The Great Grape scarf is absolutely great because it’s grape! That’s a tongue twister, I know but what drew me to this project was the yarn. And what drew me to this every day acrylic yarn was its colour. I love all shades of purple and this one screamed at me to create. Naturally, I bought two skeins; one I used to make a scarf for myself a while back, and the leftover one I recently picked up from the yarnstash and got busy crocheting. The project was nearly done when I ran out and needed more, but that’s a story for another day.
I had no idea what stitch to use for this Great Grape scarf, and I decided to try out the granite stitch. It’s such got such a nice stitch definition after all! At first, I wasn’t sure the colour and stitch meshed, but after a few rows I saw that they suited each other beautifully. And the Great Grape scarf was created! If you can’t tell, I’m super excited about this project. I just love the way it turned out. And it being quick and easy just adds to how fabulous this was to make.
I added on tassels to jazz up the project a bit, and I have to say I like the effect. It’s causal yet chic and I think this would look awesome with jeans and a white tee.
Great Grape Scarf
2 skeins of Loops and Threads Impecciable yarn in Grape. You find this at your local Micahels.
Craft needle and scissors.
Row 1: In the second ch from hook, sc. *Sk next st, ch 1, sc in next st, repeat from * across. Ch 1, turn.
Row 2: Sc in first st. *Sk next st, ch 1, sc in next st, repeat across. Repeat row 2 until desired length. Fasten off, weave in ends.
Attach tassels in the center (stitch 12 from end) of each end of the scarf.
To Make Tassels
- Wrap yarn around your hand ten times. More if you’d like a thicker tassel.
- With a piece of yarn, wrap around the top of tassel tightly. Knot it tightly.
- Cut through the bottom ends of tassel. Your ends will be uneven, that’s fine.
- Trim ends so they are even.
- Using a longer piece of yarn, attach tassels. I did this by knotting it on and then weaving in ends.
