“Faux-knit” scarf pattern published in Inside Crochet!

September 7, 2011 at 4:21 pm | Posted in Uncategorized | Leave a comment

Based on broomstick lace and post stitch techniques, the Fritillary Scarf looks and feels like vertical rows of stylish knit drop-stitches and smooth stockinette, but is made with the fun of crochet! Plus, there’s not a single end to weave in, as the yarn tails are integrated into the fringe! The scarf pattern is featured in the August 2011 Issue 20 of Inside Crochet magazine.

With its violet-coloured yarn, this pattern is named for the fritillary butterflies, many species of which are so sensitive in their caterpillar stage that they eat only violets! Fritillaries and other pollinators world-wide are in decline; to find out how you can help, visit the Xerces Society at www.xerces.org.

Join a crochet-along (CAL) for this pattern in the Wild Bird Song Designs group on Ravelry, where I’m happy to answer questions and cheer your projects along!

This pattern uses UK crochet terminology, which is translated to US crochet terminology in the back of the magazine.
