I bought this yarn on a whim. I was looking for a fun stretchy yarn to make a headband out of, and saw this yarn calling my name. (You know what I’m talking about it you’ve had yarn just call your name out to you!)
This cute scarf is made out of Red Heart Curly Q yarn in a color called Calypso. (The first link takes you to Jo-Ann.com where I bought the yarn.)
I designed this scarf after a scarf one of my friends purchased at an upscale retail store, and of course I thought to myself, “I can make that!”
This is a photo instructable for the pattern I wrote up for the scarf.
As there is not currently a ‘free pattern’ available for a crocheted pattern of this type of scarf and this yarn, I apologize for having to sell the pattern for $1.50 as a Ravelry download. But, you can make as many scarves as you want for gifts and to sell at Boutiques (like me) once you have the pattern, so maybe you can make your money back.
You can purchase the pattern for $1.50 on Ravelry, and you can get it here: Curly Q Keyhole Scarf Pattern. The pattern comes with all the attached figures and photos in a .pdf file format as well as a tutorial on how to do one of the stitches, a reverse half double crochet stitch.
Please feel free to use this pattern for personal use, or selling completed ones, but PLEASE, give me the credit for the pattern by preferably placing a link on your completed project page or sale cards. As all designers, I would appreciate if you would not call this pattern as your own, or copy the photos for this project for anything other than personal use.
