  1. You've done it again, Jennifer! I've been looking around for a new project and this one is perfect! I love how soft and airy it is. I want something for those days when I'm looking for more style than warmth.

    I also think the colors in this yarn would be perfect for the senior citizens at the retirement home that I'm thinking of making some for! They tend to run a little cold and they would feel so special in such cheerful colors!

    Thank you for sharing your gifts and talents with us. The scarf and your ability to teach so clearly are such a gift! Having it on video really helps those of us that get lost in the fine print of most instructions!

    I must admit, tho'...YOUR instructions are so easy, they make me feel like I am a pro. Of course, that only lasts until I read THEIR instructions. Haha!

  2. I'm wanting to use this pattern for a wrap and I always have to block my work. I'm wondering if once you block a piece and you wash it, does it stay blocked or do you have to redo it. BTW...this is a beautiful scarf. Thanks for sharing

    1. Hi,
      anytime you get a blocked item wet, you will have to reblock it. For example, if you get caught in the rain, or if you wash the item. Sorry to be the bearer of disappointing tidings :(

    1. Looks like the repeat unit is 6 ("skip 5 ch, then in the next chain work...").

      This scarf pattern has 4 of the (2 dc, ch 3, 2 dc) repeat units in it.

      So (6x4)+4 = 28 is how the starting chain was made. You should be able to start with any multiple of 6, plus 4.

  9. Hello i found your pattern on Pinterest and its so beautiful!! The yarn color is pretty so I went out to buy it in the color Dragonfly but honestly im not too happy with this yarn. Its very fuzzy and when I pull project apart because I made a mistake, it gets tangled up and tears. Is there a similar yarn that I can use instead of the Red Heart Unforgettable?

    1. Marcia to Anita Simpson. Give this a try. At the top left of your computer screen, you should see the name FILE. Click that. A drop down should list print option. Hope that helps.

    2. Maybe you could copy/paste into a new document?

    3. I just copy and paste the written instructions into a Word document and save that. Also right-click and save the image for reference.

  18. Is there any better way to download the pattern. My great aunt ended up with a virus on her computer and i am trying to download it for her and i don't want to download the same thing to mine.

  19. I just found this pattern.I would like to start on it today, but I have a question. In row 1 you say to continue with pattern until the last 4 chains. Then DC in last chain. What about the other 3?

    ReplyDelete
  20. I usually copy and paste my patterns that I want to keep. Then make print smaller/larger, pictures smaller/larger etc. I have been doing this for years as you only get what you want. Christine

  21. Hi. Your work is truly beautiful. Just wondering if you could please add the pattern multiples to your written pattern for the people ( such as myself) who would like to make these either wider or thinner

  22. I love this pattern! I bought Red Heart Unforgettable Dragonfly. Such a pretty color. The pattern is very easy, yet very delicate and beautiful. Mine also came out just shy of 80 inches. I'd love to post a pic of the colors and see what you think. Is there a way to do that?

    ReplyDelete
  23. Love this scarf. I just made it using Red Heart Unforgettable in Dragonfly. The colors are gorgeous. I used the entire skein of yarn and mine is about 80 inches long as well. I'd love to post a photo. Let me know if that is possible.
    Thanks for the lovely and easy pattern!

  24. I am a beginner and your pattern looked easy, so I bought the yarn in Stained Glass color. The yarn is very slippery, and I am having to go really slowly! However, by row 3 I got the hang of it and I love the colors!It is going to turn out nicely, I think.

  25. BEGA CROTCHETING THIS SCARF VERY SIMPLE AND QUITE PRETTY I USED A YARN I HAPPEED TO PICK UP THAT IS bernat yarn inspirations "Pop" yarn it is Blue blaze which has shades of teal blue, light blue, light purple, and lighter teals the only thing it is not changing color every row light the red heart, but still coming out beautiful. Also the first thing I thought of what a beautiful pattern for a bed. Thank you!

  26. I was wondering of u could tell me how I can finish off the end so it will be a straight edge. I want to turn this into an infinity scarf. This is a beautiful scarf! Thanks for the pattern.

    ReplyDelete
  27. I'm confused. If I just stopped at row 80. One end is the starting chain so it's straight and row 80 has the scalloped edge. This doesn't seem right. How do you make the last row straight when the previous row is scalloped.

    1. I would add one pattern row to the starting row when finished. It usually works well, however I haven't made this yet, so can't be sure in this case.
