i'm glad this scarf actually turned out decent!
i'm no pro with crochet, as i learned the basic stitch about a year ago, so i'm still practicing getting all my stitches to be equal right now.
and i think i did a pretty good job on this one!




it's about 1.8 meters long, and about 7 centimeters wide. and it's got little fringies on the end that you can't see in the photos.
it's made with some old orlon acrylic stuff that my mum has been holding onto for years.
she says it needs to be blocked, since it's all twisty at the ends, but i'm not quite sure how to go about it.

thanks for looking!  Cheesy
and and suggestions or tips on how to get rid of the twisty-ness would be greatly appreciated!

Scarves like these are the reason I may never go back to knitting - I couldn't do the vertical stripes and end up with something nice.
And in terms of stitch evenness, I actually absolutely love the little spirals at the end. 
great job!

Lovely!  And I thought the twistiness was on purpose, I was trying to figure out how you did it!   Cheesy  I like it that way.
