Simple Scarf

I tried to make a tutorial but ran out of words. Instead, I'm giving you a tutorial in photos, if there is such thing. I'm sharing an entire album of photos which shows the progress of my scarf. Click on the image below to go to my Picasa album or click here.

The pattern is very easy and knowledge of a basic chain and a double crochet stitch is the least requirement. The width of the scarf depends on the length of the first row of an even number of chains. Materials I used for the project are:

1) Two balls of mercerized cotton thread
2) No. 8 steel crochet hook

You can use any crochet thread of your choice and any small hook that suits you. The number of crochet thread balls will depend on your desired scarf length.

This is my finished scarf:

I think the pattern can make a good curtain too. :)

got new beads

I have new beads. They look so much prettier with enough lighting so had to turn on the lamp.

Found so many neat stuff online like other craft blogs. I might talk about them next time or put links here on my blog. I'm also thinking about posting tutorials here. I have to figure that out.

That brown scarf I blogged about last time is still in progress. I really wish it were done sooner. I think too much browsing consumed most of my time. But today I spent the whole day sorting out my craft stuff. Made me realize I have been a hoarder. Got tons of papers, beads and thread. I don't have much space and some of them has got to go....
