I was window shopping online the other day for gift ideas and came across a scarf at ModCloth for $49.99... which I thought was a bit expensive. After taking a second glance, I figured I could easily make one for a fraction of the cost to send to my bestie in Chicago.

Here's the original at ModCloth that I based the design off of: http://www.modcloth.com/shop/scarves/oh-what-a-scarf

It took me about 3 hours to finish the whole project... The flower turned out a bit smaller than I wanted... I should've added another round of petals but I've never crocheted a flower before so it was a learning experience... The flower, just like the one at ModCloth, is a detachable barrette so it can be taken off or worn in the hair. I might even make a set of flowers for her to change the color of it once in a while or wear a couple on it at a time since they turned out smaller.

Here's the completed project:

Let me know what you think! Smiley I need to hurry up and mail it before I decide to keep it for myself (although nothing's stopping me from making another!)...

 I have to ask....  Have people gone crazy???  I can't believe anyone would actually pay $50 for some chains & a crochet flower~!!!  

You're completely right. It was so simple to make. It's just a single crochet in ten multiple strands or I suppose it could just be one very long strand of single crochet and then gathered into ten strands. I tried to just follow a pattern on the flower and leaves.  I love the way it turned out in these colors too.


Thanks everyone for the encouragement!!! I was showing it off at work and I have an employee who wants me to make one for his fiance, my boss wants a couple for her mom and sister, and all of my other friends are jealous and wish it was for them!
