I recently fell in love with this dainty little patchwork scarf at Anthropologie with hand crocheted edges. Handmade in Morrocco, it cost a pretty penny-$248.00 for something I thought would easily made in a couple of hours. I cheated the edges a little, just using a yellow blanket stitch around the edge instead of a complicated crochet stitch. I also made it an infinity scarf because I love the way infinity scarves drapes without the end of the scarf to deal with.

|Straight stitched together, then folded and stitched on the reverse side 1/4 inch in from the first stitch to seal the edge.|

|Blanket-stitch around the edge. At first I thought it wasn't going to be noticeable but it really is a pretty finish and really stands out.|
