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!
P (11.5 mm hook)
Q (15 mm) hook
1 skein Loops & Threads Country Loom yarn in Weathered Rock (104 yds)
tapestry needle to weave in ends
sc = single crochet
ch = chain
sk = skip
st(s) = stitch(es)
