Don’t hesitate to visit me on Facebook or send me an e-mail if you have any pattern specific or crochet related questions!  The Loungers are fabulously helpful even if I may not have all the answers ♥ With that said, don’t forget to check your gauge and adjust hook sizes until you find one to match the stated gauge especially on fitted items!

Materials

  • 300-350yds Worsted Weight Yarn sample in Red Heart Boutique Unforgettable
    The Tranquil Waves Slouch and Arm Warmers in Teen to Adult (s) can be made with 2 skeins of Red Heart Boutique Unforgettable
  • H-8 (5mm), I-9 (5.5mm), J-10 (6.0mm) or Hook Size to Obtain Gauge
  • Tapestry Needle
  • Scissors/Yarn Cutter

Sizing

Hook & FO Sizing
~8″ from Crown to RSC Brim 18.5″ diameter + stretch

Gauge

Pattern stitches are 2 rounds per inch — adjust hook size to obtain gauge

Dc height is 0.5″ or 1.27cm

If your gauge is not matching the above within the first 2 to 3 rounds, it’s time to adjust – although it is a must on crochet hats, it is less crucial on arm warmers.  This pattern does have a tapered look from decreasing at the Lower Forearm section, so if your Upper Forearm stitching is running long, you may need to start the decrease sooner.  As always, it is easier to follow a gauge than to end up with a piece that is not the desirable size on a fitted item.

If your stitching is resulting in a longer round height, you need to adjust your golden loop or drop down in hook size and use the hook that obtains gauge.

Golden Loop - after inserting your hook into an indicated stitch, the Golden Loop is the loop you yarn over and draw up.  The height of your row/round depends on how high you draw up the Golden Loop.  This matters greatly in gauge matching if you are needing to follow hook size and or have already dropped down in hook size and cannot obtain gauge.

Stitches

Yarn over (yo) – wrap yarn over hook

Chain (ch) – yo, pull through loop on hook

Slip Stitch (slst) - insert hook in indicated stitch, yo draw through stitch and loop on hook

Single crochet (sc) - insert hook in indicated stitch, yo draw up a loop, yo draw through 2

Double Crochet (dc) – yo, insert hook in indicated st (stitch), yo draw up a loop (3 loops on hook), yo draw through 2 loops, yo draw through 2 loops (1 loop on hook)

Front Post Double Crochet (FPdc) - yo, insert hook from front to back to front from the right side around to the left side of the indicated post (Lefties do the opposite from left to right), yo draw up a loop, , yo draw through 2 loops, yo draw through 2

Standing Double Crochet (standing dc)-  This stitch replaces the ch3 start so you have a cleaner look on your piece (in fact, the starting stitch will almost be undetectable)

Special Stitches

9tr-Fan  - 9tr in indicated stitch

Tranquil Waves Toddler Sun Hat on Tree^3 | The Crochet Lounge™ Free Crochet Pattern

Tranquil Waves Toddler Sun Hat (Cloche) 

Once in a great while, I see or create a stitch pattern and the hook-addict comes out to play.  Everything from there on that I can think of and dream up is in that particular stitch – take the entire free crochet pattern set in Mariposas stitch for example: Mariposas Beanie (Bottom-Up) featuring ribbed brim, Mariposas Boot Cuffs, Mariposas y Angeles Beanie (Top-Down) featuring basket weave brim, Mariposas Wrist Cuffs, Mariposas Bolero (yet to be revealed), Mariposas Throw (in final development stage) as an example.

The Tranquil Waves is no exception.  This time, after making the Tranquil Waves Underarm Purse, the series has barely lifted off.  This toddler cloche-like sun hat will be the first in a toddler set of legwarmers and more in DK (Light Worsted Weight #3)! My lounge friends with mostly dk weight yarn, you are in for a treat :)

New addition: Tranquil Waves Teen-Adult (s) Arm Warmer <3

Materials

Sizing

Hook & FO Sizing
~8″ from Crown to RSC Brim 18.5″ diameter + stretch
Fits 12-24mo toddler

Gauge

2” (5.08cm) after first 2 rounds – adjust hook size to obtain gauge

Dc height is 0.5″ or 1.27cm

If your gauge is not matching the above within the first 2 to 3 rounds, it’s time to adjust – although mentioned before in the Pineapple Lace Sunhat that it is crucial in hat-making that your gauge matches in the increase rounds or your hat will end up being way too big or way too small, it is LESS critical on a hat made with sock yarn or highly stretchable material vs. 100% cotton.

