Whisper Grey Crochet Scarf

Digging around through my yarn projects I found this scarf I made a while back. I wanted a nice easy project I could complete on my travels around the UK.



The beauty of crochet is that you can easily do a more open pattern, it build up quickly and you don't really have to keep count like you do with knitting. Plus you don't get on anyone's nerves clicking away with your needles!

I'd love to be able to find you the pattern but as usual I've found it, made it and lost it. It goes something along the lines of:

Make a long chain (as long as you'd like the scarf to be) , then double crochet into the 4th chain along. Keep Ch4 and double crochet in the corresponding loop in the chain below. You should end up with something that looks like the picture below.For alternate rows you do the same only replace the double crochets with single crochets. Keep going until the scarf is as thick as you want. I chose to stop with a skinny scarf so I could use it as a belt with my jeans.

Really nice scarf! I like the way you made a diagram to see it clearly.

Thanks Christina. I find pictures easier to follow than just a string of letters!
