The Delightful Scarf is a quick and easy workup that is great for gifts, craft fairs, or just for yourself! This is an easy pattern that most anyone with basic crochet skills should be able to work!
The Delight Scarf uses the Lion Brand Yarn Scarfie line which is a #5 bulky weight and has 312 yards. You only need one skein to make this scarf, but the Scarfie line comes in so many fun color combinations that you will have trouble deciding on only one!
The Delightful Scarf is just that! Delightful! I hope you enjoy making it as much as I did.

I have a few patterns that use the herringbone half double crochet stitch as the main stitch. So I thought it was high time I make a video tutorial for it! My brand new Charlotte Cardigan crochet pattern is one of those designs that uses this stitch, as well as a hhdc2tog (herringbone half double crochet 2 together) decrease. So I’ve made a video for both!
I am left-handed, so this tutorial will be slightly easier to follow for left-handed crocheters, but the steps are exactly the same for right-handed crocheters, just worked in the opposite direction!
I hope you find these tutorials helpful! If at anytime you have any questions, please feel free to contact me!
*I am not affiliated with Red Heart Yarn or Micheals Stores in any way. This is my honest review.*
Red Heart has recently come out with a new yarn and when it went on sale at Micheal’s I knew I had to check it out! I knew I loved Red Heart Soft, a worsted weight yarn, so I had a feeling I would love the new Red Heart Soft Essentials Yarn too!
Soft Essentials Details:
Weight: #5 Bulky
Material: 100% Acrylic
Yardage: 131 yds
Suggested Crochet Hook: 6.5mm (K)
This yarn holds to it’s name. It is very soft! It’s also not a very thick bulky. I’d compare it to holding two strands of worsted weight yarn together. It’s not very heavy at all. When I purchased it I knew exactly what I wanted to make with it. So I brought it home and got to work. This yarn is very easy to work with. It glides through the stitches very smoothly with no snagging and very little pilling. I really enjoyed working with it.
I knew when I saw and felt the Soft Essentials yarn that I wanted to design a cardigan! It just had that cozy feel to it that would be perfect for a simple cardigan. This crochet pattern comes with instructions for women’s sizes XS through 2X. It is a top down pattern with trim and sleeves added at the end. It is sew free, except for a small amount of stitching at the pockets, which are optional. This cozy cardigan is perfect for the cool spring mornings and evenings that are coming. And this yarn is the perfect yarn for it!
I’ve just released the Charlotte Cardigan in my Ravelry shop and you can get it for 50% off using coupon code “SoftEssentials” at checkout! The code is good through Friday, March 17, 2017.

If you’ve been following me for any amount of time, you know that a lot of my crochet designs are clothing. I love to design sweaters and tops for both adults and children! But with crocheting garments, like a sweater, comes a lot of questions and concerns. Mostly about fit and how to get it to fit your shape and size correctly. So here are my best tips for crocheting garments and getting an amazing fit!
Crocheting a piece of clothing like a sweater takes a little more preparation than something small like a hat or a scarf. Here are some tips for preparing for your project.
Choose the yarn called for in the pattern or a comparable yarn. At the very least, stay within the yarn weight that the pattern calls for. You will not get the same fit and look if you use a DK weight yarn if the pattern calls for Bulky yarn and vice versa.
Make sure you have the amount of yarn you need. I always get more than the amount needed for my size, just to be on the safe side so I don’t run out mid-project.
Get measurements. If you are making the clothing for yourself, it’s a little easier because you can try it on as you go. But if you are making the piece for someone else, it’s very important to take their measurements for a good fit.
ALWAYS check your gauge and match your hook size appropriately. Gauge is very important to check when working on a crochet clothing project.
Making Sizing Adjustments As You Crochet
Most of my patterns have multiple sizes for you to make, but what if you are slightly in between sizes, would like just a little bit more ease, or would like it a little tighter? There are ways to easily adjust the fit just slightly so that the garment can fit you exactly how you want it!
To adjust width
Go up a hook size or two (from the hook you met gauge with) if you’d just like a little more ease in your top. Go down a hook size or two for a slightly tighter fit.
If you are right in between sizes, I suggest going up a size, rather than down to the smaller size.
To adjust length
Almost all of my patterns are super easy to adjust the length. You can just do more or less rounds to make your garment longer or shorter. This same trick can also be applied for sleeves.
If the pattern calls for chainless foundation single crochet (fsc) to start, but your tension is pretty loose for this stitch, you may want to just chain, join, and sc in each stitch around. This will make it less stretchy and loose around the neck. Or if it’s the opposite and it calls for a starting chain, but you want it to fit looser and be stretchier around the neck, fsc is a great option. If you just want a slight change in the neckline, going up or down a hook size will also help with this. Just remember, the weight of your sleeves, once added, will pull the neckline out just slightly.
If the armholes come up too high and feel tight in your armpits, add a few more rounds of the last round you did (no increases) before going to the round that creates the armhole. This will cause the armhole to
sit lower and not be so tight around your underarms.
An easy fix for a slightly looser or tighter fit in the sleeves is, once again, going up or down a hook size. If the sleeves are very tight or very loose, try working the counts for the next size up or down. Also, if the sleeve tapers, and you would like it not to, just leave out any decreases throughout the sleeve. Or if you’d like it to taper more, do another round or two of decreases throughout the sleeve.
Crocheting Garments from the Bottom Up
Most adjustments work the same way for a bottom up garment, but there are a few changes that you would have to make differently. If the armholes feel too small or too high in your underarm, just make your front and back panels longer before joining. For the neckline, if you’d like a looser fit, work less stitches when stitching your two panels together.
