Crochet FO - mossy spiral scarf

This is my first finished laceweight project. The yarn is Shimmer from Knitpicks in Bayou (making this also my first project with Knitpicks yarn - I like!). And the pattern can be found here.

It's really simple, but I love all the ruffles. I'm not normally a ruffles person, but around my neck, this just feels like a very luxurious, feminine version of a cravat.

It's really long too. In the picture above, it's looped around in almost two circles and then trails down. Which is pretty much how I wear it.

I finished this a month or two ago (the Knitpicks order was my Christmas gift from my husband), and I've been wearing it a lot. I have a green velvet jacket that I bought (back in college?) that this goes beautifully with.

Definitely one of my favorite FO's. (I'm also thinking that a version of this in their favorite colors might make a good gift for friends and family members. What do you think?)

Peace of Christ to you,
Jessica Snell
