By day, I'm a mild-mannered museum worker, laboring for truth, justice, and item-level location tracking. By night, I'm an obsessive crocheter who falls asleep thinking about charts and colorways and stripe patterns.
When I first started crocheting, I spent a lot of time buying into the myths about what crochet could and couldn't do (and worse, about what I couldn't and couldn't do). Several uninspired scarves and a disastrous ripple afghan later, I decided that was a boring attitude to take, and I'd have a lot more fun (and produce better work) if I just made what I wanted to make and figured it out as I went along. Several years down the road, I now love crochet more than ever, and I'm so excited to be along for the ride as it goes in new and interesting directions.
My rock band will be called the Yarn-Bombing Hooligans. I don't expect that I will survive the zombie apocalypse.
This v-shaped scarf, crocheted with bold granny stripes and a striking color combination, melds the fashion-forward edge of a triangle scarf or kerchief with the ease of wear of a traditional scarf. I often find that if a kerchief is big enough to wrap securely around my neck, it's too bulky, but I love the way they look. The long "arms" on this scarf, reaching out from a crisply pointed center, solve that problem neatly. A double crochet border all the way around neatens up the edges.
The simple stitch pattern and worsted weight yarn make this a quick project suitable for beginners, while the unusual shape and opportunity for wild color combinations make this a fun and interesting stitch. Using a large hook relative to the yarn ensures great drape and maximizes the "squish" factor from the granny stitches. This pattern will work with any fiberchoose a cotton blend for warmer climates and year-round wear, or go for 100% wool and stay extra cozy.
You're welcome to sell what you make from this pattern, though I would appreciate credit as the pattern designer. You may NOT sell, copy, or otherwise redistribute the pattern itself, in either electronic or hard-copy form.
