Back to Basics
Sometimes as designers, we can feel the pressure to set the next trend or discover the newest technique, which can be really daunting. Don’t get me wrong – I do love a challenge. But sometimes, I just want to crochet for the joy of it – to enjoy the stitches and fall in love with the finished piece. That was the inspiration for the Hayride Triangle Scarf. I wanted to design a classic piece with luxurious yarn that would fit in my forever wardrobe.
There are a few items I think of when I consider my favorite classic crochet pieces. A structured beanie, a rectangle scarf with fringe, and a chunky cardigan are a few that come to mind. A top-down triangle scarf is another style that falls into that classic category.
The interspersed solid and mesh sections of the Hayride Triangle Scarf take the basic motif to the next level without being complicated. I added a contrasting textured border and chunky tassels for additional touches of personality. I’m so excited to wear this scarf all fall long.
Obsessed with Triangle Scarves
I’ve been low-key obsessed with designing triangle scarves since the early days of TL Yarn Crafts. One of my first triangle scarves was a 100% Pima cotton number called the Free Yourself Shawl. Like the Hayride Triangle Scarf, this shawl has mesh sections through the body and fun tassels. I still have my original sample and love wearing it on cooler summer nights.
Since then, I’ve released more triangle scarves than I can count. A few of my favorites are the Coles River Kerchief, the Bronwyn Shawl, the Flatiron Shawl, and the Ada Shawl. Each pattern has it’s own style and features, and they all have a special place in my maker wardrobe.
Picking the Right Yarn
I’m really grateful to partner with my friends from WeCrochet for the Hayride Triangle Scarf design. They gave me free rein over their massive collection of yarn to pick what I liked to design something I loved. One yarn that I don’t have much experience with is tweed. The little neps have always seemed a little intimidating. Then I stumbled upon WeCrochet’s City Tweed DK and decided to try something new.
City Tweed DK is a category 3 DK weight blend of merino wool, alpaca, and tweed. Believe me, this yarn is just as soft and luxurious as it sounds. WeCrochet took it to the next level by creating an amazingly sultry palette of 23 colors. I had so much fun pairing colors together for the Hayride Triangle Scarf.
