Scarves, Scarves and More Scarves!

I dropped in to my Mommy in Laws house and guess what I found!

Scarves, scarves and more scarves!!!

So much fun and they are just gorgeous!!

And of course she taught me how to make my own:))
and some for my Granddaughters!

Boa Scarves

This is the coolest yarn ever!

 Not sure if it's really called yarn because its similar to netting.

 Just too Cool!

Start by typing a knot in one end of the yarn

Use a size D crochet hook and
 on one side of the strip, grab 8 stitches.  I choose the side indicted by the arrow to allow the design on the left side to hang free.  

Like this!

Grab the ninth stitch...

And pull it through all eight stitches. 

As each stitch is pulled through, it gathers the yarn and creates this ruffle effect.

Continue until the desired length is acquired.  I used the entire skein of yarn for my scarf.

Then you just have to buy more yarn!  
 These are so much fun to make and fun to wear!

And these are ready to go into the mail for....

These little cuties!

Then I made my Granddaughters just too happy with these scarves!

  8. Good Afternoon Evelyn, What pretty scarves. I have never thought of crocheting with this wool. The scarves I have made for my daughters I knitted, but looking at the end product they look the same.
    My daughters are much older and they loved them.
    Before I go, I have to say, your grand daughters are beautiful.
    Best Wishes

    I am really bummed that it is already so warm here. I'll have to out them away until fall.

  13. I've never seen that yarn before, but then I don't buy much so I have no need to go to that area. I will be going and looking for this, what an incredible scarf! I would love to try this, so I'm pinning and will be on the look-out for the yarn.

  38. Oh my gosh! I'm so glad you shared this! I've been trying to learn to crochet and I have wanted to do this for some time. I was shamefully jealous after watching a teen girl in church knit about five from scratch during the service(song service). I love that yarn I can see all kind of possibilities. I'm over from the SHOW-licious Craft Showcase.
