Samantha's Scarf-Ette.

 

 

One of our sensationally talented Yarn Me Calm (YMC) Community members designed this gorgeous Scarf-Ette.

The lovely Samantha Murray (@thewoollymammothco on Instagram) gracefully offered to have her stunning design posted on The Calming Yarn Blog as a free pattern!

I am so excited to share this gorgeous make with you here! 

I was so excited when she first let me know that I even offered to test making the Scarf-Ette, so now I have one of my own - YAY!!!  One of our other sensational Yarn Me Calm Community Members, Simone Howes, also tested this gorgeous pattern (thanks Simone x).

I hope you all love this pattern as much as I do and it would be wonderful if you jumped on over to Samantha's Instagram page to show her your appreciation!

Repeat rows 10-17 until you reach the desired width (approximately 23cm wide).  I finished on Row 3 then SC around the entire Scarf-Ette to create a border.

 

Simone finished on Row 7 and had a finished size of 101cm (40 inches) x 20cm (8 inches).

 

At this stage you can choose to put buttons on your Samantha’s Scarf-Ette or leave it without.

 

 

If you would like to use your Samantha’s Scarf-Ette as a cowl then fold your Samantha’s Scarf-Ette so the two ends come to a point (pictured). 

 

Secure the buttons on your Samantha’s Scarf-Ette to correspond with the spaces and you have instant button holes!!!
