Crocheted scarf

My first linear crochet project, since I always crochet in the round.

This one is for the East Bay Coalition for the homeless, since my mom's women's club is doing a drive, and this is her yarn. (In general I can use whatever of her yarn I want since she's usually destashing, provided she hasn't set it aside for some project. In this case, this was a skein of the yarn that she was using to make these scarves.)

Sadly, it's a scratchy acrylic yarn, and was annoying to work with. So I alternated between single, double, and triple crochet, so I could make it faster but still keep it strong. Here's a close-up:

And LJ is currently down, so I'll copy the post to LJ whenever LJ starts working again.

That looks really cheerful and pretty though, despite the irritation. Nice work :)

Very bright and pretty!

It is annoying that LJ is down, isn't it?

I like the colors, too. I also like your stitch combination. I might have to try that some day!

Often acrylic yarn will soften up a lot after one ride through the washing machine. :) Be careful about drying it thought; some acrylics can't go through the dryer because of the heat, so they need to be line-dried.
