Fun, fun, fun!
Quite ironically,Teacup Lane discovered gingham crochet creations about the same time I did! She managed to finish her project and show it before me. It was a good thing that she posted about starting her project before I started my project because the link in her post (linked above) contains a link to a video that was MOST helpful with a technique used in the color change part of this creation. The gingham post that grabbed my attention was this one! I have to admit I found the pattern associated with the post quite confusing. I ended up making up my own pattern with the basic knowledge that one square was comprised of three rows of 5 DC. Starting chain was 25 (+2 for a turning chain) in length. Three different colors of yarn were used for my scarf. I used a single strand of each color, as opposed to the double strand called for in the posted pattern. The square that looks like navy/white together is a single yarn that I found at Hobby Lobby, made by Bernat. I also made one of these scarves in shades of gray with white, although couldn't find that great Bernat yarn in gray/white so just improvised with a lighter color.
I'm thinking there are many color possibilities that might be fun...although one might lose the gingham look...still the repeating colorful squares could be interesting!
I am currently working on another gingham project...but it's not a scarf/muffler. If it turns out as I am hoping it will, I'll share it - although it's going to take me a little time to finish it.
Thanks for looking!
