Ocean Swells Crochet Scarf


Not wanting to be idle, I like to carry projects with me that I can work on when I have to wait.  My current project was completed rather quickly, in less than two weeks.  Having to wait four hours to see a patient for a consultation at Children’s Hospital contributed greatly to the rapidity of this project.

I recently came across a pattern that reminded me of the waves of the ocean.  When I looked up the name of the pattern, I found that the name, Ocean Swells, fit my thoughts very well.

I decided that I would make a scarf. So, I looked through my supply of yarn and found some that I thought would work well.
