Beautiful Crochet Scarf

SAM_0815



What a beautiful infinity scarf I just finished.  It’s so nice.  Soft and textured and long enough to do a double twist loop around the neck or worn as a longer single loop. I made it for my daughter who cannot wait for it to turn cold so she can sport it at school.

I crochet(ed) in the vertical, then stitched the ends together.  After that, I trimmed both lengthwise edges separately in the round.  That lovely stitch you see there is Hubert’s “Cross Hatch.”

CROSS HATCH

Ch a multiple of 7 plus 1.

Foundation Row:  Work 2 dc in 4th ch from hook, skip 3 ch, 1 sc next ch, *ch 3, 1 dc in each of the next 3 chs, skip next 3 ch, sc in next ch, rep from * across, turn.

Row 1:  Ch 3, 2 dc in first st, *skip next 3 dc, [1 sc, ch 3, 3 dc] in the next ch-3 space, skip next st, rep from * across, ending skip ast 2 sts, sc in the top of turning ch.

Rep Row 1 for pattern.

I don’t really read patterns well.  I just follow the visual which is so much more comforting.

Then, I did a 5dc with 1 sc in between all the way around the edges.  Lovely.  Just lovely.

One thing about the yarn color, I used  Red Heart Soft Grape, although the photos are lighter and look more like the Berry.  In person, the Grape is darker.  I tried to adjust the color but it was a no go and I didn’t want to wait to take an outside photo before I posted this.
