Written directions, made with a single ball of yarn (100 - 150 yards depending how long you want it). Free support.
Easy to modify and make it your own a fun project for yourself or a quick gift.
Overview: Curly bone branches is a simple and quick crochet project, using Chain (ch), Double Crochet (dc), Half Double Crochet (hdc), Slip Stitch (slp). Worked one half of the scarf at a time - the right side branches, then the top center branch and continuing down filling in the opposing left side branches and the final bottom branch. The project does need blocking but will still curl back up again slightly after wearing.
Modifications to yarn weight and needle size have all worked out well for me, so have some fun and play around a bit with yarns. Once you've made one it is also easy and fun to modify it for more complex branch formations.
US size E or F (3.5 - 3.75 mm) use a hook slightly smaller than recommended for your yarn choice
Aprox. 100 yds (91 m) of Aran Weight or 'Light' chunky yarn for a 23 total branch scarf more for longer/more branches (I used Red Heart Treasures for the multicolored sample)
Darning needle to sew in ends
T pins and blocking surface
gauge is not critical - just make your stiches nice and tight, a little smaller needle than the yarn recommends
130 yards of Worsted weight
