AN EASY PEASY SCARF
AN EASY PEASY SCARF
I am pretty
sure this scarf has been made and remade several times, but this is just
something I came up with really fast for a friend and here are my notes for
this really easy peasy scarf.
Materials used : I
have used under 50 gms of our lovely Indian Oswal Cashmilon 3-ply, light
fingering yarn with a 3.5 mm crochet hook
For Indians : You could also use our Indian Anchor / Red rose
/ White or the wide range of Alize knitting cotton yarns with a 3 - 3.5 mm
crochet hook too.
For Non-Indians : The
yarn that I have used is a light fingering yarn and technically uses a 2.5 – 3
mm crochet hook. I prefer using a
slightly larger hook size as I love the extra stretch it gives the scarf.
In case you are unhappy with this start, or do
not like it, do continue with the usual ch-2 or ch-3 start. However, all instructions will be given
assuming that you are using this chainless dc start.

This pattern, as with all my patterns, this one
too can be made to any size – any width and any length.. just check the stitch
count and have fun creating something beautiful.
Our stitch count for this scarf is in multiples
of 6 + 1.
So depending on how wide you want it, work your
start row in multiples of the stitch count given above accordingly.
Start :with fsc in
multiples of 6 + 1. Turn.
In the following row, our Shell stitch is (3 dc
; ch 1, 3 dc).
Row 1 :dc in the 1st
*sk next 2 fsc, Shell st in the
next fsc ; sk next 2 fsc, sc in the next fsc* ;
rep *to* till the last 7 fsc ;
sk next 2 fsc ; shell
st in the next fsc ; sk next 2 fsc, dc in the last fsc. Turn.
Row 2 :dc in the 1st
*ch 3, sk next 3 dc (of the Shell
st), sc in the next ch-1 sp (of the Shell st) ; ch 3, sk next 3 dc (of the
Shell st), dc in the next sc* ;
rep *to* till the end, dc in the last dc. Turn.
Row 3 :dc in the 1st
*Shell st in the next sc ; sc in the next dc* ;
rep *to* till the end , dc in the last dc. Turn.
And that’s our pattern done ! Short , sweet and
so easy peasy, don’t you agree?
Rep Rows 2 & 3 for the length you want for your scarf.
A lovely shawl always needs a lovely finish. Ensure that you block your project for best
effect, keeping in mind yarn instructions for blocking.
Here are several ideas for ending off your
scarf. You can add tassels and / or
beads.. or you can add both tassels and beads.
