If you’ve never done double-ended crochet before, the Skinny Minny Scarf is the perfect pattern to try it on.

Skinny Minny Scarf, free double-ended Tunisian crochet pattern and tutorial by Underground CrafterI used two different weights of yarn – Red Heart Boutique Unforgettable, a medium weight yarn, and Red Heart Grande, a super bulky weight yarn. I love the way this turned out! It’s a great accent scarf to wear year round.

If you’re new to double-ended crochet, I’ve included a video tutorial after the pattern.

About the guest designer

Nicole learned to knit and crochet when she was young and would pick it up and put it down throughout her life. Being a left-handed person surrounded by right-handed people trying to teach her things was frustrating. When she moved to Winnipeg ten years ago, her coworkers taught her continental knitting, and suddenly yarn was a lot less threatening. During this time, she retaught herself crochet and fell in love with Tunisian crochet.

Nicole is often complimented on her use of color and her relationship with color is an intense sensory experience because she has a neurological condition called chromesthesia (a branch of synasthesia) that gives her an enhanced perception of smell, tactile sensation, and color – all via sound.

Nicole also describes herself as a kettlebell fanatic and “all around socially awkward nice lady.” She has been known to use some colorful language on her blog (and in real life).
