Flower Granny Stripe Scarves: Pattern

A colourful and easy project!    Perfect for novices but fun for any skill level!


GRANNY STRIPE SCARVES MADE WITH A COMBINATION OF ELLE RUSTICA AND ELLE CLASSIC WOOL

(A print-friendly version of this pattern can be found HERE)

The pattern is designed to be worked in a 100% acrylic "economy" DK (8ply / light worsted weight) yarn, but it works up lovely in courtelle, 100% wool, acrylic/wool blends, and cottons.

Odd Rows 5 - 119 (Repeat Row 3)

On 119 Rows the Granny Stripe Panel measures 130cm.     The scarf is easily made shorter by crocheting fewer rows.

Make two traditional granny squares as follows:

Row 2:  Join yarn in any 2ch space;   3ch (counts as 1dc), 2dc, 2ch, 3dc into same space as join;   (3dc, 2ch, 3dc into next 2ch space) x 3;    sl st into top of 3ch at start of row to close;   Break off yarn

Use whatever method you are comfortable with to join your square to your main work-piece.   (I used the join-as-you go method to join my squares, by making a slip st every third stitch from my granny square into my main work-piece (make sure that the right side of both squares face in the same direction when you join)
