Fall has arrived, there are yellow and orange leaves all over and the wind starts blowing then away. It is the perfect time for an easy and quick crochet project and that is what I want to share with all of you this beautiful free pattern called Headlands Crochet Scarf from Darn Good Yarn.
Darn Good Yarn is a creative lifestyle company that was founded by Nicole Snow in 2008. What started with a single ball of handmade silk yarn and a desire to be the most creative version of herself and help others do the same has grown into a global creative community. Darn Good Yarn offers handmade yarn, crafting supplies, kits and monthly subscription boxes as well as clothing and accessories such as sari and cotton wrap skirts. Come and awaken inspiration.
So, what is yarn? By definition, yarn is a thread made of natural or synthetic fibers and is used for knitting or weaving. But yarn is more than just thread or fibers, yarn is a story. From the beginning of its story while it is still being woven by the delicate hands of our workers, to the middle as it passes from our hands to yours. The end of the story is what you decide you want it to be. Whether you decide to buy yarn and turn it into your own creation, or if you decide to buy a ready-to-wear item. Darn Good Yarn sells more than just yarn because we believe in products with a story.
Darn Good Yarn has fabulous art yarns in many unusually unique fibers, the materials for spinning, doll-making, rug hooking, jewelry making, fiber art, mixed media projects and more! If you need amazing craft supplies and want to support a great cause, you’re in the right place.
About the pattern
This pattern was named after the Headlands Dark Sky Park in Michigan by its designer Heather Anderson @TheUnraveledMitten, because it reminds her of the beautiful dance of the northern lights across the sky.
The pattern is worked using double crochet stitches (dc), increasing and decreasing as you go along each row to create the peaks and valleys, and giving the waving look to it.
You can also customize the length to fit your needs by crocheting as many or as little rows as you like.
You can see in the picture below my own version of the Headlands Crochet Scarf, which I called Boho Scarf (available in my shop).
So, what are you waiting for? Go and crochet your own scarf!
