Rows 1 – to desired width (DC rows)
Dc into third ch from hook (the ch 2 will not count as a stitch) *DC in all sts,*ch 1 and turn your work. Pull up to elongate your loop before starting your first DC of row 2 (the ch 1 & elongated loop does not count as a stitch, it’s just a step up.
Dc into first stitch of row *DC in all sts,* ch 1 and turn your work. Pull up to elongate your loop before starting row 3
Dc as many rows as you wish until you get your desired width. 4 rows for a skinny scarf if you wanted to make one for a child. Or 6 for a wide adult scarf. This is up to you. It doesn’t matter for the pattern how many rows you do. Just keep it an even number of rows. The first and last row of DC’s will not be worked, to leave you a nice boarder on the scarf.
When your ready ch one and cut your yarn, now we will be doing the twisted loop stitch. You can change colors now to make your ruffles stick out more, or if your using variegated yarn, then you could use the same color. It’s up to you. If your making the scarf for a child and you want to make a thicker scarf then I recommend only doing 6 rows and doing the twisted loop stitch on two rows of each side that that it’s not to heavy for the child. Recommend to stick to 4 rows for a child though.
Row 1 of Twisted loop stitch
Skipping first row of DC’s to leave yourself a border on this side of scarf. Go into the 2nd row of dc’s. Start by slip stitching onto the second dc post of the row and ch 7, sl st onto the post of the following DC.* Ch 7 again and sl st onto the following post of the next DC* and repeat until last DC of the row, this last DC of the row will not be worked either. When you get to the end of the row ch 1 and cut your yarn, leave a tail to be worked in later.
Repeat row 1 until you have all of your rows completed except for the first and last rows. Leaving a border.
When you’re finished with one side and you’re ready to do the back side you will work the twisted stitch as follows.
To do the rows in between, you want to attach your yarn as you did before, only this time you will be working above the sl st connections you made from the other side.
Repeat until you have the rows desired completed on this side.
Now you might have noticed that the chain part of your scarf is tighter than the DC side. To even this up, attach your yarn on the looser DC side and
*sc 1, sc dec,* repeat for the row. Cut yarn leaving a tail long enough to be worked in with a tapestry needle.
Other color options:
Or alternate the colors on the base row and then alternate the color of the ruffles. The back looks cool as well, so you don’t have to so ruffles on one side if you don’t want to 🙂
Change colors every row if you like! Skies the limit!
