Hello all my lovely friends! We woke up to our first snowfall this last week and I was so excited and inspired that I knew I had to put the final touches on this post and get it out to all of you. Winter will be here before we know it! 

I LOVE how plush and cozy the Chevron Love Super Scarf is! It uses the same basic design as my other Chevron Love patterns but is worked up in a super bulky weight yarn. It is so warm and works up so fast! As a super scarf it is wider and longer then a regular scarf. You can wrap it multiple times for extra layers or leave it hanging down to showcase the design. The Chevron Love Super Scarf is the perfect accessory and gift. I hope you enjoy making yours. Don't forget that I would love to see your creations of the Chevron Love Super Scarf so please share them with me on Facebook, Ravelry, Instagram or Twitter.

How To Make Tassels or Fringe

This is a photo tutorial that will show you how to make either tassels or fringe for the edge of a crochet or knit accessory. The photos are from the tassels that I made on the Chevron Love Super Scarf but the same method can be applied to making fringe along the edge of a scarf, shawl or other accessory.

Take the yarn you want to use for the tassel, fold it in half and pull the loop through the designated stitch.

Pull the tassel ends through the loop.

Pull the tassel ends until the loop is tight and secure. Trim the tassel ends so that they are even.

If you are a member of pretty much any crochet group on social media I'm betting by now you have heard of or seen the new planned pooling argyle craze. To catch you up in case you have no idea what I am talking about: color pooling with yarn is what happens when you work with a variegated yarn and the colors either seem to group together or form distinguishable patterns within your finished item. I'm sure you've made a hat or and somehow the green in the variegated yarn always seems line up or something similar. Planned pooling is basically planning ahead of time to make your variegated yarn come together in a way that creates a color pattern. Over the last couple weeks this concept has gotten a crazy amount of attention!

It really is a lot of fun when you get the process down but it can be extremely frustrating to get the correct beginning chain because each variegated yarn has different lengths for the colors in the yarn. Ann from Glamour4You is a freaking math GENIUS and she figured out a way to make it work for just about any variegated yarn. I used her method to make 4 different argyle dishcloths.
