Holiday Scarf Pattern

This is for anyone who happens on my blog and would like to make an easy, fun and pretty little gift. It is my own design using Rowan Kidsilk Night, a version of their popular Kidsilk Haze with a little lurex spun in with the other fibers. It makes for a festive little accessory and you can make a few of them from one ball; definately a moneysaver if you are in budget mode.

Crocheted Holiday Scarf...The Flower Bed

With a letter K crochet hook, chain about 175 stitches. This will make about a 6' scarf, long enough to wrap about your neck loosely a couple of times. Make a treble crochet stitch in the 5th loop from the end. Make 4 more treble crochet stitches in the same loop. There should be 5 tc's plus the beginning 5-loop chain. Slip stitch into the 5th loop from the last tc. Make 6 tc's in this same loop. Slip stitch into the 5th loop from the last tc and continue in this pattern until the end loop has the 6 tc's complete. You are now going to work on the other side, so just turn the work so that the other side of the original chain is workable. Using the same loops that you used to make the 6 tc's on the other side, begin the pattern. At the end of the chain and the last 6 tc's are complete, cut the yarn and hook it through the last stitch to tie off. Weave in ends.

That scarf is gorgeous. I've been knitting only this holiday, but I may have to whip out the crochet needle!
