The month of March has been in full swing. Where has it gone??
For this month’s Knitcrate yarn subscription we got a gorgeous Knitologie yarn skein with awesome and interesting instructions.
The Knitologie Sheen is a yarn with an interesting color combination: yellow, dark cobalt blue and grey. It’s is simply unique and stunning.
They’re actually having a big series of promotions right now:
1-They’re offering 1 Free Mystery Crate for any new subscriber to the KnitCrate Membership.
2 -Plus, you can get 20% off your new subscription by entering the code Joanne20 at checkout. You can view their membership options here: http://mbsy.co/lb3Pg
(not really sure if both codes are applicable, but let me get back on that).
We created a project tutorial for this yarn: The Cross-Stitch Crochet Scarf, which is a very nicely textured stitch pattern and a simple, yet elegant project to make.
Here are the materials and instructions:
Crochet Crossed Stitch Scarf with Knitcrate
This is fingering yarn and the skein has 400 yards.
The gauge is 6” for 28 stitches.
Repeat from * to *
Make 29 chains.
On the second from the hook, start making 1 row of single crochet=28
Stitch made on each row:
Chain 2, double crochet on the next stitch,
*Skip 1, dc on the next and through the back of that dc, make a dc on the one you skipped*.
Last 2: dc on the next 2 chains.
Repeat this process for as long as you want your scarf to be.
Make sure you finish with 1 row of single crochet.
Weave in the ends.
Here’s the full video tutorial:
