A Reveal: "Piper's Chain Scarf"

I am so happy that I can finally share my designs that have been published in Interweave Crochet's 2010 Accessories Issue!  Today, I am revealing "Piper's Chain Scarf".

First, I just have to say how adorable the model is.  They couldn't have picked a better girl for the job!

The scarf was inspired by the construction paper chains that I used to make when I was in elementary school.  I have fond memories of those days, and as it turns out, crocheting a chain is even more fun!

The chain links are worked in the round and joined together as you go, so there are no seams to sew.  It is a fun, easy project, that is sure make people smile!

I originally submitted a more complex design for a scarf/ neck warmer and the chain was just one element of it.  The editor, Marcy Smith, chose to simplify the design and use only the chain.  I would love to show you a photo of my original design, but I am planning to rework it without the chain to create a new design submission.  This pattern is now available, individually, as a download from Interweave.

My next blog post will be about the other design I have in this issue, "Genevieve's Belt".

  2. Shelby . . . this is beautiful! I just today purchased the new magazine where your pattern is given. I was all set to order the Mission Falls yarn for it, but when I found it I also found that the yarn is no longer available. It seems that the company has gone out of business. are there substations that you might recommend for my yarn? If you have time to respond to me, please do so at my email . . . mjptaylor@aol.com
