Zig Zag Striped Scarf - Free Pattern

Zig Zag Striped Scarf by Mary Jane Hall - Free Pattern

Back in 2006, not long after I had started designing professionally, a rep from Hobby Lobby contacted me, asking if I'd be interested in coming up with some original designs, using their yarn. The patterns would be in the form of "tear sheets". These are the free patterns you see in their stores. They offer them hoping you will use their yarn, which, by the way, is wonderful and high quality at an affortable price.  Other stores, such as Michaels and JoAnn Fabrics, do the same thing.  Of course I was thrilled and honored they considered me for this job.

I ended up doing a total of 7 designs using their beautiful yarns. That was such a fun time, as they would send me large boxes of different types of yarn, in many colors. Even though these were fun projects for me to do, many times I wished I could just go to the store and pick out other yarns with their "Yarn Bee" label, that I wanted to work with.

My patterns in the form of tear sheets are no longer in their 400+ stores across the nation, but for years you could find them there and on their website. I am not even sure if my patterns are at their site anymore, but I  found this one and will share it with you here.
You can substitute the yarn I used with any yarn of your choice. The yarn weight, your gauge and hook size do not matter when you're making a scarf. You can make it bulky or light weight and delicate. And if you want to make a "wrap" from this pattern, all you have to do is keep adding rows.

I hope you enjoy my pattern! If you share it, please link it back to me here, also giving me credit as the designer! Mary Jane Hall
