I went from one extreme to the other with my latest projects - from a scarflette that just fits around my neck to a scarf so big I can also use it as a wrap.  The size of each was just due to the amount of yarn I had - one mini skein of multi-strand purple and three small skeins of a gorgeous merino wool blend for the wrap.

The scarflette is just a double shell stitch done with a J hook. The large scarf is a mesh stitch with attached ribbing at the ends.

It's actual name in the book I used is "lacy shell" - it's worked so 2 shell meet together at the bottom when you've done a number of rows they look like flowers.

Chain is a multiple of 6 plus 3. (row 1) SC in 2nd CH from hook and each stitch across, chain 3 and turn. (row 2) skip 3 SC, 3 DC in next SC, CH 2, 3 DC in same SC (a shell made). * Skip 5 SC, 3 DC in next SC, CH 2, 3 DC in same SC * Repeat between *s across row, to end, skip 3 after last shell, DC in last SC of row, chain 3 and turn work.
(row 3 - end) work a shell - 3 DC in next SC, CH 2, 3 DC in same SC - through the CH 2 space of the first shell in the previous row, repeat across work to end, DC in top of CH3, CH3 turn

This is from a 1972 book I found at an estate sale - Adventures in Crocheting by Barbara Ayers
