ONE SKEIN SUPER SCARF
ONE SKEIN SUPER SCARF
I was gifted this lovely Red Heart Super Saver Worsted weight yarn recently and thought that this would make just the perfect gift (back) for the wonderful lady who has gifted me this yarn.
If you have been following my blogs, you will know that this lovely lady recently celebrated her 87th birthday and I’d gifted her a pullover for that. She then visited her daughter in USA and thought of me and bought me this yarn. Now, isn’t she just the sweetest loveliest lady in the whole wide world!
Mumbai with the monsoons presently, has become a little chilly and it’s also going to get a little cooler with our “winter” that will follow. Winters in Mumbai do not match up with the word ‘winter’ really, but for a lovely old lady like this one, it can be pretty cold – so methinks this will be a super pretty gift for her – and more so as it is a color of her choice.
I am super excited starting on this project, so thanks for joining me on this journey as well.
I had a pretty hard time finding just the right pattern for this – I do have just one skein of this lovely yarn, and have now decided on free pattern at http://www.allfreecrochet.com/Crochet-Wrap-Patterns/One-Skein-Wrap.
Here's the photograph that inspired me.. just in case this one has been on your "to-do" list as well...
Materials used : Today I’ve used a one skein of Red Heart Super Saver (4) Worsted weight acrylic with a 4.5 mm crochet hook
For Indians : This yarn is thicker than our Indian Vardhaman Millennium acrylic yarn, so I’d say to get this thickness, you can work one skein of Vardhaman Millennium and one of our Cashmilon 4-ply acrylics held together. That said, I think this pattern will look superb in just Vardhaman Millennium and a 4.5 mm crochet hook.
Difficulty level : Easy to Intermediate Skill level.
Stitches used :
fsc : Foundation Single Crochet : To refresh your skill on the fsc, please view this superb video by Tamara Kelly at the link http://www.mooglyblog.com/foundation-single-crochet-fsc/
Chainless dc start : Instead of the usual dc row start with ch 2 or ch 3, I’d like to introduce this lovely new way of starting a dc row. Do take a look at this self explanatory video at http://www.mooglyblog.com/chainless-starting-double-crochet/ In case you are unhappy with this start, do continue with the usual ch 2 or ch 3 start. However, all instructions are given assuming that you’re using this chainless dc start.
Abbreviations used :
fsc : Foundation single crochet ch : Chain
dc : Double crochet sp(s) : Space(s)
st(s) : Stitch(es) hk : Hook
lp : Loop(s) yo : Yarn Over
sk : Skip sc : Single crochet
trc : Treble / Triple crochet
I’ve started with a fsc chain and used the multiples given rather than the start chain length. I’ve then worked the rest of the pattern the way written.

I love art and craft - and am grateful for this hobby that keeps me busy and out of 'mischief'.
