Scarf Up Warmth

Nov 12, 2009

In today's CrochetMe More enewsletter, I allow as how I don't have a crocheted scarf to call my own. I'm working on fixing that.

Look:

This scarf began life as a swatch for a project in Interweave Crochet's forthcoming winter issue (Wait 'til you see the whole project!). It's worked in superlight but warm Tahki Dove.

Light, easy yarn + fun pattern + size I hook (with lots of air in each stitch) = I'll be wearing this puppy soon!

Have a favorite scarf pattern? Do share.

All good stitches,

Marcy

Marcy, in today's email you showed a picture of a beautiful girly, lacy scarf. Is the pattern available? I just LOVE it and I know someone I'd love to make it for because I'm sure she would love it too.

Thanks!

Hi Marianne,
I don't have that exact pattern, but it is very similar to the Sweet Lorraine Lace Throw from Interweave Crochet Fall 08, which Kim Werker adapted into a scarf by doing two repeats of the pattern. If you don't have the magazine, the pattern is in the Interweave online store. You could make the edging swirlier like the one I show by doing this along the edge: Rnd 1: *sc in ch 2 sp, ch 5, rep from * around, working 3 (sc, ch 5) in each corner. Rnd 2: in each ch-5 sp, (sc, ch 3, sc, ch 3, sc). More stitches=more swirl! The bamboo blend yarn (this one has been discontinued), makes it drapier, too.
Hope that helps! I'd love to see it when you're done!

Hi Marcy, I laughed out loud about your scarf shopping in Colorado! I found a BEAUTIFUL scarf in a discount store a couple of years ago and even though I too make things with yarn, I bought that scarf! Beautiful mint green alpaca in a pattern I've never seen anywhere! I am SO allergic to wools but not alpaca :). When people asked me THE Question, I told them I had rescued it from going to someone who would not appreciate its beauty! Wish I could send you a photo of it!
