Have you heard of the phrase, “Christmas in July”? Normally it refers to stores attempting to drum up business in the slower months, offering big sales under the guise of preparing your Christmas gifts early. Here at Straight Hooked, it apparently means a whole lot of crochet fun, because today I am delighted to bring you yet another Forever Free crochet pattern- the second so far this month, with another one yet to come!
I designed the Peppermint Stripe Scarf last fall but just discovered that I somehow forgot to ever share the pattern (probably because I was in the middle of migrating my site to my new platform.) To make up for my oversight, I decided that today would be the perfect time to share it with you AND make it forever free- because today is my featured day in the Christmas in July Make Along with Underground Crafter!
If you are brand new to this event, I encourage you to join in the fun by checking the main post each day this month. Every week is a different theme and each day features a different designer. There are crochet, knitting and sewing projects and the best part? Each one is forever free!
I designed the Peppermint Stripe Scarf using Brava Worsted from WeCrochet/KnitPicks. I absolutely love the Brava Worsted line and have used it in many of my designs. You can snag some for your next project by using my affiliate link. It won’t cost you any extra, but I might make a small commission 🙂
I used my Furls Streamline crochet hook for the first time and loved the way it felt in my hand and glided through the yarn. If you’ve been eyeballing those gorgeous Furls hooks and want to snag one, you can use my affiliate link and perhaps I will receive a small commission!
This scarf was a lot of fun to design, and it can be made in any color combination!
