A Fancy Scarf

I found a pattern through one of the groups I belong to that struck me as so different and so unique I had to try it. You can't see it real well in the photo but the gray is really a shiny silver yarn with a strand of black mohair along with it. It's a very intriguing design so far, and not difficult at all. The straight edge at the bottom is one long side while the shamrock clusters are the other long edge so when you wear it, you get this great lacy look of shamrocks all arond your neck and shoulders.

Hey, it was spring yesterday and I had to try something new (even though there were tons of other things I should have been doing).

POST EDIT: Pattern can be found here and it's free.

This scarf is beautiful! Can you list the designer's name and pattern? I'd like to have it too.

Thank you so much for posting a link to the scarf! I'll have to get my Aunt to give me a refresher course on crocheting. All I can remember is how to chain stitch and how to single crochet. The rest is a blur.

That is really pretty, Karen. I wonder what it would look like in BLACK for the "black and white grandma"? :)
