I bought this yarn from Yarn Baby thinking it would make a perfect gift. The color way is Night Circus after a book of the same name published in 2012. The book sounds like an entertaining read, but my ability to “inhale” books as been greatly diminished since having two children within 2 years. It is much easier to pick up and put down whatever crochet project I’m working vs a book.
The pattern I’m using for scarf is a simple repeat called the Iris Stitch which is a modified shell.
I choose to do a repeat of seven shells, you can do as many or few as you would like simply adding 3 chains for each shell, plus 5 to square it up.
fhdc: Foundation half double crochet
sdc: standing double crochet
dc: double crochet
