If you are a regular follower here, you may remember that I was crocheting a pair of matching scarves for my daughter & her boyfriend. Well, I am able to show them now, so here they are:
The pattern was free from Caron International, and they were really fun to make. They used 2 types of crochet: standard and Tunisian which used to be called Afghan stitch. A Tunisian needle is very long--15" and you pick up and keep all the stitches on the needle & then crochet them off. That is how the teal stripes were created--along the length of the scarf. The black eyelets were crocheted with a regular crochet hook.
Turns out they both really liked them! Score 1 for Mom!
