Miss Mille Scarf

Today I share a special crochet scarf pattern with you: the Miss Mille Scarf. It’s a very simple pattern: the scarf itself is made with double crochet stitches and the white diamond shaped overlay is made with slip stitches. This is the fourth design in my new series of patterns dedicated to my extended family (people with the same condition as me).

About Mille

The Miss Mille Scarf is dedicated to Mille, a six year old girl from Denmark. She has a younger brother and together with their parents they live about an hour from Kopenhagen. Mille is very good at roller skating and even won the 7th place in the local championships. She often gets to wear beautiful outfits for her roller skating competitions.

Mille reminds me of myself. I recognize a lot of myself in her. I really hope I can meet Mille and her family soon. Denmark is a 7 hour drive by car from my parents’ home in Germany, which makes Mille one of the closest ones living near me.

About the design

Like the previous three patterns, I tried to make the pattern as simple as possible. I decided to make a simple crochet scarf, but with a special twist to make it more unique and chic. I used the surface slip stitch technique with white yarn on the vibrant colors to create a beautiful effect.

I chose a yarn cake that has the same colors as Mille’s roller skating outfit which has blue, pink and purple gradient colors. Oh and you know what? The scarf is reversible! The back of the slip stitches look different than the front and I personally think both sides look really good.

About the yarn

For this crochet scarf I used a Scheepjes Whirl in color ‘Rosewater Cocktail’. I only used the blue, purple and pink part of the cake and I really love how the colors change in a very subtle way. It creates such a beautiful gradient effect! With this yarn you don’t have to worry about weaving in ends or picking color combinations at all. One yarn cake has a length of 1000m / 1094 yds and a weight of 220g/7.94 oz. I didn’t need the yellow part and only used 2/3 of the cake. I’m saving the leftover yarn for another project later this year. For the white overlay I used Scheepjes Whirlette (because it’s the same yarn in just 1 solid color), but you can use any other white fingering weight yarn.

About this series of patterns

I was born with a (benign) tumor in my face. For more than 22 years my doctors did not know what it was exactly. In 2017 I did a second opinion and got diagnosed with an ultra rare condition. I immediately started searching for other people with this condition.

So far I have found about 20 people in the whole wide world. It’s amazing how many similarities we have and how much we look alike. I feel very grateful they came into my life.

Many of my upcoming patterns, including this crochet scarf, will be special designs inspired by my new ‘extended family’ who have made a huge impact on me.

Notes

– This pattern is written in US terminology

– I did not chain 3 to make the first stitch, but used a special technique which you can see in the video above. Feel free to use any method you prefer, such as chain 3 which counts as the first double crochet.

Row 1:
Chain 48 (45 + 3 turning chains), turn your work and make 45 double crochet stitches (45)

> or make 45 foundation double crochet stitches, turn your work

Row 2:
1 double crochet stitch in every stitch, turn your work (45)

Repeat row 2 till you’ve made 199 rows. You can also stop when you run out of yarn or till you think the scarf is long enough. You need an amount of rows that is a multiple of 11 + 1. For example 155, 166, 177, 188, 199, 210, 221 rows, etc.

Tutorial for the diamonds

– Every square in the graph below stands for 1 DC.

– Work 2 slip stitches in every DC: one in the middle of the stitch and one on top of the DC.

– Before you start, use the graph below and place your stitch markers on the highlighted stitches. This way you’ll know where to start and end.

– Try to keep a loose tension when making the slip stitches. If you notice you make tight slips stiches, try using a bigger hook.

Mistakes happen, don’t worry!
If you notice you don’t end where you should end (at the stitch marker..), don’t worry, it happened me a lot the first few times. You’ll get used to where to insert the hook after some practice. You can easily see where you started going wrong and pick it up from there.

    Ich lese deinen Blog schon eine Weile und muss dir jetzt mal schreiben, dass deine Tücher und Schals wirklich alle wunderschön sind! =)) Du hast echt tolle Ideen und ein jedes Tuch ist ein Unikat!
    Wenn ich mal eines nachhäkle, dann das gestreifte Dreieckstuch mit horizontalen und vertikalen Streifen, das finde ich am schönsten! =)

    Liebe Grüße aus Österreich!
