MY APRIL SCARF
I call the stitch used in this scarf the seed stitch, because it makes me think of the knitted seed stitch. Not so much how it looks but the technique. It makes a nice edge, almost scalloped. The ends may be finished with fringe if that’s your preference.
Worsted weight yarn 4 ounces
I crochet hook
J crochet hook
With J hook, ch 19.
Row 1: (right side) Sc in second chain from hook and in each chain across. Ch 1, turn. (18 sc)
Switch to I hook.
Row 2: Sc in back loop of 1st sc, sc in front loop of next sc. *Sc in back loop of next sc, sc in front loop of next sc, repeat from * across row. Ch 1, turn. (18 sc)
Repeat row 2 for pattern until you reach the length that you want your scarf, ending on wrong side.
Last row: Sc in each sc across row.
Fasten off and weave in ends.
For wider scarf make starting chain longer, any odd number of chains.
Sample crocheted with Red Heart Super Saver Spring Green.
4 ounces of Red Heart Super Saver makes a scarf 58 inches long. For a longer scarf or to add fringe you will need more yarn.
If you decide to use this pattern, I suggest starting with a 127 stitch chain.
