This is such an easy and enjoyable scarf to work. Perfect for adding that pop of happy colour into dreary winter days.
I encourage you to go wild on the colour. This scarf is all about fun and being flippant. Let your inner flipperty gibbit shine.
• The increase is worked at one end. To help you remember which end it is, mark it with a stitch marker.
• The turning ch never counts as a stitch.
• In my version I used 5 different colours and keeping the colour changes in order, randomly worked a number of rows, before changing colour.
Chain 3, in 3rd chain from hook, work 3 tr, turn
Row 1 ch 1, work 2tr into 1st tr, tr in each st to end. Turn
Row 2 ch1, tr in each st to last st, 2tr into last. Turn
Repeat row 1 and 2 until scarf measures desired length, or you run out of yarn.
Round 1 – join to right hand corner of last row, ch 4 ( sk next st, tr into next st ch1) repeat around. Finish yarn if working in multiple colours.
Round 2 – join yarn in a 1 ch sp, ch 3, 1tr in 1st 1 ch sp, work (2tr into each ch1 sp) around. Finish yarn
Round 3– join in yarn between a 2tr group, ch1, work (1dc into space between 2tr, ch3, sk 2 tr) around. Finish yarn.
Ch3, in third chain from hook work the following 5 times.(Dc, htr, tr, htr)
Alternatively work into a magic ring, 5 times.(Dc, htr, tr, htr)
Sew flowers to scarf. Backing each flower with a flower to hide the stitching.
Soak the scarf in warm water for about 20 minutes and peg to the line along long side. Adding pegs to the opposite side to weight the scarf. This will ‘block’ the scarf. Opening out the fabric and setting its shape.
