Hot on the heels of my sweater boot success, Roll Eyes I decided to make myself my very own paperchain scarf.

I decided on crochet, cos I wanted a fast result, so I used hdc's to make a chain, and joined each one to the previous one as I went along.

No action shots, I tried to get my housemate to pose, but after she rejected the bazillionth pic I took, I gave up!

It wraps around my neck twice, with loads of hanging-ness (if that makes sense!)

Close up of crochet (sorry bout the blurry-ness):

My housemate's 13 yo cousin was staying as I was finishing it off, and she kept gazing wistfully at it, so I knocked her out some sweat bands to keep her happy, and make sure I got to keep my scarf, lol!

Thanx for looking guys!
