>Free Pattern Friday: Lyndham One-Skein Scarf

>As promised earlier in the week, here’s the pattern for the scarf that I designed for my Beginner’s Crochet class:

It’s a short trans-seasonal scarf, made with a single ball of a soft lightweight yarn and intended to be held in place with a scarf pin. If you’d like a longer one, double the quantities
British terminology used [ for US scroll down to the bottom ]

yarn – 1 ball Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino or sock or 5-ply wool or alpaca [ at least 101m ]
hook – 3.5 – 4mm
finished size approx 13cm x 83 cm**


** the blue version was made with one ball of Rare Yarns Endare 4 ply which is a thinner wool/alpaca yarn with a slight halo – not recommended for a beginner as it splits – Endare will produce a slightly lighter, longer scarf on a 3mm hook

abbreviations
ch = chain
dc = double crochet
tr = treble
st = stitch or stitches

foundation- chain 32
row 1 – tr into 4th ch from hook, tr to end. Turn
Row 2 – ch 3 [ counts as 1 tr ], tr in next st,* ch 3, miss 2 tr, dc in next st, ch 3, miss 2 tr, tr in next st. Repeat from * to last 4 stitches, ch 3, miss 2 tr, dc in last 2 st. Turn.
Row 3 – ch 3, tr in next st, * ch 3, miss ch space of previous row, dc in next tr, ch 3, miss ch space of previous row, tr in next dc. Repeat from * ending with 2 dc in tr and turning ch of previous row.

repeat row 3 until desired length or until you have only enough yarn to complete the final row:
Final row – ch 3, tr in next st, *2 tr in ch space, tr in next st. Repeat from * to last 2 st – tr in last 2 st, end off.

Don’t panic if it looks too short !!
This lace will grow narrower and much longer with ‘aggressive’ wet blocking.
