A new scarf

A very long scarf as a matter of fact 180 cm (72 inches) and 18 cm wide (7.2 inches)

scarf 11 scarf 0 scarf

Made with a 5 mm hook and Alize Angora ( suitable to 1-4 crochet hook), alternating stitches. (Tip: use a bigger hook then specified on label to be more lacy, or a smaller, if you don’t  like lace crochet).

Gauge: not important

Chain 250

Row 1: 1 dc in each ch.  250 dc. [UK: 1 treble in each ch, 250 tr].

Next rows:

I used some cluster flowers (modified):

pattern 1

I inserted 10 dc [ UK treble] between flowers and in the middle I joined with sc [hdc].

Instead of  1 dc, ch 1 [ 1 tr ch 1], I made 1 sc, ch 1 [1 tr, ch 1].

Next row – broomstick lace: ( without a broom: ch 3, * pick up 4 loops from each next 4 st, yarn over, pull yarn through 4 loops on the hook, yarn over, draw yarn through last 2 loops on hook; turn those 4 loops to see the middle and work 4 sc [hdc] in the middle*, repeat *_* until the end of the row, finish with 1 dc.

Here is a Teresa Richardson’ s tutorial for broomstick lace, if you own one, or you can use a piece of cardboard…