If your stitching is resulting in a longer round height, you need to adjust your golden loop or drop down in hook size and use the hook that obtains gauge.

Golden Loop - after inserting your hook into an indicated stitch, the Golden Loop is the loop you yarn over and draw up.  The height of your row/round depends on how high you draw up the Golden Loop.  This matters greatly in gauge matching if you are needing to follow hook size and or have already dropped down in hook size and cannot obtain gauge.

~ Tranquil Waves Underarm Purse ~

Free Crochet Pattern

When I think of the Spring near the ocean, I imagine the calm, white, sandy beach with tranquil waves at sunset.  While I am not much of a purse user, I do so love yarn and book totes that fit an occasional diaper or two.  This free crochet pattern series with the Tranquil Waves stitch will include your usual accessories suspects, and then some.  For now, you can enjoy this fantastic purse while honing in on your crochet stitches/tricks.

Want to add a set of things in this stitch?  Check out Tranquil Waves Toddler Cloche-Like Sun Hat & Tranquil Waves Arm Warmer – Teen – Adult (s), there’s more in this series, so don’t miss it :) Visit again soon.

Tranquil Waves Underarm Purse | The Crochet Lounge™ Free Crochet Purse Pattern

Add this Pattern to Your Ravelry Queue

Following the gauge, the purse will turn out to be about 9.5″ Square.  You are welcome to line it with fabric or use store purchased handles.  A few options will be presented to you when it comes time :)

I’ve seen a lot of crochet purses/handbags, but have stayed away from making my own.  When I encountered this stitch pattern, it called my name (ask other designers, they know what I’m talking about – not to deter from the fact that we’re all just a tad bit crazy);  I knew it was a purse and much much more.  A week later, this Mystery Crochet Along was born and the purse sits pretty before you.

~♥ Eternal Love Hugs & Kisses
Baby – Toddler Princess Tutu X♥X♥ ♥~

The Eternal Love Hugs & Kisses patterns are really taking a shape of their own!  The free crochet pattern series includes newborn-adult sized headband  and the Eternal Love Hugs & Kisses Infinity Scarf so far; they were so fun to make I had to have a set for myself! My Musical daughter will soon make her own set after seeing her mom and baby sister sporting the hearts.  Isn’t that exciting?Hugs & Kisses to you X♥X♥

Eternal Love Hugs & Kisses Newborn-Toddler Princess Tutu -- Free Crochet Pattern | The Crochet Lounge™

Add this Pattern to Your Ravelry Queue

Seeing the cutest headband on Tree^3, I couldn’t leave it as the only pattern in the series.  She is so stinkin’ cute I had to have a bottom to match.  Although I had veered away from making tutu items, this one sealed the deal.  If you have never worked with tulle or made a tutu, not to worry, your hook will help you through it all!

Materials

    • Small amount of Worsted Weight yarn – I have used Red Heart with Love in the photos shown.
    • 6″ wide tulle rolls (single or multiple colors) 30-60yds depending on length, size, and fluffiness desired
      <Note: In the photo, I used roughly 50 yards of 2 colors combined hooking in the Fdc where round 1 is FPhdc only leaving all connected to BPhdc empty>
    • H-8 (5mm), I-9 (5.5mm), J-10 (6mm) Hook (whatever it takes to obtain gauge)
    • Stitch Marker
    • Tapestry Needle
    • Scissors

Sizing:

Hook & FO Sizing – this goes with gauge — it is very important to check gauge on a fitted item!

~17″+/43cm circumference newborn size- fsc 60
~18″+/45cm  circumference 0-3mo infant size - fsc 64
~19″+/45.5cm  circumference 3-9mo infant size - fsc 68
~20″+/50cm circumference 12-18mo – fsc 72
~21″+/53cm circumference 24mo – fsc 76

<Note: Since post stitches make the pattern stretchy, and the puff hearts allow stretch as well, with each sizing, you can actually stretch it enough to fit 1.5-2″ up, which means you can get a lot of wear out of a single sizing. ex. My 20mo fits in ~18″+ stretched written w/o stretch for 0-3mo>

