5/14/10 Free Pattern Friday: Rococo Scarflette Crochet Pattern

Rococo Scarflette Crochet Pattern
Here’s another really cool temporarily free design for our Free Friday crochet pattern this time. This special scarf pattern will be a free downloadable pattern for a limited time of two weeks, so download it now.

The pattern calls for chunky yarn, but you know me, I had to do something different. I used…

Bernat Softee Baby Yarn
…two strands of Bernat Softee Baby yarn for my scarf, and then dropped one of the colors on each end to make the ruffles. I think some cotton yarn would really look good, too, and a lighter scarf is always nice to have around for those cool spring nights.

Of course, I had to put my own spin on the closure, so I thought about poking-a-hole-in some “Exclusively You” faux leather and making a flower out of it. I used one of my plastic lids and traced around it to make my circle; then, I just placed some dots evenly around the circle…

Punching Holes
…and punched holes in it.

Crocheting Around
Then, I crocheted around the circle.

My Rococo Scarf
I think my pin will be cool on the scarf and on other jackets or purses.

ICrochet Museum Cover
Remember to tell all your friends that this pattern is only available for a short time! I hope you have as much fun making the scarf as I did. This free scarf pattern is from a book called iCrochet: Museum Quality Hats-Scarves-Purses by Francine Toukou, so if you like this scarf, you might want to check out the book for some other really cool designs. Thank you, Francine, for allowing us to use your Rococo Scarflette pattern for our Free Pattern Friday.
