Humbug Scarf by Joanne Scrace from The Crochet Project
We’re so thrilled to stock a selection of books and sheets from The Crochet Project by Joanne Scrace and Kat Goldin, including Joanne Scrace’s Humbug Scarf. We also stock The Learn to Crochet book and the single sheet pattern the Doris Shawl.
Want a scarf with some wow but not too much thinking to do as you make it? This easily memorised pattern, worked on the bias, keeps your fingers busy while your mind is occupied (or is simple enough for beginners) and lets the colours of the hand-dyed yarn do all the talking.
Just one 100g skein of 4ply makes a nice long crescent shaped scarf for wrapping with a pretty puff stitch detail. We planned for the pooling on a skein of Socka from Sparkleduck but it will work well with self stripings and highly variagated yarns too. – The Crochet Project
Finished depth: 23cm/9in
Finished length: 165cm/65in
Length is easily adjusted by working more or fewer rows. A deeper scarf can be achieved by working more repeats in the set up section. Altering the size alters the yarn required.
