There are lots of knitted scarves & shawls that are designed specifically for self striping or maki yarns. This scarf was designed as the crochet version.
This unique slip stitch scarf is worked entirely in slip stitch crochet, and as such, should be crocheted using a larger than normal hook (such as a K or L, a hook with a very pointy end). This pattern is recommended for intermediate crocheters: the pattern itself is very easy, but keeping your tension even is the tricky part!
Pattern is written for two sizes, a 60" or 72" long version.

My name is Anastacia, and I am the scrap yarn/one skein queen. I buy my yarn mainly at yard sales/thrift stores, so I got used to making do with what I could find. So most of my patterns are designed to use up the odd skeins or leftovers in your life, and are geared towards beginner crocheters or those who just want a fast, easy, but still pretty item.
I'm a 30 something adult living in MA. Iâ€™m married, have a wonderful cat named Wedgie, & I work full time. I also teach knitting & crocheting at my local Michael's & squeeze in designing as many hours as I can a week.
I do love to hear from everyone, but please remember that I am busy, just like you, & will reply as soon as I can.
All of my patterns use USA terms & abbreviations.
I try to layout my patterns as simply as possible to save money for people printing at home. My patterns are as short as possible, usually with only one photo on the first page, which you can easily skip printing to save ink.
