Introduction

This scarf is so much fun to make! And the colors will keep you going and going....

Materials List

1 skein Socks That Rock, medium weight sock yarn, approx. 380 yards - available at: http://www.bluemoonfiberarts.com
(my color is Fire On The Mountain - and I still had about a quarter of the skein left)

Size "H" Crochet hook

Finished Size

My scarf measured 6" wide x 48" long after blocking.

Gauge

Not essential to this project! Yay!

Notes

This pattern is very easy, but the one thing I had trouble with was keeping my lace loops a consistent size. Pull up the loop to about 1" in height (or desired height) and hold it with your finger while making the next stitch. It will hold the loop in place and keep your loop sizes more even.

The Pattern

Lace Pattern (multiple of 5 sts + 1)

Row 1 (right side) Dc in 4th chain from hook, *sc in next ch, draw up loop on hook to 1", sk next 3 chs, work (dc, ch 1, dc) in next ch, rep from * to last 2 chs, sk next ch, sc in last ch, ch 3 (counts as first dc of next row throughout), turn.

Row 2: Dc in next dc, *sc in next ch 1 sp, draw up loop on hook to 1", (dc, ch 1, dc) in next sc, rep from * to last 2 sts, sk next dc, sc in top of turning chain, ch 3, turn.

Rep Row 2 for pattern.

Scarf

Ch 26 (more or less depending on desired width. The loops will stretch after blocking to make the scarf a bit wider when finished.)

Work Lace Pattern until scarf is desired length. Fasten off.

Wet block to allow the lace loops to lay flat and stretch out. Blocking was a bit of a challenge - I only had seamstress pins to pin the scarf down with. If you have lace blocking wires those would work awesome for this and would allow for a more consistent width.

Variations:

Try chaining 95 (+1) and work the scarf length-wise. The lace loops will hang vertically for a different look.

This scarf would look just as lovely in a solid yarn!

Also try working this scarf in a lightweight cotton yarn for a light, spring scarf!

Took me a few rows and frogging to get it to look the way it does in the picture, but it was sooo worth it. I'm making this for my oldest daughter's preschool teacher as a year-end thank you gift. I'm using SouthWest Trading Company Bamboo yarn in the "Sahara" colorway (http://soysilk.com/yarn-pages/bamboo.html). I wanted to do it in "Azul" but my LYS was out of it. I think it would be stunning in it. The bamboo is pricey, ($14 for 250 yards) but has such a pretty sheen and beautiful hand.
