the pompom-scallop scarf is finished ~ yay!
and I must say I am very happy with it
it's texture ~ warm and wooly yet not itchy
it's length ~ not too long and perfect to wear indoors
it's colours ~ they go very well with jeans, grey, black, dark blue, it goes with all tones I wear basically.
the pompoms worked out as a cute little touch, they make me smile.

I used a crochet hook size 4.5 mm, that's larger than the suggested 3.5 mm. with this larger hook the shawl became more flexible, fluffy and wearable.
the scarf measures 21x150 cm which equals 8x60 inches
the scallop pattern is perfectly done by Sandra on her blog here. I wanted the scallops to hang with their points down on both ends of my neck, therefore I ended up making two half scarfs and joined them.
I made two half scallop parts, as long as I could alternate the colours in the pattern I choose. 23 scallops on each half part to be exact. with the left over yarn I made stripes, still working on the two halves. the stripes vary in colour but are the same size. in the middle I joined them by picking up the loops on one end and make single crochet stitches all along, in red on one side and blue on the other.
bottom edging: attach same coloured thread to the corner of your scarf. make sure you are facing the front of the bottom scallop when making this edging. repeat *slip stitch, single crochet, half double crochet, treble crochet, chain 2, slip stitch in top of treble, double crochet, half double crochet, single crochet*.
pompoms: attach contrasting coloured yarn in chain 2 loop, chain 2, bobble stitch of 7 double crochet leaving last loop on hook, yarn over and pull through all 8 loops on hook in once. chain 1 and weave in ends.
happy day to you!
