Rainy Morning Scarf v. 2

I wrote the pattern for a multi-colour version of this scarf and have edited it for clarity. This is the edited version, with tassels added. :) I used yarn in two colours. You can opt for more colours.


Yarn: Ice Yarns Metallic Lurex 195m/100gr, 1 ball lilac colour, 1 ball turquoise colour
Hook: 4.5mm
Measurements: Finished scarf shown is 20" span and 9" tall.



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. This will allow you to work continuously without having to count the exact number of stitches made. A common error when crocheting this scarf is failing to recognise the first and last stitches.  Yarn recommended is 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.



Instructions:

Row 1: Ch 2, 2 sc in second ch fr hook, turn. (2 sc)

Row 2: Ch 1, 2 sc in each of next 2 sc, turn. (4 sc)

Row 3: Ch 1, 3 sc in first sc, sc in each sc across leaving the last sc unworked, turn.

Row 4: Sk first sc, sc in each sc across, work 3 sc in last sc, turn.

Row 5 onwards: Rep Rows 3-4. When changing colour, end with rep of Row 4 then join with new colour yarn and proceed to next Row.

When desired length of scarf is made, fasten off. 

The scarf shown is first worked in 66 rows of Lilac yarn, followed by 28 rows of turquoise yarn.

TASSEL

Make one tassel. Here’s how to make a tassel:

1. Cut or fold up a sturdy piece of cardboard that’s about half to one inch longer than the desired length of the tassel you want to make. My tassel is 3.5 inches long so I used a cardboard 4 inches long.

2. Wrap the yarn lengthwise around the cardboard as may times as you need to get a good thick tassel. I wrapped the yarn for my tassel about 25 times.

3. Get another yarn cut to 24 inches and slip this under the wound yarn and pull up towards the top. Now tie this yarn (called a “hanging loop”) securely around the top of the tassel. Slide the tassel off the cardboard then cut the yarn at the base.

4. Cut another piece of yarn about 3 times the length of the tassel and wrap this tightly around all the strands about half to an inch away from the hanging loop of the tassel. Secure the ends of the wrapping yarn by threading them under the strands and down through the center of the tassel. Trim the ends with sharp scissors.


Join tassels to tips of scarf. Weave in all ends and block.
