2  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Let It Be Scarf on: February 26, 2010 05:32:41 PM
I was an angel for a swap recently, and my partner loved music.  So I had to create another music scarf for her.  I tried a different technique (embroidering on the crochet) but it didn't want to work as well as I wanted it to, so I went back to sewing on the bits.

Here it is!

This is Let It Be by the Beatles.
3  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Bach Scarf on: December 02, 2009 06:06:26 PM
I made this scarf for my swap partner who loves Bach music.  The notes are from Bach's Musette.  She adores it, yay!  I'm thinking of making one for myself, with different notes, and if I have time, I might make one for my sister for xmas. 

A close up of the extra I put on one end, without the fringe being straightened out.

Thanks for looking!
