I don’t know about you, but I love springtime! The flowers start to bloom, the weather becomes a little warmer and the kids can finally go out and play! Sometimes my boys can get a little stir crazy being inside all the time. It’s nice to go outside and breath in some fresh air!
Even though Spring is right around the corner, it’s still a little nippy in the morning when I drive my son to school. All the scarves that I own are bulky and are meant for chilly, freezing weather. So I wanted to crochet a scarf that it more lightweight and that I could wear as we head into Spring.
The Mattina Scarf is perfect for the transitioning weather. Mattina is Italian for Morning. It is crocheted using Lion Brand’s Feels Like Butta yarn. This yarn is so soft! It it truly amazing! This yarn is like no yarn I have ever felt before! Not only is this yarn perfect for crocheting accessories, but it would be amazing for a baby blanket as well. It comes in a number of pastels but also darker and richer colors for accessories. The color I chose for my scarf is Ice. Something about the color reminded me of Spring. You can make this scarf as long or as short as you would like. I added fringe but it is totally optional.
2 to 3 skeins of Lion Brand Feels Like Butta Yarn.
4mm Crochet Hook
Single Crochet (sc)
Back Loop Only (blo)
Half Double Crochet (hdc)
Triangle Stitch (ts) – Ch.3, Yarn over and insert hook into the first stitch, yarn over, and pull up a loop. Yarn over and insert hook into the next stitch, yarn over, and pull up a loop (2 more times). There are 7 loops on hook. Yarn over and pull through all 7 loops. Ch.2
Note – When completing a row of Triangle Stitches, make sure you always ch.3 to start the row. A new Triangle Stitch always starts in the last stitch that was worked. Here is a VIDEO TUTORIAL to help.
The size of my scarf is roughly 6″ wide and 88″ long.
Row 1 – sc in 2nd ch from hook and each ch across. (24)
Row 2 – Ch.3, complete a row of ts across the row. Remember to ch.2 after every ts. After the last triangle of the row, you will ch.1 and complete a hdc in the last stitch. (24 stitches, 11 Triangles)
Row 3 – Ch. 1 turn, sc in the first st, sc in the ch.1 space, 2 sc in each each ch. 2 space across. After the last ch.2 space, complete a sc in the top of the ts of previous row. Then, complete a sc under the ch.3 of previous row. (24)
Row 4 – Ch.1 turn, hdc in the first st and each st across. (24)
Row 5 – Ch.1 turn, sc blo in the first st and each st across. (24)
Continue repeating rows 2 thru 5 for the remainder of the scarf. I used roughly 2 1/2 skeins.
