This scarf design is a different angle on a traditional shape. It best showcases handspun or self striping yarn. It could be made with any yarn weight and could be knit to any size you want.
The fringed edge is crocheted with a contrasting color yarn, and requires basic crochet skills.
Other than the usual notions you’ll need a kitchen scale or yarn meter in order to measure how much yarn you have left in the ball.
Notes on yarn:
- To make the most of this pattern, striping yarn is recommended for the main color.
- The scarf can be as large or as small as you like. For a medium size scarf, use approximately 50gr/1.8oz of laceweight or fingering yarn, or approx. 100gr/3.6oz of DK or worsted weight. Use needles and hook to match your yarn.
- The sample scarf used 50gr/1.8oz of handspun laceweight yarn on US#2.5/3mm needles, and measures 100cm/40” from center point to tip (that’s one “leg” of the scarf).
- The amount required for the crochet border is about 1/5 of the amount used for the scarf body.
- In order to know how much yarn you used, weigh the remaining ball of yarn and reduce its weight from the original weight of the ball.
