Here Comes The Sun Scarf by Melu Crochet

Here is my #HereComesTheSun project, for a challenge by @hobbii_yarn ‘to draw inspiration from the color that reminds us the most of Easter ✨ YELLOW ✨ ‘
I’ve taken so much inspiration from this yarn, the colour sequence works so well with a side to side construction! I have used a filet to add small holes that the sun shines through and modified the usual bobble pom poms to be smaller. I’m really enjoying it! ☀️😁🙌.

Ok to be honest when I first heard of this challenge I was a bit unsure of what I would do, my first thoughts were ‘oh no yellow!’ But when I thought about it a bit more and looked at all my projects I realised that I use lots of different shades of yellow and I really like mustard! 💛


As you can probably tell I am very ‘in’ to colour changing yarn, and when I saw this gorgeous Colorina it was the answer to my problem. I really like colour changing yarn as it help helps you create something coordinated and well blended without the worry of picking out colours and making sure they go together and never forget- only two ends 🤣👏🙌
I’m really inspired by this yarn and am excited to get experimenting!

Also I have been singing “Here comes the Sun” ever since I have been asked to do this! (Sorry family 🎶👩🏻‍🎤🤣)

I’ve enjoyed experimenting with this beautiful @hobbii_yarn Colorina, a mini bobble pom pom is evolving!!

Materials 

5.5mm hook

2 x 50g Hobbii Colorina – I used Spring Street (11)

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 2 skeins of Hobbii Colorina with a 5.5mm hook. Use the first 50g for the increase, and then use the second 50g for the decrease – this will make sure there is no waste and you don’t run out. At the apex there are 42 tr stitches, giving a measurement for the scarf of 229cm (90 inch) x 30cm (12 inch) (including mini pom poms). 

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.

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.
