Float Away Scarf


Float Away Scarf

This scarf is one of the reasons I was so jacked up about making a ripple blanket. I designed it back in December as my staff project for the spring 2007 Interweave Crochet, and I absolutely loved making it. The yarn is delicious and I dig the ribbed ripple texture.

Here are the specs:

Pattern: My own staff project in the spring 2007 Interweave Crochet (it's in yarn stores now)

Yarn: Austermann Bambou Soft (65% wool, 35% bamboo; 110 yd [100 m]/1 3⁄4 oz [50 g]): #07 teal, 2 balls. Yarn distributed by Skacel.

Hooks: 6mm and 5mm

I'm still working on my ripple blanket, of course. But I travel a lot and it's way too big to take with me. In my travels, though, I do pick up odd balls to play with, and of course they'll end up in the ripple...
