Corner To Corner Scarf
This scarf is inspired by Red Heart’s Free Pattern for a Corner to Corner Afghan. See bottom of this article for the links and video instructions for that afghan. I am not taking responsibility for designing this pattern. By using Red Heart’s pattern and the corner to corner concept, you can make unlimited triangles and 4 sided projects. Corner to corner doesn’t mean the project needs to be square.
- Scarf measures 61″ long by 6″ wide.
- The corner to corner stitch gives a visual look of boxes going across the scarf. There is a total of 7 boxes for the width.
- Size 6.5 mm or Size K Crochet Hook
- 2 Balls of Red Heart Boutique Treasure, Colour is called Tapestry.
- 1 Ball of Red Heart Boutique Changes, colour is called Grey. (border)
