Mixed-yarn 'Christensen' skinny scarf (brown colorway)

Lion Brand® Homespun® - Lion® Suede - Fancy Fur

GAUGE:

9 sts + 10 rows = 4 inches [10 cm] in single crochet through back loops. When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

A: Landscapes  279 Deep Sea
B: Homespun #364 Mexicana

Editor’s Note: When creating fringe using Homespun please note that because of the texture of the yarn the fringe will fray when cut. If you prefer a non-frayed look you can knot the ends, knit or crochet a fringe, or use hairspray or fray check.

Mixed-yarn 'Christensen' skinny scarf (brown colorway) Reviewed by Lorinda Dods on 2011-09-20 *****
I LOVE this pattern! I've done it a variety of ways, using many different types of yarn. One of my favorites was using an alpaca blend, a fun fur and a thin suede. I've made it narrow, I've made it wide. I've many it multi-colored, I've made it mono-chromatic. I've followed the pattern and I've made up my own using 2 or more types of yarns. It's fun to introduce this pattern to beginner crocheters. They look at it and think it's beyond them. Once I explain it's only single crochet, their minds are opened to a whole new world of possibilities. It's also a fantastic way to use up bits and pieces of leftover yarn!! :o)
