My mom taught me how to crochet maybe 10 years or so ago.  And I use the phrase "taught to crochet" loosely.  All I could do was single crochet (which I didn't know had a name), I had no idea what the proper techniques for finishing or changing colors or anything were, and looking at a pattern baffled and scared me  Wink.
Craftster has inspired me to get off my butt and learn how to crochet for real, so a couple of weeks ago I bought a book with basic stitches in it and finally crocheted something a) from a pattern and b)that used more than just single crochet.  Hooray!  I'm so happy I can finally do this.  I can't wait to make more stuff  Smiley
So here's what I made:
This first pic has truer color

But you can see the scarflette a bit better in this one:


And for anyone who's interested, I bought the pattern here:

Thanks for looking!

I read your manifestos and strange religious tracts.  You took me to your library and kissed me in the stacks.

That looks great!  I really like the greens you used, you did a really good job.  I may have to try that pattern out, thanks.

Pretty cool.  I'm reminded of Poison Ivy from Batman for some reason.

Fabulous!  This is the perfect scarf for those of us who live in the deep south.  Your rose is lovely.  I tried to follow her pattern for a single leaf, but I'm direction-challenged.

I've made this pattern several times and each time I have given it away as a gift. I need to make one so I can keep it. You did a great job and it looks lovely on you
