I've been playing with different compositions of stitches to see what manner of shapes I can make. First in the Stem of Leaves Mini Scarf, then the Loops Mini Scarf. This one is closer to how I had hoped the Loops scarf would turn out. Since I liked the Loops mini, I wasn't too worried about it not matching the picture in my head. That didn't keep me from wanting the scarf I imagined in the first place, though, so I played around with the concept enough and came up with my Dots mini scarf.
Dots Mini Scarf
Gauge: 1 complete loop is 1 1/4 inches
Chain 6, join into loop. Make 12 sc in loop and join with a sl st.
All other loops
*Chain 7, join into loop using the 6th chain from hook. Chain 1, make 12 sc in new loop, join through back of ch 1and the loop immediately behind it.** Sl st in the top of the next 7 scs. This puts your working end across from where you started.* Repeat until mini scarf has 42 loops. Then work one more loop ending at **. Bind off, weave in ends.
This will probably be the last mini with circles in it. I've done three that way now, and it's starting to bore me. There are so many other shapes, I just have to figure out how to make them wearable. Maybe I'll start making some knitted patterns. That should give my brain a work out. So far I am much better at free-forming with crochet. Knitting still takes more thought and that just slows me down.
