Crochet Scarf Tan White Lilac and Sage

Cotton yarn made in Canada of US grown cotton
Today we have a crochet scarf made with tan and tan/lilac/sage cotton yarn. It's 74 inches (188 cm) long (plus 7 inch/18 cm fringe) by 4 inches (10 cm) wide.

One of my Scrap Happy Scarves, this cotton crochet scarf is called "Sandy Lilacs". It features a tan stripe of about 1-1/2 inches (4 cm) wide on one edge, with the rest of the scarf made up of a multi-colored "twist" yarn. Each ply is a different color - in this case icy looking tan, white, lilac, and light sage. This twisted yarn lends a tweedy look to the scarf. It's a tough call but I'm going to have to side with the cool-toned Winters on this crochet scarf, though some Springs may be able to pull it off.

All my Scrap Happy Scarves are crocheted, by me. They can consist of left over yarn scraps, mismatched dye lots, that one remaining skein in the bin (that isn't enough to use for anything else), and, yes, the reclaimings of a project that has gone horribly wrong - or all of the above! ALL YARN IS NEW! Even the reclaimed yarn is technically new as the never finished project was also never worn or used. The yarn is made in Canada, of USA grown cotton. I was made here in the USA. Because the yarn tends to be a tad stiff (but not scratchy) I worked it up a bit looser than some of my Scrap Happys of other fibers. Give it love, regular baths, and the occasional dose of fabric softener and it'll quickly break in like a pair of favorite jeans. Just an FYI: because of the stitch used in making my Scrap Happys the ends have a tendency to curl. This is normal!

To care for your crochet scarf all you need to do is wash it the Delicate cycle (cold water is preferred, but warm can be used to clean a particularly dirty Scrap Happy). No bleach, but fabric softener is ok. Then dry flat. Tumble drying is okay if you only dry your scarf until it is still slightly damp. Over-drying will result in a rough scarf! A delicates bag is recommended to keep it looking new for as long as possible, and to keep the fringe from tangling. Iron when necessary, using the "Cotton" setting.
