Today, by chance, I came across a pretty v-neck scarf crochet pattern that I fell in love with. So much so, that I had to drop everything I was doing, and crochet one immediately.
One Skein Crochet Project
Judging by the ease of this particular pattern and the fact that I was able to complete the project, quickly, with a single skein of yarn, I think this is going to become a new favorite of mine. And don’t tell anyone but it’s probably going to be this year’s generic Christmas gift for family and friends.
I love this scarf design because it has the trendy and ultra chic triangle (v-neck) point at the neckline without all the extra bulk of wearing a triangle shawl backwards. And you still have the option of wearing it like a regular old-fashioned long straight scarf.
I used one skein of Red Heart Fiesta yarn in Harvest color to complete mine. If you visit the site where I found the pattern, you’ll see that theirs seems to have a nicer drape to it and the yarn is a bit thinner. They also added some dangling coins to the edges and one at the neckline to finish it off. I simply used a bit of a chained ruffle on my edges. I think it would look nice with some fringe but the type of yarn I used has strands of shiny string twisted through it and I know this would eventually untwist and look awful as fringe in the future.
I think my v-neck scarf will be perfect for cooler winter months but I did take advantage of the 20% off coupon offered by kristinomdahl.com (at the site where I found the pattern) to purchase a skein of the same bamboo yarn that was used on the original – in a different color. Yes, I love it that much! I think the elegant-looking bamboo yarn will make it possible to wear this style of scarf all year round.
I love that a portion of the sale will go towards Project Kristin Cares, which helps victims of domestic violence.
What do you think? Love it or leave it? Have you ever used bamboo yarn? I haven’t yet and I really can’t wait to receive my order so I can test it out.
Until next time,
