To celebrate my 2 year Blogversary… I created this fun and easy to make crochet scarf!!! Using self-striping yarn and working with an easy stitch pattern to achieve a rolling effect,,, The Sands of Time Scarf is elegant and fashionable all year-long!! It is light-weight enough for spring, but warm enough to keep you warm on a chilly winters day!!

Worsted Weight ~ Self-Striping Yarn 425 yards
Pictured above using Red Heart Unforgettable in Cappuccino. 1 1/2 skeins used
Hook ~ I
2 Large Beads (optional) for top of Tassle
St ~ Stitch Ch ~ Chain Sc ~ Single Crochet Hdc ~ Half Double Crochet
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
From tip to tip not including the tassels ~ length 85″ and the width when laid flat 7″
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.
