My daughter Selma is in Peace Camp this week and she has a very
favorite counselor named Ariel who, I’m guessing, is about 15. She
wanted to give her a little present on the last day, so I quickly made
her this kerchief using some flag yarn I got from the Crochetville Sea of Yarn Swap.
1 oz. or less worsted weight yarn (I used some vintage Dupont Orlon I
snagged at Value Village, the orlon made the kerchif a bit heavy, it
would also be nice in a lighter-weight cotton, but I went with it
because I liked the color combination)
1 ball carrying weight novelty yarn–I used Red Heart Tiki in “Aruba”.
Size H/5mm crochet hook
About 10″ across the widest part.
As the kerchief is crocheted to fit, gauge is not essential for this pattern.
Note, Main yarn and carrying yarn are held together throughout.
Chain 4, DC in 4th chain from hook. Chain 3, turn.
Row 2, (do not skip a stitch) DC in stitch right next to hook, and DC all the way across. 2DC in last stitch (turning chain)
Repeat Row 2 18 times. When you’ve finished the last row, chain 42, turn, sc back to the corner of the kerchif and fasten off.
Join yarn with a slip stitch to the opposite corner. Chain 42, turn, sc back to the corner and fasten off.
Weave in ends.
You can block the ties so they lie flat, but I actually like the curly look.
