On the original scarf, the ribbing looks knit, not crocheted...

this scarf would be really cute done in angora... yummy soft.

Homebunnyj, I tried that, and it just didn't look right. I tried doing alternating rows of fpsc/bpsc and then working the scarf from the sides of that, and while it looked great at the beginning, I just couldn't make it work at the end so that it was readable. So ...

This was done with an I-hook and Caron's Simply Soft yarn, with a J-hook used for the end trim cuz I tend to pull my SCs really tight. I'm sure in a brushed mohair it would look much more like the original idea. Also, I honestly have NO idea how much yarn this would take. I got 17 repeats out of about 188 yards of yarn, so my math guesstimate is close to 300 yards.

Here's what I've got. I'm gonna get some pix once the batteries charge back up for the camera and put it all in a .pdf file and add the pictures here for details on some of the rows. Hope it makes sense, and enjoy!

WOW! That is impressive! I wish I could have that kind of talent for figuring out patterns like you do DragonessD. That scarf is simply lovely!

Thanks! *bows and blushes* Of course, having 30+ years experience helps, too. Been doing this since I was 7. The hard part is getting it so it makes sense to other people, too

If you have your heart set on the ribbing, you could always knit it (if you know how) and then bind off and pick up stitches to start the crocheted section.

You're all very welcome. Hopefully in the next day or two I'll have a hat pattern written out to go with it.

If you want ribbing, by all means go for it! If you're knitting it, skip the CH 20 and the 19 SC and start with the SC, CH1 section of the trim. Then when you're finished, skip the 19 SC and pick up your stitches. Sadly, it would take me as long to knit an inch of ribbing as it did to do the scarf.
