“It’s so great when an easy pattern can look so stunning!” says greyhoundgrandma of Crochetville’s forum. I couldn’t agree more! That’s one of the reasons I created Easy Beauty Chain Scarf. I wanted a pattern that would be simple yet beautiful and fun to crochet. And I needed it to fit on a postcard!
This postcard was available for free at our trade show booths in 2012, and now it is available as a free PDF download at Crochetville and Ravelry. Amy created this year’s postcard scarf for 2013, X Marks the Spot. You can see a sneak peek of it here on Facebook. And you can get it by visiting our booth, Crochetville Presents Red Heart, at this year’s STITCHES Events and Knit and Crochet Shows.
So… last year I ran into Jennifer E Ryan of Celtic Knot Crochet at the Manchester, NH Knit and Crochet Show. And she saw the Easy Beauty Chain Scarf sample (pictured here) in our booth and asked if she could teach it, and of course I said yes!
I’m not going to tell you everything about Jennifer because she’ll be joining us for our designer blog tour during National Crochet Month, and I’ll write more then. But for now I’ll just say she does gorgeous things with crochet + thread + Celtic knots! I’ll never forget the beautiful crocheted Celtic knot necklace she was wearing when I first met her.
Jennifer taught Easy Beauty Chain Scarf as a Ladies Night Out Crochet Class at her local craft store, and she’s given me permission to share her photos here. At the time of her class, Red Heart Boutique Unforgettable yarn (featured in the original scarf) wasn’t yet available everywhere, so she substituted Yarn Bee’s “Danielle” yarn with beautiful results.
