This scarf is made from cotton yarn that somebody (to whom I'm gratefully) have given me. I used 4 balls 50g each (and still have 4 more), color of the yarn is not one of my favorites so I was sure that I will NEVER find use fore it. bag with 8 balls of yarn stayed fore 5 years in my closet till I signed up fore "use what you have" group on flickr and found lovely crochet  pattern that is combination of double crochet and chain. i wasn't allowed to by new yarn so I used the one I already had. It is great feeling to use something that was hidden fore so long.
 After first 60 rows of the scarf I was sure that I will NEVER finish. I stopped working on it, 2 days a go I found it and decided not to waist time I have already spend macking it and now I'm pretty proud of my self.  I wonder if I should add a fringe and/ore dye it a stronger colour. What do you guys think?

That is beautiful!!!  You did a great job!  I vote no on the fringe, but I think if you're not into the color, you should dye it.  It's too pretty to sit in a closet just because it's the wrong color!

Kind of gives me an idea for the HUGE box of crochet cotton that I bought at a yard sale for $3 last weekend.  lol

Personally I like the color, but if it's something you can't wear (and can't bear to gift) then dying it is always an option. I can't really picture it with fringe, though I suppose it would help you use up some more of that cotton.

It's a lovely scarf- it looks like it has great drape and an interesting pattern. Pretty, pretty!

Oh olenka, I am constantly amazed and delighted by the stuff you make (and your patience)  Grin  I think it's beautiful just the way it is, but I like that kind of grey-green color.

I really like this pattern. Where did you find it at? and I would go with dyeing it if you don't like the color.

Good job, where did you find the pattern?  I'd vote for leaving it as is, no fringe & I like the color.
