Kaela requested another lattice scarf, this time in red...
Before Christmas, I bought some Tobaggan yarn by Classic Elite. It was on deep sale but you had to buy it prepacked. I knew that I wanted to make a color block scarf when I bought the yarn. I didn't want to do the same old half double crochet so hit pinterest.
I found this pattern by Fiber Flux.....
Here are the 2 changes I did:
I used a J hook to adjust for the larger yarn.
I also reduced the turning chain from 5 to 3 as the chains are quite large in this bulky yarn.
So you couldn't see the seam, I *reserved enough yarn of the first color so that when I whipped it together, I whipped it on the same color instead of whipping two colors together. I then continued working the scarf and changed colors, etc. At the end, my last color "change" was back to the first color. I worked the two rows and then whipped it together.
(*To do this, I worked two rows, pulled them out, cut the yarn and set it aside.)
I will use this pattern again, it is pretty and works up incredibly fast.
The scarf is lovely and is going to be a gift for someone this Christmas. (unless I snag it for myself????)
