Fan Bookmark Scarf

The FO's are off to a great start in 2008... I have been tickled about everything that has come off the needles and this little crochet scarf is no exception. Originally, I was just using this yarn (Knit Picks Shine- Cloud) to see if I could follow the instructions for this little bookmark- I thought they would make cute gifts. After completing a few repeats, I realized that I could follow the pattern and it would make a cute scarf. I had just enough yarn to complete 25 repeats of the pattern to make the fan bookmark scarf length. The Gaming One refers to it as a 'decoration' because 'a scarf with holes in it' is useless...

Decoration or not, it does keep me warm and I think it looks cute as well! I attached a shank button to a safety pin and held both to the inside of the scarf. I then used the holes as buttonholes and inserted the button through all layers- easy peasy no sew button!

It really is a decoration! It is beautiful. If I have time I may have to try to whip one up myself. I think it would dress up any casual outfit and the color is perfect.
