In The Netherlands summer is officially over. It’s getting colder every day, but you won’t hear me complain because it means I get to crochet things like this gorgeous scarf!
This is what you’ll need:
- Scheepjes Ambiance, color 0105 (super bulky). I used up 6½ skeins
- Crochet hook 12mm
- ch (Chain)
- sc (Single Crochet)
- sl st (Slip Stitch)
- st (Stitch)
Note: My scarf is 36cm/14inch wide and 205cm/80inch long (not counting the fringes).
Ch50, or any other even number to create the preferred width
1sc in 2nd ch from hook, 1sc in each ch throughout
ch1, turn and sl st in first st
ch1, skip 1 st, sl st in next st
- ch1, skip 1 st, sl st in next st * repeat till end. Ch1 and turn
Keep repeating the second row until you reach the desired length.
sl st in first st, * ch1, skip 1 st, sl st in next st * repeat till end. Ch1 and turn.
Finish the scarf with a row of sc.
I wanted my fringes to be about 20cm/8inch long, so I cut even strings in double of that length. My scarf is 49st wide, so I cut 98 strings, 1 string for each st.
If you don’t know what size fringes you want yet, cut extra large strings, so you can trim them when you’re done and you can see what looks good on your scarf.
Fold the string in half, insert your hook (I used a smaller hook for this) into the loops of the sc of first or last row of your scarf
draw up the folded side of your fringe and pull through the loops
Next you pull the two loose ends through the loop and pull it tight. (I didn’t weave in the end of the scarf and you can see in this picture that I just added it to the fringes) Your first fringe is now complete.
Repeat this in each sc of both ends of your scarf
