Wasabi Squeeze Scarf

by Kate on April 5, 2011

Once I got stuck into this project, it hooked up really quickly. The pattern is a simple repeat that is easy to remember and I am all about mindless crochet, very theraputic.

The yarn is wonderful. Soft, springy and the colour is perfect.

Wasabi Squeeze Scarf

For those who are interested, I used one skein and the scarf measures 9″ x 50″ after blocking.

Ravelled here.

*edited to add* : a reader has altered me that the scarf pattern is now only free when purchased with a particular yarn.

Wow, that is a beautiful combination of color and pattern! I had to add it to my queue after seeing how lovely your scarf is. What did you think of Jitterbug? I have never used it before.

Hi Misty,

I LOVED using Jitterbug…it is just beautiful.

Look forward to seeing your scarf.

Would love to see your version Tan. Great to see you on Rav too x

So there is such a thing as mindless crochet? I thought that was only knitting (which is why I tend more towards it!). Love that colour – suits it’s name!


8 Kate April 5, 2011 at 8:25 am

There certainly is such a thing as mindless hooking! I love it!!


9 Linda at Roscoe's Ma April 5, 2011 at 8:20 am

Really pretty! Ditto on the mindless part. Thanks for sharing and including the details!


10 Kirsty April 5, 2011 at 8:26 am

It’s fabulous! Delicate & pretty. Great work.

Hi Kate, your scarf is truly gorgeous! I’ve just looked at the pattern on Ravelry and wondered whether the instructions for this pattern were written in UK or US crochet terms? Thanks! Fiona


12 Kate April 5, 2011 at 9:00 am

Hi Fiona, it is written in UK terms


13 andi April 5, 2011 at 10:08 am

So very pretty!!


14 Maggie April 5, 2011 at 10:12 am

so beautiful, love the colour!


15 Erica April 5, 2011 at 10:23 am

This is so beautiful! It looks like handmade lace. I so wish that I could crochet, but I have not had any luck in my attempts to learn.

Gorgeous Kate. I’ve been on the lookout for a basic scarf pattern (that’s nice) that I could try for a friends birthday coming up. Do you think this is suitable for a beginner with a bit of practice, or more intermediate level? I’ve only just taken up the hook, but am getting the hang of it.


17 Kate April 5, 2011 at 12:04 pm

You could without a doubt do it. It is the one pattern row just repeated, very easy x


18 gret April 5, 2011 at 4:33 pm

Thanks! x


19 Leah April 5, 2011 at 11:18 am

I’m in love! It’s beautiful!


20 Michelle April 5, 2011 at 3:28 pm

oh, Kate – it’s GORGEOUS! The color, the pattern, the yarn – everything! Utterly delicious x


21 Kate April 5, 2011 at 4:58 pm

Thank YOU! I love it too xx


22 Nanette April 5, 2011 at 6:15 pm

That is ‘strawdinry’ as the smallest would say. For someone who knows nothing of the hook it’s incredible that something like this could be thought of as mindless. Love it.
PS love the ballerina quilt too!


23 wendy April 5, 2011 at 9:09 pm

Gorgeous! It looks so pretty and delicate


24 Amanda April 7, 2011 at 7:55 am

That is really beautiful, I need to put this on my to-do list :)


25 Kate April 16, 2011 at 8:34 pm

As I’ve just put my sewing machine out of action, this comes at the perfect time! I love the “mindless” hooking projects, the ones where you can watch tv at the same time for a few hours and at the end of it all have a gorgeous OOAK article to wear :)


26 Fruitful Fusion April 17, 2011 at 5:49 am

This is SO gorgeous! I want to make one!!!


27 Chrystal September 6, 2011 at 11:50 am

Love the color and the pattern! I’m not a big fan of buying yarn online, so I’m hoping to find a lace-weight yarn that will work. :)


28 Elisabeth September 11, 2011 at 5:24 am

Do you sell these??


29 Karen September 24, 2011 at 4:47 pm

I was thrilled to repin ( Pinterest) your lovely lacy scarf…
It literally jumped off the page… I see little butterflies!
So nice to stop by… I Enjoy your style :)


30 yelena November 20, 2011 at 11:29 am

31 Tootie Parris December 21, 2011 at 3:27 am

32 Kate December 23, 2011 at 7:43 am

There is a link to the ravelry page where you will find the pattern.


33 Julie Kirby December 28, 2011 at 1:59 pm

Love this scarf!!!! would like to try my hand at it……Thank you for sharing! Looked at the pattern, I’m a beginner at crochet, so could you tell me what “dtr” is?


34 Fay September 2, 2012 at 1:12 am

I love this, I’ll be having a go at it for a Christmas present. I’ve put it on my blog here if that’s ok with you



35 anabel November 16, 2012 at 5:22 pm

anyone know where i can find the pattern nowadays? :(


36 Lynn March 25, 2013 at 4:02 pm

This “free” pattern is only available with the purchase (£17.50 + ??? for S&H to the US) of the Angel lace yarn.

It’s gorgeous, but I’ll pass.


37 Kate March 25, 2013 at 4:22 pm

Thanks Lynn.

Just to let you know, when I made the scarf the pattern was “free”. This has clearly changed so I will update my post.
