Crochet lovers, pay attention: here’s my still-favorite, a-la-Anthropologie, crochet scarf/wrap pattern. Now in the color of love: scarlet red! Wow. Even more stunning.

 

Do you remember that I introduced you to this amazingly gorgeous, show-stealing, head-turning and easy to make crochet rose flower scarf …. years ago?  If my enthusiasm at that time did not convince you to go make this scarf, well maybe the picture below will make you get our your crochet needles and order the yarn! 

You see, even in a completely different color and with a different yarn, both look extremely stunning.

Alpine Wool

Scarlet Red Crochet Scarf with Roses

The red scarf uses Lion Brand Yarn 822-224C Alpine Wool Yarn. Look for the color ‘Chilli’.

As you’ll need 9 skeins of 85g of this 100% alpine wool yarn, at $10/skein, this scarf will be a luxury….

Pure Wool

Do you remember this gorgeous crochet scarf with flowers ??


This neutral-colored scarf uses Fishermen’s Wool Yarn. You’ll need just 3 skeins of this 100% wool yarn as each skein is 227g.  At $7/skein, this is the way to go if you wish for 100% pure wool.

For about 1/5th of the price (for same weight yarn), try this 20/80 wool/acrylics blend.Gorgeous red color!

Or, try this one: Lion Brand Wool-Ease Chunky Yarn (099) Fisherman By The Each, in neutral color. 227 g per skein, need 5 skeins.

Comments

  1. Now that it is one fancy scarf.

  2. I’m just wondering how to split the yarn between the scarf and the leaves/flowers? I want to do the scarf in one color and the leaves/flowers in another color? Do you know if it’s about an even split? Maybe 2-1/2 to 3 skeins of each color? Thanks, in advance, for the help! (P.S. I’m doing the Wool-Ease Chunky yarn pattern.)

    Hi Jennifer.

    I am thinking that you will need indeed about as much for the flowers as for the lace of the scarf. And perhaps a bit more for the flowers and leaves than the lace. I am always amazed with how much yarn flowers eat up… So, I’d go for at least half-half.

    However, that said…., personally I think I’d prefer 3 colors, instead of 2, whereby the leaves are a somewhat different color than the flowers. You know, harmonious colors: such as peach, pink and cream; or chocolate, caramel and cream; or black, navy and aqua. That sort of thing. What do you think?

    Hope this helps you,
    Kind regards, Rose

  4. Hi,

    Thank you for the pattern! I am allergic to even the tiniest amount of even the finest wool, so I was wondering if you though it possible to make this pattern out of anything else? I like Michael’s Loops and Threads Charisma yarn, it’s soft enough not to itch me too much (I also get itchy from some acrylic. :( (()

  5. as per my response by email. consider bamboo – blends
