I have a new pattern for sale! This is the crocheted scarf that I taught at the Pittsburgh Knit and Crochet Festival. I also have an upcoming class in the pattern at Natural Stitches on April 14th from 11:30am to 1:30pm.
I designed this scarf pattern to demonstrate how easy it is to make something with repeating motifs, and how straightforward it is to crochet them together as you go. As you finish each motif, you use part of the last round to crochet it to the previous motifs. And the whole scarf is made up of repeating squares and triangles – easy to work up on the go.
I also wanted to write a pattern to take advantage of all of the amazing hand dyed and kettle-dyed sock yarns on the market. This pattern is a great way to use that special skein of yarn in a project that you can show off whenever there is a chill in the air or an overbearing air-conditioner blowing on your neck. The lace pattern is simple enough that it should work well with a multi-colored yarn as well as a tonal.
The scarf is made using basic crochet stitches to form a lace pattern in a motif. Chain, single crochet, double crochet, cluster stitches, slipped stitches and adjustable rings are used.
A diamond motif should be approximately 3.5” square after blocking and 3” square before blocking. Gauge is not critical to the pattern as long as motifs are coming out at a fairly consistent size.
9” x 60”, measured at the widest point and from tip to tip.
U.S. Size G, 7 or H – size needed to produce noted gauge
Any sock or fingering weight yarn in a wool or wool-blend.
Pattern uses standard CYCA Abbreviations and Symbols. Motif directions are provided in written and charted form. Directions for connecting motifs are described in words and shown in multiple crochet diagrams. Pattern can easily be lengthened if the crocheter has more yarn by making additional motifs and crocheting them together.
