Sara's Stripey Scarf
I made this scarf as a b-day present for my friend Sara while I was in Europe. She said she wanted something cool from Europe and I figured what could be cooler than a scarf made while I was traveling around the continent. I bought the yarn for this scarf in Bern and began working on it on the train from Italy to Vienna. I actually didn't finish it until I got back but it technically was in every country I was in so it is well traveled.
I used about 3 skeins that were approximately 80 meters each. The yarn was a wool, cotton, and acrylic. Approximatley 275 yards 2 parts color A 1 part color B
Size J hook
With color A chain 16 turn and then 15 sc in the previous row ch 1 to turn
repeat color A for 19 more rows. (20 rows total)
Join in turn with color B. Sc in each stitch turn. Repeat for 10 rows.
Continue pattern with 20 rows of color A and the 10 rows of color B until desired length.
End with block of color A.
finish off and join in ends.
