“Metallic” Yarn

Brenda and Heather Yarns sent me a free yarn sample for this project. It’s their Unicorn Lite base, in the Cyclone colorway. Unicorn Lite is a blend of 65% superwash merino and 35% bamboo. The bamboo gives it a luxurious drape and an almost metallic sheen that you can’t get with the wool alone.

This is a generous, 840 yd skein with one gradient all the way through. Unlike some gradients, it’s a very smooth transition without distinct bands of color. The size of the skein allows for larger projects that really show off this gradual color change.

There was so much yarn in the skein that I ended up having to wind mine into 3 separate cakes – not because the yarn broke or anything, but because I only have a small ball winder. I probably could have managed it in 2 if I had made the first one bigger.

8 x 72 inches.


25 dc x 12 rows = 4 inches. Use pattern as gauge swatch – Rows 1-16 should measure about 8 inches x 4 inches.

Special Stitches

Chainless Starting Double Crochet (csdc): Pull working loop up to the height of a dc. Holding loop in place, twist hook forward and around loop to create a “yarn over”.

Creating the yarn over for a chainless starting double crochet

Insert hook into first stitch, yo and pull up a loop. You now have 3 loops on your hook. (Yarn over and pull through 2 loops) twice.

Finished chainless starting double crochet

The CSDC replaces the ch 3 at the start of a dc row. It creates a cleaner edge. If you prefer, you can work ch 3 (counts as a dc) instead of csdc wherever you see it.

Crossover Half Double Crochet (cohdc): Working around the previous three stitches, yarn over, insert hook in skipped stitch, yarn over and pull up a loop to the height of the current stitch.

    This is a beautiful scarf. This could easily be made for any gender. I like the idea of easily repeatable rows. Sometimes we just want to crochet without having to refer to a pattern for line by line directions. This is going on my list to make for Christmas gifts.
