Introduction

Inspired by "Argosy" by Vyvyan Neel from the Winter 2006 issue of knitty.com. If you are not familiar with Argosy, see it here:

I have to admit that I am a knitter disguised as a crocheter! I started crocheting young, and taught myself to knit about 8 years ago. I have been happily obsessed with both crafts ever since.

I loved this scarf and have knit several, but have given them away as gifts. But only recently started wondering how it would look in crochet. So here's my version! Hope you like it!

Do not be alarmed by the wordiness of the pattern. All the info is there just to keep you on track, but once you get the hang of it, you won't need the pattern anymore.

Materials List

Any yarn you like and any hook you like! (I used a worsted weight, 100% Alpaca that I hand-dyed in Brown, Blue and Cream. I only had 2 skeins, so I used up both skeins. I would have made it longer if I had dyed up an extra skein! And I'm already contemplating what it would look like in Noro Sock Yarn!) - See 3rd pic for WIP with Noro Silk Garden Sock Yarn and a size "H" hook
I used a crochet hook size "H"

and I used approx. 220 yards

Finished Size

Mine is approx. 43" long x 8 ½" wide (after blocking)

Gauge

Gauge is not essential for this project - a thinner yarn will yield a narrower scarf, a thicker yarn will yield a wider scarf, depending on hook size used.

The Pattern

Repeat Row 6 three more times.

Repeat Decrease Row, working from ** to ** once, then from * once, end dc in next dc, leaving next chain 2 space, next 4 dc and last chain 2 space unworked.

Repeat Row 6 two more times. Fasten off.

Finishing

Mine required blocking because the scarf wanted to curl. I spritzed mine with a water bottle lightly to dampen, then laid it flat and pinned each corner so that each square on the side edge of the scarf would lay flat when dry. See my blocking pic below. Enjoy!! :)

Great Job!
