Cori’s scarf pattern


Just a couple of quick notes on the pattern. First, the yarn called for is a 420-meter skein, and I used pretty much the whole thing except for about 4 or 5 yards. So if you want a scarf that is as long as I made mine, you’ll need at least that much yarn. Second, you can really use any lightweight yarn for this pattern and a slightly larger hook will make a lacier pattern, a little wider, but maybe not quite as long. Lots of options for this pattern and it is an easy one to memorize! I will post photos as soon as I can get the Internet to cooperate and load them.

Here it is for all of you who asked for it:

Sc in same st and next st. *Ch 1, skip next stitch, hdc in next st; ch 1, skip next st, dc in next st; ch 1, skip next st, trc in next stitch; ch 1, skip next stitch, trc in next st; ch 1, skip next st, dc in next stitch; ch 1, skip next st, hdc in next stitch*; ch 1, skip next st, sc in next three sts.

Row 5: Ch 4 (counts as first trc), turn. Trc in next st. Ch 1, skip next st, dc in next st; ch 1, skip next st, hdc in next st; *ch 1, skip next st, sc in next three sts; ch 1, skip next st, hdc in next st; ch 1, skip next st, dc in next st; ch 1, skip next st, trc in next st*; ch 1, skip next st, trc in next st; ch 1, skip next st, dc in next st; ch 1, skip next st, hdc in next st.

Row 6: Ch 1, turn. Sc in same st, and in each st and chain-1 space across.

Row 7: Ch 1, turn. Sc in blo of same st; sc in blo of each st across.

Repeat rows 2-7 until scarf is desired length, ending with a Row 3 row. Finish off. Using yarn needle, weave in ends.

NOTE: I think this pattern could easily be adapted to any weight yarn using an appropriate size hook and knowing that the scarf would obviously be wider with a heavier-weight yarn.
