This scarf was made for my daughter, who requested a wide scarf. It is easy to make and suitable for a beginner as it is a one row repeating pattern using the half-treble v-stitch (UK terms). This pattern can easily be adapted to whatever length and width you desire – if you want a narrower scarf then reduce the foundation chain (still a multiple of 2+2), adjust the length by working as many or as few rows as you wish..
Approx 200g-300g of double knitting yarn – I used 2 x 150g of King Cole Curiosity in shade Heather (2892).
4mm hook (or as appropriate for yarn)
Needle to darn in ends
Gauge is not critical to this project.
26cm x 165cm (10inches x 64inches) excluding tassels.
UK terms are used throughout.
Htr half treble crochet
- Chain 46 (or multiple of 2 plus 2 for the foundation row).
- Row 1. [1Htr, ch1, 1Htr] in 4th chain from the hook, miss one stitch, *[1Htr, Ch1,1Htr] in next stitch*, repeat from *to* until last two chain remain, 1Htr in last stitch. Turn.
- Row 2. Ch2, miss 2 stitches, *[1Htr, Ch1, 1Htr] in next chain space between the two Htr in the row below, miss 1 stitch*, repeat from *to* until last Htr and insert Htr in the turning chain.
- Subsequent rows. Repeat row 2.
- Continue adding rows until you have reached the desired length. I completed approximately 188 rows.
- Fasten off and weave in ends.
- Add tassels if desired. I have described how to do this here.
