Get to work!

LACY CROCHET SCARF
chain 2, 1 hdc in each stitch (101)
chain 1, 6 sc, *chain 2, skip 2, 1 sc* x 29, 6 sc
chain 2, 5 hdc , 2 hdc in one stitch, *skip chain space, 3 hdc in one st (worked in the sc of the previous row)* x 29, 2 hdc in one st, 5 hdc.
Repeat rows 5 and 6 until desired length, and finish your scarf off with 4 rows of hdc (just as you did at the beginning in rows 1-4).
Fasten off, secure the yarn.
Weave in ends as you go, by working over the loose ends with the next color, because it saves tons of time!
Below you can see a simplified chart for this scarf, in which all parts are color-coded, so that it’s easier to understand. Of course, the main part is not wide enough in the chart, but my aim was to show you the anatomy of this project.
You start in bottom left corner, so look for the black arrow.
- blue color indicates edging.
- yellow and pink differentiate modules of the main part.
- green is for the unfinished stitches.
How to count your own amount of foundation stitches
If you want to make your scarf wider or narrower than mine, you can calculate your own foundation chain, so don’t worry.
Remember, that you have to add 6 stitches for the right border and 6 stitches for the left border, because that’s additional 12 stitches for the overall count.
One module of the main part is 3 stitches, which you can see in the chart marked in yellow or pink, so that it’s easier to see. One module is two chain stitches and one single crochet in one row, and three half double crochet stitches in the next row.
Last module is unfinished, so you need additional two stitches to make it all even.
FORMULA for the scarf
6 (border) + *multiply of 3* + 2 + 6 (border) = *multiply of 3* + 14.
you are done!
