Nain Scarf inspiration
Recently I asked my email newsletter subscribers to let me have some feedback and answer a short survey into things they would like to learn or improve on in their crochet. One of the answers was the corner to corner technique. This then began a trip down the rabbit hole of creating things for me, but one of the final finished pieces is this easy corner to corner granny scarf pattern. While I am not sure that this is exactly what my readers had in mind, once the idea took hold I could not let it go!
This is also the general reasoning behind the name of this corner to corner scarf pattern – Nain, which translated from Welsh means ‘Granny’.
Corner to corner granny scarf yarn & materials
To create my corner to corner granny scarf I used 1 x Sultan Deluxe in Mojave Azurite from Hobbii. This is a 1000m/1092 yds gradient cake made in 100% Cotton. If you are new here, I’m a fan of gradient cakes as I love the colour flow. To find out more about this cake, and similar alternatives from Hobbii, check out the blog post here.
