My friend is graduating this week from UCLA and rather than buy him the same expensive purple leis that everyone else will be wearing, I decided to get crafty and whipped this up for him!!!

basically the scarf is a long foundation chain and i went from slip stitch, single crochet stitch, double, triple, double, single, and slip-- so they look like leaves.  I have total ADD when it comes to following a pattern from start to finish, so this was my best attempt to make a leaf design.  Then I started fooling around with flowers, most of them look so unprofessional, some of the flowers are made from scraps of unfinished projects that i sewed up into petals.

I like the colors and think he'll dig it.

It should look great on his gown!  I think I will make more of these for my graduating friends.

And then I took the same idea with the leafy scarf and made this scarf

I was trying to do a line of vines like what Adam and Eve probably wore to cover themselves.  The rose is separate is like a napkin holder and can be pulled through any part of the scarf.  This was the best way I could figure out to make it work-- all loose and stuff.

another blurry pic..

I used two strands of acrylic at once with a big hook which is why it went by so fast. The rose  was made with three strands of acrylic and took less than 15 minutes to make.

I'll probably play around with this motif some more, since it's so fast to make these.  I made both of these in less than 24 hours with plenty breaks inbetween.  The second scarf took less than half a day.

If anyone has ideas on how to improve this scarf or this leafy idea, let me know, I've seen a lot of great flower leaf designs on this board!  It's inspiring!

Thanks for looking!

Awesome scarves!

Maybe try using a different yarn for the flowers?  (like a boa or ribbon type).  Other than that, it looks totally great to me...  Grin
