By: Teri Diamond for Diamond Crochet & Crafts © 2012


Completed Scarf & My Amazing Photography Skills ;)




Abbreviations Used:
CH – Chain
DC – Double Crochet
SC – Single Crochet
SL ST – Slip Stitch
SP – Space
ST – Stitch
Tutorials available at www.diamond-crafts.com/crochet_tutorials.htm
Materials Needed:
     Worsted Weight Yarn – I used Red Heart Super Saver for the sample
     K Hook (5.5)
     Yarn Needle
Size: 75” Long & Approx 6.5” Wide
Gauge: No real gauge necessary
Sample - 1 Block = approx. 1 1/4”
Notes:
     *Scarf is worked in a diagonal row
     *You are building up in “blocks” and as long as you are increasing in width and length you should have a # of blocks that is equal to the # of the row that you are on, example: on row 3 you would have 3 blocks, on row 4 there would be 4 blocks.
    *  You will NOT turn at the end of the row unless otherwise specified, you will actually let the piece turn itself by following the pattern.

End of Row 1
Directions:
Ch 6
Row 1 – Dc in 4th ch from hook and in 2 remaining ch sp. Ch 6.

Creating Block 2 in Row 2
Row 2 -  Dc in 4th ch from hook and in 2 
remaining ch sp, sl st into ch 3 sp from previous row (in the dc made by the ch 3, not in the individual ch), ch 3, 3 dc in same ch3 sp as sl st (on previous row) ch 6.

End of Row 3
Row 3 - Dc in 4th ch from hook and in 2 remaining ch st, *sl st into ch 3 sp from previous row, ch 3, 3 dc in same ch3 sp as sl st* repeat from * to * to the end of the row. ch 6.

Rows 4-6 – Repeat row 3

After the first 6 rows
{Sample uses 6 blocks across as width, if you would like yours to be wider or thinner you would simply increase or decrease the amount of rows that you repeat row 3.  When it is the desired width, simply move onto the body directions (our Row 7)}

Shows End of Row 7, before Ch 3
Row 7 – Dc in 4th ch from hook & 2 remaining ch st *sl st in 3 ch sp from previous row, ch 3, 3 dc in same 3 ch sp as sl st* repeat from * to * until you have 1 block remaining.  Ch 1, turn, sl st in each of the 3 dc you just made and in ch 3 sp.  Ch 3

Row 8 - *3 dc in ch 3 sp below, sl st into next ch 3 sp, ch 3* repeat from * to * to the end, ch 6.

Rows 9 – 73 – Repeat alternating Rows 7 & 8, end after a row 7 repeat

{If you would like your scarf to be longer or shorter you would simply increase or decrease the # of rows that you insert in the body. You MUST end after completing a repeat of Row 7.}
Shows Decreasing After Row 74

Row 74 – (Beginning of decrease) *3 dc in ch 3 sp below, sl st into next ch 3 sp, ch 3* repeat from * to * until you have 1 block remaining.  Ch 1, turn, sl st in each of the 3 dc you just made and in ch 3 sp.  Ch 3


Row 76
Rows 75 – 79 - Repeat Row 74.  Do NOT ch 3 at the end of Row 79. Fasten off and weave in ends.

Optional Edging:
Close-Up of the edging
Including the corners.
Attach to any block on the top of the 3dc block * 2 sc evenly in 3 dc block, 4 dc in next block (should be side of dc or 3 ch sp)* repeat from * to * around using 6 dc instead of 4 dc on corner sp.  Fasten off and weave in ends.
