candy color scarf – part 1

12 Comments

between crocheting my new summer blanket and cleaning up dirt and paint in the garden (the exterior of the apartment building i live gets a facelift but what a mess that gives!), i started on a smaller project: a scarf of candy colors.

tutorial for the scarf

if you like to crochet this scarf too, here is how you can.the pattern for the little squares is japanese, but i don’t know anymore where i found it.
the first two rows are quite similar to the squares of my colorful blanket. see my “great” drawing.

  • row 1 for the scarf is the same as row 1 on the drawing 
  • row 2 is almost the same but now you crochet 1 chain between every 2 dc groups
  • row 3 is different, but very easy (as you can see on the photo above):

a. if you don’t change color: ss in 2nd dc of last 2 dc group, 1 ch, 1 sc in first 1 ch space, 5 ch, *1 sc in next 1 ch space, 5 ch* repeat between * * till end of row, ss to first sc.

b. if you start this row with a new color: attach to any 1 ch space, 1 sc into the same 1 ch space, 5 ch, *1 sc in next 1 ch space, 5 ch*, repeat between * * till end of row, ss to first sc. 

 

another technique when changing colors

i show you how i work when changing colors, maybe you like to see it. since a few years i use this way and it gives a much neater result. look at the difference between my work now and the bottom of a bag i’ve made a few years ago. that is the way of changing colors you learn from crochet books and patterns but personally i prefer the sewing method. if you need more explanation, please let me know.
