Ruffled Scarf - Free Pattern

Ruffled Scarf by Mary Jane Hall
I designed this scarf for Hobby Lobby a few years ago. They asked me to do this so they could use it as one of their tear sheets they give away at the stores. Of course yarn companies do this so people will hopefully use their yarn. Hobby Lobby's line of yarn is called Yarn Bee. Maybe you've seen it or even used it because they have over 500 stores nationwide.

This was a fun time for me as a freelance designer because they'd send me huge boxes of Yarn Bee yarn, which by the way, I love! If you've never used their yarns you would be surprised at how beautiful they are. I noticed that they don't carry quite as much of Yarn Bee they used to, but you won't be disappointed. I just love the yarn I used for this scarf. If you're looking for a yarn with some stretch (as for a garment) this is the perfect yarn, because it actually has some elastic in it!

They carry all the other brands like Bernat, Patons, Lion Brand, Omega nylon, Red Heart, etc and they carry lots of crochet books too. I had fun going through the beautiful yarns and they just let me decide what I wanted to make & what yarn looked best for that project. I believe I did 8 tear sheets for them altogether, which were also a free pattern on their website at one time. Since I've become aware they are no longer showing the patterns online, I decided to go ahead and post them here.
