Grab and go yarn pack and pattern for the Mystical Lanterns Crochet Scarf by Jane Crowfoot.
Jane has chosen 8 shades of Coop Knits Socks Yeah! for this design. The yarn is made from 75% Superwash Merino and 25% Nylon. This beautiful yarn is machine washable and beautifully hard-wearing. It has a really lovely drape quality to it.
The name of a repeated tessellating design, like the one Jane has used in this scarf, is called an 'Ogee' pattern in Arabesque design. It took Jane a few weeks to get the design of these blocks right; initially, she came up with loads of really complicated ways to create this motif, but in the end, it was so simple - funny how sometimes a design process can take so long and then the outcome can be so easy to make!
The pattern for the lantern shape motif is based on a granny hexagon pattern, but Jane has made a few changes to come up with the curved design the tessellates.
