This is the kind of little scarf that every crocheter should have in hand when thinking about gift-making.
It is also great for charity. It works up really fast. I made it in two sittings.
So, this one will work if you want to make a whole bunch of scarflettes.
Note 1- If you would like it to be a bit more loose around your neck, simply add 11 or 16 more stitches to the
foundation chain and follow the pattern as written originally. That will make the scarflet a bit loser. You can also make it the same length but
reduce the size of the keyhole by 5 stitches, which will increase the give as the scarf is tied around the neck.
The idea of this one was to immitate a hankerchief around the neck, so it was not designed to be like a long
scarf that you can wind up several times around the neck. A young girl will love one of this one!
Make it in her favorite color or in blue jean hues!
Note 2- Ch 1 turning chain stands for 1 sc throughout.
