Free pattern: A Lil’ Something Sparkly Cowl

I’m releasing a new free crochet pattern every week through December. Each one can be made with 3 skeins of yarn or less, and would make a great gift (for someone else, or as a reward to yourself for all of your holiday crafting!).

Today’s free pattern is A Lil’ Something Sparkly Cowl. This infinity cowl/circle scarf makes a statement by combining Cascade Yarns Cherub Aran Sparkle (a yarn with just the right amount of metallic thread) and a crossed puff stitch to create just the right amount of texture.

Each one can be made with 3 skeins of yarn or less, and would make a great gift (for someone else, or as a reward to yourself for all of your holiday crafting!).

Today’s free pattern is the Tweedy Pineapples Scarf. This short lace scarf is a perfect gift for someone in a warmer climate – like my sister, who lives in Houston.

Holding two strands of yarn together creates a tweedy appearance, and it also allows the pattern to crochet up more quickly, so it’s a great last minute project.

Free pattern: Go West, Young Man Scarf

I’m excited to share a new pattern for an extra long scarf, just as the temperatures are really dropping.

Go West, Young Man Scarf, free crochet pattern for unisex scarf by Marie Segares/Underground Crafter

The Go West, Young Man Scarf makes a great gift for a special guy in your life. (It also works for the ladies – it’s super thick and textured!)

Alternating post stitches create the look of directional arrows pointing westwards. Holding two strands of yarn together creates a tweedy look while also making this scarf extra warm to protect against a harsh winter.

I even took a #scarfie – Lion Brand‘s hashtag for a scarf-wearing selfie. It’s harder than you would think with a DSLR (sorry, kids, I don’t have a smartphone, so it’s the best way for selfies to happen in my world).

Go West, Young Man Scarf, free #crochet pattern by Marie Segares/Underground Crafter #scarfieI have a carefully positioned shawl pin from Michelle’s Assortment to close the tiny gap that usually forms between the wrap around part of the scarf and the hanging ends.

Free Pattern: Quadrilateral, a broomstick lace shawl + Tutorial

Quadrilateral, a broomstick lace shawl, free crochet pattern and tutorial on Underground Crafter blog

Quadrilateral was my third published pattern, released in the August, 2011 issue of the now defunct KnitCircus magazine. (You can read my original post about it here.) It was one of my early explorations into broomstick lace, and it’s very simple to make but quite stunning. It’s actually one of my favorite shawls to wear, but due to the rectangular shape, I usually use a shawl pin.

My favorite shawl pin from Michelle’s Assortment.

The yarn in the photographed sample is the now discontinued Schaefer Yarn Company Heather. You can substitute any fingering weight yarn. (I used Made in America Yarns Wayfarer in Bordeaux for the pictures in the tutorial.) I’m now sharing Quadrilateral for free on the blog, along with a photo tutorial. If you enjoy the pattern, show it some love on Ravelry!
