Stord Scarf - Free Crochet Pattern


Want a clean copy without ads and pictures ... Stord Scarf on Ravelry is available for a small price which includes written instructions, notes, stitch guide and a chart.






I've had this yarn in my bin for quite some time, just waiting for the perfect project. It's 100% wool and fingering weight that was hand dyed by Melanie of Baad Mom Yarns. Unfortunately, she doesn't offer this base anymore but there are some other lovely fingering weight yarns on her website.



Stord Scarf is an easy to memorize, two row pattern with a delicate flower edging created with puff stitches. Never created a puff stitch before ... no worries ... you can find my picture tutorial here.
