These scarves were immensely fun to make, and they are a nice reminder of springtime during the dead of winter!

I just finished this scarf for a swap:

It was made with Sugar 'N' Cream cotton on a size G hook. Purple is definitely not my favorite color, but my swap partner likes it... hopefully she likes the scarf, it's going to its new home in a few days!

This one was completed almost a year ago, but I figured I might as well share it as well: http://farm2.static.flickr.com/1324/993713118_5cc0e5c030_o.jpg
This version was made with Caron Simply Soft acrylic on a size D hook. I used this scarf so often last winter that some of the flowers are curling at the edges from being stretched. After making the cotton one, I think that's a better choice- it's a little more stiff than the acrylic, so I think it will hold up better. Especially if she wears hers as much as I wore mine!

The pattern is from Gayle Bunn's Total Crochet Fashions. Enjoy!  Cheesy

Thanks, everyone, for your nice comments!

gina-marie - Yes, they took ages to join. It was the trickiest part! I was much more careful joining the purple scarf, so it took much longer than the pink-orangey one. It is worth the effort though!

gnathalie2- I had the same problem after I made the first one! I joined them all pretty haphazardly and they starting to come apart after I wore it a lot... hopefully I did a better job on my second one!
