It’s a fabric of 100% slip stitches -- an elementary (and often underestimated) crochet stitch. This antique form of crochet is often called “Bosnian Crochet” although this scarf is not crocheted in the round.
**Skill Level:** This quick one-skein pattern is a great introduction to Slip Stitch Crochet. It’s rated Easy because of the stitch and simple design. (It’s mindless enough that I can make it while talking on the phone.) It may be Easy-Intermediate for some because the looser gauge and larger-than-normal hook size might be a new experience.
Even the simplest pattern and stitch like this one results in a fabric with fascinating qualities. I love what this scarf feels like: drapey, stretchy, and flat--not the crochet some people expect, and not stiff like traditional Slip Stitch/Bosnian Crochet either! My favorite way to wear it is wrapped 2 or 3 times as a headband. It looks casually chic.
**Choosing the Yarn:**
The best yarn would be a fingering/sock weight
