Make: A simple crochet scarf

I made this yesterday as an antidote to a rather complex lace knitting pattern. It only took about 3 hours from start to finish, using a rather lovely self striping yarn from Erika Knight’s jazz colours collection. You can easily make it yourself if you can do double and treble crochet (English terms).

Make 2 strips of 250 chains (or to your required length), Double crochet (DC) 10 rows. The centre panel is a variation of a design in last month’s edition of Inside Crochet magazine called Circles Scarf (read a blog post from the designer here:

http://www.lindamade.com/wordpress/2010/11/circles-scarf/

).

There is also a Ravelry link:

The centre panel is joined to the outer panels with a final row of DC. I added a short fringe to each end.

There is a very similar pattern in the Fall Edition of Interweave Crochet (http://www.interweavecrochet.com/issue/2010/fall/materials-fall-2010.asp#pink-asters-scarf)

* Sorry – WordPress doesn’t seem to like my links today so I’ve put them in brackets so you can cut and paste to see more info on the patterns – the perils of having  slow internet connection!!
