This chic little scarf features a bold orange yarn tamed by the sweet cream colour that makes up most of the body of the scarf. It seemed apt to name this little piece Peaches and Cream Scarf, and I think the name fits this sweet piece perfectly. Using Bamboo Pop (a fav of mine as some of you might know) this funky piece turned out exactly as I envisioned, lightweight and fun. Perfect to layer with a t-shirt and jeans on a cool spring day. Or to wear to the movies during the summer to keep off the chill of the AC 😉
This pattern features a more open weave shell stitch, and even though it might look intimidating, it is really not hard. You just need to get a hang of the stitch count and then it takes off from there. That’s what I love about crochet, you can create a lot of fancy pieces very easily with a little know how, yarn and a hook. The pattern will guide you through the stitch and any experienced beginner will find this fun and easy.
Peaches and Cream Scarf Pattern
Materials (US terms)
One ball each of Bamboo Pop in Tangerine and Cream
4.00mm (G size hook)
NOTES: You will begin with the Cream yarn and follow pattern for eight rows and then change to the Tangerine yarn which you work with for two rows until changing back. Each cream section is therefore eight rows long and each Tangerine section is two rows long. You should end with Cream as well.
Row 1: Beginning with the Cream yarn: In sixth ch from hook, dc2 ch 3, dc2 all in the same stitch. *Sk 5 chs, and in next st dc2, ch 3, dc2 in same st. Repeat from * until four chs remain. Dc in last ch. Ch 3 and turn.
Row 2: dc2, c 3, dc2 in ea of the 3 ch sps. Dc in the top of the turning ch.
Repeat row 2 until scarf meets desired length. Fasten off and weave in ends. Viola! You have a lovely new accessory.
In the upcoming months, I want to share more patterns and projects with you and I am brainstorming a little something as well to spice things up for the summer months. It could take the shape of a series, or it might have another format. Stay tuned!
