KATIA AUTUMN IRREGULAR SCARF

KATIA AUTUMN IRREGULAR SCARF


If you have been following my blogs, you’ll know that recently I’ve been gifted with a lot of yarn.  My first lot of yarn was in the wonderful Katia Jaipur Mercerised cotton yarn and a second lot is from Debbie Bliss Cotton Denim DK yarns.

I am sure you enjoyed my first creation with this lovely Katia yarn at https://shyamanivas.blogspot.in/2017/04/katia-crop-top.html
Of course, as always, at the end of this blog are lots of links for my earlier projects. 

I was keen on making this an irregular scarf, after the huge success of my irregular Spring scarf with the similar yarn.  I was unable to find a suitable pattern that would offset both the colors as well as the light feel of this yarn, and chanced on this You Tube tutorial for a knitted scarf.  I have tried to adapt the idea here using crochet.
Thanks for joining me once again as we work on and discover this new pattern together. J

Materials usedToday I’ve used ~ 100 gms of the lovely Katia Jaipur Mercerised cotton yarn with a 2 mm crochet hook
For Indians : The Katia Jaipur cotton yarn is a little like our Indian Red Rose knitting cotton in thickness.

Katia Jaipur Mercerised cotton available online right here.  Click the convenient link on the top right hand side of this blog.

For this awesome pattern, as I mentioned before, I was inspired by a free knitting tutorial I found on You tube.  This is not in English, by the way, but for those who need a visual, the language does not matter, I guess. Anyway, here’s the link for the knitted version at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XhEaSvVMpdo&feature=share

As I am using a pretty thin yarn, I am going to work in hdc.  If you are working with a thicker yarn and larger hook, you could work this same pattern using sc.

Start : with 6 fsc. Turn.

Row 1 : hdc in the 1st fsc and in each fsc till end. Turn. (6 sts)

Row 2 : (Increase row) : hdc in the 1st 4 hdc ; 2 hdc each in the last 2 sc.
Turn. (8 sts)

Row 3 : hdc in the 1st hdc and in each hdc till end. Turn. (8 sts)

Row 4 : (Increase row) : hdc in the 1st 6 hdc ; 2 hdc each in the last 2 sc.
Turn. (10 sts)

Row 5 : hdc in the 1st hdc and in each hdc till end. Turn. (10 sts)
                                       
Row 6 : (Hole row) : hdc in the 1st hdc ; (ch 1, sk next hdc, hdc in the next hdc) ; rep (to) 2 times ; [ch 1, sk next hdc, 2 hdc in the next hdc] ; 2 hdc in the last hdc. Turn. (8 hdc ; 4 ch-1 sps)

Row 7 : hdc in the 1st 4 hdc ; (hdc in the next ch-1 sp ; hdc in the next hdc) ; rep (to) till end. Turn. (12 sts)
                                       
Row 8 : (Increase row) : hdc in the 1st 10 hdc ; 2 hdc each in the last 2 sc.
Turn. (14 sts)

Row 9 : hdc in the 1st hdc and in each hdc till end. Turn. (14 sts)
                                       
Row 10 : (Increase row) : hdc in the 1st 12 hdc ; 2 hdc each in the last 2 sc.
Turn. (16 sts)

Row 11 : hdc in the 1st hdc and in each hdc till end. Turn. (16 sts)

Row 12 : (Hole row) : hdc in the 1st hdc ; (ch 1, sk next hdc, hdc in the next hdc) ; rep (to) 5 times ; [ch 1, sk next hdc, 2 hdc in the next hdc] ; 2 hdc in the last hdc. Turn. (11 hdc ; 7 ch-1 sps)

Row 13 : hdc in the 1st 4 hdc ; (hdc in the next ch-1 sp ; hdc in the next hdc) ; rep (to) till end. Turn. (18 sts)

Row 14 : (Increase row) : hdc in the 1st 16 hdc ; 2 hdc each in the last 2 hdc.
Turn. (20 sts)

Row 15 : (Shaping row) : sl-st in the 1st 6 hdc ; hdc in the next hdc and each hdc till the last 3 hdc ;  2 hdc each in the next hdc, hdc in the last hdc. Turn.

Row 16 : hdc in the 1st hdc and in each hdc till end. Turn.

Row 17 : (Hole row) : hdc in the 1st hdc ; (ch 1, sk next hdc, hdc in the next hdc) ; rep (to) till the last 2 hdc ; [ch 1, sk next hdc, 2 hdc in the next hdc] ; 2 hdc in the last hdc. Turn.

Row 18 : hdc in the 1st 4 hdc ; (hdc in the next ch-1 sp ; hdc in the next hdc) ; rep (to) till end. Turn.

Note : Check the small difference in our increase rows from here on.  We will be increasing in the 3rd last and 2nd last hdc, and working the last hdc plain (without increase).  This is to get a neat edge.

Row 19 : (Increase row) : hdc in the 1st hdc and in each hdc till the last 3 hdc ; 2 hdc in the next 2 hdc ; hdc in the last hdc. Turn.

Row 20 : hdc in the 1st hdc and in each hdc till end. Turn.

Row 21 : (Increase row) : hdc in the 1st hdc and in each hdc till the last 3 hdc ; 2 hdc in the next 2 hdc ; hdc in the last hdc. Turn.

Row 22 : hdc in the 1st hdc and in each hdc till end. Turn.

Row 23 : (Hole row) : hdc in the 1st hdc ; (ch 1, sk next hdc, hdc in the next hdc) ; rep (to) till the last 3 hdc ; [ch 1, sk next hdc, 2 hdc in the next hdc] ; 2 hdc in the last hdc. Turn

Row 24 : hdc in the 1st hdc and in each hdc till end. Turn.

Row 25 : (Increase row) : hdc in the 1st hdc and in each hdc till the last 3 hdc ; 2 hdc in the next 2 hdc ; hdc in the last hdc. Turn.  

Row 26 : hdc in the 1st hdc and in each hdc till end. Turn.

Put your work down and admire the beauty that you are creating.  We have successfully completed one repeat. So as you can see, it’s two rows of holes, followed by one spiky decrease that will work all the way up the scarf.
