I use US Crochet stitch terminology
CH – chain
SL ST – slip stitch
DC – double crochet
I made this scarf using the lacy starry-eyed stitch.
Create a foundation chain that is multiplied by four plus four
ROW 1: Work 1 DC into the 8th CH from hook (to create corner loop), work (1 CH, 1 DC) 3 times into same CH.
*SKIP 3 CH, work k 1 DC into next CH, work (1 CH, 1 DC) 3 times into the same CH (1 SHELL). Repeat from * until last 4 CH, SKIP 3 CH, work 1 DC into last CH, TURN
ROW 2: CH 3, *work 1 DC into the middle of the SHELL, work (1 CH, 1 DC) 3 times into same CH space. Repeat from * until last ST, work 1 DC into middle of corner loop space, TURN
Repeat ROW 2 for required length.
Approx 30 cm before end I switched to the pink and continued until my desired length.
Fasten off and weave in ends.
Flower: (Make 3)
Approx 5 cm x 5 cm in diameter
With yellow yarn, make a magic ring
RND 1: CH 3 (counts as 1 DC), work 11 DC into ring, SL ST into top of 3 CH (12 DC). Fasten off and weave in ends
RND 2: Join cream yarn into any.
*SL ST into next 2 STS, CH 3, work 2 DC into same ST. Repeat from * until end of round (6 x petals). SL ST into first ST, fasten off and leave a tail for sewing.
Attach the flowers on to the line where the color changed.
I have been a crochet designer for more than 10 years. I love to think outside the box and to try and do things a bit differently. I love to learn new techniques and to challenge myself. I firmly believe that crochet should fun and evoke joy and pleasure. Creating and designing is one of my life's passions.
