After meeting up with some friends who were working on knitting and crocheting projects as we chatted earlier this month, I was inspired to pick up crocheting again. I haven’t crocheted anything since high school, which is when I taught myself how to do it with the help of some online guides.
I’ve only ever done blankets and little Christmas projects (like the crocheted button tops to kitchen towels that allows people to hang them on the oven door handle).
But I thought I’d pick up the hobby again by making a scarf for my fiance for Christmas since we decided not to buy each other gifts this year (in order to put that money into our elopement backpacking excursion). I also found a cute pattern for a headband that I made.
The free pattern for the scarf can be found here. I think I’ll make myself one using the pattern but I will make it less wide so it can be more of a skinny feminine scarf. Before I do that, though, Matt requested a matching beanie. He also said he plans to wear this scarf almost every day, even in the summer.
It makes me happy that he likes it so much.
