I had seen the emails and social media posts. Super Size Super Scarves seem to be all over. Now, I am a tiny gal at only 5'1" so I wasn't to sure about this trend and if I was ready to jump on board. Then the fine folks at Boye Yarn Crafts reached out to me to collaborate and participate in their Super Scarf Blog Hop and I thought, yes... count me IN!
I selected a chunky vibrant purple yarn called Wool Up Bulky from Bernat and big furry pom pom balls for trim and planned to do a super sized basket weave scarf. This purple is so bright I just love looking at it! But as I started swatching, I let the yarn tell me what to do and it screamed make me a puff stitch scarf. So I did! Frogged the basket weave and started over and just love it.
This scarf works up super quick. Now for me, I didn't want a super wide and super long scarf. So I kept it about 7" width. If you want to go wider you can and you will see it is very easy once you get the rhythm of the pattern. I am beyond thrilled with the final result and had so much fun making it. It was the perfect project for a cool breezy fall afternoon. This pattern is free below, but if you would like a printable version with the chart you can grab it on my site or in my etsy shop.
This pattern can easily be worked up in an afternoon! Enjoy! And thank you Boye for inviting me to the Super Scarf blog hop!
