Wintery Mix Scarf
Looking for a quick project that uses up some of your yarn stash? Then this easy crochet scarf may be just what you are looking for.
We all have one color that we seem to gravitate towards (or two, or three!) and before long they start to take over valuable storage space for newly coveted skeins. They are too small for a project, yet too big to part with (I hear some people actually part with their yarn - IMAGINE!) In my case I love creamy white. And, if there is a softness factor to it I just swoon.
As I was gathering yarn for a new project the other day, I realized just how much I had. I also noticed I had quite a few partial balls left, so I decided to make up a quick project with them.
Several "left overs" of your favorite yarn. Mix and match colors, weights, etc. to suit your taste.
Width - 6.5 inches
Length - 66 inches
Adjust this to fit your needs.
R01: Chain as many stitches as you need to obtain the width you want, plus one. HDC in second chain and across. Chain 1, Turn.
R01:. HDC across, Chain 1, Turn.
R02- R??: Repeat R01 as many times as you want to obtain the desired length. As you go, switch up the yarn. In my case I usually tried to change my yarn every 5, 7 or 9 rows, but I was not strict about it. Fasten off.
Fringe: Cut several pieces of fringe about 6 inches long. Attach two pieces of of the fringe to the scarf on the desired row. I attached mine about every 5-6 rows, and on the ends.
