Crochet scarf

I am trying a lot of different and (for me) new crochet pattern. I am not allowing myself too much time for this but it is quite nice while having some coffee with friends :)

This one was made with two threads (50g / 150 m) at once with a crochet hook size 6 mm (german). I just played around with this "bubble" pattern. It creates a really sturdy kind of scarf (which I like). If I am doing this again I would probably just make it not so wide.... and a little bit longer (just a few cm, but I run out of yarn ^^).

But long as it is you can also wear it like this :)

 The buttons are stiched on the side so it'll create some kind of triangle when closed.

The buttons are made out of fimo (polymer clay). I stamped the dark brown fimo with a wooden fabric stamp and made little holes in the middle with a knitting needle. After baking the buttons I used metallic acrylic paint for the surfaced (Yes, I just applied it with my fingertips ^^)

The buttons without the paint...

...and all the bubbles!


  1. This is so cute! <3 You're really good at that. I wish I would put some more time into my knitting skills and learn some fancy patterns as well.
    You know, if you don't mind I think I'd simply love a crocheted, coarse-meshed triangle-shawl <3

    By the way, I went looking for the fabric I used for the axolotl, but it's not available anymore, so I'm afraid we'll really have to look together since it would be a shame if I'd choose a fabric you might not like quite so well :)

  2. So gorgeous! The patterned buttons complement the bubbly scarf so well. Love it much!

  3. I agree! A very pretty scarf and I love your hand made buttons. I must try making some out of FIMO one day once I've become sick of recycling. :) Did I know you crocheted? Hmmm... I think this may be your first crochet piece that I've seen. Yet another craft in common, Claire!

  7. Is there no end to what you can do? The buttons are ace, but the scarf even tops them. Whow...

  8. This looks so warm and cozy! Love the buttons and the texture.. Thanks for sharing with the Pink Hippo Party!
