I'm participating in the Pink Scarf Project until next October....if you would like to join this wonderful effort, click on the badge on my sidebar.
I've made these 3 scarves so far. I didn't use patterns, just made them up as I went along, using the amount of yarn I had as a guide. The first two were made with partial skeins I had in my stash.
This first one is a simple cowl made out of a bulky chenille yarn. The roses are made from some old pj bottoms I had. It can be folded in half and used as a headband too....and yes, I tried it on and it is SO CUTE!
This one is a button cowl of a soft wool blend, I had a sweet faux antique button I used to compliment the soft color. This one will be super warm.
This last scarf I had Dean pick up the yarn for (good job, right?) I love the triple picot edge. It looks like a ruffle and is ultra feminine. This one is Kaela's favorite and she is insisting I make her one "just like it."
I plan on making them all year long and then shipping them off next September. Again, if you want to join me, click on the badge to the right and it will take you to Vicki's blog post explaining the project.
*I've had a lot of interest in a pattern for this last scarf. I did not write it down as I went but here is how I made it. This pattern has NOT been tested so please be aware of that.
(I used Caron yarn for it but don't remember what hook size. Probably H or I.)
Row 1:chain an even amount of stitches, turn. (I chained about 6 feet worth)
Row 2: half double crochet in second chain and in every chain to the end. Chain 1, turn
Rows 3-6: half double crochet in every stitch to the end. (You can make yours wider by making more rows.)
Do NOT finish off, just begin ruffle edging.
*Ruffle edging. Each stitch has two loops. A front loop and a back loop. The ruffle is made in these loops.
*Row 7: working in front loop ONLY, work 5 chain picot stitches Here is a link to picot stitch all the way around the entire scarf.
*Row 8: working in back loop ONLY, work 7 chain picot stitches all the way around the entire scarf.
