Had a very busy week end, unlike many other weeks after we relocated to this part of the country.
Visited a friend almost 50 km away. The drive was good as we started early. Had break fast in the car! We all loved the drive.
Though the trip was planned to span the entire week end, had to change plans and cut it short. Not much crochet on Saturday!
Well, made up the loss on Sunday, though.
Progressing slowly (so slowly that my son is not very happy about the pace as the end product is meant for him!) with the Chocolate Basket (from my first post).… and started a new scarf for my Grandpa for his birthday.
The picture is not very clear due to the lighting :(. Will post a better picture when the scarf is finished.
It is a very easy project, the pattern is as follows:
You could use any yarn of your choice and a hook to match the yarn you use. I used Vardhman Rabbit Excel (DK weight) and a 5.0 mm hook. My scarf is 8 inches wide.)
You should know how to chain (Ch), do a SC (Single Crochet) and Double Crochet (DC).
Chain 34 (30 chains+4). [You could chain a multiple of 2 for starting chain and 4 chains at the end to count as the first DC.]
DC in fourth chain from hook, Ch 1, DC in the third foundation chain, Ch 1, DC in fifth foundation chain and so on till the end of the row. You will end the row with a DC. Ch 2 and turn.
Next row is the SC (Single Crochet) row. 1SC on the DC in the first row, 1 chain, continue till end of row. Chain 4, turn.
DC in first SC of Row 2, Chain 1, continue thus till end of row.
Repeat Rows 2 and 3 till the scarf is as long as you desire. Fasten off. [Mine is not long enough to fasten of….Might add a trim once the scarf is long enough.]
PS: Keep counting the number of stitches. I ended up with extra stitches and saw my scarf “grow sideways”!!! Had to RIP IT RIP IT RIP IT for almost 8 rows!!!! 😦
Do give this a try and please correct me if there are any errors in the pattern.
