1  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Re: Simple layered scarf with detachable flower. on: December 08, 2011 10:48:53 AM
 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!

When I'm not making things... my day job is to sell video games... I have a TON of customers that would go nuts over this. It's absolutely beautiful!

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 love the color of the first one... do you know what color or dye lot it was?
