But first, let's have a look at said scarf:
Isn't it just lovely? I absolutely LOVE the vibrant multicoloured main section and how the 'dip-dyed' effect of the two dark purple ends brings balance to the random colours of the middle.
So, for this pattern, I used:
Colour A (main section): Katia City, shade 951
Colour B ('dip-dyed' ends): Akiko by Louisa Harding Yarns, Currant (discontinued)
A 6mm crochet hook
UK terminology: back loop (bl), chain (ch), half treble (htr) = US half double crochet (hdc)
Tension (not critical): 10x10cm = 16 stitches x 8 rows
Finished scarf measures roughly 16x180 cms
- Ch2 counts as htr throughout unless otherwise stated
- All htr are worked in the BACK LOOP (bl) of the stitch from the previous row, EXCEPT in row 1.
With colour B, chain 27.
Row 1: htr in 3rd chain from hook, htr in next stitch from previous row to end, ch2, turn (25 stitches)
Row 2-23: *htr in bl of next stitch to end, ch2, turn*
Row 24: htr in bl of next stitch to end, fasten off
Row 25: change to colour A, make a standing htr (or rejoin yarn and ch2) in bl of first stitch from previous row, repeat * to *
Row 26-121: repeat * to *
Row 122: repeat row 24
Row 123: change to colour B, make a standing htr (or rejoin yarn and ch2) in bl of first stitch from previous row, repeat * to *
Row 124-145: repeat * to *
Row 146: repeat row 24
Weave in ends and block gently.
Here you go, one dead easy pattern for a stylish scarf. Do let me know what you think and if you spot any mistakes or anything unclear.
