The Waffle Ribbed Neck Warmer scarf crochet pattern adds a cozy warmth to your wardrobe adding a perfect scarf accent to adorn their favourite coat, sweater or T shirt. EASY TO CROCHET PATTERN. The design adds a contemporary yet classic feel to your wardrobe. I used Malabrigo Sock yarn for the photo’s. You can use most sock or fingerling weight yarns to make it. A great design for men and woman that is easy to crochet. More information about the pattern is on the websites listed above.

Designed with sock/fingerling weight yarn so you can wear it in most seasons. The Waffle Ribbed scarf can also be made in a solid colour, multiple colours on each row, two toned colours, hand painted yarns to suit your wardrobe and style.

I was inspired to design a scarf that would be great for both men and woman to wear that wasn’t too big and bulky but would add a lovely warmth. The waffle ribbed texture adds an additional feature to the design and extra warmth even though you are using a finer sock weight or fingerling weight yarn. I chose to use the Malabrigo Sock yarn this time as it is a wonderful and luxrious yarn that is 100% merino wool. The colours are a true enjoyment to crochet with. In the photo’s I used Abril colour way for the purple/blue scarf and the Indecitia colour way for the green/purple/blue/yellow scarf. You can use most sock weight yarns for this design just make sure you make a quick gauge test to see if you need to change your hook size.

Various new crochet patterns are available on my Etsy store, Ravelry and LoveCrafts. See my links below to purchase and for more information.

Yarn and new handmade scarves are also available.

Designed with sock/fingerling weight yarn so you can wear it in most seasons. Perfect in a merino wool or other cozy yarns for the fall and winter or make it in a silk or linen yarn for the cool spring and summer days adding a lace and floral touch to your wardrobe.

New Designs and more…crochet and knitting

Now available on my Etsy store at www.valeriebaberdesigns.etsy.com Many other unique scarves, hand warmers, hats and more.  Check out the newest designs too.

It has been a long hard 10 weeks since I injured my right arm especially since I haven’t been able to knit or crochet since then and still not able to.  I have to say it is almost torture for a designer not to design and create everyday, but at the same time it gives you rest (even though your kicking and screaming LOL).  The injury progressed to my left arm due to over use looking after the right arm and then angered my neck and shoulders so just when I thought I was making head way everything was a mess.  Glad to say that this week I finally feel like I am getting back to doing some things myself again and it feels great.  Part of my injuries was over use from working to hard on my creations, but you know you just have to knit and crochet as it’s so much fun.  I did try to dabble a little with more pattern writing, perhaps I will work on that again soon.

I hope in the next few months that I can once again pick up my needles and create new pieces.  Luckily I was working on new designs all year prior to my injuries and will have more new designs on my Etsy store soon.  You can also link with www.valeriebaberdesign.com for my new Etsy Website.

You can also purchase my many designs locally in Edmonton, Alberta at www.albertacraft.ab.ca or in St. Albert, Alberta at www.artgalleryofstalbert.ca
