Jenny June Scarf

from zagraham
(4) Name: 'Crocheting : Jenny June Scarf
Jenny June Scarf Handsome scarf

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Double crochet through back loop
  • Bobble or popcorn stitches

Pattern Description:

Recently, I was virtually thumbing through a pdf of a 19th century pattern book and I came upon a counterpane (bedspread) motif that really grabbed me. The original directions, however, called for starting each row with a new length of yarn.

The horror! Think of all the yarn ends from all the individual motifs that would have to be dealt with afterwards! Definitely not for me.

Instead, I have adapted Miss Jenny June Croly's original into an easy-wearing rectangular scarf pattern. Use a yarn with slowly-changing colors to get a result that reads as both modern and classic, or use skeins of several different yarns to plan your own unique color gradation.

There will still be yarn ends to contend with, but you can choose to use them as part of a fringe along the edges of your scarf!

Until the end of 2013, $1.00 from each sale of this pattern will be donated to Antique Pattern Library (, a fabulous resource for craft publications in the public domain.
