Free pattern: Triptych Sampler Infinity Cowl

Triptych Sampler Infinity Cowl, free crochet pattern by Marie Segares/Underground Crafter
Welcome to my themed blog series, Crochet Specialty of the Month! Each month in 2015, I’ll feature a specialized crochet technique, stitch pattern, or project type through several posts.

Back in November, I talked about the yarn my family brought me back from their trip to New Zealand.

Countrywide Opals yarn on Underground Crafter blog.

Countrywide Opals, a DK acrylic yarn my mother and sister bought me back from their trip to New Zealand.

I loved the contrast in colors, and when I began this series, I knew this yarn would be the perfect fit for a design using the intermeshing crochet technique.

I also knew I wanted to create a circle scarf with that was completely reversible and combined the multi-color appearance of intermeshing crochet with solid blocks of color.

Rather than fumble through an intermeshing crochet pattern in one color, I decided to make a sampler, using two other reversible stitch patterns.

I combined a basketweave pattern made with front and back post stitches along with a shell stitch using puff stitches to add a little texture.

I hope you enjoy the pattern! I gave the sample to a dear friend, and she loved it!

One of my best friends loves stretchy, jersey-style infinity cowls. This year, I decided to make her a crochet version as a holiday gift.

A detail of the stitch pattern.

Back in November, I took a trip to Saratoga Springs for work, and I had a chance to visit Common Thread and pick up a skein of Holiday Yarns FlockSock Sock Yarn in Wolverine. This color is a blueish gray that is perfect for my friend’s mostly neutral color palette.

Using a much larger than recommended sized hook and crocheting into the back loop only creates a gently textured and super stretchy fabric.

The finished circle scarf is long enough to wrap around twice. It’s very lightweight and breathable, too.

Today’s pattern is the Glimmer Glamour Scarf. This skinny scarf is crocheted with a metallic yarn that adds some pizzazz to your outfit. Made with just two skeins of Lion Brand Vanna’s Glamour yarn, this scarf can be styled several ways. This project crochets up quickly and the traveling bobble v-stitch pattern will keep you on your toes and add a little texture.

I checked out the great tutorials for scarf styling over at Scarves Dot Net, and I’m including a few of my favorites for this scarf.

There’s the Girly Windsor

 

 

…and the Carmen Miranda

…and the Loop and Tuck or the Loose Wrap (right).

This scarf also gave me a chance to share another #scarfie – Lion Brand‘s hashtag for a scarf-wearing selfie.

The Chevrons and Stripes Slouchy Hat is a great stash buster pattern. I used three partial skeins of the lovely Imperial Yarns Erin, a medium weight, sustainable wool yarn made in America. I really enjoyed working with the yarn to create a sample for a pattern that will appear in an upcoming magazine, and I had remnants left over in three different colors.

The pattern uses cluster stitches to create a raised chevron pattern.
