Have you ever noticed that the closer you get to finishing a project the more time and effort you spend to finish it? That is where I am now. I started this Blue and White Dresser Scarf in August of 2009. It was a day spent at a theme park subsidized by work. They gave out discounted ticket prices. I knew that I was not going to run all over the park taking rides with my daughter and her friend so I decided to take a project.
The pattern for this scarf came from the Book, "Favorite Throws & Table Toppers to Crochet". It is titled "Dapple Blossoms". The original pattern is not made with just 2 colors. It uses 7 colors. I loved it with all the different colors but I am making this dresser scarf for my own bedroom. I am using JP Coats Royale Classic Crochet Thread #10 on Bridal Blue and White.
Here is a close up. I love the join as you go pattern. I have about 20 more squares to add and then the pattern will have a white border around the whole piece. I am almost to the white border. Even though there are a lot of threads to bury, you cannot see the joins. I know that the pattern is not going to come loose because I buried the threads going one way and then back another.
It is really pretty and everytime I work on it in public I get marvelous comments.
I can hardly wait to finish because then I will get to work on a new project. I'm thinking about some bookmarks. I am also thinking about some new pillows. I am hunting for just the right pattern. It might be one of these patterns:
