Yellow Trimmed Patchwork Scarf

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.



My inspiration with a steep $248.00 price-tag.



Lovely vintage fabric samples from my dear friends at Zinnia Crafts in Pasadena.

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

The full length of the scarf.  It's final size is 48" long x 13" wide

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.
