Hi! I have made a whole bunch of scarves lately for gifts. Here is a short keyhole scarf made with Lion Brand Chenille Thick and Quick and a P hook. It is super easy and goes really fast--I mean really fast! You could make several in one evening. As you can see, the stitches are big and loose.
I tend to make things up as I go along, and my mom asked me to write out the pattern for this short keyhole scarf, so I'm sharing it with you, too. I've never written out a pattern before, so if I need to correct something, please let me know.
Super bulky yarn (category 6) with P hook
Row 1: hdc in second stitch from hook and in each stitch to the end of the row; ch 1 and turn
Row 2: (count ch 1 as first stitch) hdc in each stitch across; ch 1 and turn
Row 3: hdc in first 12 stitches; ch 3; skip 3 stitches; hdc in each stitch to the end of the row; ch 1 and turn
Row 4: hdc in each stitch to end of row; ch 1 and turn (be sure that you hdc three stitches on the three chains when you get to it)
Row 5: hdc in each stitch to end of row; ch 1 and turn; finish off
Weave in ends
Here is another keyhole scarf I made in red and a longer skinny scarf in the blue. I'm loving this yarn.
