One of my favorite things about this is that it falls nicely within my goal of creating a sassy, non-boxy project that beginners can complete with ease. You don't even need a crochet stitch!
I originally worked this scarf in Plymouth's Firenze Boucle, which is a relatively even blend of wool, acrylic, and nylon. The packaging doesn't list a recommended hook size for crochet, but it is likely a bulky weight yarn that takes an I-K hook. For this project, I used a J. Later, I made it in a worsted weight cotton yarn with a size H hook. It's a little shorter, which is fine with me.
Yarn: bulky boucle, approx. 60 yards.
Yarn: worsted cotton, similar yardage
To begin: ch 160, join with sl st. to first stitch to form a large loop. Guage on the green scarf, 15 st per 4 inches.
RED SCARF: Rows 2-12
GREEN SCARF: Rows 2-14
As you progress, it's a good idea to separate one side of your complete loops from the other. Not being a fan of complicated fixes myself, I opted to tie the strands together loosely to avoid tangles. This will save time when you get to the wrapping stage.
You'll know you have the loops arranged correctly if you can put the scarf over your head like a necklace.
|My wrapped section is about 4 1/2 inches. I wouldn't make it any bigger than that.|
Once you've wrapped as much of the scarf as you want, you can snip your yarn, leaving a normal tail for weaving in. The pictures below will show you how I finished mine, though this certainly isn't the only option.
This scarf is very quick and easy, and it can be worn either long or doubled over, as shown below:
