I love the Elegant Cocoon Cardigan because it is such a simple pattern that looks fabulous once completed. I guarantee even a beginner crocheter will be able to master the drunken granny stitch in no time once the first couple of rows are done. If …

The Richard wrist warmers (named after my very supportive husband) are a more masculine version of our Susan Wrist warmers. These men’s wrist warmers are a great gift idea, and a good way to use your scraps or bust that stash! Do you remember our …
Our Robin collection continues to grow with the release of Robin’s Scarf. This is a timeless unisex design that looks great in any colour yarn. Its a lovely warm piece so it make a great Christmas gift when the weather in the Northern Hemisphere is getting particularly brisk!
So what is it about this collection that makes it grow?
We have had A LOT of people tell us that they love the pieces in the Robin Collection. And there are many reasons for this:
- The stitches used are much simpler than the finished item makes it look
- You get the effect of cables without the frogging and frustration
- It is a great stitch combo for fairly new beginners. Once you have mastered the sc, hdc and dc then you are ready for the Robin patterns!
- There is an elegance to this stitch combination that people of all ages love!
Part of a set
This week we have also released the Robin beanie pattern (which you can read about here). The beanie is free with the special code throughout October 2020 as part of the Crochet Cancer Challenge. If you use the code to get the beanie you are pledging to make at least one of the Robin Beanies to donate to a cancer unit near you before the end of the year!
This scarf goes perfectly with the beanie pattern! Take a look ….
Robin’s scarf uses sc, hdc and dc with some worked into the back loop only to obtain the ribbing and some third loop to get the texture on the body of the hat. The pattern includes video links on how to work the third loop and also how to do the sedge stitch (the sc, hdc, dc combo).
So this scarf is a great project for a recent beginner who knows the basics and wants to progress a little and play with texture.
There are stitch multiples given in the pattern so that you can adjust the size to suit your requirements. For a wider scarf just add repeats!
There is a gauge given in this pattern but lets face it – IT’S A SCARF! Gauge is not essential in this project. I do recommend stitch markers to mark the first and last stitch of the row. This helps to keep your counts correct.
For October 2020 ONLY you can get this scarf for 50% off using the code ROBIN on our Ravelry Store using the Ravelry link below.
