When I began work on the design for my scarf and mitts, I spent countless hours flipping the pages of my crochet stitch books, marking patterns of inspiration with thoughts and ideas. There has always been something that I love about the pattern, Single Crochet Magic. It’s elegant yet common, lacy and simple. I’ve worked many projects with many yarns. Now, finally, I feel all my experience has come together and my persistence has paid off with this hand warmer & scarf set.

Classic One Fifty
100% fine merino
Classic One Fifty is a smooth, soft, 100% merino yarn. Its lovely hand has to do with the softness of the fiber and the structure of the yarn. It's made from fine, fine plies which are themselves, fine, fine, fine plies twisted together. All the plies and the twisting create a round, tube-like lightweight yarn with very little fuzz on the surface. It’s a great yarn not only for knitted projects, but for crochet ones, too.
Classic One Fifty comes in a palette of 31 colors that offers many options for great color combinations. It knits up between 5½ and 6 stitches to the inch.
A simple edging can often add striking detail to a garment. The picot edging around the outer edge of the scarf and the wrist edge of the mitts is easy to make, and it can be added to any edge.
It is worked by simply working 3 single crochet stitches, chaining 3, then working a slip stitch into the last single crochet that was worked. By working into that single crochet stitch the chain-3 forms a tight loop making an elegant little picot.
