Scottie Scarf & Fingerless Mitts to Crochet


My Scottie Scarf is a fun scarf to crochet that ends in a frill. Wrap it around your neck to create a tiered ruffle. This scarf is worked lengthwise in a simple two row repeat that is very easy to remember.

I used 230 yards of acrylic sport weight yarn in a pink and brown colorway using a size G (4 mm) crochet hook for a scarf that measures 34" long  4" wide and 18" wide at the ruffle.

You can make it short like mine or add more stitches to make it as long as you like. Or make a narrower version to wear as a small decorate tie over a blouse or top. Wouldn't this look fun made in a sparkly yarn?

Included in the pattern is a matching pair of mitts using the same techniques. You'll need 150 yards of more of sport weight yarn for a pair of these. I used Yarn Bee Baby Bee Sweet Delight yarn to make mine. The mitts are constructed lengthwise from wrist ruffle to the fingertip edge and seamed with slip stitch along one side. The easy version has a hole for the thumb and the more challenging version features a thumb gusset.

The five page pattern features written instructions and crochet charts for both projects.


The pattern is yours for $4.00 through my Ravelry pattern store.

Spring Showers Shawl to Crochet

Announcing the debut of my Spring Showers Shawl. This enchanting wing shaped crocheted shawl features and easy cascading lace repeat that evolves into a beautiful lace border. It is constructed from the top down. The border is worked around 2 sides of the shawl.
Make it in laceweight or fingering weight using a size F crochet hook. This shawl must be blocked to open the lace.


You’ll need about 700 yards of lace or fingering weight yarn and a size F (3.75 mm) crochet hook. I used 2 balls of Brown Sheep Nature Spun fingering yarn in Butterfly Blue for the this shawl. Blocked size of the pictured shawl is 52” along the neckline x 35” long at the deepest point.


The 5 page pattern includes written instructions and 2 crochet symbol charts -- one for the body and another for the border.  The pattern is yours for a $4.00 from my Ravelry pattern store.
