This scarf was inspired by the Molas quilting technique used by the Kuna people of the San Blas Islands off the coast of Panama. For my Molas scarf, I chose similar colors but used only geometric shapes, creating and piecing each shape together as I went. The shapes are worked primarily in single crochet often in the back loops only. I then edged the entire scarf with a single color to pull the whole thing together.
This scarf sprang from a scrumble bag that I had assembled to make a mermaid freeform crochet flat doll. I only got the tail done before I reverted to scarf making again. Ah well, gotta feed the muse. She likes to eat yarn. :-)

This freeform crochet scarf incorporates a bit of knitting (upper left of photo). I like to add bits and pieces of other people's abandoned projects that I find at thrift stores.
This scarf is based on a pattern that I call "Baja Scarf," because I made the first one while visiting the Baja region of Mexico. It incorporates a lot of bright desert colors reminiscent of desert flowers.
The body of the scarf is constructed in one piece from one end to the other of crocheted blocks of color worked in different stitches. Next, I crocheted the flowers and sewed them on at strategic locations. After that, I added the ruffles worked along the edges of the color changes in the blocks. Finally, I made the fringes a la Prudence Mapstone style.
