Skill Level- Advanced Beginner
Hook- 5 mm H hook
Other- Yarn Needle, Scissors
Yarn- Happy Sheep “WoolPower” from Hobbii.com (Other yarns: Any size 4 weight yarn. I would suggest a yarn that has wool in it. Can be a blend, but the wool gives off the beautiful texture in this scarf.)
THIS PATTERN WILL BE WORKED FROM THE BOTTOM POINT UPWARD. SO YOU WILL BE INCREASING WITH EACH ROW

CH 4 WILL COUNT AS A DC, CH 1
YOU WILL BE TURNING YOUR WORK AT THE START OF EACH ROW

REPEATS OF 4 & 5 UNTIL YOU REACHES 34 INCHES WIDE FROM POINT TO POINT. (OR UNTIL DESIRED WIDTH.)
YOU WILL BE TYING THIS AROUND YOUR NECK LIKE A BANDANA! TO MAKE SURE IT’S THE RIGHT FIT FOR YOU WRAP THE SCARF AROUND YOUR NECK AND TEST IT OUT. YOU CAN KEEP REPEATING ROWS 4 AND 5 UNTIL IT IS AS BIG AS YOU WANT IT.
- Find a book, dvd case, anything that you will be able to wrap your yarn around. Keep in mind the width of that item will be how long your fringe will be.
- Wrap your yarn around once, holding the end down with your thumb.
- Continue wrapping it around for a total of 200 wraps.
- Turn to the side and cut the strings in half.
You will now have 200 strings to use as your fringe. See the next page for attaching the fringe.
- Grab two pieces of string, and your crochet hook. Line up the two pieces of string, then fold in half.
- Pick a stitch along the bottom of your scarf, insert your hook. Loop the folded strings around your hook, and pull them through the stitch.
- You will now have a little loop. Wrap the 4 strings around your hook, and pull them through the bottom loop.
- Pull tightly to secure your knot.
- Keep repeating these steps skipping one stitch in-between.
