|Fluffy waffle scarves in a variety of colors|
This thick and chunky yarn made for a super soft, warm scarf. This time around I wanted to still use a soft and fluffy yarn, but much thinner, so the scarf would be more decorative. I stuck with lion brand but this time used their "Homespun" yarn.
This stuff is SOOO soft! I often comment that it feels like "I'm crocheting a muppet". It is a lot thinner than the original thick and chunky stuff, and it works up more fine and airy. The trick is I was using pretty loose stitches and still using my trusty "N" crochet hook. Man I love this "N" hook. I found one with a smooth bamboo handle and it makes things move quickly.
I wanted to make this scarf long enough so that it could be doubled up in half and pulled through, so it could look more like a cowl if the owner wanted. My link to the original scarf is the same pattern I used here, but to make it longer, I loosely chained 130 stitches. Chain 4 at the end, then skipping the first chain, DC in the next chain. Chain one, skip one chain and DC. It's a pattern you do across the whole scarf to get that waffle effect.
This yarn is so light and fluffy that when you actually put it on, it collapses on itself and looks like a much more complicated pattern than it actually was.
