Hey...so I stumbled across the Counterfeit crochet project while browsing the Design Milk website and I NEED that crochet scarf...

or

How is this done...I mean, how are all the switches in colour done?  Is this tunisian or something I'm not familiar with?

The scarf is graphed. Meaning she carried all those colors around and changed colors when necessary and followed a chart or graph she made. That's the best way i can explain it. It's really tedious work but it comes out looking almost exact like the knitted piece.

Does that mean you carry along the other yarns and crochet over them?  Pulling them up as needed?   Hmm...thank you!  I will have to look into this!!!

Yes that's exactly what i mean! A good place to start I think is the Happy Hooker book, it has these skull pot holders, it uses the same method im talking about and it only uses two colors. It gets way more complicated with more than two colors, and the scarf u want has about...4. So I would start with something like that, which only carries two.

Yikes....This would be the amazing yarn gobbling scarf.  Maybe a potholder is more my speed!  Thanks again for the help!
