I finally finished this scarf using echo view fiber mill 100% merino wool in a mini bean stitch. I also used a size J crochet hook. The wool is incredibly soft and this will make a really nice scarf for someone.
I used a chunky cascade yarn for this scarf in a mini bean stitch. This is the first time I have tried the stitch and it worked up very quickly and was easy to learn. You can watch the tutorial here on YouTube.
I found this yarn at one of the Greenville South Carolina local yarn shops called Yarn and Y’all at the recent Southeast men’s knitting retreat. I used one skein to make this scarf in a crocheted linen stitch and also used a size H 5 mm crochet hook.
I’m pretty sure this is alpaca yarn but I’ve been working on this scarf for so long I forget exactly what kind of yarn it is. It’s a lace weight yarn and I used a 4 mm bamboo hook to crochet a basic shell stitch. It’s incredibly soft and I think it turned out really nice.
I decided to try a different tuck stitch pattern and used every other needle on the machine. Look through the pictures and you can see the various stages of its development from blocking to being finished.
