Materials

1 Hank Berroco Lacey (100g), #2305 Toast

Note: There is enough yarn in one hank to make 2 scarves.

Crochet hook, size 6-G US (4 mm) OR

Scarf is made by attaching a ruffled border to a flat piece of yarn (see diagram below):

Center Portion (for both versions)

Cut a piece of yarn 156” in length. Fold this piece to form two layers, with ends overlapping 2” at the center of top layer. To create a tidy edge on the top overlapping end, fold first 1” of yarn underneath itself (see diagram below):


Ruffled Border

Crochet Version:

Starting at overlapping section of center portion, insert hook through a large loop at top edge, making sure to insert hook through all layers of center portion. Prepare to join new yarn by rolling first 1” of new yarn, then insert hook through all rolled layers. Pull these loops through the loops from center portion.

*Stitch A: Working from right to left, insert hook through next available large loop at edge of all layers of center portion and pull this through loop on hook.

Stitch B: Skip next available large loop on new yarn and insert hook through 2nd available large loop, then pull this through loops on hook.

Rep from * until the short end of center portion is reached, ending with Stitch B.

For short end, repeat Stitches A and B five times along edge, working Stitch A into both layers of center portion, even though large loops are not available.

After completing short end, begin working Stitches A and B as before until opposite short end is reached, then work as for first short end.

Continue working Stitches A and B as before until no large loops remain on center portion, ending with Stitch A. Cut yarn leaving 1” extra, then roll last 1” of yarn and insert hook through all rolled layers. Pull these loops through the loops on hook. Secure last loops with sewing needle and thread.

For short end, repeat Stitches A and B five times along edge, working Stitch A into both layers of center portion, even though large loops are not available.

After completing short end, begin working Stitches A and B as before until opposite short end is reached, then work as for first short end.

Continue working Stitches A and B as before until no large loops remain on center portion, ending with Stitch A.
