"Summer" Scarf

I finally finished my first knitting project (man, crocheting is so much faster!). So here, on the hottest day of the year, I'm sporting my brand new skinny scarf complete with a few crocheted flowers attached to one side to add some pizazz.

My pattern was very simple. Knit 2, Purl 2... a nice ribbed stitch.  This project was really just to get me used to making both stitches and switching off between them. I crocheted the little flowers and I usually just make these up as I go.  You can always google "how to make crocheted flowers", if you're interested. 

So here she is...just in time for summer. :)

(I apologize for the grainy webcam photos)


  1. SO SO Cute! I love it against the yellow. I love the little rosy flowers on it! Way cute!

    I started learning to knit awhile back... I go through spurts. It's way addicting, huh?!

  2. Well done, Kerrie! Very cute!

  3. Very pretty! love the yellow and gray together as well.

  4. I am so jealous... one of these days I WILL learn to knit or crochet!
