Long time no blog! To make up for it, I thought I would share this sweet project. A friend of mine (the real hombre of the mojo wire) mentioned wanting a scarf for Christmas and since I never get to make actual scarves, I accepted that challenge. He received it yesterday, so I get to share photos and the pattern, today.
I started it in the car on the way to an out-of-town Christmas party and finished it later that night, at home. It was perfect for chatting in the car and then subsequently for working in front of the TV. I strongly encourage you to make one, if you are in need of a last-minute gift! For the guy and/or lady in your life. Really, I can see it in magenta and mustard for a girl (me!). Jeez, I really wish it weren’t 75 degrees out, today.
2 skeins Patons Classic Wool in 2 different colors (medium weight 100% wool, 3.5oz/210 yd per skein)
6 mm (US J) hook
Measures approximately 6″ x 80″, but the woven stitch makes it very stretchy
Row 1: SC in 4th ch from hook, *Ch 1, skip 1 ch, SC in next ch; rep from * to end. Ch 3, turn.
Row 2: SC in first ch-1 sp, *Ch 1, SC in next ch-1 sp; rep from * to end, making last SC in the beginning ch-3 of previous row. Ch 3, turn.
Repeat row 2 for pattern. Omit the last Ch-3 on the last row. Finish off, weave in ends.
Color scheme: I used Color #1 for 140 rows, then I switched between Color 1 and Color 2 for 6 rows, and ended with Color 2 for 140 more rows.
