Yesterday morning Cody and I got up and decided to go for a little drive and grab some local food. Here is how my first morning of spring went!
Here in Kentucky, the past couple of weeks has brought in some beautiful weather. The sun has been out, the breezes have been warm, and by the time school lets out, it is perfect for a nice walk. Flowers are blooming everywhere you look and the mountains are so beautiful that sometimes it takes my breath away. It has been true Spring weather here.
Kentucky is famous for several things: horse racing, UK Wildcats (if you’re an Indy fan then don’t speak to me), and bourbon. What outsiders may not realize is that Kentucky weather comes with a saying: “If you don’t like Kentucky weather, wait five minutes.”
I’m not sure what is going on with Mother Nature is Kentucky, but she just can’t seem to make up her mind. One moment it is nice and warm, but the next moment is bitter cold. So today in the honor of the first day of Spring, Kentucky decided to be a little chillier than usual with a high of 60 degrees. Thus I pulled out one last cold weather project before the weather caught up to its season.
This stitch is used often to create a ribbed appearance and is easy to do. All you have to know is how to do a half double crochet. The neat thing about this scarf is that it works up fairly quickly if you use super bulky yarn. You can make this scarf as big or small as you want, however I was wanting to achieve a loose, lazy look, I made my scarf fairly long. Since it is made in a continuous round, after all of the chains there isn’t any counting to it.
Any super bulky yarn will do but I love Lion’s Brand Wool-Ease Thick & Quick. For this project I just used two skeins of the color “Marble” that I bought at Micheals.
Size 10mm crochet hook
Chain 145. This is where you can add or subtract chains to make your scarf however small or large you would like it.
Slip stitch into the first chain to create an infinity scarf. Make sure your chains aren’t twisted!
Row 1: Half double crochet in all the chains. (145)
Rows 2-9 Half double crochet in the third loop of every stitch. Below I have my finger through the third loop.
This creates the ribbed look of the scarf.
I think it’s beautiful!
I hope that if you are still finishing up the winter season wherever you are that you may get to try this pattern out! I know that I will be wearing it every chance I get!
