This week I’m back with another free crochet pattern: The Once in a Blue Moon Triangle Scarf. I have to confess: I have a bit of a weakness for self-striping yarns. It is so hard to resist a skein of yarn with a beautifully matched set of colours that allows me to be lazy with my colour changes. *drool* When I opened one of my Christmas gifts this year and found some Caron Chunky Cakes inside, I was VERY excited. I couldn’t wait to get my new squishy goodness on my hook.
I had been having a hard time tracking down a 12mm crochet hook but my husband found one and gave it to be for Christmas. It’s my first Clover Amore crochet hook so I was obviously going to use this hook as soon as possible to test it out. I had been looking for this hook to make a triangle scarf I’ve had in mind for a while. Now that I had my hook and a beautiful Caron Chunky Cake in Blue Moon, I was set to get started.
When I set out to design this pattern, I wanted to make a decently sized triangle scarf/shawl with a chunky yarn that only required 1 skein to complete. I also wanted to make my tassels from the same skein and for the pattern to be accessible for beginners. I am so pleased with the results!

FO and weave in ends.
Tassels: (make 3)
Wrap the yarn around a piece of cardboard 4” wide approximately 20 times. Tie the top of the tassel with another piece of yarn to secure it (ensuring that it is long enough to attach it to the scarf. I used an 8” piece). Cut one side of the yarn that’s wrapped around the cardboard and remove the yarn from the cardboard. Take another length of yarn and wrap it around the top of the tassel 8 to 10 times tightly. Tie a knot and bury the end inside the tassel. Trim the tassel ends evenly. Attach a tassel to each point of the scarf securely.
