After being totally inspired by Chimes a fellow Craftster
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?action=profile;u=104683

Who generously put together this excellent tutorial
http://chimesdesign.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2011/12/chimesdesignSnapScarf.pdf

I made this Asymmetrical Snap Scarf and so far have gotten 3 compliments on it despite the fact:
1. I'm in Australia
2. It's Summer
3. My office is so C-O-L-D nobody thinks it's strange that I'm wearing it.

(This is my first post on Craftster so I'm not allowed photos yet  Smiley)
The internal fabric moved around a bit and seemed a bit loose, (most likely this is because I didn't pin it )
but once I put the 1/4" seam on the outside of the scarf this seem go away.

Using the hammer to put in the Snaps is fun but you really need to give them a solid whack otherwise they rattle.

Let me know your comments.

Oh thanks for the feedback, I ended up having to put in two button holes instead as the material I choose wasn't strong enough to handle the pulling of the snaps.

I am still able open the Tutorial link (in Internet Explore 9)

If you'd like to email me I have it saved as a PDF.
It was super fun and easy to make.
