Introduction: Faux Argyle Scarf

About: Catalog librarian Knit/crochet designer Blog:

I designed this crocheted scarf using a wedge-point stitch pattern. The sample is shown in [ Lion Brand Wool-Ease] (gray & pink) worked on a size I hook. I chained a length and began working the rows of wedges. When I turned the scarf lengthwise at the end of the 4th row, I realized I had created a "fake" argyle design! My daughter loves argyle and has a pair of gray & pink argyle socks to match, so this scarf now belongs to her. The crocheting is fast and fun. Each wedge point is simply a repeat of sc, hdc, dc, trc, and dtr, and it was exciting to see how the pattern played out in the finished scarf. A little fringe on each end and voila! The "Fake Argyle Scarf!!"
