Granny Stitch Triangle Scarf

My favorite accessories are ones that I can use in multiple seasons. Transitional pieces that I can use to spice up an outfit as we switch from winter to summer and from summer to winter. Triangle scarfs are perfect for those more chilly days that come when the weather changes and granny squares are a timeless stitch pattern. Enter the Granny Triangle Scarf! Perfect on all fronts!

It is easy and quick to make up and a perfect pattern for beginning crocheters who want to try their hand as simple shaping. You can also easily customize the size by continuing the pattern repeat until the scarf is as long as you want it to be. It could even be made into a shawl if that is what you are looking for! I hope you enjoy making and wearing yours as much as I do.

Buffalo Check Obsession Scarf

I've always been drawn to gingham patterns. I love that buffalo check plaid and gingham are coming back into the fashion world. They are so on trend right now! This winter when this red and black buffalo check plaid went crazy I fell in LOVE with it. I really have buffalo check plaid obsession! I wonder if it's diagnosable?..

It took me longer then I was hoping, but I finally was able to get the look I wanted. I hope you love it as much as I do!
This pattern is a little more advanced as the best way to make the plaid checkered squares is to carry your yarn, there is also joining and surface crochet. I've included step by step photos for the more complicated parts that I hope will be helpful. It is a beautiful, cozy, warm scarf and I hope you enjoy making it!

The Buffalo Check Obsession Scarf has two options, either a cowl that would wrap around your neck once or an infinity that would wrap around twice. The modeled pictures are of the infinity scarf.

I will apologize, red and black yarns are probably the HARDEST to photograph. I tried to make these pictures as clear as possible.

Warm Up Quick Infinity Scarf


Hey everyone! Is it chilly where you are? It's freezing here! Like literally! We've had weeks at a time that it hasn't gotten above 32 degrees! (Or zero for those of you that use Celsius). 

I suddenly realized that I didn't have scarves for me or my girls! I usually donate the ones we used the previous winter when it starts to warm up so that someone else can stay warm and I'm not packing away things I will never find again or use. Somehow winter hit this year and I wasn't ready for it! Haha! Long story short, we all needed scarves and we needed them FAST! 

This infinity scarf works up so quickly and because of the bulky yarn it is also soft and warm. It makes a great last minute gift and because of the simple stitches it's a good gender neutral pattern. Also, because it works up so quickly, it's easy to make it in every color and expand your accessory wardrobe! I hope you enjoy it!

I'm Back!!!

You guys!!!! I am so so so excited about this! I have missed designing so much and really I have missed talking yarn with all my friends!
So much has happened over this last year. The biggest news of all being - our family grew by one! We now have our first little boy!


He is the happiest baby - seriously never stops smiling! {Unless he's poopy.... hahaha!} He is content in almost every situation, loves his sisters and daddy. {He loves me too but that's a given - I make the food! Hahaha!} We had some pretty serious jaundice concerns with him the first couple months but now there is no stopping him. He is growing too fast! He has made our life more complete then I ever thought it could be. I never knew what I was missing not having a boy!


I am so excited to get a new free pattern out to you! It's in the works right now and almost done!
