Autumn fashion is all about layering; mixing and matching a variety of shapes, fabrics, and textures to add dimension to your outfit. Dandelion Meadow was designed to become your go-to transitional piece as the warm weather fades and the cool, crisp air takes its place. This scarf was designed to be a welcome addition to your favourite fall ensemble, adding that pop of texture and warmth that can only be achieved with knitwear. Crochet your own version and enjoy the repetitive, yet engaging, nature of the row repeats as you watch the little dandelion shapes come to life with each row of shells you complete.
Note that this yarn is labeled as an "Aran/Heavy Worsted", however to me this feels more like a light worsted or even a heavy DK weight.
Yarn Substitution Notes: Substitute Simply Alpaca with any similar, category #4 worsted weight yarn for a version similar to my sample shown or try this pattern using any yarn weight you like (see note below).
Changing yarn weights: You can choose a different yarn weight altogether! Simply add or subtract 8 stitches from the initial chain until reaching your desired scarf width, then follow the pattern exactly as it's written.
Hook: Size U.S. J/10 (6 mm) or size needed to obtain gauge
Notions: Tapestry needle, object to wrap your fringe around (I used my iPhone)
Finished scarf measures approximately 10” [25.5 cm] in width and 64” [162.5 cm] in length, measured before fringe.
