Isar Scarf

I fell in love with this Colinette Jitterbug at a yarn store this past winter and had to have it. I had originally planned on making a Clapotis with the yarn. The yarn pools really splotchy in the Clapotis I saw made with this colorway, so I changed plans and made this scarf instead.





It's a crochet project and I can only officially crochet granny squares, so it was a bit tricky starting this scarf. Once I got the hang of things and figured out the pattern, it was really simple to make. This scarf is actually similar to the granny square because it only uses double crochet and chain stitches.





I think that I might only crochet scarves from now on. This was a quick project and really ate up the yarn at an alarming rate...a great stash buster!

  4. I love the look of the scarf! Great job!
    And if you're wanting to dent your yarn stash, crochet is the way to go. It uses an average of 30% more yarn than knitting. I just wish I knew how to do it both left handed and right handed; my right hand complains after marathon crocheting. :-/
