Dogwood Scarf Crochet-along
A stunning melding of freeform crochet and Irish crochet motifs, the Dogwood Scarf captured my imagination immediately. Maybe it was because the colors of the delicate blossoms and leaves reminded me of spring as the snow fell outside; or maybe it was a fascination with the freeform techniques used to combine the motifs into a fairytale scarf. The reason isn't really important; in the end, I just had to have this scarf.
Now I want to invite you to join me for the crochet journey. I will post blogs to help you with the construction of the scarf. It's amazing how the motifs come together to create this gorgeous scarf. And join us over on Ravelry more fun, discussions, and an opportunity to get to know each other better.
You can order the Dogwood Scarf Kit and you'll receive a physical copy of Interweave Crochet spring 2015 and the same yarn used in the sample. Take my word for it, this Madelinetosh Tosh Vintage is a gorgeous yarn. Or you can order a digital or physical copy of Interweave Crochet spring 2015 and use your choice of yarn. I can't wait to see what you create!
Here is additional information on the scarf and the schedule for the crochet-along. We won't start until the beginning of next month to give plenty of time for those who are ordering kits.
