Crochet Scarf Forever Green
When I received this pretty ball of sock yarn a Zauberball, I made the classic mistake and didn’t think to buy another immediately! One ball just isn’t enough for a pair of socks. I’ve struggled with getting to grips sock sizing with the thinner sock yarn, so I searched high and low for months for a pattern that I liked that would use just the one ball. I just couldn’t find a pattern that showed off the beautiful colour range in this Zauberball so I had no alternative but to make up a pattern for this pretty fingerling yarn. The colourway inspired me to make a spring scarf in anticipation of the beautiful green colours of summer, this is a perfect gift for Mother’s Day.
make a spring scarf in anticipation of the beautiful green colours of summer.
I knew I wanted something lacy, but I was worried that one ball wouldn’t quite be enough to get a good length or width for wrapping around your shoulders with a pattern that is all lacy shells. So I chose two stitch patterns to overcome this; a filet crochet basic square pattern and a two-row repeating shell pattern. You can see the effect of the using the two together in picture below.
I really enjoyed making this scarf it was very portable so became my travel companion for many Railway journeys across the southwest of England. I hope you enjoy making it as much as I have xx

When starting your first row of fillet crochet it may not be quite long enough for the fillet crochet repeat, just reduce your spacing slightly to accommodate a full ch 1, 1trc in the first row. It will then correct itself as you repeat each row.
Blocking this scarf is essential to get the width and to even out the two stitch patterns.
