I want to knit them all and, believe it or not, the first one I picked was a crochet pattern. The Granny Stripe Scarf.
My grandmother knit and crochet and she taught me how to make the basic crochet stitch when I was 7. Not sure I can call myself a crocheter with that limited knowledge, but the author of the pattern said I could do it, so I was going to try.
Good thing my Purl Jam buddies can crochet and YouTube has plenty of videos.
This pattern was the perfect start for a beginner crocheter. The pattern has some compassion written in it for a first timer and it was very easy to follow. It just takes awhile to complete all the rows.
I substituted Knit Picks Palette yarn in the same colors as the pattern, but I bet it would be amazing in Purl Soho’s Line Weight yarn as noted in the pattern. I was trying to make it more affordable.
I decided to add fringe instead of weaving in all those ends.
I love it and I find out of all my scarves – I grab this one first on my way out the door.
