Mom’s Christmas Scarf

I finished this scarf before Christmas… you know, because it was a Christmas gift for my mom. I think she really liked it! The pattern was really easy to memorize, even for a novice crocheter like me. (I’ve been crocheting for almost 17 years and just now learned to read patterns about a year ago.) The yarn was so neat; Araucania Ranco Solid. It didn’t pool at all, it just subtly changed colors a little here and there. Perfect.

The pattern is “Isar Scarf” by Julia Vaconsin. (It’s a free ravelry download.) I left off the fringe called for because my mom is not really into fringe. The look of the scarf really changes a lot after blocking, as is usually the case with openwork-type things. Also, I would recommend using a larger hook than you might think you should, because when it’s worked tightly the scarf does not look lacy and nice at all. It just looks stiff and odd.

I, of course, wanted to keep it for myself, but I gave it to my mom like a good daughter. Now she’d better wear it… haha.
