Introduction

Hemp is great for season-less projects, warm in the winter, cool in the summer. This scarf works up quick in blocks of color and the hemp gets softer the more you wash it!

100% long hemp fiber, 165yds per skein
MC = aubergine, color 27

Notes

Note: When changing colors, just tie a double knot with both yarns, leaving a 2" tail. This will give the scarf the tails shown in the photo along the long edge.

For a wider or longer scarf, add more stitches in the beginning chain and work more rows!

The Pattern

-with MC, ch 13, work 1 dc in 4th ch from hook, 1 dc in each to beg (10dc)
-ch 2, turn, 1 hdc in each across
-ch 3, turn, 1 dc in each across
-join CC, ch 3, turn, 1 dc in each across
-ch 4, turn, 1 tr in each across
-ch 3, turn, 1 dc in each across
-join MC, ch 2, turn, 1 hdc in each across

-join CC, ch 3, turn, 1 dc in each across
-ch 3, turn, 1 dc in each across
-ch 4, turn, 1 tr in each across

-ch 2, turn, 1 hdc in each across

continue working as above until you run out of yarn, switching colors and alternating the amount of rows you work with each color, to give it that bohemian look!
