this is a recent accomplishment of mine.... it is a fall-weight scarf crocheted with lion brand cotton-ease yarn, which i think is delightful. time consuming, but oh so comfortable to wear, especially if you hate the weird way acrylic/acrylic type fibers scratch at your so-warm-its-a-little-sweaty neck.






this scarf is real nice for fall, but for the winter i think i'm going to make a chunkier, warmer scarf out of something like boucle. any ideas?

wow, i had to just bring this topic up to say how much i love that scarf. its really pretty. im looking for a scarf pattern at the moment for a male friend of mine. he said he wanted me to make him a "masculine" scarf. hear that, a "masculine" scarf. i am going to have a look for a similar pattern to this because i think with the right colour it could indeed be "masculine". awesome job, and yes, i too have a craving for mints after having seen this.

it looks great!

I love how there is not an exactly straight line between the two colors!   is that seed stitch?  I waas trying to peer at it and figure it out but I'm not so up on all my stitches.

very nice job!

Great job, whitecheddar---have done a couple of long stripe scarves myself recently and really like the look.

this scarf is real nice for fall, but for the winter i think i'm going to make a chunkier, warmer scarf out of something like boucle. any ideas?

How about Lion Brand's Homespun?  It's acrylic but so-o-o-o soft, with a nice texture, and a wide range of beautiful colors that can have an interesting broadly variegated quality depending on which one you use (it's a sort of watercolor quality of closely related hues blending every several yards...if that makes any sense at all).  The bumply texture can make it just a little harder to work with, but the results are well worth it.

a male friend of mine . . . . said he wanted me to make him a "masculine" scarf.  . . . . i am going to have a look for a similar pattern to this ....

NaeNae, I think the long stripe is great for men's scarves.  Recently did one using Lion's Jiffy, also acrylic but soft and looks like mohair, in the El Paso color (closely variegated fall/earth tones) that could easily work for a man or a woman.  Didn't use a pattern; I just made a chain the length I wanted it to be and then then did the whole thing with double crochets into back loops only---this makes alternating "levels" of rows which adds to the visual interest.

Lion Brand's indivudual yarn pages don't have their own addresses so I couldn't provide links for you to check out the colors; the website is http://www.lionbrand.com.  You'll find a lot of free patterns there as well.  Oh, I have no affiliation with Lion other than as a consumer.

the stitch i used...
(i don't know what the proper names of anything is, but i think this might make sense) ... i single crocheted into one stitch, did a chain stitch over the next, and then single crocheted into the next one, chain stitch..... yeah, that's how i did it!

oh, and also, it was crocheted lengthwise rather than horizontally! that's probably the trick here
