A Love Scarf from an Eleven Year Old

by This is Carrie on February 12, 2010

Last month, I taught a handul of 8-11 year old girls how to crochet.  They all took to it quite nicely, but only one finished a scarf in time for the Love Scarf Project.  When she was worried it was way too short, I remembered my crafty friend, Shari once told me how she used vintage pins to hold her short scarves in place.

I think it was my favorite “scarf” in the pile.

What a great outcome! I am constantly amazed at how well children adapt to new crafts. I have been crocheting on and off for a while now but I still don’t have the patience for large projects!

You must feel great seeing results like this come from your teaching. And yes, the pin does ‘make it’, I love the result and the antique charm.

Nikki,

I have NO patience for big projects. You will never see me working on an afghan. Scarves, yokes, and tiny baby sweaters are about all I got in me

Is that right! No patience for big projects? I think I remember a crocheted christening dress that was done in #20 or #30 thread.

okay, so I did one big crochet project. But that was it. No more. Almost killed me.

I like the scarf, but I like the photo of the scarf even better. Great Shot!
