Scarf #14-Shriver Scarf...11" done.

I am a slow knitter, and I had to teach myself to knit cables in order to make this scarf. Very easy, just slow.......and I like to speed crochet. Been busy making Quilts for Charity. Made 4 quilt tops. One last week and three this week. Saw my quilt being finished when I drop off the three on Tuesday. Took all my granddaughters with me so they can see where I spend my Tuesdays.

Scarf #13 Double Shell with sc and dc edge.

The Pattern, because you asked for it...
As per Needlework book...DOUBLE SHELL EDGING: Ch 19. Row 1: sk 9 ch, 1 shell (4dc, ch3, 4dc) in next ch, sk 5ch, 1 shell in next ch, sk 2ch, 1dtr in last ch, ch5, turn. Row2: 1 shell in each 3-ch sp of shell below, 1 dtr in last dc ...of 2nd shell, ch 5, turn. Repeat Row 2 for pattern, ending last row with ch1, 1 dc in last dc; do not turn.
Then I did 3 sc in each opening on each side and whatever fit on the bottoms.
Then followed with dc all around. Ta Dah! A little free form.
