  6. Very festive and very elegant. I'm going to crochet it for my mother in law. I'm unable to move around very much, due to fractured leg, so I'm just crochetting lots of scarves for this Christmas.

  8. I loved this scarf as soon as I saw it, so I got started on crocheting it immediately. I finished it last night, and was concerned because the scarf curled up on itself. Also, my stitch seemed a bit smaller than what appears in your photo. I used a G hook with Vanna's Glamour Yarn in Topaz. It came out beautiful other than the curling. Not sure if my stitch is too tight or what the problem may be. Any help would be appreciated. I purchased more yarn to make scarves for my daughter/daughter-in-laws, but will wait to see if you have an easy solution for my problem. Thank you so much in advance. Also, thank you for the patterns on your site. They are beautiful and can't wait to get to work on them.

    1. Thanks for your kind comment! As for the curling, when beginning your scarf be sure to make your chains loosely, a tight beginning chain could cause it to draw up on one side. Also, blocking helps with some yarns (some yarns all of the blocking in the world won't help though :)

      Because you've already finished your piece, you could add a few single crochet rows along the bottom of each end. Because the scarf is crocheted lengthwise, crocheting additional rows in the opposite direction might help. Additionally, you could add some kind of fabric or fleece backing to the scarf.

      I hope some of these ideas help! Mine did curl a bit too...you can kind of see it in the first picture, I kind of liked it that way.

      Happy Crocheting to you!

    2. You could try starting with a foundation single crochet and that way the first row will definitely not be any tighter than the following rows.

  11. Jennifer,

    What size hook did you use? My stitch is really small. Thanks!

    1. I used a G hook...a few people found that when they made their beginning chain loosely too, it helped a lot to open things up a bit. Hope that helps you!

  12. Will Caron simply soft yarn also work.?? It's medium weight yarn and 5mm. Thanks

    1. Hi Sydni! I love Caron Simply Soft...it makes lovely scarves. To be sure it will work for this pattern, try making a little swatch before you start to see if it looks how you want it. This scarf can be any length or width, so your yarn choice can be pretty flexible. Check out the yarn label for the recommended hook size, that should help too! :)

  13. I have made 6 of these scarfs for my sisters for Christmas. I added a silver thread with 4 of them and used a gold thread for the others they are all different colours (cannot of course give them the same colours) They are so wonderful that I am making some of my friends these for Christmas also. I shortened it for my 5 year old granddaughter as she loves pink and sparkles it came out absolutely beautiful. I always make my beginning chains loose and did not have any problem with curling but have another suggestion to add some silver beads (sew them on) or even silver pearls. It looks beautiful and just an elegant touch for one sister that can only have the best.

  14. Hi Jennifer,
    I'm not sure what you mean by "work 1 dc in the first space, and in each space to the end of row." What space are you referring to?

    thanks,

    1. Hi Jennifer,
      I'm new to your site and I have the same problem that was asked in a previous comment, but I can't find your reply. I'm not sure what you mean by "work 1 dc in the first space and in each space to the end of the row." What space are you referring to? Thanks.

      Delete
    2. Hi there! Thank you both for a great question! The space I am referring to is the space in between each stitch. So instead working a dc into the stitch, you would work it into the spaces created from the previous row.

      I did a tutorial a while back, it has some helpful photos too:

      Hope that helps!!

  15. I viewed your tutorial on chain spaces and I understand it, but with a granny square there is an actual chain space created by a ch 1 in the previous row. Your foundation row or the other rows have no chain 1 spaces in the pattern. Do you just fit your sc and dc in between the stitches in the previous row or should we be actually doing a stitch, ch 1 and a stitch?

    1. Hi! I started this scarf last night and the same question came up for me. I finished the foundation row of sc, and then tried the dc's fit in between the actual sc stitches in the previous row.....and it works. You will begin to see the spacing between the dc's that you see in Jennifer's picture. My spaces between the dc's don't look as big as hers do, but I tend to crochet kind of tightly. I'm trying to loosen up the tension a bit, and then I'm going to try and get it to relax a little more when I block it. Hope this is helpful!
