if you missed part 1 here is the link to the explanation of the stitch pattern.
let’s continue with the scarf and make the edge, which is a simple one without curls and bobbles (but you can always choose something else, all according to your taste).
- end with a row 3: make 1 sc in first two dc, *make 2 ch, skip next 2-ch space, 1 sc in next two dc*, repeat between * and * until end of row.
- do not turn because the side which is facing you is the right side. that is the side where you crochet the first and last row of 2 sc, 2 ch, 2 sc, 2 ch (=row 3).
- you will now work all around the scarf.
- make 1 ch, 1 sc into the same stitch, (attach a paperclip or a yarn end in a contrasting color to the 1 chain space you just made), make 3 ch, now continue working on the short side, *crochet 1 sc into the next stitch in which you made a sc, make 3 ch, 1 sc into the next stitch in which you made a sc*, repeat until you reach the next corner, 1 sc into the first ch of your beginning chain, 1 ch
- continue working on the long side, you make single crochets into the same chains as you made the single crochets of the first row, 1 sc in same ch, 1 sc in next sc, 2 ch, skip 2 sc, *1 sc into next two sc, 2 ch, skip 2 sc, 1 sc into next two sc*, repeat between * and * until next corner, make 1 ch.
- make 1 sc into same stitch, 3 ch, continue working on the second short side, crochet 1 sc into the next stitch in which you made a sc, *make 3 ch, 1 sc into the next stitch in which you made a sc*, repeat between * and * until you reach the next corner, 1 ch.
- continue working on the second long side, make 1 sc into the first sc of the last row 3 of the stitch pattern, 1 sc into the next sc, 2 ch, skip 2 sc, *1 sc into next two sc, 2 ch, skip 2 sc, 1 sc into next two sc*, repeat between * and * until last corner, make 1 ch
- make 1 sc into the 1 chain space with the paperclip or contrasting yarn end (don’t remove), make 1 sc in all subsequent stitches (all around the scarf) until you reach the 1 chain space at the beginning of this row and end with a ss into the 1 chain space.
- weave in yarn ends, remove paperclip or contrasting yarn end, you’ve finished your scarf!
some extra notes
- as you can see while working on the edge or looking at my pictures, the spaces on the short sides, are large enough to function as button holes. all you have to do is to sew buttons on one short side. but of course you can make the button holes larger by crocheting more chains.
- have you chosen to work widthwise you can instead of 2 sc, 2 ch, 2 sc (of first and last rows) choose to make 2 sc, 3 or 4 ch, 2 sc, etc. the rest remains the same.
- in the way as describes in part 1 and part 2, you can use any stitch pattern to crochet a scarf, bag, blanket or otherwise.
hope you like to wear your scarf!
