Frivola Scarves

frivola

Fall is finally here and it is time to start working on projects that keep us warm as well as fashionable.  Too warm for a traditional scarf? Well, combine easy crochet or knit with trendy Frivola yarn and “voila!” you have a light and stylish scarf, ready to wear.

Frivola yarn

Frivola, from Trendsetter, could be described as knitting or crocheting with sparkly poofs of color. The giant, ultra soft pom-pom balls are strung along a binder string to create an exotic novelty yarn.

Even though this yarn looks expensive, these scarf patterns are affordable for anyone who is ready to begin on holiday projects.  Frivola allows you to use simple techniques to create a complex look in a very short time.

Trendsetter Yarn

For the knitted version pictured in pinks and browns you will need 3 balls of your favorite color.  Then, just cast on 6 and knit until the yarn is gone.  For the crochet version pictured in solid brown you only need 1 ball!  Just click here for the pattern.

Knitters and crocheters will look twice as they pass you by wondering how you were able to create such a fun fall accessory. -B

    I’m sorry, I have more questions. the cocoon yarn I found online looks long rather than round (like the yarn in your picture). Also did you use more than one color to get the pink, brown and white? I can’t find those colors. Also, do you carry this yarn in your store? thank you.

    Hi, I am glad you are asking questions. The free pattern online actually calls for Cocoon, but we used Frivola from Trendsetter. We actually do carry this in our store and on our online shop. If you go to http://www.lbyarncoshop.com and type in Frivola in the “search” section at the top right of your screen it will pull up the colors. We do have some varigated colors like the brown pink and white pictured. Please order from us we would love to have your business, and we give free shipping for orders over $50!! Thank you and I am glad you like the scarves!

    I love this scarf but I have never knitted!! I would love to learn how to do this. Is there any instructions w/pictures available? Thanks!!!

    Cindy-We don’t have any pictures available on “how to” this scarf, but it is just a knit stitch on the knit version or a chain on the crochet version. We would love to show you in person if you are close to us. If not, all really need to do is learn to knit, it should only take a couple hours and a few hours of practice and you could totally make this scarf!
