Hi! This is Kami. Be sure to come join me over on Instagram and say Hi.
I absolutely loved the stitch combination and the texture of the Susie Blossom Ear Warmer that I recently tested. Imagine how excited I was to find out that it has a matching scarf! The Susie Blossom Scarf by Punky Peach Crochet has all the same texture of the ear warmer, but because of the difference in construction there is a slight variation in the stitches used.
I like that this set comes with instructions for DK yarn (that’s lightweight #3), living in Arizona the weather just doesn’t get cold enough for heavier weight yarns. But if you do live in a colder climate, I have great news for you because this pattern also includes options for worsted weight yarn. The scarf also has two length options included as well as all of the information you need to customize it to your preferred size. Everyone loves patterns with options, right?
What Materials Do You Need to Crochet a Scarf:
- Deramores Essentials DK Yarn in Wild Orchid and Smoke
- H8/5mm Crochet Hook
- Yarn Needle
- Measuring Tape
- Blocking Materials
- Stitch Markers (I didn’t use, but it is recommended in the pattern for easier counting)
- Susie Blossom Scarf, Paid Crochet Pattern from Punky Peach Crochet on Etsy
The instructions for this scarf are written for just one color but it was very easy to adapt it to use two colors as I did. I did rows 1 and 7-10 in Wild Orchid (dark purple) and rows 2-6 in Smoke (light gray). I made a size 1 scarf and the teen/small adult size ear warmer and still had a bit of yarn left over.
How Long Does it Take to Crochet a Scarf:
This scarf works up fairly quickly I estimate that it took me around 5 hours to make including blocking and seaming.
My finished scarf measured 56″ long and about 5.5″ wide after blocking which was pretty close to the measurements that were listed for this size.
The gauge listed in the pattern was 14.5 stitches x 14.5 rows = 4″ square after blocking. Because I was using acrylic yarn and it isn’t the easiest to block I made sure that my measurements were very close and then just stretched the last little bit when blocking.
This scarf is constructed lengthwise, which means that you have a lot of stitches in each row but only a few rows. To me scarves that are constructed this way seem to work up a lot quicker so this is usually my preferred construction style. It is worked flat (blocked) and then seamed to create an infinity scarf, but if you prefer it open there are a few suggestions provided in the pattern. The pattern is worked in two sections so once you complete the first section you will be reattaching to the foundation row and working the second section. Right side and wrong side become very important here, if you tend to get these confused you can always mark the right side with a stitch marker to make it easier to determine. Although this pattern is listed as intermediate it is on the easier side. With knowledge of front post stitches and third loop; there are picture tutorials to help with these stitches, I think that this is doable for most crocheters.
