Being an avid crocheter, I am often asked about what kinds of yarns I use. Some people don't like acrylic or polyester yarns and want natural fibers like cotton.
But to find brightly colored natural fiber yarns at the craft store is a challenge, and if you go to a gourmet yarn store, they can be really expensive. I decided to make my own!
What you need is Tulip One-Step Dye in assorted colors.
They came out gorgeous! Follow my tutorial above to see how I did this.
To crochet the scarf, I used a "J" hook, I chained 70, then did double stitches on one side and single on another. For every row thereafter, I used a different color of yarn. I alternated between single and double stitched rows. Don't forget to save some extra for the fringe!
See that sparkle in there? That is sparkly eyelash yarn - it's polyester, but I couldn't help but add it in for a little light and shimmer!
