Simple Scarfie Shawl made with lionbrand scarfie yarn

About the design

After the big success of my other Scarfie patterns, I decided to continue working on different types of garments and accessories using this yarn. All patterns use the same yarn, same stitch and same simplicity for beginners. And the best thing: they all work up extremely fast!

This shawl has a crescent shape and is worked from side to side. We will start with increasing on one side of the shawl, followed by a few rows without increases, and finally decrease on that same side. All you need to know is how to make chains and double crochet stitches.

For this shawl I used Lionbrand Scarfie yarn. Scarfie is a soft wool blend yarn with unique self-striping ombré effect. It beautifully shades from one color to the next and works up fast. It’s perfect for making warm garments and accessoires.

    Hi guys, it’s Kyran here!
    I work as a professional an essay writer and have created this content with the intent of changing your life for the better. I started honing my writing skills in high school. I learned that my fellow students needed writing help—and they were willing to pay for it. The money was enough to help pay my tuition for my remaining semesters of college.
    Ever since high school, I have continued to work as an academic writer. I was hired by a writing service based in the United Kingdom. Since then, the essays that I have written have been sold around Europe and the United States.
    In my line of work, I have become familiar with hearing, “Kyran, can you help me meet my writing assignment deadline?” I know that I can provide this service.

    I too am plus size, and am very interested in Julie’s question. It would seem to make sense that you could add more rows to the center section to increase length. Has anybody out there tried this? I am going to attempt it, because I would love to make this graceful shawl. And, Wilma, your Granny does look like such a cutie -pie!

    This is a lovely pattern. I’m plus sized so I was wondering if there’s any reason why I couldn’t add more rows in the center section to make it longer?
