Eva's scarf

I had picked up this gorgeous chenille yarn in royal blue because it reminded me of Eva, her birthstone being the sapphire. Almost six years later, after trying to turn it into a decent scarf a few times by knitting and not liking how they turned out, I decided to give it one last try - but with crochet. The yarn had long since been discontinued and i had lost the label, so there was no way i could have found another skein. I thought this interesting pattern would be perfect because unlike other ruffly neckwarmers that is done lengthwise, I could adjust this pattern by changing the number of the motifs so that I don't have to worry about running out of yarn. Turns out I only had enough for a dozen pieces of coral linked together, but it's still long enough to wrap around the neck.
