Stay Warm... DIY Crochet Scarf

About 2 weeks ago I went browsing at the new TJ Maxx by my job in the financial district and I saw this comfy scarf by Calvin Klein for 50 dollars. I don't know about you but I'm not paying 50 dollars for a scarf. Soooo... I went to Walmart and picked up some yarn and made my own scarf, I wanted it really wide so I could double it up around my neck and wear it on my head when its gets really really cold. It took me 2 days and I used 6 rolls of yarn, and I paid 2.77 for each roll, I saved myself a few bucks...





Scarf made by yours truly - ME! Lipstick - St. Germain by Mac
I'm just a regular girl from Brooklyn sharing my point of view. It's something about networking with real people who tried something; read something that you may want to read; went somewhere that you may want to go based off their experience. It’s not a celebrity getting paid to give their stamp of approval. Its’s a “REAL” person. I also represent for the Curvy Women all around the world... and my darkskin women too. Stay fit & Healthy no matter what size you are! Stick around I'm sure you will find something you like...

Timeka who knows maybe I'll do a giveaway or something ... Maybe! Bibi once you know how to crochet you always know how to crochet... I used a large yarn so it's easier to use and it looks better because it's thicker... Goody check out some YouTube video on beginners crochet and you will have it in no time... I only do one patten right now but I find that once you know how to do it you can pick up different stitches easily... YouTube is the best for that...
