I had a bunch of silk scarves that needed pruning; the ones that didn't make the cut got made into the following scarf:





And also a fatbottom bag.  See the Debbie Stoller section for a photo of that:

Hi Crazy Girl,

It's really easy.  I just cut the scarves into strips about 1/2 wide, zig-zaging from one side of the square to the other:



Then you crochet with a large crochet hook, joining as you go.  I did this in sc but I wish I'd ribbed it (by crocheting just into the back strand of each stitch as you go.  Stay in the back strand even when you turn, and you'll get a ribbed effect) since this fabric is quite stiff.  The ribbing gives a bit of stretch, which would make it more wearable, I think.

It looks lovely.  But I'm going to have to warn mother away from buying you any silk scarves at estate sales... who knows what tortures you'll inflict upon them!!
