Crochet Scarf: Bodhgaya

Details:

  • Made for: Mom’s friend’s wife
  • Yarn: Cashmillon Numbers: 47, 60, 41, 44
  • Hook: Tulip Gold 5/0

Start Date:

  • August 28th, 2015

Measurements:

  • 210 x 25 cm

Patterns:

  • Bilingual, written, and chart available for free, under Attribution 4.0 International
  • Pattern in Bahasa Indonesia is available here.
  • Pattern was designed with using Fsc as beginning chain counts. Regular chain counts have yet to be tested. Feel free to test them, though. 🙂

Initial Chains:

  • multiple of 19 + 15; if you want to have 3 chevron repeats (like this scarf), you start with (19 chains x 2 chevron repeat) + 15 additional chains. Other examples:
    • 4 chevron repeats: (19×3)+15
    • 5 chevron repeats: (19×4)+15
    • and so on… 🙂

WRITTEN PATTERN

Row 1: Fsc 53.

Row 2: Chain 2, *7 dc in the next 7 sts, 3dc in the next st, 7 dc in the next 7 sts, 3dctog*, rep 2 times, ending with 1 dc in the last st.

Row 3: Chain 2, 2dctog (starting in the same st as beg chain 2), *7 dc in the next 7 sts, 3dc in the next st, 7 dc in the next 7 sts, 3dctog*, rep 2 times, ending with 2dctog in the last 2 sts.

Row 4-xx: Rep Row 2 and 3 accordingly to the necessary length of scarf you want. I will be alternating colours every 3 rows or so to get the colour work happens. Learn to change colours here. My suggestion is to crochet in your tail ends every time you change colours, so you wouldn’t have to darn it later.

Row xx: Fasten off. Sew in tail ends with blunt needle. And you’re done.

Enjoy your scarf! 🙂

REMEMBER:

  • to keep having the 2dctog on each end of each row to keep the side straight, otherwise your work will enlarged as you work. 2dctog on each end helps you to maintain the straightness of your end product.
  • also, to keep your counting correct in one row: 2dctog – (7 dc – 3dc – 7 dc – 3dctog – 7 dc) – 2dctog. Pattern repeat is presented in the bracket. I had lost my counts as well, that is why I am reminding anyone who is trying this pattern. LOL.
  • Have fun!
