revised crochet scarf pattern – anyone willing to test?

Many years ago I wrote a pattern for a triangular crocheted scarf. I made it in cotton and used a contrasting colour for the edging. One of my lovely neighbours, Lindsay, modelled it for me at the time.

The plan was to make up a kit, including the cotton and hook, but it petered out – as so many of my plans are wont to do! I forgot all about it until yesterday when I was going through old files on my laptop and it seemed like a good idea to revise the pattern using acrylic instead of cotton for a change. It works up really quickly and I’ve already finished it (it’s being blocked right now).

Before I think about what next to do with it, I’d really like to find two people who would be prepared to make it. I’ve amended the instructions here and there, and may well have overlooked some things. If you make it using the same yarn for the scarf and the edging, it uses approximately 80g altogether (of acrylic, that is – I used Stylecraft DK). It might also lend itself to a scrappy look, I’m not sure. You’d also need a 4mm crochet hook.

If anyone is interested please email me at and I’ll send the instructions as a pdf. TIA!

      I have two testers now, going to see what they make of it before I do anything else. When it comes to making my own things, I am *not* a perfectionist and always happy to find a work-around. But if someone is going to pay for something, it has to be quality-controlled first ;)

    Hi Jill. I remember testing this pattern for you. I loved making your scarf pattern. I ran onto the notes that I took all those many years ago, not too long ago. :) I can’t wait to see how it turns out with acrylic.

      You did, and it is still called the Tamara scarf <3
      I did it in acrylic and came across a couple of things that didn't feel right re the instructions, so made some revisions. I still wear the one I first made, in cotton, and it's still lovely :)

      Hi there! I have three people working on this right now, one of whom (my best friend) has already told me that corrections are needed. I think I’d better wait until I can iron out all the problems before sending it to anyone else !!!
