I recently tried this awesome new to me yarn to create a crochet scarf for spring! Its called Comfy Color Mist. When I was given a challenge to create something for a Spring Blog Hop I knew I wanted to use a cotton yarn.
I was instantly drawn to this Comfy Color Mist Yarn. There were so many colors that were perfect for Spring and best yet, it was a cotton yarn! If you have the chance to work with this yarn and enjoy working with cotton yarns then I think you’ll like this one.
I also want to thank We Crochet for providing the yarn in order for me to create this scarf design.
There are 2 fun features about this scarf. The first feature is the stitch that is used. The Y-stitch is what gives this scarf the open airy look and feel to it. If you have never worked a Y stitch before it is not very difficult at all. It is just a combination of a treble crochet, a chain stitch and a double crochet.
The Y-stitch can be used as a stand alone stitch in an entire design. It can also be used in stand alone rows that are separated by another crochet stitch. This spring scarf design uses the Y-stitches separated by a row of single crochet stitches.
You can find a full Y-stitch tutorial and explanation here – https://www.simplyhookedbyjanet.com/y-stitch-tutorial/ but below will also be a small stitch explanation.
The second feature that I really enjoy with this spring scarf is that it is worked slightly on the bias. Working the scarf this way adds a diagonal slant and look to the rows. This also adds a nice flow and point to each end of the scarf.
What does working in the bias mean? In this case that just means that on one end of a row there will be an increase added and on the opposite end a decrease added.
If you like this spring scarf that uses the Y-stitch then you may also like this Spring Shawl that also uses the Y-stitch. Check out the Premier Shawl here – https://simplyhookedbyjanet.com/premier-shawl-crochet-pattern/
