I am usually so busy making made-to-order items for my Etsy shop, that I don’t have a lot of time to design new items- which is my favorite thing to do! So, during the busy sales/shopping season, I can get kind of bogged down from making the same item over and over…and…over…again.
Lion Brand’s Thick & Quick Yarn to the rescue! I whipped these babies up in no time, and have a cute new item to list in the Etsy shop today! YAY!
I bought this yarn in Hudson Bay colors for fun and originally had no idea what I wanted to do with it, but I thought gloves or a hat would be the quickest cozy project I could make. If I have time, I’ll have to make a matching hat 😉
This Chevron scarf is my current made-to-order item nearing its shipping deadline 🙂 Such a simple crochet pattern, mixed up with random color changes, makes for a pretty effect! I love that it has a Southwest feel to the pattern and it reminds me of Arizona, where I used to live 😉 So I named it the Arizona scarf, of course. You name your designs, too, right?!
Here’s what to do if you’d like to create your own:
With worsted weight yarn and a G Hook, Ch 40.
Row 1: 1sc in 2nd ch from hook, 1sc in next 6 chs, 3sc in next ch, 1sc in next 7 chs, sk next ch, 1sc in next 7 chs, 3sc in next ch, 1sc in next 7 chs, sk next ch, 1sc in next 7 chs.
ch1, then turn COUNTER-CLOCK-WISE for a better edge (you usually turn clock-wise).
Row 2: sc 2 in 1st st. 1 sc in next 5 sts, sk 2 sts, 1 sc in next 7 sts, 3sc in next st, 1sc in next 7 sts, sk 2 sts, 1 sc in next 7 sts, 3sc in next st, 1sc in next 6 sts , sk 1 st, 1sc in last st.
ch1, then turn counter-clock-wise.
Row 3: 1sc in 1st sc, sk 1 st, 1sc in next 6 sts, 3sc in next st, 1 sc in next 7 sts, sk 2 sts, 1 sc in next 7 sts, 3sc in next st, 1sc in next 7 sts, sk 2 sts, sc 5, sc2 in last stitch.
alternate rows 2 & 3. Fasten off, weave in ends.
I simply crocheted over my yarn tails (like in tapestry crochet), so there were no ends to be woven in except the tails from starting and finishing the scarf!
Sew ends together carefully to make an infinity scarf 🙂
