Ok, so maybe this was finished a couple of weeks ago, but I did only photograph it today :-P
Here it is - my crochet ruffled scarf...
The original pattern is a free Lion Brand Yarn Pattern, which looks like this...
I made it an extra 100 chain stitches longer, so it would wrap around my neck and still leave plenty to hang, and I also made it one row wider. The yarn I used is one of those spiffy ones that has colours merge into another, all throughout the ball, and it took almost two balls to make.
The verdict is still out on this one, for me. The colours are pretty, but not sure if they are really me, and ditto with the ruffles...
Hmm, have you ever made something for yourself that didn't turn out quite how you pictured it in your head? Or that does resemble how you pictured it, but just doesn't work on you?
Oh well, it was fun to make something different.
Plenty of creative, crafty, sweet people over here.
