Rick Rack Stitch Scarf
Rick Rack Scarf
Corrections included on 2/7/14 in pattern page to add the * which disappeared from original.
This stitch gives a 3D quality to your fabric. You can use any yarn and gauge is not important. What is important is that you have the correct amount of chains/stitches in the beginning to have the correct repeats of the pattern.
The original stitch was used in an afghan with thread as the “yarn” of choice. I obtained the stitch pattern from a old hand out from Yarn Mart! stores at an LYS in Boise. It was called the Rainbow Rick Rack Afghan, using one color for two rows, and using 7 colors.
Sizes: Recommended hooks for yarns, but not set in stone
