50 Shades of Grey Crocodile Stitch Scarf

What advice would you give someone starting this project? I adore this pattern from Bonita Patterns, but I feel the full size scarf is just too bulky for large girl like my self. Bulk on a plus size is NOT what we need. I decided to make a smaller version of the pattern. It looks a bit bib(ish) to me at the moment. I think I'll add a tassel at the point. Worn under the coat would be pretty, but I prefer my scarves and shawls on the outside of my jackets. I've also added a button and just poked it through the other tail. I think it looks nice worn either way. Prism Sparkle from Mary Maxim in Cobblestone is lovely. It is DK weight (3). The photos do not do the yarn justice as you cannot see the bits of subtle sparkle. This pattern is perfect for gradient yarns as it shows them off beautifully!

Q&A with Sheila Zachariae

Miming123 asked:
May I ask where you purchased this yarn from? It's beautiful! I have seen the green colored yarn as well and have been Googling to find where I can purchase it. Thank you
Sheila Zachariae answered:
Sure! If you look in the notes section, I mention that it's from Mary Maxim, Prism Sparkle in Cobblestone. I believe I used 2 skeins. Good luck and I'd love to see it when you're done!