Stitches (sts)& Abbreviations

Chain (ch) – yo, pull through loop on hook

Take your rolls of tulle, unroll and measure the baby’s waist to ankle area or however long you desire the tutu to be, then double the length before you cut.  Measure out and cut the rest of the tulle you think you’ll need (I used about 50yards for my 20mo’s tutu).  Take 2 strips of the tulle and fold it in half, insert your hook from one side of an FDC to the other that has Round1 FPhdc (they will be raised compared to the BPhdc), put the center of the tulle over the hook and draw the loop through the post, put down your hook, reach through the loop of tulle and pull the tulle tail through to secure it around the post.  Go all the way around, and if you would like more fluff, you can also attach tulle from the inside of the tutu hugs & kisses ring of the tutu using the BPhdc FDC posts.

~♥ Eternal Love Hugs & Kisses Infinity Scarf X♥X♥ ♥~

Eternal Love Hugs & Kisses Infinity Scarf -- Free Crochet Pattern | The Crochet Lounge™After creating the infinity scarf MCAL, I doubled back to make the Eternal Love Headband free crochet pattern in my size and made it with matching border color to my scarf. I simply LOVE it, and now my Music child also wants a set :)  She managed to love just the wrist warmers and held off when her little sister had a headband and matching Eternal Love Hugs & Kisses Newborn-Toddler Princess Tutu made, but now she wants one of EVERYTHING! Ha.  Isn’t it great we can teach the wee ones to hook along side us? :D

I am guessing that the wrist warmers with optional ruffles will be published next along with the tutus!  Come join us and share your creations with The Crochet Lounge™ fans on

Eternal Love Hugs & Kisses Infinity Scarf Round 3 Demystified -- Free Crochet Pattern | The Crochet Lounge™

What in the world does Round 3 stitch placement mean?!? To clarify with Cathy S.’s photo, since she used 3 different colors off the bat, you can really see the stitching.
x = sc
o = ch1
T with slash = dc
so you are sc into the middle of the heart, ch1, dc into the space right before the next heart, ch1, dc into the very first space you skipped from the heart you started at, ch1, sc into the center of the next puff heart.
The red arrows here indicate skipped dc of round 1. While pattern calls for the dc round to be the same color as the border, it really is up to individual taste on color choices :)
If you have other questions, please feel free to send your close up photos and questions. We can explore them together!

After the Mariposas Boot Cuffs pattern debut, I knew there was going to be a matching Mariposas Beanie, wrist cuffs, and some form of neck wear to come in a short time-frame, and I was right.  I prefer to be inspired to hook by the hooks and yarn vs. under pressure – because I strongly believe that the energy of a person while creating ANYTHING will go into their final product whether it be their designs, their finished object, etc. and will be felt by others who are on the receiving end.

The force is strong with this stitch pattern ;)  Although the bolero has yet to make its way through the testing stages, its companions are moving along quickly.  Wrist cuffs have been on my list to ‘tackle’ since last year and when I finally was inspired to create these, I fell in love with the end product before they were hooked.

I was truly inspired when I went to Ravelry today and saw a note on Sandi76′s Mariposas Beanie (♥) that she’d only been crocheting FOR A MONTH.  She pattern tested the Mariposas Beanie and her stitching was impeccable.  If she can pattern test the written pattern, you can make this set of wrist cuffs/boot cuffs/beanie!

GaugeMariposas Beanie & Wrist Cuffs Set - Free Crochet Patterns | The Crochet Lounge™

10 Stitches & 7 Rounds of ribbing in FPhdc, BPhdc + fsc = 2 inches
Height of dc – 5/8″ or 1.5875cm
Height of tr – 1″ or 2.54cm
<Note: It is okay to have a longer golden loop, which creates a higher stitch, but it will also make your cuff longer, so pay attention!>

Measurements

Cuff ribbing 6″ circumference by 2″ height – will stretch to average wrist size (If this feels snug for you, please feel free to up-size the hook you are using for the ribbing portion!  Same goes if you need a smaller size ribbing section, downsize the hook for that portion of the pattern.)

Total height from base of fsc to tip of picot on top of 9tr-Fan is 4.75″ or 12.065cm

Golden Loop - after inserting your hook into an indicated stitch, the Golden Loop is the loop you yarn over and draw up.  The height of your row/round depends on how high you draw up the Golden Loop.  This matters greatly in gauge matching if you are needing to follow hook size and or have already dropped down in hook size and cannot obtain gauge.

