RAINY MORNING SCARF
by Fatima Lasay / Crochetology.net
Design Note: The scarf is crocheted in one piece. After Row 2, the pattern repetition is established starting at Row 3. The pattern repetition consists of alternating rows of 2 sc increase and 1 sc decrease, resulting to an increase of 1 sc in each Row. Decorate the scarf with tassels at the three points if desired. Happy crocheting!
Tips: Learn to read the stitches in your work, especially at the beginning and at the end of each Row. Common error is failing to recognise the first and last stitches. This will allow you to work continuously without having to count the exact number of stitches made. Yarn recommended is self-striping yarn with short color bands, minimum DK weight and above. A larger hook is recommended. Work loosely and remember to do so especially at the beginning and end of each Row. If you work too tightly, the scarf may fold over at the edges.
