Crochet Scarf No. 6
Many times I have praised Japanese crochet patterns: They are easy to read because of their great charts and are often simple but always with a unique look. The scarf needs to be blocked, so the nice stitches comes out the best way.
The scarf is in a book which title I don’t know, since I cannot read any Japanese. I bought it on Amazon Japan and the scarf is named No. 6 in the book. It looks as if the book is no longer available on Amazon Japan. In Ravelry it is called the Mini Fringed Scarf. It seem to be available for free at Tezukuritown. I guess you have to be a registered member at Tezukuritown to get access to the free PDF. Unfortunately I don’t understand any Japanese and cannot help you with the registration process at Tezukuritown. You might be able to get help for this in Ravelry’s Japanese Knitting and Crochet Group. There are 25 patterns in the book, – mostly smaller projects like hats, scarves and shrugs, but also bigger ones as tops and vests.
The yarn is somewhat stiff for this project, but it gives the scarf a very special look. I used one skein Linea by Karen Noe. This is a 75% linen, 25% cotton sport weight yarn, 100 grams (3.53 ounces) – 260 meters (284 yards).Google+
