Crochet Patterns for Scarf-spiration

Ok, we’ve covered three knitting patterns that would be great for The Wrap Up, Lancaster! Project, but I know A LOT of you out there crochet.  If you are stuck in a crochet rut this summer, and need some “scarf-spiration,” here are three great patterns for you.

Three Great Crochet Scarf Patterns

Slip Slope Scarf Pattern:  Vashti Braha created this clever crochet scarf using short rows.  It’s adorable, and would be great for any crocheter looking to learn a new technique.  It’s free on Ravelry!

Slip Slope Scarf: Crochet Short Rows Can Be Fun!

Twisted Crochet Neckwarmer:  This crocheted infinity scarf was made by accident by its creator, Anneka Weise over at Crochet in Paternoster.  She includes detailed instructions and diagrams in her blog post about her creation.  Hop on over there, again, it’s free!

Scarf with Pockets: Why not crochet a scarf that can keep both your neck AND hands warm?  I like this clever scarf over on Ravelry by Justine Vo.  Again, this would be a great pattern for beginner and veteran crocheters alike!  It’s a free pattern, too!

So, crocheters, got some ideas?  Want to share some here in the comments with us?  We’d love to hear from you!

Next up, weavers, I know there are a few of you out there who donate scarves to WUL!  I will be sharing a few scarf-spirational patterns for you next!

Oh, and for everyone, we’ve got a Pinterest board with a lot more great ideas.  Take a look and we’d love for your to follow it!

Oh, and hey! Don’t forget about The Big WUL Giveaway: Take 2!

The Big WUL Giveaway:  Take 2 ends at MIDNIGHT JULY 8, 2016!!!!  You only need to comment to enter!  There are two other ways to get additional entries, as well.

 

Knitting Inspiration in Warm Weather

Once the weather usually turns warmer, a lot of knitters, such as myself, run into “knitters’ block.”  I don’t know what to knit and I want some inspiration!  Still, the warm weather months are an excellent time to get ready for the colder ones.  Thinking ahead, here are three scarf patterns that are excellent for you to knit during the hot summer to get ready for the cooler ones that will be upon us before you know it.

Three Great Scarf Patterns

Full Circle Button Scarf:  This first pattern was written by WUL founder, Angelia Reed!  It’s a beautiful scarf pattern that she designed and is selling for $4.00 on Ravelry.  Quality patterns a rare gems online, and this is one of them. I’ve seen the finished product of this scarf in person, and it’s gorgeous.

MissMarple Scarf:  Now, this is one of my personal favorites.  It’s a keyhole scarf, meaning that it’s constructed so that you can slip one end into a loop on the other, and keep the draft off your neck.  Actually, it’s just easier to show you a picture.  This one is free, but the measurements are in metric, so you will have to do a little math to figure out your gauge and measurements.

Jenn's Miss Marple Scarf

Not a Celebrity Scarf (But it Should Be):  This particular pattern has a special place in my heart; it’s where I learned basic increasing and decreasing right after I started knitting.  Written by knitting manufacturer Skacel, this pattern is knit it one piece, but looks like modular triangles.  It looks great in slow color changing ombre yarns.  It’s great for both beginners and advanced knitters.  Oh, and it’s free, too.

Do you have a little more warm weather inspiration for knitting?

Crocheters, I’ll hit you guys up next post with some great ideas.

In the meantime, you have two tasks.  First, comment here with what your favorite go-to scarf pattern is.  Share you knowledge with us!  Second, hop on over to the Big WUL Giveaway:  Take 2 page and enter if you haven’t already!  Just a comment and a few shares will enter you in a drawing for great stuff!
