Happy Free Pattern Day

I mentioned a free pattern the last time I was here. So I want to bring you a lovely, simple scarf pattern that I hope you will adore as much as I do. The Seedling Scarf uses seed stitch, a quick and easy stitch that works up soft and fast.

I work the scarf on the short end so it doesn’t feel like that long row goes on forever. And using only single crochet and chains, seed stitch is one of the easiest stitches to do. I like having a solid row of singles on both ends to cap it off. This pattern works well in variegated yarns. Here I’ve shown it in a bright solid color I like, grass green.

Okay, enough chattering. I hope you like the pattern. Here it is:

Size H hook

7 oz Grass Green yarn

Stitch Abbreviations

CH = chain

STS = stitch

SK = skip

SC = single crochet

REP =  repeat 

REP from * = repeat everything inside these (symbols) or [these]

  1. Ch 20, sc in 2nd ch and ea ch across. 19 sts. 
  2. Ch 1, turn; Sc, [ (ch1 sts, sk 1 sts), sc in next st],* rep from * across. End with sc in last st. 
  3. Ch 1, turn; Sc in 1st two sts, (ch 1, sk one st, sc in next st);* rep from * across to next to last st. End with a sc in last st.

     Work one row Sc in ea st across to finish. Break and weave in ends.

News and stuff

Good news. Not the depressing stuff on TV.

My Etsy and Ravelry shops will be open soon! Just wanted to let you know in case you noticed those little links on the Home page. I will be selling primarily patterns that you can crochet yourself. They will be digital downloads. It is the safest thing to do in the age of Corona Virus. You don’t even have to get out of your pajamas.

I will definitely let you know once the sites are live. You will find patterns for all the things I enjoy making. Amigurumi animals of all shapes and sizes, monsters, pretty scarves, baby blankets and toys, and lots more. I hope you will enjoy them, too. For now though, where did I put my coffee cup…
