Southwestern Sunset Crochet Sampler Scarf

Southwestern Sunset Sampler Scarf

Sampler crochet patterns are designs that 'sample' multiple crochet stitches throughout the design - sampler afghans are a great way to showcase different scraps of yarn, but sampler scarves always steal the show! This scarf is worked up in five distinct stitch patterns, each in a different color, to give you a bold and exciting new accessory to explore in the fall weather. Each part is fully explained and shown with a full video tutorial, so don't be intimidated by the designs! Grab five of your favorite colors for a fresh punch of color, or stick with neutral hues for an everyday accessory - the choice is yours!

This crochet sample scarf was created as part of an I Love Yarn Day promotion (October 14, 2017)! The theme was “Stitch It Forward,” and to continue spreading the crochet love, we're keeping this full pattern and full video tutorial up for everyone to see and follow along with! Grab your favorite shades of yarn and see how easy and how much fun it is to create a sampler scarf.

This is so cute! Oh my goodness! I think I'd love a version twice as long and wide and turn it into an infinity scarf. Love bulky scarf patterns! The stitches here are so pretty, too.

My mother taught me in my mid-30s after a few years of begging )

My mother taught me when I was quite young (4 or 5). I crocheted too tight then and we gave up for a while. Then I started taking her patterns she got from the newspapers and haven't stopped

LOVED this pattern! Though after I joined the ends with sc's, I liked that look so much that next time I might make each part separately, and then join the panels together with sc's, and then sc around. THANK YOU for sharing this pattern! I started crocheting when my grandmother told me it was the best way to pass the time on road trips. Took it back up last year after I broke my foot, and I can't stop! ) Beautiful patterns like this keep me going!

I learned to crochet from an instruction book (not a good idea) when my daughter was very young. I had been knitting since I was 11 and wanted to try something different.

My grandmother taught me to crochet when I was eight years old and I'm so grateful she did. The colors are awesome for the scarf your making and I like that it's different blocks of stitches I love doing different stitches in my projects less boring

I learned to crochet from videos. I love to crochet. I wish I could learn more on how to crochet clothing.

https// == -Sunset-Sampler-Scarf-CAL/ucid/270346 nice scarf!

As a child I learned to chain from my grandmother. She was a very fast crocheter and I didn't pick up anything more from her. As an adult I took a class from a rather grumpy woman. We were apparently on the same wavelength, though. I could just watch her and immediately repeat her stitches. Lesson If a class, video, book doesn't work for you, quickly move on to another method.

About two years ago (three this Christmas) I was visiting my grandparents in Arizona. I had found that small crafts with repetitive motions helped me focus and were soothing. I was previously making friendship bracelets. I wanted to learn something new, so Christmas day we went to walmart and I picked up some yarn and a crochet kit with a book. I spent that whole evening teaching myself to crochet, and later started using Youtube videos and learning to read patterns. I am so proud of the works I've learned to create.

I am trying to teach myself with YouTube videos.

I spent my whole life watching my Mom crochet. But didn't learn until after she passed away. Youtube videos were a great way for me to learn!

I've started to crochet 8 years ago and never stopped! I am a self taught passionate crocheter. There is never too much yarn in my crochet studio! I love textures, colours and style and would love to try PaintBox Yarns!

I taught myself how to crochet using websites, youtube and books. I have MS and don't get around very well. My hands don't work well sometimes but I found I can crochet most days and I love to create things!

I taught myself how to crochet from a book a few years ago after reading a fiction book that included a similar style and becoming interested.

This is very pretty --has all the typical colors of the Southwestern U.S. and would be fun to work up!

My mom taught me to crochet. She had tried to teach me a couple of times I just couldn't get it. Then one day, I saw a doily that I wanted. So I bought the book thread was determined I WAS going to get it. That was about 15 years ago I still can't get enough.

Many tried to teach me from a young age, but I couldn't "get it". I learnt everything else (knitting, tatting, cross-stitch, sewing), but it took many more years and those instructions from the back of a knitting book for me to learn. Now it's an obsession.

I learned to crochet from a co- worker in 1976. My children tell me I crochet in my sleep.

I learned from my Mother. So for over 50 yrs. It is still my favorite.

Two ladies that I worked with in 1990-1992 taught me to crochet. The first project I completed was a baby blanket. I love to crochet!

I learned how to crochet from my mother as a teenager. Thanks for offering this great giveaway!

When I was 18 I was a stay at home army wife. I bought a booklet on how to crochet. I bought some yarn and a hook and made pot holders for my kitchen.

I taught myself to crochet from a book that my mother passed down to me (and also from YouTube!).

I learned how to crochet from my mother when I was just a little girl. It was the gift that has continued to give.

Wow, what a great way to learn new stitches and use some good yarn with this Southwestern Sunset Sampler Scarf Crochet Along! I love this and learning new stitches to boot! This scarf is a great way to show off your accomplishments and using the Paint Box yarns is a inexpensive way to get some nice color yarns that go great together. I can't wait to finish this beautiful scarf and show it off. Thank you so much for sharing is free crochet along.

My great-grandmother crocheted as I grew up . I used to sit and watch her every time I was there. I wanted her to teach me but she said I was too young.... that was when I was between the ages of 6 to 10. At 13, I got my mother to get me a beginning crochet book and Ive been making things from then on! Ive always have something to do that way, lol.

I actually taught myself. I tried knitting and hated it, so I decided to learn crochet and I have never looked back.

I ended up with a crochet hook in a box of odds and ends bought at a garage sale. I purchased a skein of yarn and checked out a book from my local library on crocheting.I went home and read , looked at the pictures, and practiced as often as I could. My first afghan had stitches of all different sizes. and each row had a different number of stitches but I was proud of it because I had made it. When I was 11 I taught myself to knit the same way.

My mom taught me how to crochet when I was 9 years old. So I have been at it for many years. Unfortunately, I am just now seeing his contest. I am on this site everyday so not sure how I missed getting in on this. Darn. Would have loved to have participated. Is there a way for us to get an email notification for future CAL events? How did everybody else in the comment feed find out? Just curious.

I taught myself how to crochet. I am so happy that I learned.

My Momma taught me when I was about 10 so I could make things for my dolls.

I learned so long ago, I barely remember starting. My mother had a booklet about different needlework techniques. I pretty much taught myself to crochet and embroider from that booklet.

I don't remember how I learned to crochet. I think it may have been from watching others do it. Later my mom showed me some special patterns for edging lace and I was off and running.

I learned to crochet in elementary school, I was eight, when a mom came to teach us to crochet to make gifts for Christmas

I was taught how to crochet by my favourite aunt when I wad only 5 years old. I have been crocheting for more than 35 years!! TBeltowski

I learned to chain stitch from my Mom and learned the rest when given a crochet kit by my Mom in Law

I learned from reading books and following the directions.

Long ago a friend of my mom tried to teach me but I just couldn't get it. Then around 2010, my mom had a bag of granny squares that someone stitched up (think she got it from goodwill or a rummage or something) and she asked me if I could finish it up into an afghan. It took me a while to figure out how to crochet, let alone how to crochet them together. I looked at alot of books and some videos and amazingly it "clicked" for me. I finally understood how to crochet! Crocheting up those pieces into an afghan was one of the first projects I ever crocheted. I have been "Hooked" ever since!

I taught myself to crochet and to knit. Years ago my mom had taught me to knit, but I never continued. With the help of the internet and several CALs I have completed several projects.

I taught myself to crochet from books.

My momma Auntie Taught me

I taught myself how to crochet with the help of a book on learning how!
