So if you are looking for the perfect crochet scarf, whip up one of these beauties. Here is Yumiko to tell you more about her designs.
While organizing my fabric stash, I found myself creating piles with larger pieces at the bottom and smaller pieces on top. That is how I came up with this design. This three-tier scarf is joined together as you go, so there are no seams to sew at the end. If you want to experiment, try combining different fibers, textures, colors, and weights of yarn to create your own unique versions of this fun pattern.
Several years ago I joined a group that was making a crocheted coral reef to raise awareness about our overuse of plastic and its effect on ocean life. While working on it, I learned about a simple method of continuously increasing two to three stitches in each stitch to make an interesting shape. I liked this technique so much I kept a sample, thinking I could use it for tying and decorating gift packages. Ultimately it became my inspiration for this scarf.
This one-skein design is a quick project using chunky-weight yarn with a large hook.
Water Lily is made with many flower motifs; each one is connected to the last stitch of the previous motif. To wear this neck warmer, pass the cord through the center of the motifs. The curvy shape of the motifs makes a pretty decoration around the neckline.
This design combines chain lace, straight lines, and a fan lace pattern. The curvy line gives the fabric a good balance and shows both stitch patterns well. Using the same pattern but with different lengths creates a nice design flow.
