Every year when March rolls around, I begin thinking of crochet designs again. Why March? Because March is Crochet Month.
This week's crochet ruffle scarf works up really fast, and is fun to make. It begins with a row of single crochets and chain-1 eyelets, then each following row increases stitches to make it ruffly. Soft Linen is the perfect yarn for this scarfits smooth texture makes it easy to work with a hook, and its softness feels great wrapped around my neck.
Crochet Month brings all sorts of crochet related things to the surfaceincluding the Flamie Awards. If you haven't yet voted for your favorites, please go do itpaying extra special attention to Question #17, where the Aspen Mesh Dress was nominated!

Soft Linen is a blend of alpaca, wool and linen that combine to make a yarn, which is both soft and sturdy. Soft Linen is a smooth DK weight yarn that lends itself well to crochet. Pieces worked in Soft Linen will hold their shape, while remaining soft to the touch. This makes it a particularly good choice for accessories that will get a lot of use, like belts, shawls, scarves and mitts. Soft Linen is available in a palette of 19 refined, yet robust colors.
Kristen's Ruffly Scarf uses the basic crochet stitches, single, double, half-double and treble crochet. The eyelets and picots are created by using chain stitches, and there is one row that includes a decrease stitchsc3tog.
