Scarves From the Heart

While looking for new scarf patterns, Shelly stumbled across my free Bumpy Scarf Pattern and asked if she could use it for scarves she makes for her charitable organization, Scarves From the Heart. Of course my response was a 'heart'felt yes - I'm flattered that she chose to try my pattern, and for such a great cause.

She just completed two scarves and shared photos with me. She crocheted them using Paton's Canadiana yarn that was donated, in colors of Deep Chocolate, Raspberry and Off-White (colors now discontinued, I believe). She did nine rows with a starting chain of 232, which resulted in scarves 80" long x 4" wide.


I think she did a great job and I'm sure the lucky recipients of her gifts will be most appreciative.







Shelly, thanks for sharing with me, and also for the great works you do with Scarves From the Heart ...


Update: Shelly just informed me that this is just one scarf but she has shown both sides. Each color is just one row and the stitch used makes it so that it is raised on one side and recessed on the other. Since she used the off-white every other row, you see more of it on one side than the reverse.

Pretty neat, huh?

I think it's lovely. Sort of has an argyle look to it!

*By the way, I tagged you. You don't have to participate if you're not into that kind of thing and I won't get angry. ;-) http://highdeserthooker.blogspot.com/2009/02/6-x-6-tag.html

This should be perfect, I can't wait to try it out. Well written article! You should post it on Wacanai.com(http://www.wacanai.com/intro). They have a bunch of similar articles and you can link it back to your website. I have one posted on it and it is awesome because they give you some graphs to put on your page to track how many people read your article and it tells you how useful they thought it was. I think a lot of people could use to read your stuff and I think this will help get your articles out there more!
