hi everyone,

i made this scarf for a friend, i'm going to give it to her tomorrow, i actually was going to give it to her this way, but everyone who sees it asks me: how will you finish the scarf?

please tell me what you think, is it ok this way, or does it need something else, and if so, what do you suggest? i still have a bit of yarn left from all 3 colors.

thanx a lot



so you're going to think i'm crazy, but i gave it to her as it is then i changed my mind and added a flower! here's the end result:

I think it looks pretty, I love the colors.  But if you are worried that it doesn't look finished you could add a decorative edge or some crochet flowers. Something like this :

http://crochet.about.com/library/weekly/aa090598.htm The second edging in yellow. 

http://www.angelfire.com/oh/crochethook/patts/baby.html I know this one is for baby blankets and it's shown with thread but the 2nd and 4th are really simple ones that wouldn't take very long and they would look very nice.

http://crochet.about.com/library/weekly/aa012503.htm This one is nice but maybe a little too elaborate for a scarf.

http://www.angelfire.com/art/bubamara/free/lflower.html Here's a flower.  You could just search for one on Craftster, I know there are some around here somewhere or you could even make one up yourself.

Anyways, as I said before it looks great just like that but you can just play around with it or leave it.  The choice is up to you.  Have fun! Cheesy

I'm all for simple clean lines, so i like it the way it is.  But i agree that a decorative edging (picot or something) or crocheted flowers would look nice also.  Does the giftee tend towards simple styling or more fru-fru?  that might help you figure out whether to add to it.  I always end up at a point of "will anything more be too much?"

if you can't be a good example then you'll just have to be a horrible warning.

I think its cute as is, myself.  It'd also look cute with a pompom sewn so it's centered in the round end.  I know that sounds silly, but pompoms are kinda in right now, and I think that'd look cute.

Sometimes I post at Lothruin.com!

Maybe a crocheted flower but I think it looks great as is.  But a little embellishement never really hurt anyone.

it is super cute!  the flower is perfect.  I love how you packaged it.  you are such a nice friend.  now I want to make one too.  did you use a pattern?  is that sc all around? someone else was trying to do this kind of scarft and said the edges kept curling; you didn't have a problem with that?

sigh. something else to add to my ever-growing list of projects.
