Marigolds Forever Scarf and Wristlets
This pattern was designed for my mother, who was born in October. Marigolds are October’s birth flower. It’s made with a chunky yarn and a large hook, so it works up fast enough that you just might be able to squeeze a set out before the holidays.
Size: One size fits most. The elastic nature of this stitch pattern makes a very stretchy fabric.
Pattern Level: Intermediate
Gauge: 8 hdc and 8 rows in 4 inches.
- 300 yd Malabrigo Mecha or bulky weight yarn
- Size N (9.0mm) crochet hook
- Size H (5.0mm) crochet hook
