Pattern Mixed Scarf...your thoughts please

Pattern mixing is a big trend right now, stripes and florals, polka dots and plaid, leopard and stripes. I am a bit on the fence when it comes to pattern mixing.  I think that it can be done well, but that it can also be a bit overwhelming if done incorrectly.  What are your thoughts?  

I was sewing through some of my chiffon, trying to get a head start on all of the craft fair craziness that is bound to be even crazier this year with the addition of another baby.  I had a few short pieces of material and decided to combine them for a mixed pattern scarf.  

I love the polka dots, but am not quite sold on the houndstooth/polka dot combo.

  As I've been piecing these together, I've thought that it could be fun to offer a few different combinations for the mixed pattern lovers out there. Do you have a favorite mixed pattern combo?

I can't do the mixing of patterns. It just doesn't work in my mind. That said, those are adorable. And loads of people will love them!

I really like the polka dot mix one, but not so into the hounds tooth/polka dot mix... maybe hounds tooth with a solid? But the first one is super cute!
