yes, the scarf with the strings is ready!
while making the strings, it seemed at times that my fingers fell off, so no similar things in the nearby future:(
another problem is that i can’t get nice and clear photos of the scarf… well look at the pictures, not good, don’t you think? the weather is gray and therefore the colors look a bit drab. this is what i have done to get better ones:
i took pictures of the scarf…
wearing a black shirt
a blue (teal colored) sweater
on a hanger
on the table
on my good old lampshade (like a wig, don’t you think?)
i have also tried to take a picture with the scarf on a hanger hanging at the window, but then a little pigeon in the garden got almost a heart attack, poor bird.
this time i did it a little differently than last time when i worked with thinner cotton yarn (see here). these strings are made of softfun, a blend of 60% cotton and 40% acrylic in two shades, 1 ball of each, and hook size 4 mm. after closing the strings to a ring i have them – through the parts where i have sewn – strung together and secured the whole firmly with a knot. then i sewed a crocheted elongated piece over it and that is the part you wear in your neck.
finally i sewed a larger crocheted elongated piece over the strings so that it functions such as a men’s necktie. that part you can slide as high or as low as you want.
what do you think of it?

if you like to make similar strings you can find the link to the tutorials by vashti braha for chainless foundations but unfortunately, there are problems with her website and her tutorials are not accessible.
another tutorial can be found on the website of doris chan via this link

the elongated pieces of my scarf are all slip stitches.
