50% of sales for this pattern until the end of January went to the Red Cross disaster relief fund. Thank you all for helping!

This scarf is composed of five triangular sections with bobbles at the end of each increase and decrease section. It is worked in one piece so all you need to do to finish is to weave in the beginning and ending threads.

For this scarf, I did not use a Tunisian/afghan hook as the stitches fit comfortably on my regular hook. If you are worried about stitches dropping off, wind a rubber band around the end of your hook.

I used 100 grams/3.5 ounces 185 m/200 yds of silk I bought on eBay, but any sport weight yarn will work for the hook size specified. Instructions are given for making this scarf wider. Remember that any alterations will affect the amount of yarn you need for this project.

You can go up or down in yarn thickness as long as you use a hook ½ to 1 sizes up from the hook size recommended for that yarn to preserve the drape of this pattern.

Please note: if you make a stitch by working a tdc between stitches as suggested by another crocheter on her project page, you will have a bit of a gap and the stitch will sit lower than the other stitches in the row, if you make a tdc instead of simply pulling a loop through, the stitch will sit higher than the rest of the stitches. Please just follow the directions as written and work the increase in the horizontal bar between the stitches.

I would like to take this opportunity to note that any changes made to my pattern will not yield the same results and should be considered as alternatives not corrections. I encourage you to adapt this pattern as you choose but I cannot be responsible for any deviations made to my pattern.
