This is a big-drama, quick-crochet scarf. It can be made as long or as short as the maker wants. The open leaf design lends itself to all but the coldest weather. It provides the right accent for many occasions - it could be worked in something shiny for evening, cottons for spring, wool for fall to winter. It's as attractive and compelling in black as it is in white.
This continuous, lacy chain of leaves works with any yarn weight/hook combination to create a signature neckpiece. Shown in worsted weight wool and bulky cotton, this is a true season spanner that may be light or warm, formal or informal, depending on your yarn selection.

Long, long ago, far, far away, when the subway cost a quarter and the corner drugstore was also an ice cream parlor where a little girl sipped vanilla egg creams, her mother, who made her wonderful clothes, showed her how to crochet. Her father taught her how to solder and make a tuner.
