Hello! I had a great time hooking this looooong skinny scarf over the past three days. I hooked it as a gift for a friend and then . . . fell in love with it. Oops, I feel so guilty but it really livens up my wardrobe and I have decided to keeping it. The good news is that I have already started a new scarf with a dotty pattern for my friend. Yay, I have been waiting for the right project to come along so that I could finally try out the "Squaring the Circle" pattern in US Treble crochet.
I love how this scarf and my printed tights liven up a winter's day!
Skinny Scarf Pattern
To begin: chain 350
Row 1: sc in 2nd ch from hook, sc in each of the next 348 chs, ch 1 (to turn) (349 sc)
Next few rows depending on the required width as per personal preference: sc in each sc across, then ch 1 to turn (349 sc). This scarf consists of 12 rows of sc
Edging: sc in 1st stitch. Then * sc, hdc, sc in next sc to form small shell. Skip next sc * Repeat between * The shell is thus hooked in every second sc of the previous row.
Then: Turn the scarf and crochet one row sc in the foundation row.
Repeat the edging.
Hook Size: 5mm
