Dragon Slayer Scarf


 


 This Pattern was originally posted on Crochetvolution which is no longer operational. I will be moving the patterns over to my blog so you can continue to use the free patterns
Difficulty: Easy to intermediate

With my move to a colder climate draws nearer I have started a collection of scarves, and just warmer things in general. I wanted a scarf that was thick and cozy, but had a lacey look to it at the same time. This pattern is what resulted. The things that I love about this scarf are that you determine the length of the scarf in the first row, and that it is worked horizontally not vertically. The other thing that I like is that it is only three rows, so it is really easy to work up.

Pattern
Row 1: Ch 9, join with sl st in 1st ch to make a loop, ch 3, make 8 dc in loop, *ch 9, sl st into last dc made, ch 2, sl st in loop with last dc (the first loop), turn so that string ends up in front of work, 9 dc in new loop* continue repeating *to* till you have your desired length and your end loops are facing opposite directions.

Row 2: Ch 5(counts as first dc and ch 2), turn, [dc in next dc, ch 2] five times, dc in next dc, sc in ch loop, [dc in next dc, ch 2] 6 times, dc om next dc, sc in ch loop,* repeat *to*  till the end of the row sl into first dc of row one.

Row 3: Ch 1, turn, *sc in sc,* [sc in next dc, picot, sc in next ch space] 6 times, sc in next dc, and sc in next sc*, repeat *to * till end of the row. Finish Off.

Turn scarf over and repeat rows 2 and 3 on the other side of the loops. Finish off and weave in all ends.
