I know it’s not the season for chunky yarn, but this lovely chunky lavender scarf just had to be made. I mean, the yarn is to die for. Purchased at my local Michaels, this is an acrylic and alpaca blend that was heavenly to work with. Soft, pretty and oh, this lavender shade. It was instant love. I had to buy three skeins and just get to work.
The pattern for this is really easy and is beginner friendly. I used two simple stitches, a half double crochet and a double crochet. No counting necessary if that makes you breathe a little easier. The beauty of this piece is really in the assembly–which is equally easy, I promise. Some twists and sewing turned this oversized scarf into a lovely infinity scarf. I made this in one night, so it was done in a handful or less of hours. I never track how long a piece takes me though maybe I should. Is there an app for that??
Chunky Lavender Scarf
3 skeins of Loops and Thread Lush Alpaca in Lavender
Row 1: Hdc in second ch from hook and in ea st till end of row. Ch 2, turn.
Row 2: Dc in first st, and in ea st till end of row. Ch 2, turn.
Repeat row 1 and 2 for pattern till you have 8 rows. You should end on a row of half double crochets. Fasten off, and weave in ends.
Lay your scarf flat and begin adding in loose twists leaving the ends fairly flat. Whip stitch together, weave in ends. Viola! You now have a lovely and chunky lavender scarf.
As I said, I know July is not the season for chunky scarves, but fall will be here much sooner than we’d like and I am personally excited to have a new piece to add to my collection. Plus, this is so quick to make it won’t take much time away from other projects you may be working on. What are you working on this July? Let me know in the comments section.
