This is such a cute pattern you will love wearing around. Who says bowties are just for men? This is an intermediate crochet pattern that uses a double-ended crochet hook.
- RED HEART® “Soft Yarn®: 1 ball each 9440 Lt Grey
- Heather A, 9520 Seafoam B.
- Crochet Hooks: 6.5mm [US K-10½] – 10” double-ended crochet hook; 6.5 mm [US K-10½] standard hook (used for edging only).
- Two stitch holders (at least 4” length), tapestry needle.
- GAUGE: 19 sts = 4”; 24 rows = 4” in double hook pattern.
CHECK YOUR GAUGE. Use any size hook to obtain the gauge.
The ends and center sections of the scarf are worked in the double-ended hook technique. The pick-up action and work-off action are listed as two separate rows.
The Keyhole sections are worked in Tunisian Crochet where the pick-up and work-off actions comprise one row. A row is complete when you have one stitch remaining on the hook.
When working in horizontal stitches, insert hook under top loop only.
Horiz = horizontal
