Scarf for Men and Women

A friend of mine wanted me to make a scarf for her husband. She sent me a picture she liked and now I'm in the process of making it. I used in this scarf grey 100% acrylic yarn. The scarf is worked vertically. I will be posting the pictures of the scarf when I finish ensha2 Allah*.

Pattern:

Chain until it reaches about 190 cm.

Row 1: dc in fourth chain from the hook, turn.
Row 2: chain 1, sc in back loops only, turn.
Row 3: chain 3 (acts as 1 dc), dc in back loop of next stitches.

Repeat rows 2 and 3 until the width of the scarf becomes about 10cm.





* ensha2 Allah means in Arabic "if God wills".

  1. I'm new to crochet and it hadn't yet occurred to me to work vertically. I LOVE this. Can you point me to some tips on making the fringe at the end?

  4. Hiya!

    Such a lovely scarf!o__o

    I want to make one for my dad and was wondering if you could specify what size hook and how much yarn you used?

    Thank you for sharing this pattern with us all!:-)
