I designed this scarf for a blog hop in which the theme was “Use Your Stash”.

Originally, my plan was to colorblock light gray, white and black - all colors I have in my stash, but when I starting working with the white, I had a feeling it might have been Aunt Lydia’s #10 Crochet Thread, which is a teeny tiny bit thicker, and requires a hook change, so instead I picked the Teal from my stash.

When I reached the point to switch to the third color, I pulled out the black, and realized that I didn’t have enough to finish this scarf, so I dug a little deeper, and found the gorgeous orange color called Papaya. I wasn’t sold on the idea at first, but as I continued to work, I really fell in love with it, and thought it was the perfect color combination for Fall! Now, #10 crochet thread isn’t really the best cool weather yarn, but it does work perfectly for late Summer/early Fall, or for the office!

Materials:

  • #10 Crochet Thread - For the Adult Small I used 540 Yards of Hobby Lobby’s Artiste Cotton Crochet Thread in Cloud (I think - I lost the label, and online it looks a little dark), Jade Blue Teal and Papaya Orange
  • Tapestry Needle for Weaving in Ends
  • 2.35mm Crochet Hook

Materials Notes:
Yarn Alternative: Aunt Lydia’s Crochet #10 Thread.

One skein of both Artiste #10 Crochet Thread & Aunt Lydia’s #10 Crochet Thread are 350 Yards, so if you don’t colorblock like I did, You will probably still need at least two skeins to complete any of the sizes included.

Time Spent:
I worked the teen/adult small size scarf in several seatings for a total of about 12 hours.
