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.

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.

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.

Sorry for the bad image i took this with my phone camera when my computer was down. I am debating if I want to put the pattern on here not sure to many people would be interested it is using size 11 seed beads and I am using size 30 thread and a size 14 steel hook.  I am also posting this via flickr for the same reason.  I will show finished scarf when done. There is some lovely embroidery on this scarf.
