Going to Wales Scarf Pattern



Thank you so much for the comments on my post about my travel crochet project, the scarf I made while 'Going to Wales'.

It turns out a few of you also thought that it might be just the thing you'd like to take on your travels too, so thought I'd quickly make a few notes on the pattern for mine so you could do just that.

While it's nothing fussy or fancy, no charts or tutorials or the like, I hope you'll find it useful all the same.  I'm going to pop it just a little further down the post and it consists of the written directions for the stitch pattern I used, notes on the very simple border that I added and a little guidance on how mine worked out.

Oh, and I've included versions with both UK and US terms this time around.  I hope you'll find that helpful too.

Well, let's not dilly dally any longer my friends, the pattern awaits below.
Just scroll down a little more and it shall be yours to enjoy!



: :  GOING TO WALES SCARF : :

by Sandra Paul

Yarn:  Head over Heels by Stylecraft
(100g 4ply/sock yarn)

Hook: 3.5mm/ USA E

Actually you could use any yarn you like for the pattern, you'll just need to adjust the stitch count and number of rows accordingly.  And use a hook size appropriate for your yarn of course.

My Scarf

I did 66 chains to start and worked 49 repeats, so 51 of the right side rows in total.

I played yarn chicken and kept repeating rows, guessing the amount to leave for the border.  (I just ripped back a row or two when I didn’t have enough first time around!)  My whole scarf weighed a total of 107g so I got a nice generous skein, if yours isn’t quite so plump you may need to adjust the number of rows you work.

✽ ✽    UK Terms   ✽ ✽ 

Starting chain:  a multiple of 8 plus 2

Row 1:  1dc in 2nd ch from hook, *skip 3ch, (3tr, 5ch, 3tr) all in next ch, skip 3ch, 1dc in next ch,* repeat from * to * to end of ch.  [Right side]

Row 2:  4ch, skip 2tr, 1tr in tr, *3ch, dc in ch sp, 3ch, 2trtog: [1st leg in 1st tr, skip (2tr, 1dc, 2tr), 2nd leg in 3rd tr],* repeat from * to * to last ch sp, 3ch, 2trtog: [1st leg in 1st tr, skip 2 tr, 2nd leg in end dc].

Row 3:  1ch, dc in 1st st [trtog], *skip 3 ch, (3tr, 5ch, 3tr) in dc, skip 3 ch, 1dc in trtog,* repeat from * to * end of row.

Repeat rows 2 and 3 as many times as required, ending on a Row 2.

With yarn still attached, flip the work to the right side and then crochet the border around the edge:

Round 1:  1ch, (1dc, 2ch, 1dc) in same place, *4ch, skip ch, (1dc, 2ch, 1dc) in dc,* repeat from * to * around the scarf, working into the dc’s on the top and side edges and working into the ch at the base of the tr sts along the bottom edge.
