I’ve been putting my new-found crochet skills to good use and completed my first project. My Curly Wurly Scarf is a variation of lots of twisted crochet items I’ve seen and developed to form this pink and grey scrummy scarf just for me!
So here’s how it came about:
Pink Double knitting: not very much, enough for foundation chain and one double crochet row
Grey Double knitting: not very much, enough for 2 double crochet rows
Pink/Cream/Grey: I needed just over one ball but would probably make scarf a little shorter next time and use just one ball. I used Sirdar Crofter DK Fair Isle
Make foundation chain, to length you want scarf, in pink (mine was 72inches but would probably go a bit shorter next time)
Row 1: 1 turning chain, then start dc in 2nd chain and dc in each chain of foundation chain, turn
Row 2: Join grey. 1 turning chain, then start dc in 2nd chain and dc in each dc, turn
Row 3: Join Fair Isle. 3 turning chain (counts as 1tr), 2tr into same place, then 3tr into every dc, turn (I did try just 2tr into each dc but found in this yarn it didn’t create any twist)
Row 4: 4 turning chain (counts as 1dtr), 1 dtr into same place, then 2dtr into each tr, turn
Row 5: Join grey. 1 turning chain, then start dc in 2nd chain and dc in each dtr, fasten off.
That’s it! A curly wurly scarf!! I have lots of ideas on curly wurly colour combinations so there may well be more. It was fairly quick to make, although row 4 took quite a while to complete.
I am delighted with the result of this and look forward to wearing it with lovely grey woolies this winter!
