Horizons Scarf crochet pattern has a beautiful seashore essence. My favourite place to be is on the beach by Stanley Park in Vancouver, BC, Canada. Moments by the waters edge calm and rejuvenate your mind and soul. Designed for SweetGeorgia Yarns as one of their monthly patterns which is very fitting since they to are in Vancouver and my favourite stop while I am visiting. I love spending time in their store side of the business see the newest colours and fibres available. What an uplifting time to be surrounded by so much colour and yarn! My creative mind is in bliss when I am there surrounded by creative people and stunning and exquisite yarns. Make sure you pop into SweetGeorgia Yarns when you are in Vancouver.
The Horizons Scarf features an elegant lace design giving the essence of calmness, the feeling of standing by the edge of a beach watching as the sand colour fades from light to dark. The blue deepens as you look further out into the sea, the beautiful white waves cresting in between. Each of the colour changes bringing you back to the peaceful moments by the Seashore. The gray toned scarf shows the versatility of this design and how you can personalize the colours it to your wardrobe. Pattern is written using US crochet terminology.
The Horizons Scarf is worked in flat and pattern is written for Scarf A (blue, ivory, apricot) using a combination of the large skein of Birch with intermittent Party of Five mini skeins in the Seashore colour.