Pattern

Make a second because you may want a matching cuff! ;)  You can wear them right side out and out of a jacket sleeve, or turn them inside out, so you can fold it up over a sweater or blouse and still have the right side of the stitches showing for a great look. ♥

Chunky Jacob's Ladder Convertible Cowl & Scarf - Free Crochet Pattern | The Crochet Lounge™

Chunky Jacob’s Ladder Convertible Cowl & Scarf

I’ve always been enamored with the looks of the crochet Jacob’s Ladder stitch.  You can find some of my Jacob’s Ladder free pattern collection on this Pinterest Board.  Short of Clare (Bobwilson123)’s cap tutorial and the beret, I simply don’t have the time to hook up a throw/afghan sized project.  It dawned on me a few weeks ago that I simply must make a cowl or a scarf that ladders.

As if that wasn’t enough, my dream topped it off with the idea of a convertible cowl & scarf — now we were talking.  While color changing in a Jacob’s Ladder made the stitching pop, I also wanted to try it as a single colored scarf, and a chunky one at that!  This Chunky Jacob’s Ladder Convertible Cowl & Scarf pattern was born.  The question remained whether it would be a ladders only or also a 2 way scarf.

Stringy and ladders convertible cowls and scarves OH MY!

Needless to say, you’ll be presented with 2 options to finish the scarf and many more if you decide to make it with color change (it is harder with a large hook and double strands, so you may want to take that into consideration before you jump into color changing.

Slip Stitch (slst) - insert hook in indicated stitch, yo draw through stitch as well as the loop on hook

Double Crochet (dc) – yo, insert hook in indicated st (stitch), yo draw up a loop (3 loops on hook), yo draw through 2 loops, yo draw through 2 loops (1 loop on hook)

Chainless Starting Double Crochet (Standing dc) – video by Mooglyblog You can replace all ch3 starts of each round with the Standing dc to make the scarf look pretty and seamless!

 

Gauge

  • 1 stitches and 1.5 rows = 1 inch

Pattern

The Entire Pattern is worked with DOUBLE STRANDS!

Round 1:
Ch 60, slst join to the first chain, make sure you do not twist the chain while joining.

Round 2:
Ch3, dc in next ch, ch10, skp 10 ch,
*dc in next 2 ch, ch10,
Rpt from *, slst join to top of beginning ch3

<Note: You can use a standing double crochet at the beginning of each round and you won’t be able to tell where the start is!>

Round 3:  Ch3, dc in next dc, ch10, skp next ch10 space, *dc in next 2 dc, ch10, rpt from *, slst join to top of beginning ch3

Row 4-25 (or 35): Repeat Round 3

Finish off if you want a convertible chain and dc cowl with option of changing it to a Jacob’s Ladder Scarf/Jacob’s Ladder Cowl using a Large Brooch to close off / hold the 5 Jacob’s Ladder loops in place or create a chain or I-Cord as instructed below to do the same.

At 25 rounds, you can see the length of the scarf should you choose to wear it as a scarf and see if you like it.  With or without the ladder strung, the scarf is about the same length; others prefer a longer scarf at 35 rounds (shown in photos hanging from the tree branch and worn by my daughter.

Chain or I-Cord to hold the 5 Jacobs Ladder Loops:

You can either make a 120 chain cord to finish off or an I-Cord and string loosely through the 5 Jacobs Ladder

If you would like a pure Jacob’s Ladder Cowl/Scarf, continue with Ladder Only Option:

Ladder Only Option: This will create a permanent Jacob’s Ladder Scarf/Jacob’s Ladder CowlChunky Jacob's Ladder Convertible Cowl & Scarf Unstrung - Free Crochet Pattern Collage | The Crochet Lounge™

String up the Ladder by taking a ch10 spc of foundation chain, twisting it to form a loop then insert your hook into the loop, *yo with the next ch10 one round up, draw through the loop, rpt from * until you get to the top – use a safety pin or stitch marker to hold the loop in place and create the ladder in the other 4 ch10 sections.

Once you are ready to move forward, insert your hook back into the loop where you slst joined round 25

Round 26:
Ch3, dc in next dc, ch4, remove the place holder of the Jacob’s ladder loop, slst into the ladder loop to secure, ch4,
*dc in next 2 dcs, ch4, remove the place holder of the Jacob’s ladder loop, slst inot the ladder loop to secure, ch4,
Rpt from *,
Slst to beginning ch3, cut a 12″ tail, weave in ends (you can split the 2 strands and weave in different directions to secure, or split the yarn if you are using chunky weight).

