I have discovered some amazing yarn. Okay, I know there are TONS of amazing yarns out there, but this one is one of my new favorites. It is bulky and works up quickly and the colors are, well, AMAZING. Ha. I try not to use that word lightly, but I love this yarn! The yarn is Malabrigo Rasta. Do a Google search and you will come up with SO many gorgeous projects using this yarn. However, most of them are knit. I decided to try a simple crochet scarf and was very pleased with how it turned out. I put these scarves together quickly (under two hours each). I’ve included my methods below. Enjoy! Make a bunch for Christmas gifts!!!
With a size N hook, ch 9 LOOSELY (I can’t stress this enough…stay loose with this project. The overall feel of the scarf will be even softer and will give you a bit more length). Turn.
Row 1: (sc, dc, dc) in 3rd ch from hook. Skip next 2 ch. (sc, dc, dc) in next ch. Skip next 2 ch. sc in last ch. ch 1, turn.
Row 2: (sc, dc, dc) in first sc (first stitch). Skip 2 st. (sc, dc, dc) in next sc (you’ll see that you are working in the “valleys” between little hills…if that makes sense!). Skip 2 st. sc in last st. ch 1, turn.
Repeat row 2 until you reach desired length. I made the above scarves with one full skein. Finish off, leaving a long length for sewing. Whipstitch the ends together to form the infinity ring. You could also just leave as a regular scarf!
