For this week I have another pattern from Columbia-Minerva's Teach Yourself to Crochet from 1972. This is perfect for a beginner, not so great for the heat we're expected to get in Minnesota this coming week.
This is just a long scarf that is folded in half with 8 inches sewn by the fold to make the hood. It uses worsted weight yarn and since I liked the color combination in the photo I tried to replicate that with yarn I had. I used vintage Columbia Minerva Performer in Brown, some Red Heart Super Saver in Buff and an unknown yarn in Magenta.
This a one row repeat that goes; sc, chain 2 across and repeats with the next row having the sc in the chain 2 space. This is really easy and works up very quickly with the I hook. I didn’t think the fringe was necessary and I really hate making fringe so I skipped that.
This one fit and it was super easy and fun. This gets a 5 out of 5 stars!
I'm from Minnesota and have been crocheting since 2003. I inherited a box full of Workbasket Magazines from my mother-in-law and became obsessed with the vintage patterns.
