This gift set I made for mom for Xmas was done with yarn I had left over from the Sunflower Afghan I made for her birthday.
This originally called for two colors, but I like the look of the 3 of them also. The sproingies were a bit tedious, but they were also easy and I can see me using them for something else (*cough*cthulhu*cough*).
It’s a short scarf, but my length matched the one in the photo, so it’s supposed to be short. If someone wanted to make it longer they’d have to knit just the right amount of repeats with the center strip so that the horizontal panels fit right, I guess.
I added extra rows and increases to this so it’d be more of a bucket shape than tight around the head. I forget which flower I used for the embellishment, but I sewed a bin to the back of it so it can be removed or exchanged for another flower later. I still have yarn left, after all.