How to wear your Chunky Jacob’s Ladder Scarf/Cowl:

Without the ladder strung:

1) You can wear it as a loopy scarf
2) You can put your arm through the center of the long tube and slip it over your head as a cowl

With Jacob’s Ladder:

1) You can wear it as a Jacob’s Ladder scarf (other photos in the left collage frame)
2) You can put your arm through the center of the long tube and slip it over your head as a Jacob’s Ladder Cowl (large photo in the right of the collage)

 

What’s your favorite way of wearing this project?  I would love to see photos!

Mariposas Boot Cuffs - Free Crochet Pattern | The Crochet Lounge™

Mariposas Boot Cuffs – Free Crochet Pattern

Do you crochet a project when it calls your name?  It’s that way for me.  I fell in love with crochet boot cuffs 2-3 years back, however, I’ve never picked up my hooks to make a pair because non of them truly called my name.  A few months back, I created the Mariposas Bolero pattern (yet to be revealed at the time of posting the crochet boot cuffs pattern), and I KNEW they were going to be much more than just a bolero pattern.  The rest was history :)

Since I can’t just leave you to crochet boot cuffs with nothing to match, you can be sure to see pattern testing for the matching infinity scarf up and coming; perhaps even a cute holey beanie that you’d have to line to wear in cold weather, but might be just right for decorative purposes.  For now, a good pattern to pair this set of boot cuffs with is the Chunky Bricks & Bobbles Cowl that makes a bold statement whether it is worn as an infinity scarf or over your head as a cowl!

So many wonderful Loungers stepped up to be a pattern tester for this set of crochet boot cuffs – and they will soon be announced and linked.  Meanwhile, be sure to check out the grand Mariposas Boot Cuffs pin that features quite a few of you lovely ladies’ handiwork.  You may even want to tell your friends/family to help repin it!  There are more pins to come as well ;)

This pattern is short, simple, and SWEET, so grab your hook and yarn & get started!

Butterfly Stitch (BFS) - insert hook in indicated stitch, yo draw up a loop, yo draw through 1 loop, insert hook in next stitch, yo draw up a loop, yo draw through 2, yo draw through 2, ch1

*Note:  When doing stacked BFS or BFS in the round, the first stitch goes into the ‘right wing’ of the butterfly pattern created in the row/round below and the ‘next stitch’ indicates the ‘left wing’ of the butterfly, so you are always working into the wings.  You can see a video tutorial by Meladora’s Creations on YouTube as she created the BFS.  I end and start the rounds different, so pay close attention to the written instructions :)

Starting BFS - insert hook in same stitch as the slst, yo draw up a loop, yo draw through 1 loop, insert hook in next stitch, yo draw up a loop, yo draw through 2, yo draw through 2, ch1

Ending BFS - after completing the last BFS including the ch1, simply slip stitch into the ch1 space that started the round, then ch1 to start the new round

Fsc 100 (or ch 100, join with slst, ch1, sc in each ch around), make sure you do not twist the yarn, join with slst.*
*Note: when joining fsc in a circle, you will need to sew the beginning yarn tail to the bottom of the last fsc stitch to join as well as joining by slst at the top (top is the sc stitch, bottom is the foundation chain portion of fsc)

Row 1: Starting BFS, BFS around in the fsc stitches (2 fsc completes one BFS), when you get to the end, Ending BFS

moogly for Women – The Hooker with the Look

TCL_mooglyforWomen1F

In order to keep this succinct as possible, I will eliminate repeating the photos in the link-up and will list the photos a) by photo size, then b) left column and then right column.

1)   Artfully Simple Infinity Scarf (ASIS) – This is one of the most sought out simple scarf patterns since its debut because it is just that elegant a look and just that simple to make!  If this is the first time you’ve seen it or if it has been on your WIP list, time to bump it up a notch.  Run!

2)   Sunset Shawlette – The Sunset Shawlette features the use of fingering weight yarn and a trapezoid shape for ease of wrapping purposes.  It is light and airy and deserves a spot on your WIP list.

