I made my scarf 6" wide and 60" long, but you can easily adjust the pattern to customize your scarf. Feel free to contact me with questions if you're not sure how to tweak the sizing. And, as always, if you're a loose crocheter, I recommend you size down at least one hook, since I tend to crochet tightly.
- 2 skeins of I Love This Yarn! in Painted Canyon (or another worsted weight yarn with long color changes)
- Size I (5.5mm) crochet hook
- Tapestry needle
st(s) = stitch(es)
ch = chain
sc = single crochet
Row 1: sc in the 4th ch from the hook, [ch 1, skip 1 st, sc in the next st] across, turn
Row 2: ch 2, sc in the first ch-1 space, [ch 1, sc in the next ch-1 space] across, ending with a sc in the ch-3 space from the previous row, turn
Row 3: ch 2, sc in the first ch-1 space, [ch 1, sc in the next ch-1 space] across, ending with a sc in the ch-2 space from the previous row, turn
When it's time to change skeins (or if you encounter a knot within your skein), you have .a couple of options. If you don't mind shifting the pattern a bit, you can just go on your merry way and not worry about it. But if you want a seamless pattern of stripes without any visible changes, you'll have to be judicious about where you join your second skein. I recommend pulling out the new skein until you reach the same spot in the pattern where you stopped with the previous skein. Then join the new yarn at that location and cut off the extra yarn.
