What? A Cold Winter!

Written by Diva Dan

What can I say! Here I am on the hawtest day of our ‘where was summer’ to give you a pattern that I did last week wearing a sweater and pants. Yes, we have been complaining that we have not had much of a hawt summer but on the good side, my garden is just fabulous with all the rain we have had.

The BAD news, the Farmers Almanac is saying the we are going to have a much colder and longer winter. Lets get a head start in crocheting our winter clothes! At this point today, it will likely be the only really hawt day of our summer. BOOOO! But that is not going to stop me from crocheting and sweating away. 

I had the inspiration to use  Lion Brand’s Heartland Thick and Quick. I was telling Mikey, ‘I really like it thick and quick’ and what I got was a smirk on his face and after a real big smile! Only a true hooker, I mean crocheter, would get this joke! haha

The pattern  for the scarf is quite easy and you can ad-lib and create your own style.

I am not much of a crocheter, matter of fact, I crochet like I knit! It’s slower but the results are still the same. Nor do I write patterns but here is a simplified version of what I did. The Yarn was so easy to use and no issues with splitting or bunching.  

Colour A: 2 Balls Heartland® Thick and Quick® Acadia,

Colour B: 2 Balls Heartland® Thick and Quick® Joshua Tree

Match the hook to the Yarn Ball Recommendation of your yarn of choice.
Chain in groups of 4 to desire length with Colour A

  • Row 1 – Hdc across continued with Colour A
  • Row 2 & 3  – Arrow stitch across with Colour B
  • Row 4 – Sc across with Colour A
  • Row 4 – Treble cris cross stitch across continue with Colour A. I added two Double Crochets at the beginning and the End
  • Row 5 – Sc across continue with Colour A
  • Row 6 & 7  – Arrow Stitch across with Colour B
  • Row 8 – Dc across with Colour A
  • Row 9 – Sc across with Colour B

Written Instructions for Arrow Stitch

Match the hook to the Yarn Ball Recommendation of your yarn of choice.

  1. Ch in multiples of 4 until you get the desired length chain. Add 3 extra chains at the end.
  2. (Right Side) Treble Crochet, in the 7th chain from the hook. From the 7th chain, count back 3 chains and begin to *double crochet in the next 3 chains by moving the treble in front of your work and inserting your hook behind the trebles when inserting into the chain.  Count to the 4th empty chain and place a treble crochet and repeat * all the way across. Final stitch is a double crochet.
  3. (Wrong Side) Chain 3, * Skip to the 4th skip and treble crochet, double crochet into each of the 3 skipped stitches. When double crocheting, work in front of the treble. This pushes the treble back to be on the right side. Repeat * Across. Double Crochet into the final stitch.
  4. (Right Side)  I put a SC row across. Simple Ch 1, SC into each st across. This is optional.
  5. (Wrong Side) Chain 3, * Skip to the 4th skip and treble crochet, double crochet into each of the 3 skipped stitches. When double crocheting, work in front of the treble. This pushes the treble back to be on the right side. Repeat * Across. Double Crochet into the final stitch.
  6. Repeat Rows 3 to complete this arrow.
