Weekend Project

Woven Scarf Pattern
Yarn: Rowan Kid Soft in Storm (#754) 2 skeins x 50 grams and Gedifra Tecno Hair in Grey (#9616) 1 x 50 grams

Needles: 1 pair US #15 needles (10 mm) and crochet hook, size I

Tension: 10 stitches and 12 rows to four inches measured over pattern stitch using US #15 needles and a double strand of Rowan Kid Soft.

Scarf: Using a double strand of Kid Soft, cast on 15 stitches. Purl one WS row. Continue in woven stitch as follows:
Row 1 (RS): K1, *yf, sl1, yb, K1; rep from * to end.
Row 2: Purl.
Row 3: K2, *yf, sl1, yb, K1; rep from * to last st, K1.
Row 4: Purl.
Repeat these 4 rows until yarn is almost used up, ending with Row 4 and then binding off and weaving in ends. Block scarf by gently pressing using a warm iron over a damp cloth.

Furry Border: Using the Gedifra Tecno Hair and crochet hook, single crochet through each stitch along the border of the scarf, along all sides, twice. If you want a fluffier edge, crochet around border for a third time. Weave in ends.
