This is the bigest thing I have ever crocheted. It is a triangle shaped shoal, its longest age is a little longer then my spread arms so I can cowere my self in it completely. I is very warm and cozy. It took me more that 3 weeks of crocheting ( bus , betwine classes, instead of watching TV, and one day of national Holiday. UFF Wink) Big challenge was also the pattern that was written fore it (I used only shames before) and to mack things more complicated the whoas mistake in the print so I'm awfully proud of my self.
It is hard to tack a photo of the thing that is so big so hire are smaller bits.

To mack that scarf i used pattern fore a trim I loved it fore that leafs like look. I added that lighter shade of green stripes after the whole scarf was done to mack it more wind protecting.

And that is small pouch I made for my friend but i love the pattern so much i probably mack more of those.It doesn't have a lining i just stuffed it so you can see better how it looks.

olenka, those are so beautiful. I especially love the colors of the scarf. And, the patterns in the shawl and pouch are great too. They look so professional...I'm inspired! Did you work from patterns or make them up yourself?
Thanks for showing pix

Great job! I especially love the green scarf - it really does give the impression of leaves.

Wow girls that was fast response I feel weary faltered. I was weary anxious about posting those hire because we have so many great crocheters hire that have weary "not your grandmother cachet"ideas  Grin

http://www.7ya.ru/photos/private-showphoto.aspx?RubrID=39976&PhotoID=323765&ob=0 That is pattern I used fore a scarf. In second row you mask double crochet and chain many times (sorry English patterns are still tricky fore me) ant that is the place in with i stacked stripe of double crochet of lighter green. But you probably cloud put ribbons there and that would look girly.

And hire is pattern fore a pouch, It is pretty fast project it took me around 4 hours to complite.

Your projects are absolutely stunning, olenka! I may have to try working from the chart for the scarf!


Her dirty paws and furry coat,
She ran down the forest slope.
The forest of talking trees,
They used to sing about the birds and the bees.
The bees had declared a war,
The sky wasn't big enough for them all.
