Earning-My-Cape Weekly Crochet Square


I would like to thank everyone who has visited and those who continue to visit my blog. I want to let you all know that I am going to have to take a hiatus from my blog to focus on my family. I guess that's all part of chasing after that cape, right?
I plan to leave the posts and patterns that I have up, and I hope to continue to post an occasional pattern or recipe or homeschooling idea whenever I get the chance.

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:
**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.
