Notes

This Crocodile Stitch Scarf is right up my alley! I adore this pattern from Bonita Patterns on Etsy, 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!

If you like my version, use the same pattern, just stop crocheting when you like the fit and size!
