I'm having trouble with the beginning. it states Row 1: Turn. Ch 2. Sk 3 chs of base ch. *in next ch (4 dcs, ch 2, dc),. Does it mean to add 2 more chains to the 29 chains I just made? And what does base ch mean?

Hi yolandatahy40--Thanks for your comment. In answer to your questions...the base chain is the beginning chain of 29 stitches...so you're going to skip the first three chains of the chain of stitches you just created. For the chain 2, that is your turning chain. Once you've done 29 stitches, you're going to turn your work so the back side is facing you...then you chain 2 (the turning chain), skip 3 chains, and 4dc, chain 2, and 1 dc in the next chain...which would be the 4th chain from the hook. Hope that helps! Let me know if I can help in any other way!--FaveCrafts Editor

Please don't think of me as srange, but I am now working on this scarf, and I'm stuck on the abbrev. tch, on the second row of design.Appreciate the help.

tch or t-ch turning chain Complete list of abbreviations http://www.craftyarncouncil.com/cro == chet.html

I have just finished making this scarf and as a beginner at crochet found it remarkably easy to follow and make! I didn't have the correct yarn and as I was eager to try and make it used an aran weight yarn I had. I love it and it looks a more complicated stitch than it was. I have decided not to use a button but am crocheting a flower to fit through the loop to secure it. Ive posted a photo on my facebook and pintrest pages. Many thanks

I have made two. One I made a bit smaller for a frail elderly woman. I put the button on so she could wear it open o closed. She likes the button. When walking with her walker it keeps it in place. The 2nd one is mine and I love it. Very pretty, and I had no problem with the direction. Thank you!

I am confused about the direction to "sew button to loop." I understand making the loop, but sewing a button to the loop?

does it MEAN TO DO A DOUBLE CROCHET AFTER THE 4DBL. AND CHAIN 2

I think I will love the scarf, just have question. Where it says in parentheses, 4dc,ch2, and in green dc with an arrow, I'm not quite sure where to dc. In the same space as the 4 dc? Sorry just sure?

4dc, ch2, and dc is done all in the one chain. So you chain 29 sts. Turn work. Ch 2. Skip 3 ch of BASE chain line. 4dc, ch2, dc all in that 4th chain of BASE chain line. Ignore the green color and green arrow in directions. You will note if you pass your cursor over it, it's a bloomin' ad. Ugh Anyone else out there....correct my instructions if I've got it wrong but it seems to work on the sample I've done.

What shape and size is this scarf when completed? It's hard to tell from the pattern and photo.

Perhaps the writer has misunderstood the meaning of asymetrical ... and in overall form.

I like this pattern of Asymmety Scarf it is little hard to understand it

I find the pictures are so poor that it is too difficult to see what the garments actually look like, not just with this particular scarf, but many of the patterns

@debraloper 1769193, I'm sorry to hear of your trouble. I have two options for you: 1. You can contact the pattern designer directly for help. The designer is specified in the byline. 2. I might also suggest that you try posting your question to our sites Facebook page. It is monitored by the editor and is a great resource for helpful tips and suggestions from our Facebook friends; perhaps they can offer some guidance!

I am confused....sew button to the loop? or to other end for the loop???

I made two of this scarf last month and each time sewed the button to the loop.

Glad to know I'm not the only one with questions on where to sew the button. Thought I was missing something obvious. Mine is still sitting on the craft table, pending more opinions ;>)

It sounds like an error, surely! Try sewing the button at the other end and put the loop over it.

trying to make this scarf following pattern not asymmetrical ??????? it something missing

I also thought it meant the scarf itself was asymmetrical but it refers to the "shell" having 4 dc, 2 ch, then 1 dc, which is different from most shells which appear symmetric. I am currently following another scarf pattern whose shell is off-center like this one, so pattern is tilted sideways but adds visual appeal.
