When I asked Moogly readers last year what they wanted to see in a 2015 crochet-along (aka CAL), the majority voted for a year long afghan square CAL. And it’s begun, and you can check out the latest block HERE. But a lot of readers also were interested in short-term, quicker mini CALs – so I’ve decided to do 4 quick CALs this year, one for each season!
I love playing with new yarns! One of the yarns I got to play with recently was Adriafil’s Cortina, which came all the way from Italy (you may have spotted it in the recent Hit Hat Giveaway). Well of course me playing with yarn means a new free pattern for all of you – introducing Scarfati!
At the Knit and Crochet Show last week, one of the first skeins of yarn I was handed was a bright pink ball of Red Heart Boutique Swanky. And I all I could think was, “Oooo, sparkles!” And everyone around me had the same reaction – so shiny! Well by lunch time I couldn’t wait to get started, and using the commemorative hook I’d also picked up that morning, I got to work on the Suddenly Sparkles Scarf!

As Carl Sagan famously said, “The nitrogen in our DNA, the calcium in our teeth, the iron in our blood, the carbon in our apple pies were made in the interiors of collapsing stars. We are made of starstuff.” And that applies double to the Starstuff Cowl crochet pattern!
