FINISHED PROJECT: Crochet Chevron Scarf
I made a long yummy scarf! All I wanted all winter long was a long long scarf that I could wrap around twice and still have hang way past my waist. Well, I did it, and it is May. So.. whatever. Do you love it?
I used this free crochet chevron pattern by the famous Lucy of Attic24 - the ripple pattern is for an afghan, but I modified it to be for a scarf! I didn't even do a full W of the chevron as she shows in her example - just a V! I didn't want it to be too thick, otherwise it would not be comfortable to wear double-wrapped around my neck.
I used all Red Heart Super Saver yarn for this guy in Aran, Turquoise, aaand a dark grey, lost the wrap, whoops! Plus an I-hook. It really only took me two, maybe three decent sittings. The worst was having to weave in each end..
Here is before I added the fringe - I am glad I did! It took maybe six or seven minutes, and it added another good chunk of length to either side. I also like it because the starting end of the scarf was a V shape, while the last stripe ended with a ^ shape -- the fringe equaled that out!
