Elegant Crescent Moon skinny scarf

Since it is summer, I’m always on the lookout for skinny scarf ideas. About a month ago I purchased The Complete Photo Guide to Crochet by Margaret Hubert, and it’s been a super resource in my new adventures of crocheting. It’s super easy to read, very direct, and if I do by chance get confused or turned around there’s likely a YouTube video to help.

It has taken me quite a bit of time to thumb through the entire book. Towards the end, Margaret has some great patterns for crochet edging. The one I like the most is the crescent moon edging. It is so beautiful I thought it could stand alone given the right yarn. Plus she categorizes each stitch, beginner, intermediate and advanced. This particular one is advanced so naturally I responded with “Challenge Accepted!

Then I happened upon some acrylic yarn blend with metallic colored thread, and it was only $1 at my local craft store. Hello experiment time!

i love the color and the rainbow metallic undertones. I used the entire skein to make it nice and long for versatility of wear.

Just goes to show you, even an extremely intricate pattern can be worked up by a beginner if it’s written clearly and easy to follow.

Have a Craft Day!
