5 Little Monsters: Scallop Scarf

Scallop Scarf

-Yarn for this project provided by Brown Sheep Company-


I recently received some beautiful wool yarn from Brown Sheep Company, a family owned company in Nebraska, and I was really excited to make something with it. I received 3 skeins of their new Stratosphere yarn in teal, navy, and purple, although they have lots of gorgeous colors. I loved the 3 colors together and originally planned to use all of them together in one project but I couldn't come up with a multicolor pattern that loved so I ended up deciding to use them separately.



For this project I chose the teal color, Satellite. The purple color is Cosmic, and the navy is Twilight. I will be sharing patterns with the other colors soon.


The yarn is a superwash wool, which I feel is important for me because having kids I like things I make to be washable. It is a DK weight and worked up beautifully.


The scarf is made in the round and is made all in one piece, although at one point you do need to cut the yarn and reattach it on the other side. You start by working the center strip, then continue working to make the scallops on one side. After you finish the first side you will attach the yarn to the other side of the center strip and work the scallops on that side.


I made the scarf to fit an adult but used my daughter to model because I didn't have another adult to photograph and I hate trying to take pictures of myself. I will be sharing a matching hat pattern soon and will make it in both an adult and large child/teen size.
