This yarn can be used to make the Papillon Scarf (pictured above), a free crochet pattern from By Number 19. The pattern is made with 2 balls of the yarn so you’ll have enough from your win to make 2 beautiful red scarves if you choose to use the pattern. The designer explains: “The Papillon Scarf is a lacy scarf and the pattern is both written and charted. It’s an easy project suited for a beginner crocheter. More than 50 crocheters have already made it on Ravelry.”

by number 19 crochet patterns Day 5 of 12 Days of Crochet Christmas: Win Yarn!

Today’s giveaway prize was sponsored by Birgit of By Number 19. She shares:

“I am a fiber enthusiast from Copenhagen. My crafty mother taught me how to knit and I attended a folk school where I learned to weave, spin and dye wool with natural plant fibers. As a crocheter I am self taught with the help of Japanese crochet books.
On my blog I publish free crochet patterns and write about outstanding crochet artists and bloggers, who deserve a wider audience. My patterns are often charted, since I am a visual crocheter and have a hard time deciphering written only patterns. My style is influenced by the Scandinavian design tradition where ‘less is more’. Have a look at my crochet world at bynumber19!”
