I have been crocheting alot lately, here are a few things that I made.

This is a scarf I made for my girlfriend, she picked out the colors; it is various shades of green, a darker and a lighter purple and a yellowish-orange. I used all different sizes and textures of yarn. The scarf is formed by granny squares crocheted together. No two are alike, and some are rectangular while some are hexagonal. I went through the patterns in "Illustrated Patchwork Crochet" by Bella Scharf. Sorry I don't have a picture of it on her and I didn't lay out, it is long, but you get the idea.





I bought this dress from Goodwill a while ago intending to wear it, but I realized that it needed help so I cut it shorter. The unfinished edge looked bad so I decided to crochet an edge on it. I used a brownish wool that looked good with the brown of the sunflowers. The pattern is just double-crochet then a few chains for two rows and then finished with a picot edging. Another thing I was thinking of is cutting it and crocheting between the top and bottom sections in the center of the dress where the tie is, but I am not sure how to do that. Any tips would be appreciated. Excuse my bra in the first pic.





Last but not least, legwarmers! They are made of purple and pink wool. You can't quite tell in the picture, but for each I used two colors held together to give a nice effect of more depth to the colors. One is purple and pink and the other is pink and light pink. The main part was made using the open shell pattern from "Step-by-Step Crochet" by Emily Wildman. There is a simple ribbing at the top.



Thanks for looking!:)
