Lovely stuff.  Not that it's not all unique, but I found the armwarmers particularly striking.

Excellent work.   Smiley

i'm sorry i dont use patterns and i'm terrible about keeping track of my yarn.  so i usually dont know what my yarn is called... the off-white is some really cheap acrylic stuff from michaels i think, and then the colored is this really soft yarn i bought a long time ago through smiley's website, but it's not on there anymore, i'm pretty sure it's called "cervinia fiamma" in the "jungle fever" color.  i used a huge size P crochet hook, so it went really fast and they arent too hot to wear since they are airy.

sorry i dont have a pattern, i just made them up as i went, starting at the elbow with single crochet, and decreased one whenever i felt the need to, so they get smaller up to my wrists.  i switched to double crochet when i got to the hands, then left a big hole for the thumbs, and decreased again, and then the last few rows are single crochet again.  hope that helps a little!

Hey, cool idea with the tie and the yarn to make a scarf!  did you stitch the crocheted part and the tie together?  if not, how did you attach them?
thanks
cool stuff!

thanks!  yes, i stitched them together. about one stitch every inch or so, holds together well.  i'm thinking of making another one a bit differently, because last night this girl thought i was wearing just a scarf and two ties around my neck until she saw it up close.  i'm not sure how to make it look more like one piece though.  hmmmmmm.  i'll figure something out.
