Here is a quick, one skein scarf that looks complicated but is really quite easy. To me the pattern looks like a garden maze, but the yarn I used also looks like Maize corn. So I guess it could really be called a Maze, Maize scarf.
- Loops and Threads (Michaels Store Brand) Impeccable, Gensing 1 skein
- H Hook (5 mm)
Gauge is not really important for this pattern, but if you want to be sure to use only one skein of yarn,
8 scs = 2 inches
6 FPDC rows (not stretched out) = 2 inches
ch(s)--chain(s) sc(s)--single crochet(s)
dc--double crochet FPDC--front post double crochet
FPDC--Front Post Double Crochet, go to this page for a how-to.
Row 1: Sc in second ch from hook (I did my foundation row in the back nub of the ch) and in each ch to the end (21 scs.) Turn.
|Front of Chain|
|Insert hook into the nub. It helps if you chain loosely|
|Top. See how they both look the same, it gives it a more finished look.|
Row 2: Ch 4 (counts as dc, ch 1), sk one sc, dc in next sc, *ch 1, sk sc, dc in next sc* 9 times (11 dcs and 10 ch-1 sps). Turn.
Row 3: Ch 4 (counts as dc, ch 1), FPDC in second dc of previous row *ch 1, FPDC in next dc of previous row*8 times, ch 1, FPDC over top of turning ch. (11 dcs and 10 ch-1 sps). Turn.
Rows 4-7: Repeat Row 3.
Row 8: Ch 1, sc in first dc, *sc in ch-1 sp, sc in FPDC* 9, sc in last ch-1 sp, sc in top of turning ch. (21 scs). Turn.
|sc in first dc|
|sc in ch-1 sp|
Row 9: Ch 3, sk 1st and second scs, sc in next sc, *ch 3, sk 2 scs, sc in next sc* 6 times. (7 ch-3 sps, 7 scs). Turn.
Rows 10: Ch 3, sc in second sc, *ch 3, sc in next sc* 5 times, ch 3, sc in first ch of beginning ch-3 sp. (7 ch-3 sps, 7 scs). Turn.
|sc in first ch of beginning ch-3 sp|
Rows 11-14: Repeat Row 10.
Row 15: Ch 1, sc in first sc, 2 scs in ch-3 sp, *sc in sc, 2 scs in ch-3 sp* 6 times, (21 scs). Turn.
Now go back and repeat from Row 2 to Row 15 until you have used up most of your yarn. I ended my scarf on a Row 8 so that it looks the same on both ends. I was able to repeat the full pattern (from beginning to end) 9 times, and then added Rows 2 to 8 at the end. Weave in ends.
