I made a scarf out of double-crochet (UK = treble) circles from a lovely verigated sockweight cashmere, with a brown 4-ply wool border. I wish it was cool enough to wear! (very hot out at the moment)

So great! I love the colors and the shape.

Would you recommend this as a beginning crochet project? Or maybe more intermediate?

Very nice

I really really really would love to have Interweave Knits Spring 2007 for those Eunny Chang entrelac socks. . . Does anyone want to swap for it?! I have yarn, I can sew, embroider, knit.

it could be a beginner project I guess. I'd call myself a beginner, though this wasn't my first project

You have to play with making circles, but that's quite easy, then its just going round and round. The trick is putting the circles together so they looked balanced. its freeform, so if you "mess up" no one'll notice (and wonky bits are easy to hide)

I shouldn't admit it, but I think a big reason for how well this turned out is that the yarn (from hipknits) is so lovely.

This is absolutely gorgeous.  I don't live in an area where I need a scarf for warmth, but I'm always lookiing for scarves that are fashionable and cute, and most of them just don't do much for me.  This is beautiful, though.  Thanks for posting.

I did it differently in different places. most of the time I single crocheted round one circle, then when it got to a bit where I wanted them to join I crocheted both circles at once. other times I did a few slip sts then made the boarder go round both which held them in place. there is a link to where I got the idea from on my knitting blog (http://slippedstitch.blogspot.com) which has a proper tutorial
