Here is one of my favorite photobombs ever… I was in the back yard trying to get a picture… It was fairly cold and sprinkling a bit…  My daughter was out with me all wrapped up in her favorite blanket and of course… Charlie made sure to be in the photo as usual!  When we saw this picture we laughed until we almost cried… Good times!

Hook ~ I

2 Large Beads (optional) for top of Tassle

Scissors

 

Stitches:

St ~ Stitch     Ch ~ Chain     Sc ~ Single Crochet     Hdc ~ Half Double Crochet

 

*Tips

You will be increasing  at one end of the scarf and Decreasing at the opposite end to get this fun bias roll effect.

To make this scarf wider, thinner, more or less bulky you can adjust your beginning chain to any width you desire

To make the scarf shorter or longer you can adjust the finished row amount

You will be working in Back Loops for every row

 

Measurement:

From tip to tip not including the tassels ~ length  85″  and the width when laid flat  7″

Instructions: 

Ch 46

Row 1: Sc in 2nd Ch from hook and each across. = 45 Sc

Work in Back Loops in every row

Row 2: Ch 2 (counts as Hdc now and throughout), Turn, Hdc in the same St as the beginning Ch(This will make an increase), Hdc in the next 43 Sts. Leaving the last St unworked(this will make the decrease. 45 Hdc

Row 3:  Turn, Sl St in first 2 Sts (Make sure to get the very 1st St, these 2 Sl Sts are the decrease), Ch 1, Sc in same St as 2nd Sl St, Sc in next 42 Sts, 2 Sc in the  last St (this will be in the top of the Ch 2 from the prev row, this is an increase). = 45 Sc

Continue working Rows 2 &  3 until your scarf reaches the desired length. I did a total of 117 rows and ended with a Sc row.  Finish off.

Add a tassel to each end if desired.

Here is a quick tutorial on How to Make a Tassel out of yarn…  Tassel Making

I added a fun bead to the top of my tassel for fun!
