This autumnal beauty of a scarf is being modeled by my own feline punkin, Alex The Cat. It's not so totally original, since I found the stitch pattern here: http://www.nurhanne.com/crochet/stitches2.html







So here's what you do:

Materials:

Bulky Yarn (how many yards? I'm afraid I have no idea, not being the type who measures out how much yarn I'm using. I recycled a sweater for the yarn, it's a pumpkin-colored bulky acrylic/ramie blend.The scarf took up half a small knit sweater. If you were using, say, Lion Brand Homespun, I'd say a skein and a half.)

A J hook.

Make a chain as long as you want your scarf to be, because this scarf is worked horizontally. My chain was about five feet long.

Stitch pattern:

Base row: 1 dc in 2. ch from hook, * miss 3 ch, (3 tr, 1 ch, 3 tr) in next st, miss next 3 sts, 1 dc in next st. repeat from * to end of row, Turn with 3 ch.

1. row: Yoh, insert hook in first tr and draw up thread, yoh and draw though 2 loops, repeat for each of next 2 stitches (= 4 loops on hook), yoh and draw though all 4 loops. * 3 ch, 1 dc by inserting hoook under 1 ch between clusters of prev row, 3 ch, 1 'unfinished tr (as previously) in each of the 3 tr in row below, miss the dc, 1 'unfinished' tr in each of the next 3 tr (= 7 loops on hook), yoh and draw through all 7 loops. Repeat from * to end of row, ending with 1 'unfinished' tr in each of last 2 sts, yoh and draw through all 4 loops, 1 tr in last dc. (In subsequent rows this tr is worked in the top turning ch). Turn with 3 ch.

2. row: 3 tr in the st that 'closes' the 3 tr in row below, * insert hook in ch under the dc from previous row and work 1 dc, ( 3 tr, 1 ch, 3 tr) in st that 'closes' the 6 tr. repeat from * to end of row, ending with 3 tr in the st that 'closes' the 3 tr, 1 tr in in turning ch. Turn with 3 ch.

3. row: * 1 unfinished tr in each of first 3 tr, miss 1 dc, 1 unfinished tr in each of next 3 tr, yoh and draw through all 7 loops, 3 ch, 1 dc by inserting hoook under 1 ch between clusters of prev row, 3 ch. repeat from * to end of row, but finish by working 1 tr in the turning ch. turn with 2 ch.

4. row: * ( 3 tr, 1 ch, 3 tr) in st that 'closes' the 6 tr, 1 dc in dc before next cluster. Repeat from *, but finish with 1 tr in turning ch.

Now, one long side of the scarf is scalloped and one is flat, right? So you want to cut your yarn, reattach it on the beginning corner of the flat side, and work row 4 on the flat side. End off. Do a row of sc on each short end of the scarf, add tassels, and you're done!

This is a gorgeous color. I'm glad you posted it. I've been drooling over some pumpkin colored yarn forever and now I finally have an excuse to go buy it.

That scarf is lovely, great texture and colour. Great job. My cat decided to kill all of my scarfs, i guess he doesn't like the whey they attack my throat Smiley

Has anyone tried making this scarf yet? I'm having the worst time trying to get it right. I got through the chain and did the base row but I think it's backwards when I look at the picture. When I'm done with it, my stitches fan out like an open accordian fan because it says to put the 3 tr, 1 ch, and 3 tr again all into one stitch. Can that be right?Huh Or do you put them in 7 chain stitches (not just one)?

Also, row 1 seems screwed up to me as well. it says to yoh and then insert hook into the first tr and draw another loop through. Once you do this for 4 of the tr from the below row, the directions say you will only have 4 loops on your hook but I had like 9! The one I started with plus the 8 I added by yarning over AND pulling a loop through for each stitch.

Help PLEASE!!! I love this scarf and really want to get it to work!

Thanks,

Kim

I love this scarf too!!  It's gorgeous!  When I went to the Nurhanne site to look
at the stitch patterns there, I saw that she uses British crochet terms.  (It's the Harlequin pattern here http://www.nurhanne.net/filatim/crochet/p2.html  I believe.) 

