wavy scarf

Yesterday I was piddlin' around trying to decide what my next scarf would be. I looked through a few books and finally I thought to myself, you know I have never worked an entire scarf in triple crochet. All that thinking to come up with something so simple. LOL So here it is the simple triple crochet scarf.

I used the Red Heart Soft Really Red for the center triple crochet piece. Then for the edging I decided to do something different that I've not done before. Have to keep those creative juices fed.

For the edging, I worked one round of sc as a base, then I did a wavy border using (sc, hdc, dc, tr cr, dc, hdc, sc). Around the corners I fudged where needed but it really worked out pretty well.

There are 16 triple crochets across and 66 rows, but I really didn't count the rows as I was working. I just measured to be sure it would be within the guidelines. The finished size is 6" x 57 1/2".

I will be making one more scarf for this organization and then I will be moving on. I'm sure you'll be happy to see the end of the red and blue! I know I will - especially the blue with all its woes - though I will still have some yarn left so I may yet make other things with it.

The skein I used last night had a few knots in it, but not so much as to make me irritated. I did rip out a couple times after cutting out a knot or otherwise problem piece when I ran into another problem nearby, but that was my choice to make for fewer tails to sew in rather than cutting two pieces and joining so close together.

Now to decide on the next one. :-)

In other news, here is a video from Red Heart yarns demonstrating how they make yarn. I really enjoyed seeing the process.

That's all for today.

Happy crocheting!

  1. You've done really great work with your contributions to this year's project. When I first started crocheting I made a scarf entirely out of each basic stitch and my triple crochet scarf is actually still one of my favorites.
