Scarf #11 for Special Olympics

Jacob's Ladder

Ta-dah! The finished scarf. I did a sc in blue all around the scarf. This was so much easier that I thought. Jacob's Ladder is the stitch.

Scarf #10 for Special Olympics

This is a crocheted V-Stitch with 2 rows of sc in red and six two-colored pom poms. Made the pom poms with a Clover pom pom maker.
When my granddaughter "K" was little, she called palm trees Pom-Pom trees. Brings back such sweet memories.

Arrowhead Tunisian Stitch Scarf for Special Olympics.

Entrelac Scarf for Special Olympics

This is how I started. Then I put asided until encouraged by Lita, a fellow needlework artist like myself, who nudged me to continue and then gave me the idea to add tassles. This stitch was taught on youtube by the Crochet Geek, Teresa Richardson.

Used the same stitch as a tunisian stitch. Came out thick and heavy. But I love the design.
