Great Grape Scarf: Free Pattern

Great Grape Scarf

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.

Granite Stitch

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.

Tassels

To Make Tassels

  1. Wrap yarn around your hand ten times. More if you’d like a thicker tassel.
  2. With a  piece of yarn, wrap around the top of tassel tightly. Knot it tightly.
  3. Cut through the bottom ends of tassel. Your ends will be uneven, that’s fine.
  4. Trim ends so they are even.
  5. Using a longer piece of yarn, attach tassels. I did this by knotting it on and then weaving in ends.

I hope you like the Great Grape Scarf as much as I do! What do you like to make with purple yarn? Share in the comments section 🙂
