cro floral necklace 0614

My friend, Sweet Sheri, sent me a link to this pattern, calling it a summer scarf rather than the ‘Floral Necklace’ that Red Heart identifies it as on their free pattern site.

It’s not something I would wear for a number of reasons – mainly that I have no neck.  Age and nature have deprived me of what little length of neck I once had.  This brought to mind my question for you.  Would you wear this?  If so, when – on what occasion or with what garment(s)?

While I find it attractive, I think it’s entirely impractical.  Maybe I’m being a curmudgeon.  What do you say??  Please post a Yea of Nay in the Comments section below.  If a Yea – how and when would you see yourself (or someone else you’d make it for) wear it?

    Nay. Looks like something made to go with a costume.

    Yea , why not? I find it very chic an would wear it as a “summer scarf” on a warm summer evening. Perhaps not in pink, but in blue or green.

    No, not my style. BUT with a bit of tweaking… I think just one of those big rounders. They were correct to have an odd number according to art lessons. So which one? The one at the top? or one on the hanging bits?

    Sorry, too much of everything. It’s obviously something designed as a reach.

    I made it, in those colours, and posted the final article on Ravelry. It’s basically what I wear instead of a scarf.

    Good to know. Thanks, Michelle.

    I think it’s cute! I’d probably do it up in a navy or red and then pair it with a white t-shirt and blue jeans with some cute espradilles.

    I plan to make it for my granddaughters. They are 6 and 4 years old.

    I would. And I am NOT a scarf wearer. How Do I explain under a collar, not tied, Have color put into it… It is Pretty!

    My daughter said that it looked like a Cat Lure… B

    Nay! Too cluttered.

  12. G J Amber on June 21, 2014 4:59 am

    Nay. It is lovely but I would not be comfortable wearing it.

  13. Patricia Steeves on June 21, 2014 5:29 am

    I guess I am a curmudgen too, because uh uh no way I would wear that.

  14. Merry Chapman on June 21, 2014 6:27 am

    It is waaaaay to busy for me, so I showed my daughters who are 29,35 and 38 and they all said the same, way tooo much for them, but my daughter with a 5 year old said maybe she would wear it for a fun accessory.

  15. Bonnie Jean on June 21, 2014 8:05 am

    Um, No. I do not like to be the center of attention and I feel that this necklace, that is almost gaudy, would stick out like a sore thumb on me. I am not 100% sure that the model shown is happy about wearing it either. :)

  16. Tabitha Mori on June 21, 2014 8:26 am

    It isn’t something I would wear.
    I do wear scarves but in the
    summer they tend to be of the fabric

  17. Carolyn Geoffrey on June 21, 2014 8:28 am

    No, I would never wear a scarf such as this. To me, it looks like an overdone curtain tie back..LOL

  18. Christena on June 21, 2014 10:48 am

    No, too busy for me. It looks like it would just be in the way every time I moved. I think there are too many shapes/objects going on there. The ends do look like they would make a nice cat toy.

  19. Toni on June 22, 2014 9:13 am

    Love it. I can also see my two granddaughters wearing the scarf/necklace.

  20. Jo on June 22, 2014 10:22 am

  21. Susan on June 22, 2014 1:44 pm

  24. Tina on June 22, 2014 2:59 pm

    I would not wear this. It is not my type of style

  25. Mary on June 22, 2014 5:28 pm

    it’s a bit busy for me asa ncklace, possibly as a scarf

  26. Jacqueline Steffen on June 22, 2014 9:41 pm

    Nay… Overdone. Impractical. Strangler….
    However, elements of it could be used on their own..

  27. germaine on June 23, 2014 6:16 pm

    definitely, I would wear it! not just on special occasions tho. Every day is a special day!

  28. Ann on June 26, 2014 4:39 pm

    No way in this world would I wear this thing. It’s hideous.

  29. Cathrin on July 7, 2014 2:54 pm
