Aelwyn Scrappy Scarf

SONY DSC SONY DSC

Every year, I make each of my kids a scarf.  With 3 of them, I can pretty much decide the style and colors and know that the recipients will love them.  Aelwyn is different.  She has her own sense of style and thinks that matching colors is a bad thing.  With this in mind, I sent her to my yarn closet to pick out the yarn she wanted.  I wasn’t surprised when she brought back a few different yarns that didn’t quite go together, but I was surprised when she made a couple more trips to the closet.  There were so many colors and textures that I wasn’t sure what I was going to do.  I found my answer in a needle craft book from the 70’s.  The stitch is called crochet rib and it is pretty simple to do once you get the hang of it.

As always, this pattern has not been tested so if you notice any problems with it please let me know either in the comments section or at CrochetBot3000@gmail.com. You can also find me on Facebook at http://www.facebook.com/Crochetbot3000.
