My Crochet: Treble Crochet Scarf

On Wednesdays I show of some of the crochet work that I’ve done in the past. This is a super simple scarf that I made awhile back. It’s just a rectangle of repeating triple crochet with nothing fancy added anywhere. Ah, but there’s a story behind this scarf.

This scarf was the first scarf that I made with a really nice yarn. This was back when I first started crocheting and didn’t realize the importance of noting exactly what yarn I was using so I don’t know exactly but it’s a super soft angora that I really liked.

The thing is, I also didn’t know at this time that if a skein or hank isn’t wrapped into a ball, it’s going to tangle. I learned from trial and error. I started crocheting the scarf without winding it into a ball. I ended up with a HUGE mess of tangles. I loved this yarn way too much to just let it remain a mass of knots. So I spent days (literally, hours on end, returning day after day) to fully untangle the yarn and turn it into a ball. It took far longer to work out the knots than to actually crochet the scarf. Oh but it is such a lovely scarf!

  1. The scarf is lovely. With a beautiful yarn like that, a straightforward pattern is just right.

    • Thanks – I often enjoy working most in a straightforward pattern, repeating either a half double stitch or a triple crochet stitch.

  2. When I first saw the title on your post, I thought it said “Terrible Crochet Scarf” and I was ready to say that it wasn’t terrible at all and looked lovely. :) Well, even without my silly misreading, it’s still true – nice job!

    • LOL – I actually am working on a series of crochet stories and I’m thinking that something about the terrible treble would be a great story!

  3. Oh, the dreaded Untangling. I have some yarn that’s waiting for me to have the patience to untangle it…

    But this scarf was definitely worth the untangling effort, I love the way the variegated-ness of the yarn shows up, and the treble crochets have such a pretty, open look.

    • Thanks – really appreciate the positive feedback on this scarf! I wish the photo was able to show how lovely the yarn feels too!

  4. Ooooh I could fill a book with all my tangly yarn experiences!

    Nice scarf. :-)

  5. The scarf looks great on you! Thanks for participating in FO Friday!
