Window Pane Scarf







Family fun time means yarn time for me. It's not boredom, but just a
productive way to keep my hands moving while enjoying conversation. We
spent the last few days with family (as I imagine you did too) and it
was WAY colder than I expected. The frigid North Texas demanded a
scarf. So, as I sat and listened to the wind and my dog howling
outside, I came up with this pattern. It only required a single skein
of yarn and a few hours of your time.



Materials: I-9 Crochet Hook, 150 to 220 yards worsted weight yarn (like Malabrigo or Manos Maxima)
This scarf is worked lengthwise, so although you have to get through a long foundation chain, there are only 5 or 7 rows.





Chain 203, the last 3 chain stitches count as the turning chain

R1: dc across all chain stitches, 200 dc

R2: chain 4 (counts as turning chain and chain 1), *1 dc, chain 1,
skip one dc from previous row, 1 dc in next stitch. Repeat from *
across all stitches.

R3-? You can make as many mesh rows as you like here, I made one scarf
with 5, another with only 3: begin as R2 to last square, make the final
dc in 2nd chain stitch over, leaving 3 chain stitches to act as last dc
from previous row.

Last Row: chain 3, dc across all stitches, including the single chain stitches between dc.

Tie off, make fringe.

Here's how I make fringe:
First cut lengths of yarn double the desired finished length of fringe,
also allow a bit of trim room. For example, if you want 6" fringe, cut
yarn about 12 1/2" long.
Grab a few strands and a hook and pull the middle point of your yarn
through work. Feed tails through resulting loop. Repeat and space
fringe evenly, then trim.
