Sour Grapes

Introduction

Sour Grapes ScarfI have poker straight hair, so I’ve always wanted curly ringlets that I can twirl around my fingers absentmindedly as I chatter away. Unfortunately, curly hair looks about as natural on me as a goatee. So I decided to make the next best thing, a curly scarf. And that’s how this scarf was born. The sentiment behind it’s conception, it’s grape vine-like curl, and the two-tone berry colour all led to it’s name: Sour Grapes.

Materials List

  • Main Colour (MC): Jaeger Siena (153 yds/140m per 50g), Blush, 1 ball
  • Contrast Colour (CC): Bouton D’or Mango (120 yds/110m per 50g), Prune, 1 ball
  • 3.25mm (size D/3) crochet hook

Notes

When changing color you do not need to fasten off at each color change. Simply drop the last color and pick up and pull through the next color.

The Pattern

Begin

1st curl: Using MC, ch 35. Sc into third ch from hook. Sc all the way back to end of ch.

2nd curl: Join CC, ch 35. Sc into third ch from hook. Sc all the way back to end of ch.

*3rd curl: Pull MC through loop on hook, ch 35. Sc into third ch from hook. Sc all the way back to end of ch.

4th curl: Pull CC through loop on hook, ch 35. Sc into third ch from hook. Sc all the way back to end of ch.*

Rep from * to * until you’ve got the length you want. To curl, just use your finger to twist the strip into a tight ringlet. When you let go the strip will hold the curl. Curl the strips as you go, or you can save them up and have one big curl fest when you’re all done. Weave in the ends and you’re good to go.
