Winter happies

April 27, 2012

I adapted this design from a vintage pattern for a crocheted choker. I’ve made it a few times, and I’ve had the best results with a nice lush worsted weight like Lamb’s Pride and a 6.5 (metal; not sure if that matters to you, but it does to me) hook. Having a fairly tight gauge will ensure your scarf is slightly corkscrewy.

Cluster stitch for the scarf is like so: (YO, insert hook into st, yo, pull through, pull through 2 lps on hook)4x. You’ll have a total of five loops on the hook. Draw through all of them, and voila, your cluster st is made.

Loosely chain 154 sts.

1st row (right side): 1dc in 8th ch from hook. *Ch2. Skip 2 ch. 1dc in next ch. Repeat from * to end of chain. Turn.

2nd row: SS in 1st ch2 sp. Ch2. CL, ch3, CL in same space. CL, ch3, CL in each ch-3 sp to the end of the row. Turn.

3rd row: SS in 1st ch3 sp. (2 dc, ch3, 2dc) in same sp. (2dc, ch3, 2dc) in next ch3 space and repeat to the end of the row. SS in top of Ch2 and fasten off.

With wrong side facing, join yarn to 1st st of foundation ch and repeat 2nd and 3rd rows
