"Tracy's Ruffle Scarf" pattern is such a good project for beginners that even my 9 year-old daughter, Maria, enjoyed crocheting herself a ruffle scarf this weekend!
After crocheting a scarf for myself, I took Maria to my local yarn shop and let her pick out a ball of yarn for her very own scarf. Within a couple hours, her scarf was finished and she was already teaching her sisters and a friend how to make one!
There's something really special about making things by hand. I love that Maria has that same desire to create beautiful things. She just glowed as she wore her handmade scarf to church today.
