They are the trend right now.
They are a trend right now.
I have to say, I really like Caron Cakes.
20% wool, I find the yarn soft and lovely to work with.
Plus, color changes and no ends to weave in!
In Simply Crochet Issue #40, there was a scarf entitled Three Scoops.
A color block scarf made with simple SC and DC which gives the scarf a lovely texture.
I used this and Caron Cakes in Cherry Chip to make a super scarf.
The scarf measures in at 8.5 feet long!
It is soft and warm.
My only complaint are the light portions of yarn in the brown sections (you can see them in the picture above and below).
Found in both balls of yarn I used.
Not enough of a problem for me to not like the scarf.
The colors are fun!
I debated between fringe, 4 small pompoms or 2 large pompoms on each end.
However, I wasn’t sure if I would have enough yarn to do those (I had saved the last small portion of light pink for the decorative edge).
Instead, I opted to do a small pompom edging.
I googled “crochet pompom edging” and found several sites and youtube sites that all seemed to use the same technique. The pompoms are made of stacked cluster stitches and I think they give the scarf a cute, quirky edge.
I love the scarf, but I’m not sure if I’ll keep it for myself.
I am making myself a PomPom Scarf from yummy yarn my SIL gave me…
…and I have the yarn all ready to make a Granny Shawl (free pattern by Charlene Van den Brande). I love this version:
I bought a Caron Cake that has cream, blue and brown and a ball of Lion Brand Wool-Ease in red to mimic this color scheme.
I’m debating giving the Cherry Chip Super Scarf away if someone tells me they would love to have it, or donating it to Hooking for the Homeless (charity in NH) for which I keep a box ready in my house, filling with hats, fingerless gloves and scarves to mail off.
