The winter weather has come and gone here in Knoxville. Since I was stuck at home for the majority of the past five days, I spent a LOT of time watching Netflix and playing with yarn. Inspired by the vast amounts of snow, I decided it was about time I made myself a new scarf. I couldn't leave my house to purchase any new yarn, so I dug some (that I forgot I had) out of the closet and got to work!
If you've read this blog for any amount of time, you probably already know that I have a serious granny square addiction. I love experimenting with them and using them in unexpected ways! This scarf certainly doesn't look like your typical granny square and I love it that way! Plus, it makes me feel a bit like Claire Fraser when I wear it! (For the Outlander fans out there!)
- sport weight yarn in main color (4 to 5 skeins, depending on how big you want the scarf)
- small amount of sport weight yarn in contrasting color
- size H hook (I like this one.)
- yarn needle
- The yarn I used was purchased secondhand, so I don't know exactly what it is. All I know is that it is a sport weight, wool yarn.
- The scarf is worked in one large triangular piece. Continue the rows until it is long enough to fit around your neck.
- Contrast stripe is worked when you think you have around five rows left.
- Make magic loop.
- Row One: Ch 3, 3dc, ch 2, 4 dc in magic loop. Ch 3, turn.
- Row Two: Work 3 dc between 1st and 2nd dc from previous row. (3dc, ch 2, 3 dc) in ch 2 gap from previous row. Work 4 dc between 3rd and 4th dc from previous row. Ch 3, turn.
- Row Three: Work 3 dc between 1st and 2nd dc from previous row. 3dc in next space between shells. (3dc, ch 2, 3 dc) in ch 2 gap from previous row. 3dc in next space between shells. Work 4 dc between 3rd and 4th dc from previous row. Ch 3, turn.
- Continue pattern working 3 dc is space between shells and (3dc, ch 2, 3 dc) at each point. Work until piece is long enough to fit around your neck.
- Bind off and weave in ends.
