Works from the bottom up. Chain 7, join with slipstitch,(1 loop)
chain 5, sc in ch 7 ring, chain 3, dc in chain 7 ring. (2 loops)
Chain 5, sc in same loop you ended the dc in, chain 3, sc in chain 5 loop from previous row, chain 3, dc in chain 5 loop from previous row. (3 loops)
Work in same pattern, chain 5 to start, sc in last loop of previous row,then chain 3 loops between loops on the previous row, chain 3, double crochet in first loop of previous row.

Keep going until it's whatever size you want, then chain 1 to turn, work sc in top of dc stitch you came out of, chain 2, sc in next loop, repeat across. to finish, 3 scs in each loop except the corners, 7 scs in the corners.

For this kerchief, I used Aunt Lydia's fashion crochet thread and a size G hook, the drape is better with a slightly big hook for your yarn type.

Lots of variations possible. It would be easy to add beads or fancy edgings or whatever.

Very cute, I've been looking for one of these to make this weekend. If it is as fast as it looks to make, I might add it to the list of things I'm gonna pop out this year for Christmas.

It is that fast. Right now I'm haunting ebay for the right yarn to make myself a shawl with it. It's a great tv project because you don't really have to pay that much attention.
