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]

SEED ST = alternating sc and ch st with next row alternating in opposite spaces

  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. 

     Rep Rows 2 and 3 until desired length. Do not break. 

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

Work, work, work

Feels like I worked as hard over the weekend as I did this past week. I thought you were supposed to rest on weekends? Oh wait, that’s right. I’m launching a business. And I have 20 tomato plants in containers on the deck. And I keep adding plants to the small patio on our back entryway. So yeah, no rest for me.

But I would not have it any other way right now. I actually got more done than expected even if it wasn’t as much as I wanted. Most of my to-do list was marked off. And I am further along than I could be considering my Chrome book decided it did not like something I was doing and tried to fight back.

But I am still crafting. I completed a revamp of a design of an adorable little owl. And I made a backdrop for finished pictures. I will be posting some of those very soon. So progress is being made. It’s taken me over 30 years to get this far. Another week or so shouldn’t kill me. Back to my hook for now…
