My name is Anastacia, and I am the scrap yarn/one skein queen. I buy my yarn mainly at yard sales/thrift stores, so I got used to making do with what I could find. So most of my patterns are designed to use up the odd skeins or leftovers in your life, and are geared towards beginner crocheters or those who just want a fast, easy, but still pretty item.
I'm a 30 something adult living in MA. Iâ€™m married, have a wonderful cat named Wedgie, & I work full time. I also teach knitting & crocheting at my local Michael's & squeeze in designing as many hours as I can a week.
I do love to hear from everyone, but please remember that I am busy, just like you, & will reply as soon as I can.
All of my patterns use USA terms & abbreviations.
I try to layout my patterns as simply as possible to save money for people printing at home. My patterns are as short as possible, usually with only one photo on the first page, which you can easily skip printing to save ink.
This is a scarf to knit away on a chilly winter afternoon, cuddled up with a good cup of coffee by your side and even better movie on your TV!
Young Afternoons Scarf is an easy, pretty lace scarf, worked with a garter stitch edging and an easy to memorize pattern, using yarn overs and slipped stitches.
I used Lida Tweed Flame Boutonne, a long discontinued 100% wool thick and thin yarn (mostly worsted weight), that resembled handspun yarn. Any worsted weight or thick and thin yarn can be used. If you'd like a thinner scarf, feel free to substitute a dk or sport weight yarn instead and knit at a slightly tighter gauge.
Approximately 150 grams were used for my sample, which measured 12" by 61" after blocking.
Scarf is written for two sizes, approximately 12" or 18" wide, after blocking.
Many thanks to my testers, FalconDance, tinkershell , honeystalks and valcrafts!
