As soon as my teen daughter saw this scarf, she HAD to have it. I ordered the pattern in the fall of 2007 from here:  http://www.fablehandmadegoods.com .  Yes, it is now January 2009 and I finally finished it last night!  It wasn't difficult at all.  It was very monotonous making leaf after leaf after leaf!  I modified the pattern a bit, making it much longer and added more leaves and acorns.  Plus, I changed the leaf colors a bit so it would be more colorful.  I also modified the acorn pattern and made the stem and cap all one piece. I also used 2 strands of yarn, since 1 strand was very thin and flimsy.  Enough chatting, here is the scarf!

and a close up of the leaves and acorn

She wore it while out shopping today and in less than 20 minutes, five people had complimented her on the scarf, and one person even stopped her to talk about the scarf! 

Thanks for looking and your comments are appreciated!

Crocheting is like prostitution.  First you do it for love, and then for a few close friends, and then for money.  Maybe that is why they call us Hookers?

I love it! It reminds me of some I've seen on etsy and I really liked. I keep meaning to make one but never find the time.
