Skinny Scarf

OK over on FiberFlux I found THIS pattern for a skinny scarf. I really liked it, thought "oh that looks easy so I'll make it," and I grabbed some yarn and began stitching.

Here's what I have so far:

The problem I seem to have with my scarf is how it tilts uphill to the right. I'm not sure why it's doing that. Her scarf stitches look perfectly straight and I'm not sure what I've done to make mine tilted.

Got any ideas? Or should I just go with it and incorporate that into my scarf?

That said, if I can get this figured out, I had a GREAT idea with this. Stitch up a whole boatload of these in various colors - say I do some in this sangria color, and some in red, and some in violet, etc - and then find a way to sew them or crochet them together to make an afghan! Sort of like a granny square afghan or mile-a-minute afghans. I may try that with some scrap yarn and do a couple of sample or test strips. I think I'll do that this weekend...


  1. Hmmm, that is an interesting predicament...perhaps the turning chains are a bit loose/tight? Are you using natural fibers? Maybe a little blocking might help. That being said, it is gorgeous! Love those colors!!

  2. Not natural fibers; this is Michael's CraftSmart yarn. It's acrylic. Maybe blocking will help once I get it done. I'm still considering trying to make strips of this and putting it together as an afghan, similar to Mile a Minute crochet
