March crochet scarf
In 2014 I gave myself a personal challenge: design one crochet scarf per month. This is the 3rd design, hence it is March! For the March scarf I decided on a lengthways design. It takes a little time to get started and you need a little care when counting your foundation chain (stitch markers help). Once you have completed the foundation you will find it works up quickly, with 15 rows, a neat edging border and a fancy trim at either end. Of course you do not need to add the fancy trim, if you prefer it plain (possibly for a man) then a simple edging of double crochet (US single crochet) would be neat. The design incorporates a crossed treble (US crossed double crochet) which is one of my favourite stitches, because of this I class it as intermediate. It works best with a yarn with good drape - I used one with a high silk content (Dazzling by The Natural Dye Studio). It requires about 400m of 4 ply yarn. It is written In English and US crochet terms and is charted.
