Carnation Oya scarf finished

tie on side
tie in front I finished that carnation scarf.  I like it a lot it is amazing how much weight beads can add to a simple little neck scarf.  This was crocheted in one continues pass and then sewn onto the scarf with black thread through the single row chain that goes from flower to flower.  The beads are placed in reverse order on the crochet thread before crocheting it.  it is neat to have a multi color scarf edging with out using multi color thread.  But it does take a long time to string the beads and a long to crochet and shift the beads on the thread as you crochet .  the nice thing about the weight of the beads is before the scarf was so light it never laid nice on the neck area.  Now it lays out well and looks very pretty.

snow white rose

oya rose lace 
I finished my rose project and noticed my friend had posted her pattern of roses too.  We had been talking about the m for a while and I got impatient and did my own then she did one.  Even thought these look real similar they are constructed using entirely differnt patterns.   So I think it was good for me to do hers as well as mine.  Both have things that are unique to them.oya rose lace
Here is the scarf I put them on.   I have had this scarf since high school I wore it in my hair then.  This one was crocheted using the thread that my friend recommended as I did finally find my thread box of Turkish threads.  I used a size 20 steel hook.  it was interesting because with this type of thread you do not weave your ends in but you burn them and melt them to secure them if not careful you can burn your lace I will need practice at that as yes I did burn my lace and had to re-crochet a leaf because of that.

Lavonda Rose Oya scarf done

tied to the side

as head scarfI finished the scarf I started the other day.  It ended up with  53 roses.  My oldest daughter made two of the roses to try them out also she finished all the the thread but 4 so I would not have to do that.

If you do it with synthetic thread like nylon or polyester which is what is used in Turkey you melt the ends and that part goes faster  but you  tend to burn your fingers too and if not careful singe your crochet.
I  think the scarf came out pretty well myself.  I will enjoy wearing it.  I think it is rather feminine in appearance with the delicate flowers dancing around as a person walks or moves.

worn as neck scarf

This makes me want to add more edgings to my scarfs.  I so love this  just says feminine all over it.
