I made this scarf because the white shirt I am wearing in the image doesn’t have any buttons higher than you can see them done up, and it was windy when I got the idea. So this scarf was created, with only eight rows and one round, it’s “quick”, but it has 200 stitches.
~6.5mm crochet hook
~15 crochet cotton (I used Clea)
~Scissors and a darning needle
1.-2. Ch 1, sc 200. Turn.
3. Ch 2, dc 200. Turn.
4. Rep 1.
5. Rep 3.
6.-8. Rep 1. After row 8, do not turn.
9. Sc 2 more in last st. Working down side, picot 5x. Sc 3 in corner. Working across bottom, sc 200. Sc 2 more in last st. Working up side, picot 5x. Sc 3 in corner. Working across top, sc 200. End off.
Weave in the tails, and (if you want) block it. If you don’t know how to block something, see this tutorial: Blocking Tutorial. So what if it’s for knitting, it works for crochet, too. I didn’t block mine.
If you want a longer scarf, just add more stitches. However many you want.
If you don’t want to do the picots, don’t. Just do sc’s instead.
And there you have a simple but lacy scarf for any occasion. If you want a very noticeable scarf, use a fluffy novelty yarn. That’d look neat. I should do that! 😛
