This 2021 Just Another Day Scarf Pattern ( Waffle Stitch Scarf ) is my May Scarf of the Month CAL contribution. Get it for free in the post below.
Our “Stay At Home Order” has been extended (again). I’m sure I’m not the only one here that feels like lately, every tomorrow is just another day under house arrest. Hopefully it will get warmer soon so we can start spending more time outside in our yard again (it’s been cold, dreary and windy these last few weeks).
Until then I am working away at some half finished WIPs I have…but I need Netflix to release some more new shows because I’ve run out of things to watch/listen to while I am crocheting. I enjoy series more than movies and I am really loving mysteries, British crime shows and I LOVED Shadow and Bone.
I think I might need to switch over to audiobooks soon. Anyone out there know of any really good audiobooks? I really loved the A Discovery of Witches books – so I may listen to those again but if you have any favorites that I should check out, leave me a message in the comments to let me know. Thanks! Rhondda

2021 Just Another Day Scarf – Waffle Stitch Scarf
Last month I had the opportunity to try the Caron Jumbo Yarn for the first time. It really did become a new favorite for me! I ordered some more so I could make this month’s scarf using it too. I love how the yarn is full (not flat) and it has structure (it isn’t too soft to hold it’s shape). The Ombre version of the yarn takes all the guesswork out of which colors go well with each other and transitions seamlessly (no extra ends to sew in) between them.

Multiple of 4 + 3 (Understanding Stitch Multiples)
When I work into the foundation chain, I prefer working into the back bar (back bump) of the chain. You can work under the back loop only if you prefer.
The initial ch-3 counts as the first dc of the row. This means you do not work into the stitch directly beneath it because it is taking the place of the stitch that would have been worked there.
You may customize the length by working the repeat of R2-R3 as many, or as few, times as you wish.
