“A Spot of Color” Scarf

I made a big pile of Scarf. This is essentially Mark 2 of the crochet experiment that ended up only being long enough to fit my cat. Which is fitting, considering my favorite lace knit scarf from Macro Sun was recently “claimed” by said feline friend when I was out of the apartment (a handmade gift from Mama was apparently not enough). And every hippie girl needs at least one colorful, light scarf that can be worn year round.

Size J hook
Caron Simply Soft evergreen medium weight yarn
Stained Glass medium weight yarn
Lion Brand heather grey yarn (this skein was so old, it had Lion’s old white and blue label and a printed price tag that said 79 cents)
Sewing Scissors
Yarn needle
Paper clip

I used a re-purposed paper clip to chain stitch 252 stitches (twice what I did last time) and more or less free-handed from there. The pattern I ended up creating is as follows:

– three rows single crochet in evergreen
– one row single crochet in stained glass
– one row double crochet (every stitch) in stained glass
– two rows single crochet in stained glass
– one row double crochet (every other stitch) in heather grey
– one row double crochet (every stitch) in heather grey

Bind off, weave in loose ends. This scarf ended up being about 61″ long. Perfect for double-looping.

Perfect! And just in time for autumn!
