Notes

The details.

4 balls of Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran or whatever yummy squooshy yarn you have.

5mm crochet hook or whatever size you like to achieve the tension you prefer.

Do a bucket load of chains for the length of your scarf and add some more to be safe. Yep, you’re crocheting this up and down the length of the scarf.

I did a bunch of double crochet rows, swapping colours and cutting ends, the ends become part of your scarf, that’s right not sewing in ends.

I then started doing some treble rows with the intent of weaving ribbon and Liberty Tana Lawn through them. One row I wove a crushed velvet ribbon, the others I used Liberty. I cut across the width of the Liberty about an inch wide and if it wasn’t long enough, knotted 2 ends together as this is a scrappy kind of scarf. I did no finishing at all to the Liberty but it wears really nicely and doesn’t fray excessively.
