Here in the U.S. the Thanksgiving holiday week is upon on! This means family, traveling, shopping, and winter weather starting to creep in to much of the country!
A few days ago we got our first snowfall. I got a pretty hilarious video of my daughter falling down in the snow, too :)
With the Thanksgiving and approaching "holiday rush" upon us-sometimes you just need a simple, one-skein project that you can pick up and put down as needed. If that's what you are looking for you will love the Snow Drops Skinny Scarf! One stitch, one skein AND a video tutorial to get you started :)
This scarf is made with the star stitch with makes a beautiful-snowflake like texture. Combine that with the icy colors of Caron Cakes "Faerie Cake" yarn and pom pom snowball "fringe" and this scarf screams "ready for winter!"
- ch: chain
- sl st: slip stitch
- SC: single crochet
- HDC: half-double crochet
- LOH: loops on hook
Star stitch: WATCH THE VIDEO TUTORIAL HERE
First start stitch of a row: Ch 2, Insert hook into back loop of the second ch from the hook and pull up a loop (2 LOH), insert hook into front loop of the same ch stitch and pull up a loop (3 LOH), insert into the next 3 sts and pull up a loop through each one (6 LOH). YO and pull through all 6 loops, ch 1 to make the "eye" of the star.
Star stitch: Insert hook into the "eye" of the previous star and pull up a loop (2 LOH), insert hook into the last post of the previous star and pull up a loop (3 LOH), insert your hook into the last stitch of the previous star and pull up a loop (4 LOH), insert hook into the next 2 sts and pull up a loop in each one (6 LOH). YO and pull through all 6 loops, ch 1 to make the "eye of the star.
7 feet long, 5" wide
Chain stitches at the beginning of rows do not count as a stitch
You can easily adjust the width/length of this pattern. To adjust the width, your starting chain should be a multiple of 2. To adjust length, add or subtract rows (but always end with a SC row)
Row 1: starting in second ch from the hook, SC across (21) turn
Row 2: crochet your first star stitch, and continue to star stitch across (10 stars). HDC in last stitch and turn
Row 3: Ch 1, 2 SC in each "eye" of a star stitch plus one sc in the last stitch of the row (21) turn
Repeat rows 2 and 3 until you reach your desired length. Use your pom pom maker to make 10 pom poms for "fringe" at the end of your scarf. Classic fringe or tassels would look great too :)
And done! Once you get the hang of the star stitch this pattern is a breeze!
