I never know the color will try out so nice when I started it, I used 3 balls of Noro Kureyon in color 215. Wink

Hey I just finished making the bookmark about an hour ago.  It is absolutely stunning as a scarf.  Great job.

Oooh, that's so gorgeous, I want to make one now. I'm glad you posted what yarn it is -- it looked like Noro but I wasn't sure until you said. Noro is the best! You did a great job with the fan pattern. Thanks for sharing!

I've tried to make this scarf 3 times and failed. I think the pattern I had was broken though. (in a magazine not online)
Very pretty! I love the yarn you used!

prettyknit, that's a great looking scarf! I have been working on the fan stitch lately myself, and it's tricky - you are quite talented!

This is so unique! Did it take alot to adjust the pattern to a scarf? I'm not very good with improvising. I need to read it to do it.

I didn't do much adjust except the first set of pattern in full circular instead of half, the rest just follow exactly as the pattern. The pattern is super easy, I am thinking of crochet another one in  Noro silk garden yarn.

here is the pattern link http://crochetroo.blogspot.com/2006/05/fan-bookmark.html

i love the color/s

edit: with a 5mm hook it came out to be that size or did you have to change the pattern more to make it larger? i want to make one but i have this weird feeling it will be... the size of a book mark O.o; also how many fans did you make to make the total length of the scarf?

I didn't change the pattern at all, I used Noro kureyon with 5mm hook, and it will came out to the scarf size fan, don't worried, unless you use very thin yarn. I didn't count how many fan I do, I just keep crochet until I finish 3 ball of yarn.

What yarn you planning to use?

i was thinking Lion Brand Homespun maybe in Tudor but i am worried it might be too thick plus i want the pattern to show off and with this yarn i'm not sure it really would. so i'm not really sure what yarn i'll be using when i try this (lately i havent been crocheting though so i'd probably start this after my son goes to school) i'll probably have to shop around when i want to start
