Crochet Lillian Infinity Scarf

Hi friends,

How did you learn to crochet? Did you teach yourself or did someone sit down with you and show you what to do? My Grandmother taught me when I was about 10 years old. She always told me I held my crochet hook wrong – I’m a knife-hold girl, she was a pencil-hold girl – but she also said I could crochet much faster than her so it was ok. πŸ™‚

She made lots of afghans and one of her favorite patterns to use was the ripple afghan pattern. I designed the Lillian Infinity Scarf using this pattern in memory of my Grandmother Lillian. Because she taught me young, crochet has given me a lot of joy through the years and I have been able to pass the art onto several young girls. I think my hook has never been far away – I’ve either had a work in progress or was thinking about the next project I wanted to begin. Thanks, Grandma!

These Clover hooks are some of my favorite crochet hooks – easy on the hands so I can crochet longer. πŸ™‚
