The part that Kim wanted redesigned was the attachment points. She, like many of us hate the weaving in at the end of a project. Nicky's scarf had three attachment points for each element. Man that's a lot!!! Anyway, I came up with a version that only had 5 total attachment points. Here's how it happens:
Yo-Yo Scarf Re-Imagined:
44.5 inches long - 6 inches wide
Size I crochet hook or size to make a 2 inch flower from side to side with following pattern.
Patons Shetland Tweed Chunky yarn - 2 balls - you will have some leftover. Size 5 Bulky yarn of choice.
Each element is a crocheted circle. I used plastic rings as my center points in order to give the scarf more shape and form. The rings do not deter in the flexibility of the scarf, but they do keep the scarf from being bunched up and tangled.
If you chose to use the plastic rings (found at any craft store - boxes of 15- quite inexpensive) you will need - 60/1 inch round plastic rings.
***Note - make sure you don't twist your circles as you go or you'll have a bear of a time making it lay flat.***
* --* up and down until you get about six inches of yarn left and weave that through the inner circle of the circle you are working with and snip the tail (this is woven in enough that it will not come undone with regular use.) Continue in this fashion until you attached all the circles. Do the same thing to attach the end caps.
Block as you see fit. Wear in peace and joy!!!
