Fuzzy Crocheted Scarf Patterns
This is the pattern for the scarf I posted a picture of the other day. Because of the fuzziness of the yarn, the pattern is very open -- the fuzzies fill in the spaces.
Yarn: 2 balls Patons ChaCha (Salsa)
Hook: Size 10 (J)
Finished scarf is about 5 feet long. I forgot to measure the width, but I'd guess it's about 6 or 7 inches. UPDATE: The width is actually 5 inches. It just looks wider because of the fuzzies.

Ch 25 (final 4 chs count as 1st tr of row 1)

Row 1: turn, tr in 5th ch from hook (21st ch from start), (skip next ch, ch 1, tr in next ch) 9x, tr in next ch. 12 tr and 9 ch 1 sp.

Row 2: turn, ch 5 (counts as first tr + ch 1), (ch 1, tr in next ch 1 sp) 9x, ch 1, tr in next tr. 11 tr and 10 ch 1 sp.

Row 3: turn, ch 4 (counts as first tr), (tr in next ch 1 sp, ch 1) 9x, tr in next ch 1 sp, tr in next tr. 12 tr and 9 ch 1 sp.

Repeat rows 2 and 3 for lenghth of scarf, ending with row 3. Finish off.
I finished another scarf this morning (will try to post a picture tomorrow if I remember and if Mrs. Ivy will be so obliging as to host it) that was a little narrower and longer, but pretty much the same pattern:
Yarn: About 1 balls Bernat Boa (Doo Doo Bird) (I actually made a hat from part of the second ball, but I'm not sure exactly how much of it.)
Hook: Size 10 (K)
Finished scarf is about 5 feet long and about 6 inches wide. (I'll try to remember to measure these things more accurately!) UPDATE: The width is actually 4 inches. It just looks wider because of the fuzzies.

Ch 17 (final 4 chs count as 1st tr of row 1)

Row 1: turn, tr in 5th ch from hook (17th ch from start), (skip next ch, ch 1, tr in next ch) 5x, tr in next ch. 8 tr and 5 ch 1 sp.

Row 2: turn, ch 5 (counts as first tr + ch 1), (ch 1, tr in next ch 1 sp) 5x, ch 1, tr in next tr. 7 tr and 9 ch 1 sp.

Row 3: turn, ch 4 (counts as first tr), (tr in next ch 1 sp, ch 1) 5x, tr in next ch 1 sp, tr in next tr. 8 tr and 5 ch 1 sp.

Repeat rows 2 and 3 for lenghth of scarf, ending with row 3. Finish off.
Please note that wherever possible, you will be crocheting in spaces, not stiches. My first attempt at the first scarf, I tried to work in the stitches and kept missing them because of the fuzziness of the yarn. That's the other reason (besides the stripes) that I tore out and started over. It went much faster after that! Also be sure to start with a very loose chain so it's easier to find and work in the stitches. The Bernat Boa yarn was much easier to work with than the Patons Cha Cha -- easier to find the central thread and not get caught up in the fuzzies.

This is the first time I've ever attempted to actually write out a crochet pattern, so please be merciful re any boo-boos. And no, I'm not going to attempt to write out the hat pattern, but it went kinda like this: ch a chain long enough to go around your head and sl st in 1st ch; Round 1: tr in every other ch; Rounds 2-whatever: sl st in 1st ch 1 sp, ch 4 (counts as first tr), (tr in next ch 1 sp, ch 1) around, skipping a few more ch 1 spaces in each round 'til you've got a hat that fits your head; kinda stitch things together in the center so it doesn't look too doofy; be grateful for fuzzy yarn that keeps it from looking too doofy, 'cuz otherwise it would!
