The Stashbuster Blarf by Esther Sandrof is a large-sized, packable and cozy scarf that can double as a light blanket. We changed ours into a wide cowl by seaming the ends together which works well! It looks great however you decide to wear it. Try it long or double it up for more warmth with layers.
The pattern is designed as a stashbuster to use up all those delicious little balls of leftover yarn that we can’t bear to get rid of. We actually used 2 hanks (one of each color) of Plymouth Yarns Merino Textura, a 62% Superwash Fine Merino Wool and 38% Merino Wool. This yarn is a super soft, slubby, thick and thin yarn in a worsted weight and the semi-solid colors just add more vintage appeal to the cowl.
The pattern includes four linear motifs that are available in written form as well as charted. If you haven’t used a crochet chart before this is a great pattern to start with because the pattern is easy to remember. To take a look at the pattern just click here!
