Mini-Tube Scarf

December 07, 2016

Oh boy - it is getting cold outside!

So what to wear, when you want something special, fancy and warm - and fur isn't an option?

The Mini-Tube Scarf pattern got released yesterday on www.lovecrochet.com.

Have a closer look there or right below.

From Idea to Tests

A long time ago I got inspired by the braided scarf and the infinity scarf and wanted to see, if it was possible to create a scarf of NOT-braided tubes.
 

It took a while to figure out how to fold the scarf, so you can actually wear it, without getting strangled when you take it off. That would make such a mess, right?!

Then I did long and complex calculations of what length was needed for different sizes. I realized that testing was much better than calculations. So I tested, measured, tested and measured and tested and tested.

Recently I finished writing down the results and the pattern is now available at www.lovecrochet.com. It almost instantly got a single like in the Love Crochet Community. Hurrah! :D

Btw: Come join the Love Crochet Community if you want more inspiration. there are currently a lot of hats. Maybe one will fit the Mini-Tube Scarf?

Pattern Details

Two Versions

The scarf is sort of an infinity-scarf. There are two versions: One, you can wrap twice and a longer version, that can be wrapped 3 times. The longer version can be made more or less wavy.

To make the mini-tubes stay in place, the scarf is folded in a special way and given a few invisible stitches.


No Fill, but Warm Air

The scarf takes advantage of the nature and structure of crochet stitches. This is what makes the tubes stay tube-like without stuffing.

If you want the scarf to be very warm, then wear it tight. That way your body will heat up the air in the tubes and the tubes will protect you from getting cold.

Stitches

The only special stitch is the Front Post Double Crochet Stitch. There is a tutorial for this stitch in the back of the pattern.

Difficulty ★★★☆☆

For a skilled crocheter, most of it should be a piece of cake and can be done while watching TV. If you are a beginner, then go for it, but be patient. The most difficult parts are the beginning and the folding of the scarf.

Languages and Support

The pattern is currently available in Danish and English (US terms).
