Crochet Scarf 3 - Blue & White

View my items for sale here:
 This is my 3rd scarf made for a child. hence the more narrow width. I made it with a slight curve so when it's worn it falls in two different ways. Curved to the outsides as above, or falling down straight as seen below.
it actually falls more straight than shown in the photo on the towel when actually worn, as seen above. After trying it on I decided to add a trim to the scarf with some remaining yarn. 
 By stitching the last row with a slip stitch using a smaller hook (H) it gave the scarf a slight curve.
In many of the photos the Baby blue looks almost purple or lavender. This is the color in natural light near a window. The white is a pearly white (Vintage white).  The Bernat Baby Blanket white is a more pure white color.

Total time – 2 hours 10 minutes

Measurements 54” x 4”

·         Bernat Blanket Yarn Baby blue and Vintage White


Using an 8 mm hook (H) 100 chains, turn

Skip 2 chains, in 3rd chain double crochet, then double crochet in ever chain until the end

At the last chain double crochet then chain up 2 and turn work around

Double crochet in the same stitch as the 2 chains

Double crochet in each chain down the row until the end and repeat until the desired width. For this scarf I did 5 rows of doubt crochet. The 1st and 3rd and 5th with Vintage white, and the 2nd and 4th row with Baby blue. After the 5th row attach a slip stitch to finish it off to match the beginning chain stitch from the first row. This evened out the thickness of the last row to match the first row.

When done on each end of the width of the scarf using a smaller hook, 5 mm (H) do 2 rows of single crochet stitches with one chain in the corners before turning with baby blue.
