Can someone help me figure this out? Looks super simple to make a knock-off. 

Make a ring.
Round 1: 10 dc on ring.
Round 2: 2 dc in each st (20 total)
Round 3: *2 dc, 1 dc* repeat until the end.

make a zillion of the motif and then join?

It also has a thin edging to it. Wow, that would take a while to finish. It'd be cool if you did the little circles in co-ordinating colors.

Wow, there's got to be a better way besides making the motifs and joining them separately.  I'm sure an innovative crocheter could find a way to join during the creation process, I just am not sure how.  But you could make something like that by doing squares of straight dc... 

You'd make a base chain, then make enough chain to go around the corner, up to the point of a square, then make enough chain for the edge of a square and slip stitch into the base chain where the bottom point would go, then dc back and forth on the small section of chain until you had a square, then chain for the bottom edge of the next square, slip into the base chain, etc until you've completed the row, then do some more chaining, and on the next row, slip stitch into the points of the squares from the row below.  I suppose it wouldn't be as delicate looking, but the overall effect would be very similar and it would be MUCH less mess!  I'll see if I can come up with an example since I'm sure I'm not explaining it well...

Wow. Love the scarf, hate the price. Who honestly spends that much on a scarf?!

Sorry, I can really help you on how to do it though Sad

Wow that is pretty amazing....the only way I could think would be like your idea....making a zillion little circles, joining them together, then doing a st all the way around or something.

I might actually try that when I get home Smiley

I think this would work:

Make the first motif--they really do look like squares except that there doesn't seem to be the ch 2 or 3 between the stitches in the corners that you'd find in a granny square. When you create the next motif, on the last row, at a corner, chain one, sl or sc into the corner of the first square, ch 1, then continue working on the second square. When you create the third one, do the same thing, and so on. Just be sure that you are joining them in a diagonal way, as in the scarf.

At least I think that would work LOL I love working in motifs simply because I can carry my work anywhere and it can be contained in my regular purse instead of carting around a separate workbag Smiley

What about a yo-yo scarf?  I know this isn't the exact same, but it's an idea.  Mimicking the same layout as the one at bluefly shouldn't be that difficult.

That is really cute.  The thought of joining all those tiny squares makes me think the price isn't all that bad!  And the yarn looks tiny, almost like thread.
If you have the patience for it though, you could totally do it. Make a bunch in a row in one direction, the add upward with each additional row? Or just make rows and then sew them together.  Then add the edging.

wow that just makes my hand cramp just thinking about it

yeah that is some seriously thin yarn...you could probably get some machine knitting yarn that comes on a cone pretty cheap on ebay

to me it looks like they joined the disks with a sl stitch as they went

I would work the disks individually. then leave enough yarn on each to do a simple chain or sl stitch all the way around & go back & attach them at once. That seems like a lot of work. You could always cheat & sew them together.

isnt it convenient that the closeup pic doesnt show a section where it is joined
