My TEENaged daughter has been bugging me for a scarf like this, but I haven't figured out a way to make the candy dots without making a mess of carried yarn on the back side.  

You did a great job.  I sure would love to know how you did the colors so neatly. (after I posted, I read how you did it...but did you do 1 bobble at a time and tie off or did you manage to do the same color with a single thread?)

Nice job! Love the colors!

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?

Thank-You everyone for the wonderful feedback!

Veggiechef- do you have any suggestions for care of things made of RedHeart? I read the label but I've heard mixed stories about actual care.

Smittenheart- Since I've seen Twinkie-Chan's website, I really am seeing ideas EVERYWHERE!!!

Everkutz- I did one bobble at a time, treating the front of my work like the previous row and working in a circle, decreasing to make it round. It was really tedious lol, but the result was only a tiny little x on the backside of my work under each "button". I had an Idea to help if I ever made another one, You could probably get some buttons -Real ones for like a sweater- and put them on the reverse or just use them to be the "buttons".  If that was confusing I apologize, the word button covers so many basis!

Again thank-you everyone!  Grin

this is so cute  Cheesy

the flavors are supposed to be cherry (pink), lime (blue), and lemon (yellow)

but i think they all kinda taste the same!

Of course the Snozberries taste like Snozberries Cheesy lol

I'm glad you all like it, like I said I''m just starting out so I was really nervous about posting but I'm glad I did! I wrapped up this scarf last night and put a tag on it that says "Olde Tyme Candies" and tapes a package of the actual Candy Buttons on there so she gets a treat as well as something useful. But I remember not liking the pink ones myself :/

Does anyone know if they're supposed to be certain flavors?

My 18yo would love this! She loved those candies as a child and has happy memories of them. I am going to have to give this a try. Thank you for the inspiration. Smiley

That is such a cute scarf!
As far as Bobbles go with color variations....might I suggest a book I purchased called "From Needles to Hook-Complete Guide to Converting Knit Patterns to Crochet"  from The Needlecraft Shop.
This book has both knit and crochet instructions for each pattern, stitch, etc.
There is a Gum Balls Stitch Pattern that would probably be beneficial to you.
