I am so excited to announce the next CAL that will begin on November 1st (that’s a Wednesday), is the Art ‘n Soul Scrappy Scarf! Many of you have left me sweet comments about how it has taken your creativity to new levels, or re-sparked your love of crochet. I am thrilled by these comments because it means I’m accomplishing my goal to provide inspiration, and joy through my patterns. Hopefully this crochet-a-long will be just the refreshing experience you need as we make that final crafting push into the Holiday season. I already announced the materials list in a recent Facebook Live event (yes, I’m always this enthusiastic), but I know it’s often helpful to have a list you can see, so here is an over-view of the materials you’ll need to have on hand. These are only a suggestion though, because this scarf is meant to draw out your creativity, and there is no wrong way to be creative.
The scarf pattern can already be accessed here. This CAL is so I can provide extra insights and images as we work on this together. I will also go live to demonstrate certain techniques, or share additional tips.

yarn needle with a large eye for weaving yarn through scarf
100-125 yards #3 light weight yarn (I used a maroon yarn that may have been re-purposed from a sweater. It looks like a cotton-acrylic blend)
50 yards #5 chunky yarn (I used Lion Brand Homespun in “Fiesta”). Note: You can choose to go with one colorway, or use multiple chunky or worsted weight yarns–the more you have woven through, the more luxurious and unique your scarf will look.
Additional suggested yarns:
–Fun fur/Foxy (I used Red Heart Foxy in “Aquarium”. I believe this line is discontinued, but you may find some on etsy or eBay)
-A different #5 chunky yarn (I used Yarn Bee Tender Touch in “Amber”) Note: Again, this is only a suggestion, you can use any kind of yarn, chunky, worsted, dk, and as much of it as will fit through the spaces.
-A fun speckled, metallic strand, or otherwise interesting worsted weight yarn (I used an acrylic, purple fleck yarn, again, no label)
-Leftover bits of ribbon, lace, or fabric scraps if you have those laying around
Small amount of worsted weight yarn in up to 4 colors of your choice
small amount of crochet thread in a complimenting or contrasting color for the center of flower #1
ch = chain
sl st = slip stitch
sc = single crochet
hdc = half double crochet
dc = double crochet
2 dc cluster
Granule Stitch (also known as Picot Single Crochet): Insert hook, yo, pull up a loop, *yo, draw through 1 loop* 3 times to make a ch 3, then yo, and draw through both loops on the hook.
8 ft long, including fringe, by 5″ wide
Gauge is not extremely important
If you used a heavier yarn to begin with, you could turn this into a belt
This pattern can easily be made longer or shorter to fit your needs
Your scarf will be unique to your own yarn collection, and that’s what makes this pattern so special!
I’ll see you back here on the 1st for the CAL!
