More Scarves in the Making

Hello Friends,
Thanks for stopping by. I am still having difficulty posting comments to blogs -- has anyone found a solution to this yet? I have been keeping up with all of your fun projects and happenings, I am just not able to tell you I am reading in your comment section. Hopefully this issue is resolved soon.

Well, the lovely ladies I work with were eager to try my Never-ending Scarf pattern and got to work right away. They are fast hookers too, one made this much progress just during her lunch break:

You may notice the width is a little bit slimmer. She reduced the chain by 5 and is making 4 "clusters" across instead of 5 because she is making this scarf for her 8 year old granddaughter. The yarn is super soft, it is Bernat Bamboo (85% Viscose, 12% Acrylic, 2% Polyester).

 Another lovely lady I work loved the pattern so much she went out to Joann's on her lunch break to stock up on yarn to make several of them! (I know, I work with such a great group of crafters)

Here is her Never-ending scarf with only 3 "clusters" across - she is making it smaller in width for a child too. This pattern can be increase or decreased by adding or reducing the chain in quantities of 5.

Now, I need to show you how I connected the ends of the Never-ending scarf together. To do this, you are going to bring the two ends together and start to work the pattern for the last row by chaining two and slip stitching to the other end of the scarf (to make the sides of both ends connect).

Then make your 3dcs into the chain space like you normally would. Chain 1 and instead of making the second chain, do a slip stitch with the other end of the scarf (your second connection). This is similar to the connect-as-you-go method for granny squares.

I made a pink scarf and hope to be able to show the connect-as-you-go for the last row more clear in those photos. Check back tomorrow for the photo tutorial.

Tomorrow is Columbus Day here in the USA, my university does not celebrate it has Columbus Day, we actually have Fall break tomorrow and Tuesday. So I am very much looking forward to having tomorrow off, but Tuesday I have several meetings so I will not be able to take the 2 day Fall Break. I am not complaining, I will take the 1 day graciously. Hopefully I can making another scarf or two!

xoxo Susan
