Crochet Stitch Patterns: Wool Bam Boo Scarf

Pattern #1:

Wool Bam Boo Scarf by Judith L. Swartz

In this scarf pattern two natural fibers (both highly renewable resources as well) meet to share their respective properties and create a yarn that is soft, strong, lustrous and a joy to work with. This yarn lends itself beautifully to crochet as the smooth texture is a perfect format for any type of pattern stitch. The pattern is easy to learn and the elongated stitches show the yarn off to its best advantage.

Even the more complex stitches found in this pattern are simply built upon the basics, all of which you will learn about in this handy guide.


Crochet Stitch Patterns: Quick Cuffs

Pattern #2:

Quick Cuffs by Toni Rexroat

When Toni first touched this yarn she couldn't wait to begin designing a simple pattern. These cuffs can be completed in just a few hours but will add years of elegance to your wardrobe. The 100% wool yarn means these cuffs keep you warm on cold days, and the variegation in the coloring allows them to be worn with multiple outfits.
