Crochet the Icicles Scarf with Textured Stitches
If you have been reading my blog for a while, you know I have always been rather obsessed with triangular scarves. There are a lot of different ways to incorporate triangular edges into scarves (see: here, here, and here….have I missed any?!) and it is such a simple way to elevate a basic scarf into a modern piece.
The Icicles Scarf uses some simple stitches to create some visual texture while highlighting the ombre fade of Lion Brand Scarfie yarn that we all know and love. And then you have the options to add fringe, tassels or pom poms - I can’t wait to see what you decide!
