From the talented Joanne Scrace from The Crochet Project, this shawl pattern is perfect when you want a scarf with a wow-factor but without too much thinking to do as you make it? Humbug is the answer! This easily memorised pattern, worked on the bias, keeps your fingers busy while your mind is occupied (or is simple enough for beginners) and lets the colours of the hand-dyed yarn do all the talking. Just one 100g skein of 4ply makes a nice long crescent shaped scarf for wrapping with a pretty puff stitch detail.
Finished depth: 23cm/9in
Finished length: 165cm/65in
Length is easily adjusted by working more or fewer rows. A deeper scarf can be achieved by working more repeats in the set up section. Altering the size alters the yarn required.
1 100g skein (approx 365m)
4.5mm (US 7) hook.
20 sts and 16 rows in pattern to 10 cm/4in using 4.5mm hook (or size needed to achieve tension)
Basic crochet stitches, working in rows, increasing, missing stitches.
Started at one end, worked on the bias, an initial increase section is worked followed by a series of wedges that are all the same length.
This pattern uses standard UK crochet terminology (with US translations provided in the abbreviations)
