Colours Chunky Scarf |Fringed | Free Crochet Pattern Video Tutorial

Yeeee Haw! πŸ˜ƒ Do you guys know how long this has been sitting around in my “finished and ready to publish pile?” πŸ€·β€β™€οΈ It’s been a whirlwind of a few weeks for sure. As some of you know from my first podcast, I have chronic pain and unexplained issues. I think we finally have an answer! I had a full panel allergy test and found out I am allergic to Saccharomyces. If you don’t know what that is, it is a type of mold used in baking and brewing. Aka, Baker’s Yeast & Brewer’s Yeast. I’m allergic to yeast! 😲 Yikes. Anyway, this new diagnosis has sent my life into a whirlwind of emptying the kitchen and trying to figure out what I can and cannot eat. I’m so happy to finally have a piece of the puzzle solved, and now hopefully the chronic pain will disappear. What a relief! πŸ’— Have you guys heard of this?

Thanks for all the support and love,πŸ’• and I’m so grateful you’re all here with me, crocheting, learning, and making together. Let’s talk about this scarf now :).

The Colours scarf is a chunky scarf that is a one-row repeat – it works up very fast for those of us who love a quick project! A bit of a stash buster if you have some yarn laying around you want to use up. Landscapes yarn is soft and comfy, but you can use any yarn youd like of course!

I named it Colours because, well, it has so many beautiful colors! There are endless opportunities for color combos using the Landscapes Yarns by Lion Brand.

This scarf is the perfect pairing with denim and looks great against darker clothes too. The colours really pop. I thought about making the fringe pink or purple, but ended up using a white to give a break from all those colours, but I would love πŸ’• to see someone make this with a bright fringe.

A little bit about the yarn…

I used Lion Brand’s Landscapes in the colorways Desert Spring, Meadow, Coral Reef. This yarn is very fuzzy. If you have any type of respiratory issues, I recommend wearing a light mask with it. I have dust allergies, so I tend to wear one when working with a fuzzy yarn. After you finish, I recommend washing it, then taking scissors or a lighter and getting rid of the frays. Despite the fuzzies, I do love this yarn and the beautiful coloways.

A little note about how this pattern is written…

One stitch! This is a one stitch pattern! Aside from the foundation half double crochet row, you will find this one of the easiest patterns youve worked all year!

This pattern is written with one size in mind and is very straight forward. It involves a one-row repeat after the first few rows and finishes off with a half double crochet row.

  • Pattern is worked in rows.
  • Loosely crochet the hdc into the skipped stitch, pulling up the stitch to loosen it more.
