    Default Pattern for crochet muffler?

    I have some gorgeous sirdar chunky yarn and have crocheted myself a beret. Now I want to do a muffler to match - basically just a short scarf joined at the ends that pulls over the head and sits on the neck. I've seen knitted versions, but not a crocheted one. Can anyone tell me how best to start it off - ie whether it is best to crochet it in a round or lengthways. Thanks!

    Personally, I'd do it in vertical rows, working into the back loops, thereby creating a kind of rib effect. You could join the ends to make a pull-on or fasten it with big chunky buttons.

    Be sure to post a picture when you're done

    Yeah, I think I would work it in rows in one rectangular piece & use some buttons (or how about a crochet flower?) to fasten it. I think it would look fantastic. Can you recommend a particular beret pattern? I would really like to make one for myself (if I ever get the chance...).

    I saw this one on craft juice and thought how beautiful is this. It looks knitted though. http://ny-image1.etsy.com/il_430xN.43063561.jpg

    Thanks for the replies!
    This is the beret pattern I used: http://charmedknits.blogspot.com/200...het-beret.html

    I've joined the waiting list for Revelry! Only 6,600 in the queue ahead of me!

    While browsing I found this muffler pattern, so am giving it a try:

    Love the idea of the twist in the scarf! Will let you know how I get on (it's growing very quickly!) At least with crochet it is easy to undo and start again if you don't like the end result

    That is lovely isn't it? It is knitted, although something similar could be done in crochet - I'd need a bit more practice (and patience) first!

    Now that is really gorgeous crochet!

    Well I finished my muffler - ran out of wool, so did a fancy edge in some toning mohair, then did the same around the edge of the beret!

    It's way from the neatest crochet i've seen, but at least it's usable, and it's most definitely unique!

    Excuse the dodgy, out of focus self portrait - wanted to show what it looks like on (so you can tell me if I look like a clown or not!) It looks better on the pot dog though
