Recently I came up with my own little inspirational idea. It started as a time killer while I couldn't sleep for a few weeks straight >.>  But it ended up meaning much more to me so I decided to take it all a step further and make more for others. The scarf started out as something I could do with minimal light at night so that I could crochet and not wake up my family.

The pattern it's self is extremely basic, the only original thing I have done is the "braiding" of the yarns up the sides as I continue the scarf. The first few of the scarves are very basic in the sense that they are just two colors. But that's one of the most inspiration parts of these scarves. I love being able to come up with many ideas to change it up.

The basic Zun Scarf looks like this...


(Coffee and Cafe colors)


(The word ZUN sewn on)


(Purple and Green Zun Scarf, with ZUN sewn on)


(Blue and Green Zun Scarf, with ZUN sewn on)


As you can see the scarf is striped with two colors. The scarf is approximately 2-2.5 inches wide and 8 foot long. Making it great for wrapping multiple times or wrapping once and draping it long down both sides. I also sew the word "ZUN" into the back, bottom of one side.

I have completed three basic Zun Scarves which I have tried multiple ideas for inspiration on them. So far I have done little crocheted stars, circles, triangles, leaves, and more. I have used buttons to decorate the bottoms. I have done tassels along the bottoms of each side. I love the fact that with such a simple scarf there are SO many different possibilities.

Possibility of the crocheted stars


Although I prefer my Zun scarf just basic with stripes. I haven't done anything to it.

I created a saying to go with my Zun scarves, since for me it is a great source of inspiration. "Inspiration to Thrive for your own Happiness."
