I TOTALLY DID IT!

I finished the Hexagon Crochet Scarf...I did it! Not having really crocheted before, I was able to actually read the pattern and produce this beautifully crochet scarf. The scarf is now hanging on the class wall of the knit shop. It's really surreal to walk in and see something that I created, that I made being displayed in an actual shop. So far...no sign ups for the class. Even if no one signs up for the May class, atleast I know that I accomplished a huge task by even attempting to crochet this scarf.
I was a little concerned about the edging and joining. The directions seemed like I was reading a science experiment. You join the hexagon pieces as you crochet the edging.


As you can see though! .....I did it!

MOTTO of this post ....don't be afraid to try something new! You may find that you surprise even yourself!

PS....Someone asked in a comment from previous post about the fiber content! Yes, it's 100% cotton.

Wonderful. Love the color combinations. Joining is always a problem for me. I would take the class JUST to get more comfortable with the joining process.

Alice, your scarf is stunning, I reallly love it. I also love the fact that it is cotton...I can only wear cotton, wool makes me very itchy.

You did a wonderful job! What cotton did you use? I love the texture! Wish I could take your class... there isn't anything in my area!
