granny square blue scarf

Here is the reversed granny square scarf. Three round grannies with a three round edging. You do have to vary your shells around the joins. Three double crochets is too much in that area. Each round is a little different in how you approach it.

Finished size is 6" x 56".

I used an H hook and made 11 squares as in the previous scarf. Then I joined them using the continuous join.

That is #15 and all the scarves are in plastic bags ready for transport, hopefully tomorrow.

Now I am going to change gears and make that second Doctor Who scarf I wanted to try.  I'm going to use Chris Brimelow's pattern this time, with the same Vanna's Choice yarn colors I used in the previous one. (Chris gives different suggestions on his site)

As always I'll keep you posted. I think when I return to the Special Olympic scarves I will be trying the other yarn suggestion Red Heart Super Saver – 387 Soft Navy, Red Heart Super Saver – 319 Cherry Red. These yarns are more readily available locally which is a plus.

For the previous scarves I used Red Heart Soft – 4604 Navy, Red Heart Soft – 9925 Really Red. These were okay but I got a number of thick sections and more than I like of tied together bits. Of course that can happen with any yarn and I may have the same problems with the RHSS. Just fyi, if you're trying to decide which to use, the RH Soft is similar to the Simply Soft yarns IMHO. It has a sheen to it and is a tad thinner than the Super Saver.

Now I'm off to watch a bit more Lily Chin.

Happy crocheting!

  1. Great work. I'm thinking that I'll be using the soft color options myself. I haven't tried them yet but they appeal to me.
