Welcome to The Scarf a Month Club!
with Amy and Rhondda (me!)
I asked on my Facebook page at the end of December 2015, what type of patterns YOU the Crocheter wanted designed for this year and one of the popular replies was Crochet Scarves (…and cowls) to use for gifts this year.
We aim to please!
Amy and I decided we would start The Scarf a Month Club and each month of 2016 Amy and I will each share 1 free crochet pattern for a crochet scarf, or cowl. This means by the end of December you will have 24 free crochet patterns for scarves to choose from!
The best part of this is – you will get to help us decide some of the details about the scarves we make – so if you have a special stitch you would like to see showcased or specific style, or even size (length/width) you would like us to include – let us know by leaving a message on one of The Scarf a Month Club posts.
The Scarf a Month Club posts will be available on the second Sunday of every month – meaning the final scarf patterns will be available on December 11th giving you plenty of time if you needed to make them for last minute Christmas Gifts.
If you would like to share your progress please feel free to add Ravelry Project Pages for the scarves you make! Each pattern post will include a specific pattern link to Ravelry so you can add your own project pages!
You can also join our Facebook Group, Crochet With Us CAL Group You can share your progress, ask questions and get help!
We have also set up this #hashtag to use on Instagram – so if you love to share on Instagram share your projects by tagging us @amyramnarine and/or @oombawkadesign and use the hashtag #ScarfoftheMonthClub!

Here is a little close up of this lovely, squishy, soft and pretty scarf (can you tell I really like this one?)
Beginning with Color A – Sample used Grape
R1: Ch 219 line up the beginning and end of R1 and make sure it does not twist. 
You will be working in continuous rounds. This means you do not slip stitch to join, or chain any additional stitches unless specifically indicated.
R2: You will be working into the back bump of the chain for this entire round. *1 sc in the first st, 1 dc in the next st, 1 sc in the next st**. Rep from * to ** 72 more times. 
R3: Work (1 Blsc, 1 BLdc, 1 BLsc) in each Bldc around. Skip all other stitches. 
R4-R13: Rep R3. Making the last BLsc of R13 a BLsl st. Finish off with an invisible join and weave in ends.
Take your infinity scarf and rotate it so the initial starting chain is now your working row. Weave in the initial starting chain end neatly without disturbing the starting chain loops which still remain. Basically weave the end through the work, not the starting chain.
You will now begin your contrast color rounds using Color B. The sample uses Black.
NOTE: Locate a dc stitch in your finished work and run your finger straight down from the dc to the starting chain row. The reason we are taking the time to line up the stitches as close to the dc as possible is to mimic the fabric you have already created above using Color A.
R1: Attach Color B using a single crochet join, in the bl of the ch immediately before the ch which lined up with the dc st (see the note above). 1 BLdc in the next st, 1 BL sc in the next st. *1 BLsc in the next st, 1 BLdc in the next st, 1 BLsc in the next st**. Rep from * to ** 71 more times. 
R2: Work (1 Blsc, 1 BLdc, 1 BLsc) in each Bldc around. Skip all other stitches. 
R3-R9: Rep R2. Making the last BLsc of R19 a BLsl st. Finish off with an invisible join and weave in ends.
Here are some more photos – different sides – different angles – different wraps…
