Free crochet pattern: Peacock Shells Triangular Scarf free crochet pattern in Cascade Heritage Wave yarn by Underground Crafter (Scarf of the Month Club 2018)I don’t want to give up my crochet when the warm weather comes, do you? That’s why I like to use sock yarns to create light accessories that I can use to layer against the air conditioning or when the temperatures dip at night.

I used Cascade Heritage Wave yarn, a super fine (also known as sock) weight yarn that is self-patterning. It makes its own gentle stripes so there are fewer ends to weave in at the end and you can wear your scarf right away.

It’s thin enough to fold up and wrap cutely, even though it has a triangular shape. And if you’re shipping, it’s even better because it won’t take up much room in a box or padded envelope once you fold it.

This pattern is part of the Third Annual Scarf of the Month Club with The Stitchin’ Mommy and Oombawka Design.
