Chunky Circle Scarf

Crocheting has been my creative outlet recently.  I have acquired so many amazing patterns that I just can't stop making things.  Today I am showing you the newest scarf I made. I found the pattern on Pinterest and it is originally from People Webs.  This pattern was not difficult but you do have to pay close attention.  At times I did not and there was some thread pulling happening.  But in the end I am happy with how it turned out.

I did not use the same thread recommended in the pattern.  I love this soft and thick alpaca yarn.  I was making this scarf for my mom who walks home from work almost daily and I thought it would be warmer.

The original pattern directions are to join the ends together, but I knew my mom would prefer it as a regular scarf instead of an infinity scarf. 
 The pattern was simple to understand.  She explains things so well.  I made this while watching tv at night, most likely the source of my mistakes.  
I am so thankful to all the wonderful artists who post their patterns and share them so generously with others.    What did we ever do before the internet.  I know my pattern list has grown substantially with all the talented bloggers sharing their gifts.  
My mom loved the scarf.  I hope it helps her think of me whenever she uses it.

I will be linking up to the fabulous parties listed here.
