Ain’t Misbehavin’ Scarf

Ain't Misbehavin' Scarf

A friend of mine has been taking a knitting/crochet group into an assisted-living facility where her mom resides. I volunteered to support her group and this Thursday will be my first time attending. You know how I love old ladies! Anyway, the last time I saw my friend in the store she was buying yarn for the group. I commented to my friend that it was a nice gesture, and to save her some money, I would go through my mountainous stash and donate some of my yarn.

So the other day, I began stash-diving, beginning with multicolored yarns because I had been informed that was what the old ladies liked best. Of course, once I started seeing all the beautiful colors, I could not decided what to donate. My final algorithm was to donate single unlabeled skeins so I would not have the additional challenge of color matching or trying to find the same yarn.

I was initially going to donate the Universal Classic Worsted Tapestry (Fiber Content: 80% Acrylic, 20% Wool; Yarn Color: 7005 Party Time; Yarn Weight: 4, Worsted), but thought because it was various balls tied together, it would not be optimal for the old ladies, so I ended up crocheting the scarf above, which will be donated to Handmade Especially For You, the charity at the El Segundo Sliptstitchers knitting guild – I’ll never understand why it’s abbreviated ESSS versus ESS. Anyway, I used a US 8/H – 5 mm hook and the Diagonal Box Stitch to make this scarf. I could have sworn there was a nicer way to decrease this stitch without having to chain or slipstitch, but I could not find those instructions. If you know how, please send me an email.
