long summer scarf – variations

6 Comments

for the last time a few long summer scarves

after so many years of crocheting it still amazes me that with a simple stitch pattern so many variations can be produced. i could crochet more of these scarves and all will look slightly different. the scarves will go to people i like but the light gray one i keep for myself. 

 

multi-colored

the multi-colored scarf is short and instead of *(1 ch, 1 dc in next ch) 3 times, (1 ch, 1 sc in next ch) 3 times* i have done this: *(1 ch, 1 dc in next ch) 6 times, (1 ch, 1 sc in next ch) 9 times*. the rest of the pattern remains the same, only the division of stitches is different.

five rows on one side of the beginning chains and three rows on the other side. then i cut the yarn and attached it on the right side again and crocheted along the long sides of the scarf alternately 1 ch, 1 sc and 1 ch, 1 h dc – the sc in the sc and the h dc in the dc. this created the wavy edge.

on one short side of the scarf i used the yarn ends to sew little buttons and on the other side to make loops, so you can wear it in several ways. this scarf i made of catania yarn.

soft gray

for the soft gray scarf i replaced *(1 ch, 1 dc in next ch) 3 times, (1 ch, 1 sc in next ch) 3 times* for this: *(1 ch, 1 dc in next ch) 6 times, (1 ch, 1 sc in next ch) 6 times*. the rest of the pattern remains the same, only the division of stitches is different.

i’ve made 9 rows, cut off the yarn and attaching it back on the right side. then i have crocheted all around the scarf alternately 1 ch and 1 sc. the waves are on both sides at the same place.
