Pattern of the Week: Atoll Scarf
As an editor, one of my favorite parts of releasing an issue is seeing how people make the crochet patterns we release their own by using different color schemes. The Atoll Scarf from Interweave Crochet Spring 2019 is one of the projects I couldn’t wait to see in a range of colors, and it is our pattern for the week!
When designer Alla Koval submitted this lovely scarf, she proposed it in a bright coral color. We changed it to the stunning midnight blue from Ancient Arts Fibre Crafts for the issue, but the color potential for this lovely scarf is endless! The scarf is beautiful in coral or blue, but you can also try it in shades of purple, variations of green, or even in a yarn with a color gradient!
The scarf also has an interesting construction method. The entire scarf is worked as a long tube made up of continuous rounds of crochet stitches. The special mesh stitch and shell/picot stitches are all charted out in the pattern, so visual learners will have plenty to reference. The scarf is worked in two pieces from foundation chain outward to make sure each end has a symmetrical drape and edging.
