I'm gonna be honest:
You are either going to love this project or hate it.
There is a pattern for it...
And there's not. :]
I'm going to give you some general guidelines, and then you have to run with it. Be creative... do what you have to do to get the results that you want. And hopefully you'll have some fun along the way...
Yarn [I recommend Simply Soft]
Crochet Needle [size J]
1. Start with a circle:
2. Chain 5 [or 4... or 6... remember, this is not exact!]:
3. And connect to circle with a slipstitch... I won't tell you where... find a spot that looks good:
4. Chain two, and then double crochet around the half circle:
5. Repeat steps 2-4... vary them slightly each time to get a randomized look to your ruffles:
If you keep going around consistently like that, you will end up making a big circle... we want a long skinny scarf. Every so often you need to stitch another row of double crochet on top of a cicle to come back the opposite direction:
ANOTHER BIG HINT:
The more double crochet stitches you squeeze into your half circles, the more ruffly the scarf will become. And ruffly is good, right? :]
I made my scarf about 5 feet long.
You can wear it long and dainty-like:
Or wrap it around your neck once for a thicker, rufflier look:
