Irish Crochet Scarf

I bought a crochet book a few weeks back because I loved this scarf that was on the front of the cover.  It was a beautiful shade of aqua and they had used Irish Crochet.  I could not find the exact yarn that they had used, but I tried to get close.  It was 15 flower motifs and you had to crochet them together as you go.  The pattern was horrible! (Or maybe it was me)  I had to improvise on three-quarters of the scarf. 



I got to the fancy picot edging and disliked it immensely!!!  I took it out four or five times.  Trying different stitches, moving it to different places and I did not like any of them.



So I decided to keep it simple and just leave the edging off completely.  I love the color and feel of the scarf.  It is just not near as fancy as it's pattern counterpart.  I don't know if I will try anything else in that book.  I guess I will have to see.

  2. It's so frustrating when pattern instructions cannot be deciphered,I had the same experience recently with a pattern for a crochet rose. Your scarf looks good despite all the hassle with the pattern.

  3. Looks great. I understand your frustration. I am currently crocheting newborn caps. I had to modify the patter because I didn't like the "knots" that would end up under a delicate little head as the baby lay anywhere.

    Found you from Sew Many Ways!

  4. This is beautiful!! I think you did a wonderful job.

    I learned how to knit last summer and I made a hat for my husband, I'm still working on his matching scarf and I'm in the middle of making my stepson his scarf.
