Free Falling Scarf Necklace ~ The Pattern is Coming!
It's August. It's hot. It's muggy. It's also the time of year when I think about what I still want to accomplish. On the top of my list is pattern writing. I have a couple pieces that I have committed to making into patterns and I am happy to have started the process.
I am well on the way to completing my Free Falling Scarf Necklace. I just finished this version in blues and greys yesterday afternoon. Before publishing, I want to make up a couple more. I want to have pictures with only five flowers rather than seven and I also want to design two more motifs to show how the scarf can be personalized to different styles and tastes.
For example, this Hyperbolic Mobius Motif will also be included on the pattern. I thought an abstract, three-dimensional shape would be fun. I haven't quite decided what the third motif will be. Perhaps something tubular, or geometric. I just want to show a few choices. I think most crocheters have favorite leaves, flowers and other basic shapes. I'm hoping they will enjoy embellishing this design.
This scarf reflects my new focus on lightweight accessories. I love the idea of wearing fiber pieces like jewelry no matter what the season!
