If you are having weather like we are right now, I’m sure you can appreciate a nice scarf. This one is great because it was easy to work up, and I was able to use some chunky, inexpensive yarn. But instead of buying 4 or 5 skeins of 6 weight yarn at $3 or $4 a skein, I was able to make it using two skeins of the Red Heart With Love worsted weight yarn at $3.50 a piece. That was it. This skein only cost me $7 to make, and a few hours. Can it get any better than that? I think not!
I found this scarf pattern when I was making Christmas presents. The design is so simple that i have made quite a few since! It is basically a base stitch, then going back in with DC, chain, skip a space, and repeat. Seriously, easy peasy. It is a great, chunky scarf, which is very ‘in’ right now. They work up really quickly, I am able to finish one of these in an evening. I love projects like that. Talk about instant gratification!!!
Yes, that is me, and yes, I am awkward. I have since started asking my sister to model things for me….she’s much better at it. 🙂
You can customize the scarf to be however long you’d like it, mine came out to be about 80″ every time. Basically I would crochet it until I could wrap it around my neck twice, comfortably. This also used up almost the entire skeins.
They are extremely warm and make great gifts! I plan to make more using different colors, but these have been my most popular so far. I posted them on my facebook page and had a few orders come in — there was one for a grey/black mix that looked SO COOL. That might be my favorite look so far!!
I will be back soon with another variation of this scarf. We have a storm moving in, so I’m going to go settle in with my crochet and a little embroidery project (what?!). Happy weekend!!
I have a few posted in my Etsy shop as well, if you would like to order one, go HERE.
