Double Crochet Ribbed Stitch Scarf

While in Houston for Quilt Festival, I discovered Knit Picks and they took all my money. I needed a project that I didn’t have to think about for the flight home, so I snagged 4 skeins of the Finley Heather Wonderfluff and settled on making a scarf.

Eventually I’ll put the stitch chart here when I remember, but it’s basically double crochet and after the first set of double crochets I alternated between the front and the back post and made sure it was all going the same direction when I went the other way and I ended with a half double crochet.

I needed to order one more skein to make it long enough for my liking and yaaay a scarf was born.

So I totally love this scarf and yarn but it sheds which I’m guessing is normal so does anyone know how to de-shed it? Like do I use my vacuum or take it outside and shake it like a Polaroid picture or will washing it remove it? Knew to all this yarn business so any tips in the comments would help a brother out.

  1. I would do would do what Roxanne suggested and if that doesn’t work, wash it. Remember, it has to be hand washed and layed flat to dry.

  2. How wonderfully productive to have a new scarf by the time you finish your flight. Boy, I wish I had an answer for you as I have the same question!! This past summer I bought a gorgeous wrap at the Farmers’ Market. The yarns are hand spun from the maker’s alpacas (yes, each row has a name, lol!). Its soft, cozy warm, gorgeous and leaves fur everywhere! Take it from me – don’t wear that scarf with anything black until you get an answer.
