Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

This is a very simple pattern but I did make one slight change. Since the designer gives the exact number of stitches at the end of the first row (26), I worked the same amount of stitches using Foundation Double Crochet instead. I worked mine using a J hook (6.0) because I wanted a more open worked look. I found the perfect button as JoAnns has a Steampunk line of buttons now.

There is no way I would crochet this based on the picture. Have no idea what it looks like.

Absolutely agreed. The photo is abhorrent and doesn't do anything positive to showcase what looks like a very cute and original scarf!

Sorry, but I totally agree. Most of your pictures are terrible. It is impossible to get an idea of what the item really looks like. Please take better pics. I would probably make some of them, but.... And I have been crocheting and knitting for over 60 years. Thanks

What a horrible picture! Why would I even TRY to crochet something that just looks like a black blob?

The visual of this project is creepy and very poor. You can't see much of the item let alone any of the stitches. Is that a huge button or a choker medallion? Sorry, not a fan.

The way this is presented it is difficult to see the stitches or even the finished project, all you see are the crazy doll eyes!

This is a lovely execution, very cool but it seems more art deco or more a forties design than victorian or renaissance. Love the button.
