Berries in the Snow Scarf

if you don't block it it twists and looks like this

This little scarf was so much fun to come up with!!! At first I was thinking I wanted a peppermint type scarf and I found a yarn that was a deep red and white however after making it I wasn't happy with peppermint as a name ( look this week for my peppermint twist slouch hat!) so I went over to the AllFreeCrochet facebook page and asked for help naming this! WOW over 100 comments with GREAT fun names it was hard to choose just one so I went with the one that had the most likes! Thank you to Sam Henderson for the winning name!!
if you block it, it will lay flat like this


supplies:
any 4 ply yarn.... I use redheart team spirit burgundy ( looks red to me)  and white
j hook ( I am using my J a lot lately)

* in this scarf you always want to dc around your chain 6 NEVER dc around your triple* This scarf was inspired by queen anne's lace
* there is lots of turning so don't get dizzy, and don't get confused it is quite easy and quick once you get it! Find me on facebook or email me if you need help!

Motif 1
chain 6 , triple ( total of 4 loops pull through 2 at a time) crochet into the first chain,turn, chain 3, 11 dc, ( 12 dc total first chain 3 counts as dc) chain 3 turn, sc, into the top of the first dc, chain 3 and sc into each stitch

Motif 2 and every other motif,

** You want to alternate the curve part of your motif so TURN every time you start a new motif.
motif one, chain 6 start of triple crochet *** see how I chained and  turned and the triple crochets so the chain part was opposite of the last motif? YOU always want that. 

to make a triple, its just like a double just one extra loop.
at this point you turn and chain 3 and do 11 dc around the ch 6 NOT the triple!

this is what your 2 motifs should look like, keep alternating until you have the length you like.
the start or motif 3, see you it alternates?

chain 6 *turn* , triple ( total of 4 loops pull through 2 at a time) crochet into the first chain,turn, chain 3, 11 dc, ( 12 dc total first chain 3 counts as dc)  SLIP stitch into the previous motif, chain 3 turn, sc, into the top of the first dc, chain 3 and sc into each stitch

continue motif 2 until you have the desired length I make most of my scarfs to be about 6 ft , a longer scarf and be slimming :) however feel free to make as long or short as you desire :)
Will you be making one of these? Let me know what colors you use comment below!

E crochet hook

Skill - Advanced Beginner
(* HINT this is basically a vertical row or a shell*)
First stitch***
Ch3, hdc 3rd ch from hook, ch1, 2 hdc ( all in the same space)
Every other one***
*turn, slip stitch until you and in the ch1 space, ch2,1hdc,ch1,2hdc* repeat until you have the length desired, * it should stretch slightly to slide on and off your wrist.. **

suggested lengths _
Woman's s/m ~18 shells

sew the 2 ends together and weave in your tail at least 4 inches worth so it will not come undone.

Christmas spirit Scarf, This yarn and scarf makes me think of the holidays!

This scarf make me want to go out and sing carol with sipping warm apple cider! make it in other colors for other looks! It the white variation it looks sweet and delicate! What color will you make it in?

This is a cute lacy scarf which is extremely quick and easy to make!
I started with a foundation dc here are the instructions in case you need them http://crochetchiq.blogspot.com/2012/07/how-to-crochet-foundation-double.html


 Row 1 - Start with a foundation Dc row of 13 ( if you would like a wider scarf just keep the number odd and you can add as many as you like)

Row 2-turn ch2, 1dc in the first dc, skip 1, 2dc in the next, skip 1, 2 dc in the next,skip 1, 2dc in the next, skip 1 2dc in the next, skip 1, 2dc in the next, skip 1, 2 dc in the last dc of the row

Row 3 until the the last row- turn ch 2, 1 dc in the first, *skip 1, 2dc in the next* repeat until the end of the row.
I added fringe, but this also looks great with a ch3 sl border
