Choose from three different colorways, each with seven different shades, to express yourself with and let your crochet scarf be the window to your mood.

Tried this craft? What did you think?

At first I thought this was a smaller version of the Tom Baker Dr. Who scarf. Ive not heard of a mood scarf, but I did run across a similar project recently. Instead of your mood, you recorded the daily temperature using a row of color coded yarn. I appreciate the principal, but I wouldnt have the patience for something like that. I like getting things done!

It's a cool idea, I have to say that. As I've said many times before, I am a color girl- so a project that looks like this is right up my alley. I know they say to utilize the scarf by showing the color that matches what mood you are in, like a mood ring! It's a really neat idea, but I struggle to understand how I can do this, if every color possible is offered, colorblocked, throughout. How could I only show one color? Doesn't matter to me -) I love this scarf and would wear the heck out of it. Thanks for offering it!

Love the different colored stripes on this afghan. Not sure how this scarf got the name of mood scarf, but it is certainly interesting. A mood ring would automatically show what it perceived to be your mood from the temperature of your hand / finger that was wearing the ring. Not sure how this scarf is going to tell me my mood LOL

This scarf is so fun! I love the mix of bold colors and the unique idea behind it.
