Greetings my friends!
This month has been so full of pattern releases, and there is another one coming next week but I just couldn’t help myself. I’ve been designing like crazy over here and I had to take a break just so I could share this new pattern with you.
I have been playing with my stash of Lion Brand Ferris Wheel yarn recently and have designed several new patterns with it. I love the Ferris Wheel yarn because the colorways are gorgeous and the yarn is made specifically for crocheters as it is spun in a “Z” twist. This means that instead of your yarn untwisting itself a little with each stitch like most yarns which are spun in an “S” twist, this yarn actually spins itself a little bit tighter with each stitch, which makes for gorgeous stitch definition.
Some of my other patterns I have designed using Ferris Wheel yarn are the Ferris Wheel Cowl, Wild Violets Scarf, Deep Breaths Beanie and the Deep Breaths Scarf. (I will try to remember to update this post as I publish the rest of my new designs using this amazing yarn as well!)
I absolutely love the soft transitions of blue shades in this Full Moon colorway. I made this scarf as a gift for a friend, but she doesn’t even know I made it for her and I am already coveting her new scarf!
I hope you will share photos with me of your Fabulous Fall Scarf. I can’t wait to see what colorway you choose!
The Fabulous Fall scarf uses mainly basic stitches, with a couple of easy to learn stitches thrown in. You may be unfamiliar with the stacked single crochet method, but it is super easy once you get the hang of it and the end result is so much neater than using a turning chain to begin a row. Check out my video tutorial below:
Note: to do the tstsc, you will just add a 3rd single crochet to your stsc as shown in the video. Super simple, right?