 3)  Summer Lace Cowl – It’s summery and lacy.  What more can you ask for to show off your hooking skills in the hot summer months of the year?

4) Winter Sunrise Scarf – It looks just like the sunrise and my brain says sunnyside up eggs :D  This is a refreshing scarf to have for the fall and winter or even cooler nights year round!  It is simply a beauty.

5) Diamond Crochet Cowl – Have you ever seen or made hats that have the same look as this cowl? (e.g. Diamond Ridges hat or the Lattice hat – both can be found on ravelry)  Even if you haven’t, after making this cowl, you MAY just want to make a hat to go along with it. mmmm. who can resist a set of anything?

6) Autumn Sunset Infinity Scarf – It’s hip, it’s wavy, even the diagram to the right on how to join the blocks together is flowing with waves.  Can you see it?  This is a good stand alone block and is a great textured baby blanket pattern.

How To Utilize The Crochet Lounge Pinterst Pins to Their Fullest Potential

The Crochet Lounge on Pinterest

A “How To” Guide

With the recently added Of the Month (OTM) Pinboards at The Crochet Lounge Pinterest Boards, I am seeing some questions from fellow Loungers and want to help YOU make the most out of repinning the Crochet Lounge Pins.

When it comes to Pinterest, we’ve all been frustrated by pin-boards and pretty pins that lead nowhere when we are looking for a pattern vs. pattern inspiration.

The Solution – Pinterest How To Guide for TCL Pins

The Crochet Lounge created Pins with hashtag #TheCrochetLounge are sensational photos pinned with details of the Pattern Link.  They will also state “Free Pattern” or “Paid Pattern” before the Pattern Link.

Pins are made to send you to the source of the photo.  In order to bring you the best quality and colored photo pins to show off what a pattern is capable of, I have pinned photos that may not be the source of the pattern and then gave you the link to the pattern in the description.

How To Utilize The Crochet Lounge Pinterst Pins to Their Fullest Potential

How to Use The Crochet Lounge Pinterest Pins to their fullest potential

Although Pinterst may not show you the full pattern link within the description, it is a bold font and is made clickable.  So, when you re-pin from The Crochet Lounge pinboards, and it has the #TheCrochetLounge hashtag, you know you are getting information to the source of the pattern ♥

If you see #TheCrochetLounge hashtag along with #idea tag then you know it’s just an idea and does not link to a pattern, merely to where the photo was found.

Lounge Raspberry Truffle Ruffle Scarf Trio Photos

Holiday Lounge Raspberry Truffle Ruffle Scarf

Have you been dreaming and looking for a lush free crochet ruffle scarf pattern?  As soon as I figured out the make up of a ruffle scarf, I couldn’t follow a given written pattern because I knew how I wanted my scarf and while they were close, they did not achieve the fluffy ruffly look in my mind.

Nothing sounds more delicious than a scrumptious Raspberry Truffle, so  I set out to make this ruffle scarf the holiday special for moi and it makes for a delightful gift as a finished scarf or as a simple pattern with yarn and hook for a crochet virgin.

Lounge Raspberry Truffle Ruffle Scarf Trio Photos

Materials:

TLC Amoré 3907 Red Velvet (80% acrylic, 20% nylon) or worsted weight yarn of choice*
Weight: 170g or 6 oz skein Length: ~306m or ~335 yds
Hook Size:  5.0mm or US H/8

Stitches:

Chain (ch) –  yo (yarn over), pull through loop on hook

Double Crochet (dc)
– yo, insert hook in indicated st (stitch), yo draw up a loop (3 loops on hook), yo draw through 2 loops, yo draw through 2 loops (1 loop on hook)

 

Pattern:

Ch 200
Row 1:  Ch3 (counts as first dc here and throughout) turn, dc in in 4th ch from hook, 2dc in each remaining st across (400dcs)

Row 2:  Ch3 turn, dc in turning space, 1dc in next st, *2dc in next stitch, 1dc in next stitch rep from * until end (600dcs)

Row 3:  Ch3 turn, dc in turning space, 1dc in next 2 stitches, *2dc in next stitch, 1dc in next 2 stitches rep from * until end (800dcs)

Row 4:  Repeat Row 3 (1065dcs)
Weave in Ends ♥

*Note: depending on your hooking tension, you may need more than one skein of yarn – you can even end this ruffle scarf when your yarn supply ends and it would still look good!
