FO : Chain scarf
I played with this idea for some time, and finally created this rather excentric scarf. I made it for a friend who likes excentric things.

Now that I got a cam, I can take some pictures of my other scarves as well.

(Oops, almost forgot the link)

Worn, it looks like this.

In case you're wondering, the middle part is where the ends are hidden. Didn't want to weave them in, so I just knotted everything together and crocheted another piece over the original central piece to hide the ends. That part is a little thicker, but generally hidden when the scarf is worn, and wearing the scarf, one doesn't notice it at all.

That's one thing I never would have thought of to do with crocheted chains. That's pretty awesome.

Ah thank you all.
Do you really think it's good?

Because when I was actually crocheting it, I was telling myself "Oh god, this is just TOO simple to be good...."

It's true that it's different, and it was meant to be a stash buster. If you have lots of different bouts of yarn lying around, you can just try this :D (especially yarn you think you'll never get rid off...)
I finished it in 1 day.
