You may remember that I created a stitch tutorial a couple of weeks ago showing you how to create this beautiful stitch – see the tutorial here.

Rows 4 – 12: Repeat the steps in Row 3. If you would like the gloves longer add additional rows.

Finishing

The Elizabeth Stitch – Easy Crochet Tutorial

| Crochet

The Elizabeth stitch is absolutely beautiful in my opinion - it's an easy stitch to crochet and once you get going, you'll be able to do it in your sleep.Crochet Stitch of the Month – The Elizabeth Stitch

I’m really excited this week to share a new type of blog post that I’ll be posting each month – the crochet stitch of the month. 

One of my favorite things about crocheting is learning new stitches and figuring out how I can implement them in my patterns. I’m always on the search for lovely but easy stitches, just like the Elizabeth stitch.

Over the last few weeks, I’ve shared some crochet projects with you that incorporate the Elizabeth stitch – starting with our first project, Easy Elizabeth Stitch Fingerless Gloves. Following that we did the Elizabeth Stitch Crochet Hat Pattern and finally the Elizabeth Stitch Boot Cuffs.

The Elizabeth stitch is absolutely beautiful in my opinion. From my research, I’ve also heard this referred to as the Mini Bean stitch (but I think the Elizabeth stitch sounds a little more refined and chic – befitting this gorgeous stitch). It’s sweet, elegant and has a gentle criss-cross look to it. I also love the slightly bumpy texture. More importantly, it’s a really fun and easy stitch to work up and once you get going, you’ll be able to do it in your sleep.

Elizabeth Stitch

Start by chaining multiples of 2 + 4 to the desired length.

Row 1: Insert your hook into the 4th chain from the hook and pull up a loop, yarn over, back into the same stitch and pull up another loop, yarn over and pull through all four loops on the hook. *ch1, skip 1 ch, insert your hook into next stitch, pull up a loop, yarn over, back into the same stitch and pull up another loop, yarn over and pull through all four loops on the hook. Rep from * until the end of the row, turn.

Row 2: ch 3, *insert your hook into first ch 1 space, pull up a loop, yarn over and back into same space, pull up another loop, yarn over and pull through all four loops on the hook, ch 1; repeat from * across the entire row with the last stitch being worked under the turning chain, turn.

Continue Row 2 until you have reached the desired length for your project.

Colorful Crochet Triangle Scarf Pattern

| Crochet

Colorful Crochet Triangle Scarf

Now that school is back in session and fall is here, it’s fun to make some accessories for the cooler weather. While it seems to be the trend, fall usually means a much darker color palette for clothing. I understand this trend but it doesn’t mean you can’t add a pop of color to those darker, drab colors.

I was inspired to make something colorful when I came across the Caron Cakes yarn ‘Rainbow Sherbet’. Wow, will this exciting yarn help to brighten up an outfit!

When my daughter Noelle saw the Caron Cakes yarn she asked me to make her something that she could wear to school. I have fallen in love with the adorable triangle scarves I’ve been seeing all over Pinterest so I decided that would be my new project.

This colorful triangle scarf is ridiculously easy to make and you’ll be able to whip it up in an hour or two. I would even go so far as saying it’s a beginner-friendly crochet pattern. It’s also customizable for sizing – if you want a smaller scarf (for a small child), then don’t crochet so many rows and if you’d like it larger, crochet more rows.

Colorful Crochet Triangle Scarf

SKILL LEVEL: EASY

MATERIALS:

ABBREVIATIONS:

  • st = stitch
  • ch = chain
  • sl = slip stitch
  • hdc = half double crochet
  • ch-sp = chain space

PATTERN:

Ch 4, leaving a minimum 6” tail (this becomes the center point of the scarf).

ROW 1: 2 Hdc in the 1st chain (4th from the hook). Ch4.

ROW 2: Turn, (hdc, ch 1) into the ch-sp directly below the ch 4 you just made, 2hdc in the top of the ch 4.Ch4.

ROW 3: Turn, (hdc, ch1) into the ch-sp below directly below the ch 4 you just made, (2hdc, ch) in next ch-1 sp. 2hdc in the top of the ch 4. Ch4. Turn.

ROW 4 – 40: Turn, (hdc, ch1) into the ch-sp below directly below the ch 4 you just made, *(2hdc, ch) in next ch-1 sp.* repeat across row ending with 2hdc in the top of the ch 4. Ch4. Turn. Work until row 40 or desired height.

Break yarn, weave in ends.

Add Tassel

Make and attach the tassel to the center point of the triangle. If you don’t know how to make a tassel, check out this great tutorial for making tassels.

Add Fringe
Cut yarn (holding both strands of yarn weights together) in 13” strands. Fold the strands of yarn for one fringe in half, forming a loop at one end. Match the cut ends of the yarn on the other end. Take your hook and draw the loop through the stitch that you’re attaching the fringe to. Draw the loose ends of the yarn through the loop. This step creates the knot. Holding the top of the fringe in one hand, pull gently on the fringe ends with your other hand, tightening the knot until it’s secure. To finish, trim the ends of the fringe so that they’re even.

Add Button
Sew your chosen button to the top corner tip of your scarf.
