After spending 15 years in the fashion industry as a pattern maker and technical designer, in 2008, I decided to leave the corporate world behind to pursue more creative opportunities. I have gotten to hone my couture dressmaking skills by making quite a few wedding dresses. Discovered that I can write, by having a few published magazine articles and was able to do all the technical writing, illustrating and pattern making for two books(GirlÃ¢â¬â¢s World and Happy Home, both by Jennifer Paganelli. Check them out). I was also very fortunate to be able to work in a local yarn and fabric store, which showed me what a varied and inviting community the craft world can be. My next adventure is to expand on my independently published line of pattern for knitting, crochet and sewing.View all patterns by designer (6) »
The Pinked Edge Scarf has one edge that zig-zags, it reminds me of fabric that has been cut by pinking shears. This stunning asymmetrical scarf is a chinch to make and suitable for beginners. It is crocheted on the bias for a nice drape and really shows off self striping yarns with long repeats. An adaptable pattern that can be made in a variety of yarn weights, not just the two pictured, have fun and experiment a bit.
Gauge AFTER blocking.
Fingering weight scarf - 13 stitches/19 rows in 4" of stitch pattern.
Worsted weight scarf - 12 stitches/15 rows in 4" of stitch pattern.
Gauge isn't too important for this project. You will want to use a hook size that is 4 to 6 sizes larger than what is suggested for the yarn you are using.
