#20 – Eisa Blanket Scarf by Pam Somner

With the weather getting colder and colder each day in my neck of the woods, the next installment of CAL – Crochet A Long’s Design-a-Scarf Challenge CAL has come at the perfect time! The 7th pattern in this CAL has been designed by Pam Somner of Cider House Crochet!

The Eisa Blanket Scarf is made using the overlay mosaic crochet technique. If you want a warm and snuggly scarf, then look no further, this is the one for you! It will not only make a great wintery fashion statement but it is oh so functional because the scarf will keep the winter chill from making its way down your coat!

And like some of the other mosaic scarf patterns we’ve seen, with a little planning and ingenuity, you could easily make a matching cowl or hat!

If you LOVE this pattern as much as I do then you will be excited to learn that the Eisa Blanket Scarf is just the first in a series of patterns that Pam will be releasing in the future! So……. you’ll need to keep an eye out for more projects coming very soon…..

Below you will find a designer sample picture as well as the testers samples and comments. I hope they will serve as inspiration for your future Eisa Blanket Scarf!!!

I enjoyed making this Overlay Moasic Blanket Scarf. It felt a daunting task, but I found great enjoyment once I got the rhythm of the stitches and pattern.
Loved doing it, for never having done this stitch/pattern before. I would certainly make another.

A few words from Elaine :

This is a beautiful design with detailed information and instructions. I used DK weight yarn but think a lighter weight yarn would work well. I also think this pattern would make a lovely table runner.

Pam has written a short bio for us to read so that we can get to know her a little better.

“My son chose my business name, Cider House Crochet, after our dog Cider.

I started crocheting in 2017 and did craft shows for a couple of years. In 2019 I opened my Ravelry and Etsy shops, focusing more of my attention on pattern writing. I have a particular love of Tunisian crochet, finding inspiration from both the crochet and knit world in my designs. “

Pam also has an online shop (it’s like a local Etsy) where she sells her ready-mades. (Link below)

And if you aren’t familiar with Pam’s patterns, please check out her Ravelry Store!! I was a tester for the Shiloh Tunisian Scarf and there is a matching hat too!! She’s got so many lovely patterns in tunisian, regular crochet and now mosaic crochet.

The pattern will be available for free free for a weeks time and then will be come a paid pattern in Pam’s Ravelry store (link below). Please click below for the pattern.

The pattern can now be purchased in Pam’s Ravelry Store and in her Etsy
