© Kemberlee, 2007
Note: This pattern can be used with any yarn and appropriate size hook.
Yarn used: Brown Sheep Handpaint Originals in English Garden colorway
Hook size: 4mm, US size G
Stitch note: dc in the UK is a sc in the US…insert hook into stitch, yo, draw through, yo, draw through both loops. This pattern uses UK terms
Design note: part of this pattern uses the back loop and part uses both loops. Read instructions carefully.
Row 1 – 1dc into 3rd chain from hook, using back loop of chain, 1dc in each chain to end (170 stitches)
Row 2 – *chain 5, skip 4dc, slip stitch into 5th dc*, using both loops, repeat to end. Ch7, ss into end stitch to create a loop. Turn (34 spaces and one end loop)
Row 3 – 8dc in loop, 8dc into each 5dc space to end, using both loops.
Repeat Rows 2 and 3
Ch1 then 1dc into 1st stitch, repeat twice. Ch4, ss into 4th dc. Ch1 then 1dc into next stitch, repeat to next loop. On the 4th dc of loop, ch4 then ss into the same stitch. Ch1 then 1dc into the next stitch and repeat to end. Fasten off.
Option: Prior to starting, string 170 contrasting beads. When creating the foundation chain, be sure the beads rest on the back hump of the stitch. Follow the directions above and you will have a row of beads running through the heart of the scarf, which peak through the ruffles.
