I used Sateen yarn. I didn’t like it because the threads (6) kept coming apart making it difficult to crochet. I suggest the following:
100% Crochet Thread (your choice brand/color):
# 10 thread; # 6 or 7 steel crochet hook
# 3 thread; #0 or 1 steel crochet hook
Gauge: It doesn’t matter
Sl St: slip stitch
Sc: single crochet
Dc: double crochet
CS: cross stitch
NOTE: Sections are in 10 st sequences
Directions for Cross Stitch:
Working in a chain of stitches; Make dc in stitch indicated (1st leg of cross stitch), from the back and in previous st make dc (2nd leg of cross stitch). See Fig 1 thru Fig 3 below:
Beg: Ch 500
Row 1, Sec 1: Turn, dc in 4th ch from hook (beg ch counts as 1 dc, plus 1 made in ch 4 from hook) dc in next 8 chs; (10 dc)
Row 1, Sec 2: Ch 10, sk 10 chs; (10 ch)
Row 1, Sec 3: Make 10 dc in next 10 chs (10 dc)
Row 1, Sec 4: Ch 2, sk 2 chs, make CS, ch 2, sk 2 chs, make CS, ch 2 (2 CS)
Row 1, Sec 5: sk 2 chs, make 10 dc in next 10 chs
Repeat Row 1, Sec 2 thru 5 across row of chains ending with last sequence of dc’s.
Row 2, Sec 1: Turn, ch 3 (counts as first dc) make 9 dc
Row 2, Sec 2: Ch 10, sk 10 chs
Row 2, Sec 3: Make 10 dc in next 10 chs
Row 2, Sec 4: Ch 4, sk 2 chs and CS, make CS in 2 chs between CSs in previous row. (See Fig’s 1 thru 4 above).
Row 2, Sec 5: Sk 4 chs, make 10 dc in next 10 dc
Repeat Row 2, Sec 2 – 5 across row of chains ending with last sequence of dc’s.
Row 3, Seq 1: Turn, ch 3 (counts as first dc) make 9 dc
Row 3, Sec 2: Ch 10, sk 10 chs
Row 3, Sec 3: Make 10 dc in next 10 chs
Row 3, Sec 4: Ch 2, sk 2 chs, make CS, ch 2, sk 2 chs, make CS, ch 2 (2 CS)
Row 3, Sec 5: Sk 2 chs, make 10 dc in last 10 chs of row. DO NOT FASTEN OFF
Edging : Foundation requires 8 sc on end
Foundation Row: Ch 1, sc in top of last dc made, 1 sc in post, sc in top of middle row, 2 sc in post, sc in top of first row, 1 sc in post, sc in bottom edge.
Should look like this:
Row 2: Turn, sl st in leg of CS, ch 3,make 2 CS, dc in next st (you are decreasing CS’s as you level up)
Row 3: Turn, sl st in leg of CS, make 1 CS, dc in next st
Row 4: Ch 5, sl st in top of ch 3 (dc) at end of previous row.
Row 5: Ch 1 turn, 10 sc in ch-5 loop. Fasten off, sew in ends to keep secure.Tassels:
Using the end of your scarf, lay on hard flat surface (table works well), pull from skein the length of 5 sections for 10 lengths of thread. Take thread and fold in half — tie a different color thread to keep together. Pull the folded part of the thread through the loop at the end of the scarf from the wrong side (the wrong side is the one with the bumps at the top and bottom row and should be facing the surface of the table) Once the thread has been pulled through the loop, open the end and remove the thread holding it; with your left hand hold the loop open with your fingers sticking through the opening, take the loose end and pull it through the opening and pull tightly. If you find any lumps, take a couple of strands of thread and tug on them to make the tassel smooth.Repeat for other end making sure the tassel is pulled up through the same side. If you’ve never done this before, practice on a few strands of thread first.

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.
