I feel as though I finished this man scarf just in time, as the weather has taken that perceptible turn in recent days. This is a belated birthday present for my dear ol' Dad - which he celebrated two weeks ago (aherm - sorry Dad)
I used two 50 gram balls of 8 ply and a 4mm hook. Simple and satisfying.
The whole piece is hooked using half double crochet stitch (US terminology here). My foundation row was 2 meters long. I'm not going to count out how many that was - as everyone's tension is different. I suggest making a chain until its about 2 meters, then with the same colour do a row of half double crochet, change colour each row until you have used up both balls - in my case it was 8 rows.
Rather than reinventing the wheel with pictures on how to proceed - if you want a demo on half double crochet this tutorial out. If you are completely new to crochet here is how to do a chain. Or if you want some one on one crochet know-how you're welcome to seek me out at The Make Cafe - I think my next class is Sunday 26th June.
Phew! This week I actually have something finished to link in with Leonie here:
