Spiderweb Squares Scarf »
InstructionsIf you use a yarn that unravels easily, do chain loops for fringe: Join yarn with slip stitch on either end of the scarf edge. Work two rows of single crochet on each end, then do (single crochet, 40-ish chains, slip stitch) in each single crochet of the second row of sc, skipping the first and last single crochets in the row. Fasten off. Repeat for the other end of the scarf.

Blue scarf: Berocco Vintage, Off-white and Salmon scarves: cotton/rayon blend from Czech Republic
What was your inspiration?
I wanted to make a scarf for my sister using a beautiful blue skein of Berocco Vintage yarn I picked up recently. But since I just had one skein, I needed a pattern that didn't require very much yarn.
What are you most proud of?
Coming up with the idea for chain loop fringe when it was obvious that the cotton/rayon yarn I used for the second and third scarves was going to fray horribly.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Be adventurous and use yarns other than the pattern calls out, if you think the weight and feel of the yarn will work for the pattern. The worst that can happen is you won't like it and you'll have to "frog" (rip it, rip it). The best that can happen is that you'll produce an item that's even better than the one pictured in the pattern, and you'll learn something about different yarns.
