I hope this blog post finds you well, I’m definitely feeling more energised by the blue skies and lighter nights.
I thought I would share a new pattern with you, at the weekend while Osmond was watching a particularly grim film for a Saturday night I decided to hook this fashion scarf, like many of my designs I’m not really sure what the end result will be but it turned into a quick and easy pattern and it can be made in one evening.
I used a 6mm hook and this yarn is supposed to be DK but it feels more like an Aran when it is being crocheted, an Aran yarn would be better to give it some structure.
Pattern Instructions (make 3, ensuring the length of each is the same)
Foundation chain, chain 141 stitches
Row 1: Starting in the second chain from dc in each stitch until the end, turn (140)
Row 2: Chain 3 (counts as tr) tr in next stitch and each stitch until the end, turn
(139, chain 3)
Row 3: Chain 1, dc in each stitch until the end, dc in the top of the ch 3, turn (140)
Row 4: Repeat row 2
Row 5: Repeat row 3, fasten off.
I found it easier to weave in the loose ends before joining them.
Joining the pieces
Row 1: Lie them down flat, join the yarn at the end of the first section working 7 dc stitches evenly across the end of the piece before joining each of the 2 remaining pieces. All 3 pieces should now be joined by a row of 21 dc stitches, turn.
Row 2: ch 1, dc in each stitch until the end, fasten off.
Once the 3 pieces are joined, the next stage is to plait them, I found it easier to lie them on the floor to do this. It may take a little trial and error, don’t plait it too tightly however as it a not lie correctly.
Once you are happy with your plait repeat rows 1 and 2 from above.
To finish off you could ss the ends together or sew an even seam, whichever you prefer.
Have fun hooking this project, if you need any help send me a message, I would love to see the end result.
Thank you for taking the time to read this. Happy hooking x
