Urban Reflection CAL Week 4: Border and Blocking

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.

  1. How many balls of RH Unforgettable did you use for this? 😊

    1. Hi Alison, sorry to keep you waiting. Busy weekend here. I listed the yardage in the materials section of the pattern. I used almost two full skeins.

  2. Hi! This is the first time I am crocheting the granny square so this may be the reason for my error. I am getting a count of 31 in row 4 which is then putting my count and my point in the wrong place/off centered a bit. Any suggestions on what I may be doing wrong? I am counting my chains a a stitch. Also, I. Row 3 it says to chain 3 and turn and I am guessing it should be chain 4 and turn as that is what it is for all other rows. Thanks!

    1. Hi Julie! You're right, there is an error in the st count for row 4. It should actually be 32. I'm guessing you are missing the dc in the ch 1 sp at the end of the row. The ch 4 from the previous row counts as a dc (first 3 chs) and a ch 1 sp ( the 4th ch). So make sure that you have a dc in that ch 1 sp and then a dc in the third ch of that ch 4. (3rd ch if you're counting them from the bottom up, the way they we're stitched) Does that make sense? I will get the row count updated as soon as I can get on a computer.

      The end of row 3 is correct with a ch 3 turn. Row 4 is done in all dc stitches. There are no ch 1 spaces and so the ch 3 counts as only a dc stitch instead of having a dc and ch 1 at the beginning of row 4.

      Hope that helps! Please let me know if you have any other questions and thanks for bringing that error to my attention. I'll get it fixed asap!

  3. Hi, I love the pattern but am confused as to FLO and BLO abbrev on the Border part. Thanks.

  4. Hi, I think I figured it out--FLO front loop only and BLO back loop only. Thank you so much for such an awesome free pattern. I love the look and style of it. The colors just 'pop'.

    1. Yep! You've got it! I hope you enjoy your scarf. Have a wonderful day.

  5. Can you please give me the stitch count for rows 7 and 8? I am having trouble with the middle of row 8 lining up correctly and have attempted 3 times. Thank you!

    1. Hi Crystin, I’m so sorry I missed this question almost a year ago now! 😢 If you still need help I’d like to try and help you figure it out.

  6. Hi,
    Is there a video of this anywhere? My start is wonky.

    1. Hi Kat, I’m sorry, I don’t have my patterns on video at this time. If it helps I can go live on either Instagram or Facebook and demo the first few rows. Do you prefer one over the other?

Chevron Love Afghan

Let's get ready to CHEVROOOON!!! Woohoo!!! This pattern has been tested and is now ready for you to all enjoy! It's actually pretty simple. I think you all will be pleasantly impressed. I had so much fun making this afghan. I haven't made one in about 5 yrs. I got into a slump and between this chevron afghan and another that has me busy currently, I have come back into the world of afghans! I LOVE making them again! : D HOORAY! Also, for me, it was so fun and refreshing to be making this in boy colors. I have two girls so it isn't often that I get to play around with blues and greens and it was so so much fun!

Infinity Hooded Scarf

Ok friends, I know that I have been promising this pattern for a while on FB. Hope it was worth the wait! {Fingers crossed} This is an infinity scarf which means it is made in one continuous circle. {No weird awkward ends to tuck in somewhere!} In this version I have attached a hood for extra warmth in the wind, rain, and snow that come with fall and winter. The nice thing about this particular pattern is that you have the option of making it with and without the hood. They are worked separately and then attached. The scarf looks beautiful both ways. Enough talking - lets get hooking!! Infinity Hooded Scarf This pattern has been sold to All Free Crochet and can be found HERE .

Bobble Car Seat Blanket

This is a gift EVERY new mother needs! How many times have you been leaving the store, bags in one hand, baby carrier in the other and up blows the wind? Trying to shield the baby and keep the blanket on them without dropping all your bags can be one challenging balance act for even the most talented contortionist! Or there is the ever so simple problem of the active child that kicks off every blanket that you place over them. NO MORE! This blanket is specifically designed to be locked into the car seat without adding extra bulk under the straps that can jeopardize the safety of the baby.   It has two slits in the blanket that allow you to slip the bottom lock of the car seat through the blanket and then strap the child underneath it. The blanket is designed to fit right over the car seat without extra length hanging off the edges and the bobbled stitches give your little one something to touch and feel. So let's get started!! : ) This is the perfect baby shower gift and
