When I first learn how to crochet, one of the first things I did was browse the internet for patterns. Luckily for me, I was able to pick up reading patterns fairly quickly. I came across a blog called crochetspot.com. I was instantly hooked (no pun intended). I had come across the Blanket Stitch. I loved it instantly and it wasn't hard to do.
After making a few swatches to figure out how wide I wanted a blanket to be, I found that it was perfect for scarves. I've even made a hat for my best friend with this stitch, but I have yet to make a blanket out of it. Anyways, since it started getting cold in New York City, I wanted a handmade scarf so I made this one.
It was made in blue, gray, burgundy, teal green, and black with no edgings or fringe since it was long enough, it didn't need any of it. Since it's spring, and summer is right around the corner, I haven't worn this in a while, but when winter returns, I'll be ready. This scarf took me about four days. I mainly crocheted it on the train going and coming from work, which is an hour long commute.
