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.

LOVE IT LOVE IT LOVET!  No fringe, keep it as is.

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