I crocheted this scarf with vertical stripes in eight different colors for my niece in Ohio. I found the pattern on Ravelry.com but here is a link directly to the pattern creator’s blog. I followed her directions except I started with 240 chains instead of 181 and didn’t do the braided fringe.
I’m not a person who has a lot of scrap yarn around but, for people who do, this is an extra great project for using up those small leftover amounts of various yarns. It has twelve stripes but I only used eight colors because I had plenty of each. The colors are: grey, purple, gold, baby blue, olive green, white, black, and rust orange. I used an I/5.5 mm hook and worsted weight yarn. The brands used are Vanna’s Choice, Loops & Threads Impeccable, Lion Brand Wool-Ease, and a few from my (meager) stash that I’m unsure of (the baby blue is probably Red Heart).
Here’s a photo of the fringe. I just did one strand and cut everything to the same length. I tried the braiding but it looked stiff and weird.
Finally, here is a blurry mirror selfie so you can see what it looks like on a real person. We just got this mirror from Ikea last weekend and hung it in our dining room so that I can put makeup on in Sookie’s company (makeup not included in this photo). I crocheted that hat too!
