The “Mood Stitches” Scarf came out from nowhere I can say. It was just a relaxing project using some left over yarn from the Ocean Sweater I designed for Hobbii.

At first I wanted to be a scarf made just in simple stitch pattern and maybe some stripes. By the time I was working on it, I was just changing the stitch pattern that I was in the mood to make it at that time.

I am super happy with the result and ready to share how you can make it.

About the design

The design of this Mood Stitches Scarf is simple. We start with only 3 stitches and with every row we will increase with one stitch only in one side.

In this way we will obtain a triangle shape.

If you want you can work more rows then written in the pattern and ware it like a shawl.

To ware it I just tied a knot with a loop at the tighter angle and pulling the opposite corner through that loop. It’s looking nice!!

Materials you will need

  • Yarn
    • Category 2, Fingering yarn
  • Needle

4 mm crochet hook  (G size)

  • You will need a yarn needle also to hide the ends

As I said I used some left over yarn, half cake of Hobbii Twister Solid in color Dark Blue and the last 2 color from a Hobbii Twister which are the Grey color in my scarf. In total I would say that 100 grams of fingering yarn will be enough.

If you want to make it bigger of course you will need more yarn
