Olivia Scarf Crochet Pattern

Can a girl ever have too many scarves?  This scarf design was inspired by last minute Christmas gift giving.  Christmas was approaching and I was desperate to crochet something for my grandma and mother-in-law.  It had to be a fast project too.  I was browsing the yarn aisles at Michaels and decided I’d buy the yarn based on how it felt and then I would wrack my brain on a design.  I fell in love with Loops & Threads Country Loom yarn.  It was so soft and I loved the colors.

I brought it home and realized it might be a bit tricky to crochet with because it’s dark, marbled, and sort of kinky.  What did I get myself into?  After testing different stitches and hook sizes, which felt like it took forever, I decided on a granite stitch with a larger hook. I wanted it to be fluffy, soft, and easy to drape.  I think it turned out amazing and I was able to make it in a jiffy with only one skein of yarn.  I thought I would share the pattern with you in case you’d like to make one too.  I made this one in Weathered Rock, but another amazing color choice is Shale.

I just love how it drapes around my neck.

Can you believe I worked this up in a matter of hours?

Here’s the pattern!
