It’s that time of year! Crochets and knitters begin planning their holiday gifts and realize that they should have started making things since May (I can’t be the only one this happens to, right?)

Today’s pattern is for all of my intermediate to advanced crocheters our there who want a simple, but still elegant-looking scarf pattern. Once you fall into the rhythm of the crocheting, you’ll find this scarf works up fairly quickly and without having to count stitches every single row (because who actually likes to do that??)

Let’s talk about materials!

I used Cotton to the Core, a cotton/acrylic blend yarn from Knit Pal.

This yarn is available on Amazon, and comes in a set of 6 skeins. I used all 6 skeins for this pattern. You can find the yarn specs below:

50 g /142 yds
70% cotton
22% acrylic

Yarn: lightweight #3 (DK) yarn

Tunisian Hook: 5 mm

Regular Hook: 5mm

Additional materials: measuring tape, yarn needle, scissors. 

Sizing: This pattern makes 1 adult scarf that measures approximately 5.5 x 68” (14 x 173 cm)

Crochet addict, bibliophile, and cooking enthusiast. If I'm not sleeping, I'm probably making something while reading (because why do one thing at a time, when you can do two?)

Drawing, painting, and coloring are some of my favorite things to do, so I own a ridiculous amount of art supplies & coloring books. I also enjoy making soap, and even owned a soap shop in Albuquerque for a few years.

Other than that, I've owned a few businesses and have moved cross-country a few times. I play the flute and piccolo, and love to study languages in my free time. I'm fluent in English, Spanish and French, and I speak a little German, Italian, Mandarin, Japanese, Russian, and Korean. I'm a writer, though you wouldn't know it by the quality of my bio, but I write fiction and fantasy stories. My first novel will be completed soon, and I have a second one in the works.

Someday, I will travel the world with the person I love. We will see and experience all the magic the world has to offer together, and it will be amazing.
