The Peppermint Stripe Scarf is here, and even better- it will be forever free on the Straight Hooked Blog! I designed this pattern using Brava Worsted yarn and my Furls Streamline hook.
The texture of the stitches creates little bumps inside the triangles which reminded me of moguls on ski slopes! Once you get the stitch combination committed to your memory, this scarf works up super fast as well. I designed the Moguls Scarf using Lion Brand Ferris Wheel yarn in the Imaginary Garden colorway. I love crocheting with the Ferris Wheel line of yarns because the yarn is made specifically for crocheting and the colorways are all SO gorgeous!
I went on a huge designing-scarves-using-Ferris-Wheel kick this fall, and each of them will be available as Forever Free patterns here at Straight Hooked. The Wild Violets Scarf is fun to make and creates a gorgeous texture everyone will rave about!
When I saw the new Lion Brand Mandala Sequins yarn winking at me, I just couldn't help myself. As I was working up the Storybook Scarf design, the combinations of the bright colors, sequins and the texture reminded me of a book my daughter had so many moons ago when she a tiny tot. Does the scarf remind you of a specific book from the early 2000s? (I asked my daughter when she came to visit a couple weeks ago, and she did not think of it, so don't feel bad if it hasn't come to you yet!)
I made my Spiral Donut Cowl using one ball of Lion Brand Mandala Sparkle in the Aquarius colorway. I absolutely love the Mandala yarn, and you will find that I use it in many of my designs. The yarn is super easy to work with, and I have yet to find a colorway that I dislike! The Spiral Donut Cowl is constructed from post stitches in the round, then joined together to create a donut shape.
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. 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.
The Deep Breaths Scarf is the sister pattern to the Deep Breaths Beanie, which I designed for the 2022 Crochet Cancer Challenge.
