Vintage Crochet

I'm trying to use up the scraps of yarn that I have, these 2 were heavy on the wool as they used 2 strands at a time. The scarf is from Lion Brand but I just made a neck wrap from the pattern, using a button at the back to secure in place.   The original pattern looks great, but to be honest I wouldn't know how to wear it!  I didn't have anywhere near enough yarn to do it either.

The Cloche is using DK yarn I bulked it up by using 2 strands again for that super chunky look, I did have to mod the pattern because of this.  It has an uneven brim so is lower on the flower side and I stitched it in place so I wouldn't have to faff about with it every time it is put on
