Neat! I cant really crochet or knit, but I love looking at it. Thanks for sharing!

Thank you so much, Susan! I wish you could, there are some cuties on this blog which, no doubt would look great on you, lol!

Thank you so much. My neighbour gifted me some lovely yarn and I've been looking for a cute scarf to make with some of the yarn to say 'thank you'. This is just so perfect.

Craftybegonia said...

Glad you like it, hope the yarn your neighbor gave you turns into a lovely Aleena for you!

Jane Walsh said...

I love this scarf! Do you happen to have a pattern for a matching hat?

Craftybegonia said...

Thank you +Jane Walsh. No, sadly, I do not have a matching hat. But let me give you a suggestion, on Pinterest, on Facebook crochet groups, and on Google Plus crochet groups, there are lots of free crochet patterns for hats. Look up one that you like and simply make it in the same yarn as you make your Aleena, thus matching it by color. People won't see the difference at all!
