two toned scarf

By November 18, 2018 March 24th, 2019 No Comments

I am loving the two toned effect of this scarf because the color combo possibilities are endless.  Go ahead and use of those single color balls of yarn that you have in your stash.  There are so many skeins of yarn in my stash that I just don’t have enough of in the same color to make a big project like a sweater.  So I’m always looking for those 1 skein projects that I can work up quickly and maybe give as gifts.

For this scarf I used a beautiful yarn called Chloe by Yarn bee which I bought at Hobby Lobby, on sale of course.  Get yours here. I love the soft yet durable quality of this yarn.  Blocking the scarf before seaming it up the middle is really going to give your piece a more professional look and a beautiful drape.

Ok, ready for a quick and lovely project? Here’s the free crochet pattern so lets get working!

 

Materials

1 ball Yarn bee Chloe in color – Oats  (3.5 oz/ 270 yards)

1 ball Yarn bee Chloe in color – Pine Forest .  (3.5 oz/270 yards)

5 mm crochet hook

Gauge

15 dc x 7 rows = 4 ”

gauge not crucial for this project

Abbreviations

beg- beginning
dc- double crochet
sk- skip
st (sts) – stitch (stitches)

Explanation

First, you will simply create 2 long triangles, 1 in each color of your choice.  Next, the triangles are blocked separately then seamed together forming the scarf.

General Notes

Ch 3 at beg of row counts as dc.

Each triangle of this shawl is worked by increasing by 1 dc in each row. Your increases will be on one side of the triangle only. Since this pattern is worked in rows and we will turn after each row, the increases will be worked alternatively between increasing at the start of the row and increasing at the end of the row.
