In Progress: Popcorn Scarf

Hello readers! Sorry I've been MIA for the last few days! I have A LOT of photos I want to show you all... just not all today, hehe. Austin and I went to an international auto show on Saturday, and eventually I'll have some pictures up! Today Austin and I went to a local county park and had a picnic.... again, eventually I'll have some pictures. This weekend our college has a home football game; Austin's parents are driving down to come with us (: I plan to take pictures.

Now on to the subject of this post (according to the title)..... my scarf. I originally was looking for bath mat pattern, but ended up just learning a new stitch with the help of my lovely EtsyFriends! I learned the popcorn stitch(crochet)! I'd rather call it a bubble stitch, but when I made a little swatch to try out the stitch, popcorn seemed to fit since I was using yellow yarn (:

The first picture below is the swatch and the second picture is how far I've come along on my scarf. (Sorry for terrible quality... these were just snapped quickly!)

I am worried I won't have enough yarn to make a full length scarf, so this may just end up a scarflette (:

Let me know what ya think folks!?!?!

Very pretty and unique....I love learning something new...and a scarflette is a great idea if you don't have enough yarn :)

Looks great. I like the stitch and the fact that it is so compact. It'll make a great scarf, but would be great for little lap blankies or baby blankies too, if you wanted to venture down that path...

your scarf is looking so good!!

Looking good, Mandie! It looks like it will be very cozy indeed!

Mannie, that is looking great. I can't wait to see it when it is done. It looks about as far along as Aprils scarf. lol

Hey if you make it a scarflette as you say, why not crochet a button in a complimentary color and make it a cowl. That would be cool.
