  1. Wow, thanks for this pattern. I need something to make me think that spring might actually show up sometime this year. I am going to try it right away.

  2. Arugula! I love it and now I have a name for the scarves I knitted for everyone for Christmas – your pattern and mine are so similar! Of course mine were in winter colors, so now I will have to make more in spring colors 🙂

  3. This is gorgeous. I can't wait to try my hand at this pattern. Thank you so much for you clear and concise patterns. I have recreated a couple of them for myself and they are always so easy to understand and follow. Much appreciated.

    1. Thank you for your super nice comment! Definitely let me know how yours turns out! Happy crocheting! 🙂

  4. I love your patterns! Thanks for posting them for free. My question is: do you allow items made from your patterns to be sold for profit with credit going to you for pattern?

  5. Loved this pattern from the moment I saw it on your site! I made one this past weekend (Fri night and finished on Sat) to wear to Easter Sunday church! I had a skein of Lion Brand cotton/bamboo #3 (light) in a springy pinkish/rose, and it worked perfectly with the pattern. I wore it with the length doubled and put the ends through the loop, which made a double ruffle around my neck and the 2 ends spiraled down the front.

  6. I absolutely love your patterns. However, they have to be the most difficult to download. I like having a picture with my pattern, but I have to paste yours to a word site and then print. Suggestions?

  7. Love your patterns! Still wondering if you allow items made from your patterns to be sold at craft sales and such? Please let me know. Thanks!

  8. I made your scarf this past weekend and it turned out great! Thank you so much for the pattern. I made a blog post about it, with a link back to you. Have a good week!

  9. This is a beautiful, versatile scarf! Can't wait to find my yarn (just moved) and give it a try!
    Thanks for the pattern!

  10. I love all of your patterns! They are beautiful and easy to crochet. A wonderful combination 🙂


    1. Finer yarn works really well with this pattern, to be sure though, try making a little swatch before beginning just to be sure it will look how you want it to look. Happy crocheting!

  11. Hi Jennifer, this is the second scarf I have made from your site, and I can say that I really loved it. Thanks again for another great pattern, and pretty scarf. As always, I will come back and try another one of your patterns!

  12. Thank you for this pattern I used Angel Hair yarn for this and it came out so pretty.
    Will be giving this as a gift for my mother.
    Thank you again

  13. I am wondering if I added some more rows to make the scarf wider, and added more chains to add length, and THEN did the ruffle in a way that would make the scarf twist on both ends, from about the clavical down, using xtra stitches worked in each stitch of the previous row thereby creating a loose curlicue effect? I would use more than one color too, for interest as it gently twists. Do you think it would work? Excited here!

  14. Just finished making this scarf using Red Heart Super Saver in Buff. Love it! So proud of myself! Made it in just 2 nights. Plan to make more. Love this pattern. Thank you so much for the free pattern. So easy to make.

  15. I just made this with Red Heart Super Saver in Macaw. It is beautiful! Can't wait to make more as gifts! Thanks for the free pattern!

  16. Hello Jennifer, I made two of this piece in different colors. I posted in my face book page and wrote ready for sale and taking more orders. my sister-in law ordered 3 for her and for my neices ( of course I won't be charging her and she knew that ).then my friend wants one. this piece will be a hit. I want to inform about this since that half of my sale will go towards our Church Building Fund ( as we still needs money to complete the constructions.I posted your name and your website as the designer. thank you for the free pattern.

  17. I spent a pleasant evening yesterday making this with some emerald green sock wool (which has a nice bouncy stretch, I find). It's the perfect accessory for Saint Patrick's day next week.

  18. I did this in black with sequins. It's beautiful. It is such a simple idea that looks so much more than the little trouble it is to do. Also, no bulk around the neck. Love it.

  19. I found your pattern last year and have made several. I just love it! Has just enough ruffle to be feminine, but not too "fru=fru". Thank you very much! Pamela Muma
