Japanese Granny Square Shawl/Scarf


My mom gave me this beautiful Japanese book with Japanese crochet patterns in hopes that I would make something for her.

(As a side note, I can't seem to find an official title for this book, but I would like to know who this model is, because her hair is gorgeous)

As part (most) of my mom's Christmas present , I made the scarf on the front cover.

I changed up the color scheme for for one with more bold colors - attempting to make red (her favorite color) the main theme.

The end result is shown below. It was a fun project, and I have a feeling I will be doing more crochet in the future!
