Working with a fine yarn was something of a new experience for me. I had to use a smaller hook, which made the work slower going initially, and I had was all thumbs for a bit. But once I got the hang of it, it was smooth sailing. I love the look of the scarf, as it drapes rather nicely and looks a tad more elegant than if I had used a worsted yarn.
Stitches used--chain (ch), slip stitch (sl st), double crochet (dc).
I used a 3.75mm hook and approximately 400yards of yarn.
Row 1: DC in the ridge of second ch from the hook, and in each stitch across. Ch 1, turn.
Row2: DC in first stitch. Skip next stitch, dc in next, cross back and dc in skipped stitch. One crossed double crochet made. Repeat across. End with a double crochet in last stitch. Ch 1, turn.
Repeat rows 1 and 2 for pattern until desired length. Fasten off and weave in ends.
I had a lot of fun crocheting this, and I can't wait till the cooler weather sets in--so I can wear this lovely creation.
