Pink Button Scarf

Earlier this spring I was looking for a neck wrap I liked.   The hi-low temperature in Illinois changes rapidly, so I wanted something light.  I browsed the internet and found this pattern at Fave Crafts. 

The Blue Button Scarf is a scarf that is described as "a spiderweb scarf. You only wear it around your shoulders kind of like a shawl."  I decided to use some yarn I had from my stash, a pink mixed fiber yarn from GALA Yarns that I had purchased at Big Lots.

In the description, it says the pattern is easy, but I would not agree.  Although the pattern only uses chains, and single and double crochet, the six-row pattern repeat needs to be carefully followed eleven times.  Having to concentrate this much was difficult for me, and I was only able to work on it for about an hour each time, and could only finish two repeats each time.  Even so, it was well worth the effort.  I think it turned out beautifully.

Nice review of the pattern. I know a few I've worked on, I can only knit a bit at a time. I like when the pattern allows you to take breaks.

Ah- ha, craft work! Like the bracelet, Mlissabeth. I'm not great at crafts and seldom have enough time, but if you give me a nudge now and then I'll come and look. :)
