Many of you fellow Craftsters have seen my first rainbow scarf, seen here:  http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=248500.msg2754580#msg2754580 .  I've enjoyed seeing the rainbow scarves that everyone has made.


Here is my second version of the Rainbow Scarf, complete with a Pot O'Gold on one end and the standard clouds on the other end.  This scarf is done with 2 strands of the sport weight yarn because my daughter wanted a heavier, thicker scarf.  I created the "pot" (it's a simple circle with a rim) and then raided my button box for all the goldtone buttons I could find.  The buttons were only sewn on one side of the scarf for 2 reasons:  the scarf was getting heavy from the buttons I had all ready sewn, and I ran out of goldtone buttons!



Here's a close-up of the  pot of gold


Hope you like it!

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?

What a great idea!  I love bright colors, and the gold buttons add a fun bit of sparkle.  This scarf seems like the perfect way to keep warm on a dull gray day.  Smiley

*Grinch smile* This would a a really amusing gift for my step-dad. We often refer to him as a leprechaun because he has the most ridiculous good luck and is Irish.... he he he I have to send this to my mum.

That's adorable! You need a little plush leprechaun to guard the gold! ^__^

your daughter is so lucky. perhaps because she has a pot of gold, but probably because she has an awesome, crafty mom.
