This is the first time I have written down a pattern, for the scarf which just “ happened “ to strike me as a new and interesting pattern, rather a possibility for a scarf, while I was crocheting a pair of baby socks.I crocheted the "possibility" into a real scarf, soon after I completed the socks. I posted the photo of the completed scarf in Flickr, where I go by the name Rufaro crafty and a lot of members showed interest.
The best thing about this scarf is, being reversible you can team it up with more outfits.
I am no designer and naturally not a pattern writer, but I am making an effort!!
I used about 130 gm of 4-ply yarn , in dark (Colour A) and light brown (Colour B ) put together. I made the first and last rows in dark brown, so I must have used a little bit more of that.
The thickness of yarn, colour and hook size are your choice, but don't make with too thin a yarn, you may not get the desired effect
The completed scarf was 5” wide and 72” long ( lost patience to make it any wider ).
I used a 4 mm. hook. But your hook size will depend on the yarn used by you.
Important - All sc are in back loop.
Colour A - Dark Brown
Colour B - Light Brown
Make a long string of chains in Colour A , keeping a 4" long tail in the beginning (this will be part of the fringe ). The string of chs should be as long as you want the scarf to be, I made 214 chs..
1st row - sc in the 2nd ch from hook, sc in each ch till end,
Fasten off , keeping a 4" long tail for the fringe. Turn work.
2nd row - Attach Colour B leaving a 4" long tail, sc in all sc of 1st row till end ( through back loop only), Fasten off , keeping a 4" long tail for the fringe .Turn work.
3rd row - Attach Colour A leaving a 4" long tail, sc in all sc of previous row till end( through back loop only), Fasten off , keeping a 4" long tail for the fringe.
Repeat 2nd and 3rd rows, alternating between Colours A and B, till you reach the desired width of the scarf.
Basically all right side rows are in one colour and the wrong side rows in another,the sc being through back loop , you get one side in dark colour and the other in light, making the scarf reversible.
You may add additional fringes in alternate colours at the end, if the fringe looks too scanty. I did.
In case I've missed out on anything please. point it out, so that I can suitably modify the pattern. I would also request for giving your opinion about the scarf, once you have made one.
This scarf pattern was test crocheted by my dear friend JoAnn McLean, of Ontario, Canada, who also helped me by going through the pattern and suggesting suitable changes. Here is the scarf she made,
It is quite possible that, people have been making this pattern since ages, but then I did not make it by looking up a pattern, so it remains MY Reversible Scarf :~)))
