This Granny Square Scarf Icy Blues is a free crochet pattern for you to enjoy on my blog & it only takes 24 granny squares of your time :).

The inspiration for this scarf came from my last project called Crochet Afghan Top January Blues where I incorporated the puff stitch into my granny squares. And of course this yarn I am using is pretty inspiring too – I love a bit of sparkle!

This Granny Square Scarf Icy Blues is simple to make, yet so eye-catching, with blue granny stitch rounds contrasted with white puff stitch, forming “squares within squares”. The granny squares are joined-as-you-go with the puff stitch.

When you start following the pattern remember if you struggle with joining new yarn/ changing yarn colour using the slip stitch method after fastening off in the previous round, there is a helpful photo tutorial beneath the written pattern, that also shows you how to connect your granny squares. It also talks about crocheting the puff stitch from the wrong side.

This is your basic granny square pattern with ch-1 in the corners and a puff stitch for added interest.

I used two weights of yarn, just because the sparkly aran weight one looked so pretty next to the others in DK that I couldn’t help but combining them all together. So use the larger hook for thicker yarn and smaller hook for thinner yarn.

There is a set of 8 granny squares that repeat themselves 3 times throughout the scarf, so a total of 24 pieces to join-as-you-go in the last round.

Hopefully you’ll EN-JOIN your Granny Square Scarf Icy Blues & I’ll see you on my blog!
