Autumn blues

May 5, 2012

This scarf is the prototype for the winter happies scarf. The clusters in this one are more jumbled than the ones in the winter happies version, but they work up great with a big hook and nice bouncy chunky yarn; like with most scarves, though, gauge, hook size and yarn weight isn’t terribly important for this. The lace/cluster pattern will look different depending on your choices but it’ll always look lovely. I’d like to try to create this with a tiny hook and very lacy yarn next.
I used 1 skein (50g) of Stylecraft Nature’s Way for the centre and a lighter worsted-weight mystery wool for the lacy border.

Clusters (CL) make up the bulk of the scarf. Here’s how to make one: (YO and insert hook through space. YO and draw hook through space) three times. TO and draw through all loops on hook. Easy!

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.
