Day 248 and Weightless

I was interested in doing another ruffly type scarf, but they can be bulky if not done right. If you want to wear it as an accessory and not as cold weather gear, you have to plan ahead. I had a very light fingering weight mohair wool blend in my stash. Mixing that with the easiest of easy increase lace crochet lace gave me lots of twisting ruffles in no time at all!

(American terms)
Size K hook
250 yards fingering preferably with a thick halo
tapestry needle

Begin by chaining any number (make the chain precisely as long as you'd like the scarf.
Row1: DC into the fifth chain from the hook, *chain 1. DC into next stitch* Repeat until the end of the chain.
Row2: Chain 4, turn. DC into the very first stitch, ch1. *DC into the next DC, chain 1, DC into the same DC, chain 1* Repeat until the end of the row.
Row 3: Chain 4, turn. TC into the very first stitch, ch1. *TC into the next DC, Ch1. TC into the Next DC, ch1, TC into the same DC, ch1* Repeat to the end of the row omitting the final chain 1. Cut the yarn and weave in ends.

  1. I love this. I do a similar version that's knit, using short row increases. Turns out a lovely ruffle.
