Tunisian Scarflet
I don't know if you all have seen the Pidge, a knitted neck scarf that sells for about $300!!! Anyway, I saw it and thought... that would look GREAT in Tunisian Crochet. I wasn't about to spend a ton on pure cashmere but I did spend $14 on 2 skeins of LB Organic Cotton that is SO soft. I haven't bought the buttons yet but I just couldn't wait to post a pic.

I'm working on writing up the pattern. It took me some trial and error to figure out how to do button holes in Tunisian :lol

Hmm... I've been waiting a while to respond because I wasn't really sure how you meant that comment. Is there a reason you say that it's a PITY that it is crocheted? Just trying to figure out what you meant?

I'd love to have the pattern when you get it worked up- I've been thinking all afternoon now about tunisian crochet and button holes. "how DID she do that part?!"

I was thinking slip stitches, but I've never tried that in tunisian.

what a great gift that would make!

I just finished up the pattern this afternoon. You can find it on my blog (click the link in my siggy)

I'm glad you like it!

I love your version of the Pidge! I'd been thinking about the kind of yarn to make one, and tunisian crochet makes a very lovely one!!! Not sure what that other poster was on about, though, not your fault. I hope it was nothing, or I read it wrong or something. I'm off to check your blog! Thanks so much for sharing your pattern!! samm

I like yours more than theirs! Thanks for writing up the pattern.

Sure hope they kept very hot studio lights on that girl!

BTW, I think the other poster probably doesn't know how to crochet?
