Ask Me Monday #228: Granny Stripe Bandit Scarf

Granny Stripe Bandit Scarf

This week on Ask Me Monday, we’re making a Granny Strip Bandit Scarf. This is a great, springtime project to be used with sport-weight yarn in one, two, or even twelve colors (stash-diving, anyone?)

In this episode, I talk a bit about crochet gauge, show you a few hook options from Knitter’s Pride, and get you started (and finished) on this project with a tutorial on Extended Triple Crochet and Picot Bind-off.  Enjoy!

    not sure how to count for gauge on this piece. I am using Elesebeth Lavold silky wool and I am using 3.75mm/US F. can you help?

    Hello!
    I am no professional, I love the granny stitch it is my favorite because of quickness and flexibility. From what I know and understand you may use any hook size you like, make garment as large or small as you like and no gauge needed… (another reason I love this stitch). I am self taught and gauge is not something I learned well. Hope this helps!
