Everyone loves an easy pattern, and the Granite Pocket Scarf is just that. Easy. It’s the perfect afternoon project to hook up in a jiffy for a last minute gift. Or simply because the cold weather snuck up on you and you need a new scarf right away! The Granite Pocket Scarf uses just two skeins and bit of yarn and a big 12.00mm hook. It also only uses two stitches so it’s beginner friendly and the perfect project to work on while you watch The Haunting of Hill House.
Scarfs are my favourite accessory to design and this one was needed to be easy and cozy. I added on a pocket because women need more pockets in their lives. Pockets that are handy to slip a lip balm in or to keep a package of tissue for those days you’re out in the crisp, cool air. No one likes chapped lips or a runny nose, and having a pocket on your scarf makes things accessible. Plus, the pocket gives this scarf its own unique style and I totally love that.
Now, for the pocket I used whatever chunky yarn I had on hand. I’m not sure it’s Lionbrand or Loops and Threads, but it’s a cream colour so it ought be easy to find at your local Michaels. And a bit of advice, sew on the pocket straight. I actually sewed mine on slightly crooked and now I have to undo it and re-sew. So don’t be like me, pay attention! Maybe hit pause on your viewing of The Haunting of Hill House. 😉 And if you do like a more balanced look, make two pockets and have one on either end of your scarf.
