Friendship Bracelet Scarf

By Jessika Zontini

 

 

 

The Friendship Bracelet Scarf is based on a particular design of friendship bracelets that I have always loved.  The way each color blooms out from the center and then works to the outside has always been a fascinating pattern to me.   My thought was that being based on a friendship bracelet design, you could create one for yourself and one for a friend!  An upgrade on the friendship bracelet!  This was designed to be made with Blue Sky Fibers' newest yarn, Woolstok Light.  With one Woolstok Light Big Bundle you have enough yarn to make two scarves.  

 

MATERIALS

 

l Big Bundle of Blue Sky Fibers Woolstok Light (includes 1 skein each of all 14 colors)   fingering weight single ply wool.  The Big Bundle will give you plenty to make 2 friendship scarves- one for yourself and one for a friend!  Each scarf requires approximately 17g of each of the 14 colors.

l Crochet hook size E/4 3.5mm - I love the Knitter's Pride Dreamz crochet hooks.  They have a nice pointy tip for getting into your stitches easily!

l Tapestry needle for finishing

 

ABBREVIATIONS

 

Sl st - slip stitch

Ch - chain
