Wow, that looks amazing. I can't wait until I'm skilled enough to do freeform stuff like that. Man, I'd love one of those in a fuzzy mohair yarn, in pinks!

Really cool - do the segments flatten out with time?

Wow, thanks all for the sweet comments ! I really didn't think so many people would like it .. !! Grin

Now, as for a pattern, I don't think I could give an actual  pattern (with row/stitch count ect..) but here's basically how I did it. (Please feel free to PM me with any wording suggestions/questions, english is not my native language and I'm especially not used to crochet patterns !!)

I used mixed yarns, which was cool because I could tug all the knots and yarn ends inside the scarf..  Wink  It ended up being pretty stiff, so it would rather well hold its shape. But I found that to make it look all nice again if it flattened too much, I just had to flatten all the bobbles like and accordion, and that was it ! magic..

Now for the instructions :

I used my good old 5 mm crochet hook, chain 4 or 5 I think, place a marker at what will be the beg of a "row",

then start increasing like so *sc in each sc  for first 2 st,  sc2 in next sc*, and continue this way until you got 5 rows of increasing, then switch to * sc in each sc for next 3 st, sc2 in next sc*,

next, 2 rows straight  *sc in each sc*,

next start decreasing again, one row like so : *sc in each sc for next 3 st, sc2tog (don't even know how you're supposed to say that !!) then  * sc in each sc for next  2 st, sc2tog* until you've got only 5 stitches left.

You're now at the narrower straight part. Make just one row straight without increase/decrease (= sc in next 5 sc)

... and start increasing again for another "bobble" !!  Continue until the "scarf" is the right size for your taste.

And to finish, I made 2 tassels with the same yarn mix, that I attached at each end.

I absolutely LOVE it. It's totally something I would wear. Then again, I'm a bit more crazy than most. Thanks for the inspiration.

Thanks for the tut.  It is quite interesting.  Something to creatively use up all my yarn scraps while creating something that isn't insanely boring to create or typical to wear. 

Thanks.  Thanks.  Thanks. 


Now have a snack!  Snack on!
