Okay fellow crocheters, here is a great quick crochet shawlette or scarf for your collection or to give as a gift. I found this pattern while searching Ravelry for something to do with my Yarnbox yarn that wasn’t as complicated as the pattern they sent. The pattern is written by Tamara Kelly of Moogly. You can visit her site to get the pattern details. She has so many great patterns available, so be sure to check them all out once you are at her site.
I am not going to lie, this one was a little tricky for me to start, which is why I am rating it advanced beginner for difficulty. The pattern was clear and there is a video clip of the technique and stitch, but it still took me a while to feel confident that I was doing it correctly. I took around 7 and a half hours to complete this shawlette.
The key : Just keep the 5,3,5,3 pattern in your head and once you get that, then you have it! When reading your work, look for the 3 stitches to line up correctly. I had a few times where my count was off, but I just kept going and lined it back up with the next section. If someone got up close and counted stitches, they could see where I did that, but when I smooth it out and look at it, I can’t tell that there was any issue. So, I love that it didn’t have to be perfect to still look beautiful.
Style Different Ways
I really like that I can wear this different ways. I like it wrapped as a scarf around my neck. It is small enough that it doesn’t get too bulky, but large enough to show the stitch definition and the shape.
It also looks great from the back and you can really see the pretty pattern and repetition of the pattern when worn like this.
Sugarbush Yarns – Bliss
In my second Yarnbox, I received 5 balls of Sugarbush Bliss. So far, this is my favorite yarn of all time. It is SO soft and it works up like a dream. The stitch definition is outstanding and I had no issues with splitting or tangling. Simply perfection…and the colors. Just go check it out and see if your local yarn store stocks it. If they don’t, ask them to order some. You won’t regret it.
