I recently purchased a crochet kit from Craftsy. The crochet pattern was available immediately via download so I gave it a try using some yarn that I already had.
It’s called the 220 Sport Prince Edward Island scarf and even though I improvised on some of the stitches and left off the fringe, I really love the way it turned out.
The scarf was designed by Kristen Stoltzfus. I used her pattern for the entire mid-section of the scarf and I then went rouge for the outer stitches and edging. Mine looks a lot like hers.
I also decided to leave off the fringe because having used alternate yarn, the scarf was already long enough without adding extra inches of yarn. Besides, I like the way the edge looks.
This scarf took me almost every bit of an entire skein of Caron Simply Soft Tweeds – in off white color. I used a 5 mm hook.
The size ended up being 5 inches wide using the tips of the edging by 74 inches long.
This one will be a birthday gift for someone special but I plan to make more of these beauties soon!
How about you? Do you always follow your crochet patterns exactly to the tee? Honestly, I usually do but it is fun to get creative sometimes. Share your thoughts in the comments. I love hearing from my readers.
