Introduction

This scarf was born of frustration. I walk alot, so I take my little iShuffle and clip it to whichever surface is readily available. To my constant irritation, the 'biter' isn't very strong and pops off at the littlest tug. So I decided to crochet a solution. A simple scarf, short and out of the way of my waving arms, with a little pocket for my wayward music player.

Materials List

1 Ball Lion Brand “Wool-Ease Thick & Quick” in Main Color (“MC”)
1 Ball Lion Brand “Wool-Ease Thick & Quick” in Contrasting Color (“CC”)
(You will need 3 colors of yarn if you wish to make a striped scarf like the one shown)
P – 11.5mm Hook
M – 9.0mm Hook
Yarn needle
Stick On Velcro

Scissors

Finished Size

34” (86 cm) long, 9” (23 cm) wide

Gauge

3 hdc and 2 rows per 2 square inches

Notes

-This scarf will fit most women. For larger or smaller sizes, to change the length, increase or decrease the number of stitches in beginning chain.
-In this pattern ‘ch 2, turn’ does not count as first hdc, unless otherwise specified.

-Work through both loops of stitches unless otherwise specified.

The Pattern

Scarf (Use Hook P)

Row 1: In MC, Ch 55. Hdc in 3rd ch from hook, and across. (54 sts) Without turning, in bottom of beginning ch, hdc in 16th ch from hook, and in the bottom of each st across. (92 sts)

Row 2 - 5: Ch 2, turn. Hdc in same st, and in each st across. (92 sts)

Row 6: Ch 1 turn. Sc in same st and in each st across (92 sts). Fasten off.

Pocket Body (Use Hook M)

Row 2 – 7: Ch 1, turn. Sc across (7 sts).

Pocket Flap (Use Hook M)
Row 1: In CC, ch 8. Sc in 2nd ch from hook and across (7 sts)
Row 2 - 4: St st. Sc across, leave last st unworked.
Fasten off

Join CC at corner of triangle and sc along the uneven edges.

Finishing
Weave in all ends.
Blanket stitch in CC along end of scarf.
Stitch pocket & flap onto end of scarf, 1 cm from the right and bottom edges.

Apply stick on Velcro to pocket flap.

Options
-Measure your music player of choice to make sure that it will fit in the pocket. If not, add stitches or rows to the Pocket Body to ensure a good fit.

-Instead of a blanket stitch along the end of the scarf, I have made tassels, left it plain or crocheted a decorative border.
