Lori’s Bailey Hooded Scarf Crochet Project
Made by: Lori Hooker (lori.hooker)
Pattern: Bailey Hooded Pocket Scarf Crochet Pattern by Kristin Omdahl
Yarn: Be So Easy Yarn, color Raspberry
This was another quick and fun project! I used color Raspberry. I made this one a little shorter than the pattern called for and made the pockets a little bit smaller too.
Note: Be So Easy Yarn is discontinued. Here are a few alternative #5 bulky weight yarn substitution ideas:
Brava Bulky: #5 bulky weight 100% premium acrylic; 136 yds per 100 gms; suggested needle size US 10-11. I think the drape and weight of this yarn would be comparable to Be So Easy Yarn. It comes in 29 colors and retails for $3.49 per skein.
Caron O’Go Yarn: #5 bulky weight 100% acrylic self striping yarn; 228 yds per 6.4 oz ring; suggested needle size US 10. I think the drape and weight of this yarn would be comparable to Be So Easy Yarn. And I think the color striping would be comparable to Be So Vivid Yarn, too.
