Dolce Rainbow Scarf by Melu Crochet

Lucky me, I was sent this beautiful Dolce Cashmere yarn by Hobbii as part of their #HobbiiBlackFriday collaboration. I was really excited to experiment with it and bring out the fabulous gradual colour change.

Dolce Cashmere yarn by Hobbii in ‘Perfect Rainbow (01)

An excellent thing about crocheting with colour changing yarn is that your projects are very portable- only one ball of yarn to carry around with you and no tangling:

Woohoo I’ve started my Hobbii Dolce cashmere 😍 love a bit of car crochet! 🧢 πŸš™ πŸ§ΆπŸš—πŸ§ΆπŸŽπŸ§ΆπŸš“πŸ§ΆπŸš•

It’s so exciting when you get on to the next colour

And especially when the colour change is so gradual

I have decided on the name Dolce Rainbow Scarf

This is a quick and easy pattern, the pom pom edging is worked as you go along so it is a great pattern for using colour change yarn, as the pompoms will match the colour of your stripes. Unlike tassels or sewn on pom-poms, you don’t need to worry about them coming off.

Materials 

4mm hook

200g (1 cake) Hobbii Dolce Cashmere – I used Perfect Rainbow (01)

Yarn Needle

Size

This triangular pattern is worked from side to side, increasing until you have the desired height at the apex of the triangle, and then decreasing. The scarf in the photo was made using 1 cake of Hobbii Dolce Cashmere with a 4mm hook. Use the first 100g for the increase, and then use the second 100g for the decrease – this will make sure there is no waste and you don’t run out. At the apex there are 55 tr stitches, giving a measurement for the scarf of 260cm(102 inch) x 45cm(16 inch) (including bobbles). 

Any yarn weight can be used, hook size should be adjusted accordingly for the recommended size for your yarn- but remember this will affect the finished size. To ensure you make the most of a special skein, weigh it, half the weight then use the first half of the skein for the increase, second half of the skein for the decrease. 

Weighing your yarn


I use my digital scales all the time to work out how much yarn I need in patterns -but some people are really surprised when I tell them! How do you do it?!

On to the pink πŸ˜πŸ’—

So soft and with such vibrant colours, this yarn is such a pleasure to use!

On to the purple πŸ’œ on to the decrease now:
