I have a wonderful scarf pattern to share with you today, and it’s one that uses both colour and easy stitches, so friends, this is one you can hook up quick. Beginners, get your hooks ready! Can you tell yarn makes me happy? I bet you can. The Big Camel Scarf uses the camel stitch, which creates a knit like effect, and is a look in crochet that I’m really in love with. I turn to this stitch time and again, but I do try to make my use of this stitch versatile as well. For this pattern, I used two skeins of yarn and created a two panel scarf with each of those skeins. It will look cute tucked under a tan jacket or dropped over a black top paired with jeans or causal slacks. Best of all, this pattern is FREE. You can find it in my Ravelry store, link below.
If you’ve been following the blog for a while, you might have noticed that I tend to use both acrylic yarn and yarn made from lovely wools or cotton. I enjoy the versatility of fibres and brands available and I do try and mind my pocket book as well. So this scarf was designed with yarn you can purchase at your local Micheals. And it’s really surprised me! It’s tonal, it’s a good amount of yardage and it’s really nice to work with. It just slides along your hook so smoothly. And looks and feels lovely. For a basic yarn, it’s very impressive. I even went out and bought more.
Big Camel Scarf Pattern
Gauge is not very important in for this project.
7” by 27.5”
5.00mm (G) hook
486 yards worsted yarn
Loops&Threads Meandering Serpentine, one skein in Sunshine, one skein in Aqua Ice
This scarf was fun and easy to make and I have two more skeins in both colours, so I can make a hat or even mittens to match. You might see that pattern if I do end up tackling that idea! It’s starting to feel like fall in my neck of the woods, and pieces like these make me glad fall is coming even if summer is ending. Cozy fall pieces are my favourite to create and wear and I looking forward to a fall of design! This piece is one I hope you make and wear again and again.
