Pattern Description:

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.

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 ...