So I think this pattern will need translating into American terms (unless you usually use British terms.... in which case I'm not a good enough crocheter to be able to tell you where you might have gone wrong!  Undecided)

To see a chart comparing British and American terms, you can go here
http://crochet.about.com/gi/dynamic/offsite.htm?zi=1/XJ&sdn=crochet&cdn=hobbies&tm=14&f=00&su=p445.92.150.ip_&tt=2&bt=0&bts=0&zu=http%3A//www.garnstudio.com/lang/en/includes/pinnestr.php
and click on the Crochet Terms Chart link.

Hoping this helps, and I'm glad you posted your question because it made me check!!   Grin

I'm still lost! The terms that the pattern uses seem to be the same for british and american. I just think the counting is wrong or I'm just interpreting the whole thing wrong. I think the wording just isn't clear enough for me. Abviously it's me that's not understanding it.

But if anyone else does try this, please let me know if you get it to work correctly. I did send her a not on her blog so I will see if she responds.

Thanks!

I'm sorry you're having such trouble...it's so long ago that I can't really remember  how to explain it, but I know it's basically a big repeat of a stitch called Catherine's Wheel. Maybe if you found another set of instructions for it it would make more sense.

I made two of these using the pattern. And I used it assuming it was American terms.
Where precisely are you having troubles?

I do recall it looking weird after the base row, but I worked through it and it came out fine.

As for the yoh, you're basically doing part of a double crochet, but leaving one loop on the hook each time so that you can thread them together into one stitch.

Does that make sense/help?

Beautiful scarf, myloveasdeep!  The color and design are so nice.  Thank you so much for the pattern!

And thank you for the links saralea.  It is written with British terms and needs to be converted for those used to using U.S. terms.

Has anyone tried making this scarf yet? I'm having the worst time trying to get it right. I got through the chain and did the base row but I think it's backwards when I look at the picture. When I'm done with it, my stitches fan out like an open accordian fan because it says to put the 3 tr, 1 ch, and 3 tr again all into one stitch.

How's it going Kim?  If you're used to using U.S. terms, be sure to write over the terms to avoid confusion.  The first row does fan out and you do work the (3tr, 1ch,3tr), or in the U.S., (3dc, 1sc, 3dc), into one stitch.
 
Then, like foreversandals writes above, you do partial doubles by doing a Yoh, insert in next stitch, draw up, Yoh and draw through 2 on the hook, each time leaving 1 stitch on the hook and repeating until there are 4 stitches on the hook and then you Yoh and draw through all 4 to complete.

I hope that helps.  Have you figured it out yet?

Are you sure its in British terms?
I worked it assuming it was in US terms and it worked out perfectly for me.

Hmmm....sorry I overlooked your earlier post and contradicted you, foreversandals!   Embarrassed   Now that I think about it, I guess I wouldn't put any money on it being written in British terms.  Converting it to U.S. was just the only way I figured I'd be left with 4 posts on the hook.  Now, I'll have to try it like you did.  It must work either way?  The U.S. conversion just ends up more compact?

It does work either way!   Shocked  I worked the pattern like it was written for U.S crocheters and then I worked it like it was written in British terms and the only difference in appearance is the width of the rows.  Interesting!

And, now it finally occurs to me, (Doh!), to ask you, myloveasdeep,  if you wrote your pattern in British-anese, or in U.S.-anese?

Don't worry about it Infinite Annie.

Once you started saying it was in British terms and I realized I did it in American, I figured that it had to work up both ways. Otherwise one of the two of us would have scarves that were messed up somehow.  Cheesy

I do await myloveasdeep's answer though.



And michelleandherguitar. Do make the scarf. It works up beautifully [in American or British terms]. I've given one of the ones I've made away and she loved it.

Do you know, I have no idea? I used the instructions for Catherine's Wheel from a website...I think it might have been crochetpatterncentral. I'd bet American, personally.

Well, it's a super pretty stitch pattern and I'm glad you got us all going on it!  I think working the pattern as if it's written in American terms makes you a scarf a whole lot quicker, because of the size of the triples.   Cheesy

Are you having any luck yet, MyDestny?

I loved this scarf and decided to make it after reading the pattern, making it my
first official big crochet project. With some help from my sister-in-law I set out
with some yarn I had bought and saved over about a year ago and thought that
it would be perfect for it.
