January 15, 2009 deadline! Here are mine:
I fell in love with the pattern that I found over at my friend Darla's blog. She designed this scarf using the book: 365 Crochet Stitches A Year Perpetual Calendar by Jean Leinhauser and Rita Weiss. I think the pattern stitch she used is beautiful and I just couldn't resist copying it! With permission, of course! Thanks, Darla! The pattern stitch works up so quickly that I was able to make two scarves in a very short period of time.
