Turquoise Canyon Scarf & Free Pattern

Some times I go into the spare bedroom only to stare at my yarn stash. I like to imagine all the potential creativity dwelling in each skein. It seems a little crazy, but crochet is often like making a sculpture out of yarn rather than chiseling away at marble. I am forever reminded of reading The Agony and the Ecstasy in high school, and Michelangelo’s ability to know what laid inside a block of stone.

My stash contained two skeins of Red Heart Stellar in Comet. It’s bulky, and textured, with a little silver sparkle. Soft and squishy–perfect for a scarf! Finding a written pattern for a scarf was hard to come by. At least the *perfect* scarf pattern. I knew that any stitch detail would be lost in the fuzziness of the yarn. Therefore, I settled on a simply, lacy pattern that wouldn’t leave too many holes for wind to break through.
