With the weather changing here in NE Ohio I love to see the leaves turning colors and turning towards the middle. This is how I came up with the design of this crochet pattern. The Turning Leaves Scarf shows the leaves turning colors and shows them turning towards the middle.
My guys, my hubby and my son and my son’s dog Freyja look great modeling the Turning Leaves Scarf for me. I even got my son’s dog Freyja modeling the Turning Leaves Scarf. lol As you can see this is a great Unisex scarf.
In the Turning Leaves Scarf crochet pattern I used part of the flower making technique that was originally used in my Mae’s Flowers and my Mae’s Flower Garden Afghan. I did a CAL in May sharing my Mae’s Flower Garden Afghan crochet patterns. You can find out the story behind this design and find the free pattern for the flowers and afghan on my website. You can find the premium version of the Mae’s Flowers Crochet Pattern at my Ravelry Store.
Here is a little video I put together showing what goods sports they all are even when they are being silly. lol
I hope you find some awesome crochet patterns to use up the scrap yarn you have stashed away, wondering what you were going to do with. lol
As you can see by the pictures of my fabulous testers’ version, the design creates a nice textured look due to the turning of the leaves.
Thank you Beth Bjerklie, Suzanne Lively Boren, Frances Gonzales, Liz Hasler, and Karen Reinhart for your lovely versions and your great feedback!
