The Saw That Dripped Blood...SCARF!



Ahhh, nothing like a bit of crocheted blood to get me in the holiday spirit! Direct from the Runway of the Wrongway, we have a very fashionable as well as functional example of Slasher Film Chic...



Oh yeah! The Saw That Dripped Blood...SCARF!

This was a quick crochet (at least until I got to the bloody portion of the program), made entirely from Cascade 220. The blood? Yeah, that took some time to accomplish as it is one continuous line of surface crochet. I rather like the results though.

Gruesome...

And quite fetching on my crafty cohort, Jenna!



Best part? Yep, pattern is available on my sidebar if you'd like to give it slice! I know, bad joke. Whatever. Anyway, if you do decide to make one, I suggest a few severed fingers as an accompaniment.

Happy, Happy Halloween!

Did you know I wait with bated breath for your Halloween goodies? Now, I'll try not to lose my head over this scarf, but no promises. It's full of awesome.

I saw you over on craftster and thought that looks like Lady Linoleum-- and it was! Very cool.

Surface crochet can be so gruesome!

Starfish said...

Brilliant! Where do you come up with these things!

Tracie said...

The things you come up with never cease to amaze me. My daughter would probably get a kick out of one of those for Halloween.

Robin said...

Awesome!! I know a few men who would LOVE it!

Kate said...

Oh wow--do you think this is an easy enough pattern for a beginning crochet-er (though confident knitter)? I don't know if I could knock it out in time for Halloween, but that's ok--we love the macabre year round!

SheCrochets said...

Love it! I was wondering if we were going to get some Halloween goodies from you!

Nichole D. said...

So, so, so awesome! I love your creativity, especially when it ventures (as it so often does) to the darker side of life. Yaay for crocheted blood!

What Not To Crochet http://whatnottocrochet.wordpress.com/ just posted your scarf as something NOT to crochet.

They have no taste...no taste at all.

plus, since the new person took over that blog, she edits any comments that dont support the fugliness... I've posted several comments that basically say I dont see anything wrong or fugly about something, and they just never show up in the blog comments.

Carol said...

You are the most clever girl!

Twitchy Knitter said...

So awesome! Almost makes me want to convert to crochet!

JamieL said...

Oh my God, that is awesome! Very creative, and very cool. Nice job of surface crocheting the blood!

Rebecca said...

Fanbloodytastic. I love it. Also, Megalion, it's a scarf to wear when NOT watching movies that aren't in the horror genre. I'd wear it while watching a Doris Day movie. In fact, I think it would make a Doris Day movie more enjoyable.
