Free Knit Scarf and Crochet Cowl Pattern
December 8, 2015
Christmas is going to be here before we know it. Are you ready? Do you have all your shopping done and all your handmade gifts completed? I wish I could say that I do but I don’t – I am not even close. I have been so busy designing new patterns for my shops that I have not taken the time to shop at all.
I have a couple of designs to share today on my blog that are both pretty quick and easy to knit or crochet – so if you are still looking for something to complete for someone for a gift maybe one of these patterns will work. They are both Free pdf download files.
The above photo is of a Chunky Knit Drop Stitch Scarf. It is super quick and easy to knit on size US 15 knitting needles. If you can do a knit stitch and a yarn over and drop a yarn over you can complete this pattern. Any chunky weight yarn will work. The yarn I used was from Hobby Lobby – not sure if it is still available – it is called Yarn Bee Finale. It goes from thick to thin and is a variegated yarn. Drop Stitch Knit Scarf You can click on the highlighted name of the pattern to access the pdf pattern and print.
The other pattern I am sharing today is for a crocheted ripple cowl – I call it Candy Cane Ripple since it is done in red and white sparkle yarn. You can choose any two colors you want with or without the sparkle, glitter, yarn. This cowl is crocheted with a size US J hook. It is a one row repeat so pretty simple to do once you master the pattern. The cowl is crocheted in rows and then sewn together. You need to know how to double crochet and chain and skip chains to crochet this. Yarn I used was Hobby Lobby I Love this Yarn in the sparkle – any #4 worsted weight yarn can be used.

I hope you enjoy the patterns and are able to get some handmade gifts completed for those on your list.

Knitting Scarves with Ruffle Yarn
January 16, 2014
Ruffle yarns have been around a while now. I know I have knit a lot of scarves with them in the last two or three years. I knit so many I kind of got tired of making them. Although they are an easy thing to work on especially during my knitting meeting night once a month.
Recently I designed a new scarf that has the ruffle yarn just on the edge and the rest of the scarf is knit with a worsted or sport weight yarn. The one below I made for a gift for a family member that is an MSU fan.
The idea of making a knit scarf design came to me when a lady requested a pattern for one. I have had a pattern design for a crochet version for a while but not a knit version. The crochet scarf is in the photo below – in blue. My mom has this scarf and says whenever she wears it people stop her and ask her about it.
Any type of ruffle yarns can be used for the edging on these scarves. The white one above is a Boutique Sashay yarn and the blue one is Paton’s Pirouette yarn.
The other version I recently knit for a friend is done in team colors. Another great way to show your team spirit with a pretty ruffle scarf. This one is done in Texas Tech colors since her daughter is going there.
I am calling these scarves Spiral Knit Scarf with Ruffle Yarn Edge. They are really fun and easy to knit if you have basic knitting skills and are familiar with working with the ruffle yarns.
I have also been working on a lot of other new knitting patterns and crochet patterns. Please subscribe to my blog via bloglovin, email or RSS feed to receive updates on my latest patterns.
Have a great day!
