Arch Mesh Scarf
Posted November 7, 2009on:
This is a good pattern for using a skein or two of some “fancy” yarn you picked up in the clearance bin or have left over from another project. The pattern works up fast and makes an open mesh scarf.
I used a 50 g ball of German yarn “Topas busse” that is 60% cotton and 40% linen. The ball was approximately 131 yards or 120 meters long and the scarf ended up to be 50 inches long and 4 1/4 inches wide using a starting chain of 15 and a G hook.
Adjust your hook size and starting chain depending on your yarn and the size of scarf you want.
Start with a starting chain of a multiple of 4 stitches plus 3. (For example, 8 + 3 = starting chain of 11; 12 + 3 = starting chain of 15; etc)
Row 1: Chain 5 (counts as first dc and ch 2), sc in 6th chain from hook, ch 2, skip 1 ch, *dc in next ch, ch 2, skip 1 ch, sc in next ch, ch 2, skip 1 ch, repeat from *, end row with dc.
Row 2: Ch 1, turn, *sc in dc of previous row, ch 2, dc in sc of previous row, ch 2, repeat from *, end row with sc in third ch of the ch 5.
Row 3: Ch 5, turn, *sc in dc of previous row, ch 2, dc in sc of previous row, ch 2, repeat from *, end row with dc.
Repeat rows 2 and 3 until scarf is desired length. Weave in ends.
As always, let me know if you have any questions or problems with the pattern.
