Free Crochet Pattern – Loops and Ridges Scarf

Free crochet pattern coming your way! Although it’s August and we’ve had some recent heat waves, I can feel the mornings changing. That cool, crisp and refreshing air early in the morning as autumn begins to creep in. I absolutely love it. Summer is lovely but it’s never been my favourite. Autumn is a time of change, all things cozy and the perfect opportunity to dig out my cardigans and box of handmade scarves.

Inspired by the recent cool mornings, the Loops and Ridges scarf came about quite naturally as I was playing around with stitch combinations. This scarf is full of texture and cozy with a simple but fun sectioned repeat. I used WeCrochet Heatherly in the beautiful “Sweet Bing” colourway to make this lovely and eye catching project.

I also thought it would be a great opportunity to add another yarn review to the blog so I could share my experience with others.
