Operation Use Up Yarn Scarf 1 - Pink and White Gordana

When I first started crafting and when I joined the old site in 2011, my go-to craft was crochet. As the years have gone on, I have lost interest in working crochet, so this big bin of yarn has been sitting in my garage for years. I decided I needed to do something with it or donate it. So, I’ve decided I will work some scarves and probably some amigurumi (I used to love those) that I’ll actually then either donate or offer in a STS round.

My first yarn destashing used a blend of this white and pink yarn I had inherited from my grandma’s stash when she passed away. (There’s still more of both colors!) I do not know brand or type. It’s pretty soft and seems like a sock weight.

The scarf measures 60" x 10" and I used this pattern. One of the things I really liked about it is that the repeats were simple and easy to remember, which made it a good pattern to work up while watching tv.


A very pretty return to crochet for you!

I love the colour, it’s very pretty! And it’s always a good thing to use up your stash (or donate it). You finished this pretty fast too.

Great scarf! Cool that you are culling the stash, too. Your grandma would be proud!

Glad you’re getting back into crochet! That scarf looks pretty, and soft! Several years ago I made a bunch of hats and then I donated them to school for the guidance counselor to give away. She said all but one was taken. I never did see anyone wearing one, but at least they were used by someone. I bet you could bring a bunch of items into your school and they would find happy homes :slight_smile:


Beautiful! If you’re looking to keep stash busting, I know Friends of Pine Ridge Reservation takes donations of hats and scarves. :heart:


If anyone wants it for themself or to give as a gift, send me a pm! I don’t wear scarves!

Pretty scarf!
And how wonderful that you rediscovered your love of crocheting.

Eh, I’m forcing myself…wouldn’t say I refound a love, but thank you for the compliment.
