Red Heart's New Grande Yarn Review and A Free Crochet Pattern

This yarn is completely different
 from the Old Grande Yarn.
There are nine different colors, all solids.
 I chose the Foggy Grey.

It is super bulky like the old Grande, 
But it is also Super thick and light at the same time!
The new Grande is beautiful with a wonder sheen to it.

When I began to Crochet With it, 
It was so easy to work with that it didn't even feel
like a bulky yarn.
It was light and airy.
I searched on line for a few crochet patterns
 but found only 1 crochet pattern.
I did not care for it, so I designed one of my own.

I wanted to show how pretty the yarn is, 
and how easy the yarn is work with.
And it is not heavy to wear.
I decided on designing an infinity scarf, because,
 I seem to always loose scarves that are not attached.

Hook -P
Yarn -2 skeins of Red Heart NEW Grande (6)
( I used the Foggy Grey and it takes all of both skeins )
1 Big Fun Button
Yarn Needle with a big eye

Stitched_ Chain (ch)
Single Crochet (sc)
sk - skip
blo - back loops only

Scarf measures - 6 inches wide X 48 inches around

Ch 103, join in a circle being careful not to twist the ch.
The number of stitches will be the same through out the pattern.
Ch 1 at the beginning of each round counts as your first st.

R : 1 - 1 sc on the 2nd ch from the hook,
* ch 1, sk the next ch, 1 sc in the next ch*
Repeat from * to * around, join,

R : 2 - ch 1, Working in the blo, 
*sk the next st, 1 sc in the next st, ch 1*
Repeat From * to *, join

R : 3-7  - Repeat R : 2, join and tie off.

Bow -
R : 1 - Ch 19, 1 sc on the 2nd ch from the hook,
* ch 1, sk the next ch, 1 sc in the next ch*
Repeat from * to * around,
ch1,(ch1 does not count as  st) turn

R : 2 -  Working in the blo, 
*sk the next st, 1 sc in the next st, ch 1*
Repeat From * to *, ch1, turn

R : 3-6 - Repeat R ; 2, tie off and weave in ends.

With a 24 inch strand of matching yarn,
 tie around the center of the bow and cinch it in tight. 
Winding around  till  all of the yarn is wound around, 
weave in your ends.

With matching yarn sew on a fun button, then sew on scarf.
By stitching this Scarf in rounds, 
you get a nice striping effect, 
but if you prefer not to have the striping effect, 
you make  the back side of the scarf the outside. 

I also think this is a great scarf for guys, 
just leave off the bow and 
you have a comfy warm scarf,
that anyone would wear.
