IMPORTANT NOTE

Hello, and welcome.
I would like to inform you that I AM MOVING.
...well, sort of. I have started a new blog, Oui Crochet, that focuses just on crochet, crochet patterns, and crochet resources. I am in the process of building it up as a one stop shop for all things crochet, and I am very excited about it. I hope you will come over and check out my progress. :)
I will be moving my patterns from this site, to my new site. My idea is to leave this site active, so that you can still access other aspects of this site. I will also leave a modified "introduction" post where each pattern is on this site, as to keep all links active and make it so that you can easily locate the pattern's new home. As an added bonus, you will also find new printable/downloadable versions of my patterns.
I apologize for any inconvenience, but I assure you, this change is a positive one. I look forward to seeing you at Oui Crochet.
Happy Crocheting!

Granny Stripes Scarf {free crochet pattern}

I told you all last week that I am going to be crocheting some warm weather items to donate to those affected by Hurricane Sandy. If you would like to join along, you can read the details HERE.

I thought I would share with you the pattern of one of the scarves I am making to donate. I wanted something simple and fairly quick to work up, so I decided to go with Granny Stripes. I've worked with Granny Stripes before when making my daughter's Color Burst Blanket, and thought it would make a warm, pretty scarf.
 I decide to work the scarf lengthwise, leaving longer ends as I switched colors. The ends will blend in nicely with a fringe added at the end. No worrying about weaving in all of those loose ends!


Granny Stripes Scarf
What You Need:
Size K crochet hook
2 (or more) colors of worsted weight yarn. I used Red Heart Super Saver in Hot Red (color A) and Blue Suede (color B).

What You Do:
*Note*:
**You will alternate colors for each row. When changing colors, leave a long end to be blended in with the fringe.
With Color A, ch 177.
Row 1: Dc in 4th ch from hook, [skip 2 ch, work 3 dc in next ch] across, work 2 dc in the last ch. Turn.
Switch to Color B.
Row 2: Ch 3, 3 dc in first space (between the clusters of the previous row). Work 3 dc in each space across, 1 dc in the top stitch of the ch 3 of the previous row. Turn
Switch to Color A.
Row 3: Sl st to first space, ch 3, dc in same space, work 3 dc in each space across, work 2 dc in the last space. Turn.
Rows 4-11: Repeat rows 2 and 3, alternating each.
Finish off.

Cut equal sized pieces of both colors of yarn, approximately 10 inches long. Working with one strand of each color,  pull a loop through the end of the scarf, then pull the ends of the fringe through the loop. Repeat as desired. I made 22 fringes on each end.
Trim fringe so that it is even.
I found THIS VIDEO on Youtube helpful for instructions.

  5. Hi Susie.. I am featuring two of your scarves as Feature of the Day today. They would make great homemade gifts for Christmas.
