2Sea, a pattern for 2 scarfs (English, in US terms)
2Sea, the pattern.
Sometimes crocheting is very strenuous, just think about all that count. Or crochet with multiple colours. Or when you get ‘help’ from child, pet or from the clean-up gnome (Where is my crochet hook!). Too much stress. Fortunately, there are also patterns where you can hook stress-free, do not think, just go with the flow! Look for nice yarn and you’re completely zen.
Now I had ordered yarn for this pattern: Scheepjes Stardust, in the colour Aquarius. The colour of the sea. And that with a touch of glitter … I am in love with this beautiful yarn. While I was designing the scarf, the yarn became more and more liquid. The wave of the water can be seen in the pattern. And as a sea girl, I am very happy about it. Crocheting the scarf was so soothing and inspiring that I immediately put a second scarf on the needle. The pattern has two variants, they are in one pattern. They all belong together. The name of the pattern was therefore logical: 2Sea.
The pattern is very forgiving, making a mistake is not so bad. Because Scheepjes Stardust is tricky to frog, you can just hook up with this pattern and camouflage the mistake in the next round. I have noticed that the mistakes in the pattern makes the scarf more beautiful. So if you make a mistake, shrug your shoulders and crochet the tour as described in the pattern.

Tips for crocheting the 2Sea scarfs
Please read carefully what the pattern says and look in the crochet-diagram if you don’t understand it, you can contact me. Making a mistake isn’t something to worry about, almost every mistake is camouflageable in the next tour. Just make the stitch/stitches that were supposed to be there “on top” of the flaw. It gives the scarf a unique character, just like the sea.
IMPORTANT to know:
The 2Sea Scarf is designed for crochetneedles size 4,0mm/ G. If you want to use a different kind of yarn it’s important to know the you crochet the first row a multiple of 8 and 7 in additional. For example: 47 stitches (5 multipled by 8, plus 7). If you need any help, plaese contact me.
Have fun crocheting!
