I’ve been a flurry of posts this week, trying to catch up after a long absence on here (over a month?) It’s been a crazy quarter, with trying to work on requests (one I’ve been working on for FAR too long), craft fairs, wedding stuff, a pulled hand muscle (check out this article I wrote on taking care of yourself because I didn’t take my own advice) and the passing of a relative. But just because I haven’t been updating on here doesn’t mean that I haven’t been working on projects. Check out my instagram for the current works in progress!
Today I have for you a new pattern for this super luscious scarf that I whipped up in a short amount of time–perfect for all of the last-minute projects you might want to crank out for Christmas, which is less than 2 days away!
I, personally, am not ready. You know how you get things ahead of time and then pat yourself on the back, slow down and lose the momentum you had to finish up present buying/making? Yeah, that’s where I’m at on my Christmas shopping. Whoops. But we’ve all been there…
But here’s a scarf to help you out, and it’s from this delightful yarn I found over at Michael’s a few weeks back called Braid Big from Loops and Threads! I worked up a whopping 3 different projects from one ball o
f this magic yarn and if there’s one thing I love, it’s getting mileage from good yardage in my yarn. Yarnage? (We’ll work on it.) But it has 262 yards of super bulky yarn so when you work with large hooks, these projects pretty much complete themselves. Easy peasy. Also, the self-ombre effect in the yarn makes for a lot of versatility in the colorway, which is perfection for a lazy person like myself who detests color changes! Heeeeey
So in this post I’ll share this scarf pattern, called the Sienna Scarf.
One ball of Braid Big! from Loops and Threads
(I used the colorway Tan)
P hook (11.5mm)
Piece of cardboard measuring about 6 inches, or however long you want your fringe
Terms Used (US):
sc = single crochet
DC = double crochet
ch = chain
With P hook, chain 12
Row 1: DC in 3rd chain from hook, sc next stitch, [DC, sc,]*, repeat * to end of row. Ch 2 and turn.
Row 2: DC in sc from previous row, sc next stitch, [DC, sc]*, repeat from * to end of row. Ch 2 and turn.
Repeat Row 2 until the piece measures your desired length. In my case, I eyeballed it by working until the piece measured where each end touched a hip when worn around my neck.
Grab your piece of cardboard. I used a mailer I’d received from Barnes and Noble because I thought that would make a good length for fringe. You can find inspiration anywhere! Wrap 24 times around your piece of cardboard and cut at one side. You’re going to need 24 lengths of yarn. Take 3 strips at a time and place them evenly on each end of your scarf. Voila!
Doesn’t that look dreamy? Look at all of that squish! I hope you enjoyed this latest post and hope to see you soon! Good luck with all of your holiday crafting, may the odds be ever in your favor!
