Spring is on its way here in the UK and, after a flurry of cosy accessories, I have a more lightweight scarf pattern for you today, perfect for the milder weather. Introducing, my new Kites Scarf crochet pattern!
The Kites Scarf is specially designed to show off that beautiful cake of gradient yarn that you have squirreled away in your stash somewhere, just waiting for the perfect project for it. (Or, if you don’t have a cake of gradient yarn already, this pattern is the perfect excuse to treat yourself to one!)
The Kites Scarf uses tapestry crochet to create a striking diamond (or kite-shaped!) pattern over the scarf. As well as looking beautiful, this also means that you have minimal ends to sew in!
I used one gradient yarn cake and one solid version of the same yarn to make my Kites Scarf, which gives a really beautiful result. But, of course, you could always make it in two solid colours if you prefer.
I made my Kites Scarf as part of Hobbii yarn’s “Love Fest” challenge in February, and they kindly supplied me with the yarn to make it. I used Hobbii Twister in colour 53 as the main colour, and Hobbii Twister Solid in colour 126 as the contrasting solid colour.
The scarf actually only needed half of the gradient cake, so I’ve just started hooking up a second one with the other half of the cake and a different solid colour. The result is quite different to the first one but equally lovely and I can’t wait to finish it.
I hope you enjoy this new pattern and, as always, if you have any questions at all, please just drop me a message and I’ll be happy to help.
Oh, and if you’ve not tried tapestry crochet before and are not sure where to start, do check out my tapestry crochet tutorial for all you need to know to get started with this fabulous technique.
