Striped Crochet Scarf & Dachshund Puppy

This week I was working on a really cute scarf. I crocheted it with orange and black yarn for a really great October look. Being that my daughter's favorite color is orange this scarf was perfect for her!


I found the free pattern  here which you can use by clicking on the link from Red Heart. They call it the Super Easy Scarf Crochet Pattern, and it really is pretty simple to make.  (*updated 11-12-12 : I have since figured out that this is simply what is known as a moss stitch. Two rows one color, two rows the next. That is what creates this cute zig-zag. After your base chain, you simply do a single crochet in second third chain and then a chain, single crochet in space, chain, repeat ending in a single crochet, chain two and turn, repeating working the single crochet in each space.
For a tutorial there are many U-tube videos, or Google Moss Stitch Crochet.)

I am happy I can make this for my girl!
We chose it because of the zig zag look to it. Looks great Orange and Black!


I added a black border all the way around and an extra row of black on each end. It really needed that to give it a more polished and finished look.

So did you notice the puppy?
Yes, we have a new puppy in our lives.
His name is Hunter and he is 11 weeks old! Isn't he just a darling!


His big Brother Bear is so happy to have a new little brother!

Today the weather is just a perfect Fall day here in Colorado!
 I am going to go outside and spend it with family and pooches. 
What a blessing indeed. Hope you are having a great and wonderful day!

Blessings,
Little Susie Home Maker

  14. You did such a lovely job on making that scarf. I really like the contrast of the black and orange colors together. Your daughter certainly did a wonderful job of modeling her new scarf. :)

    I have to admit, Hunter is pretty adorable. I am a cat person, so I'm not into dogs too much, but his little face looks so sweet. I hope you and your family are enjoying your new little doggie.

    Blessings to you. :)

    Welcome little Hunter to your home. We had a doxie that looked just like him for many years. Her name was Katie. Dauschunds are my favorite dog...They're smart and so cute.
