Crochet Flat Bobble Shell Scarf Pattern
Video for the Flat Bobble Shell can be found at http://youtu.be/bDzQ0Esn93Q
This is a beautiful crochet pattern for a scarf. It will keep you warm in the fall or winter. It's made using a Flat Bobble Shell stitch. Yes flat, not the traditional ones. It has a beautiful texture. I like to do patterns that are easy enough for a beginner and is something different they can try. It's also great for someone who is experienced.
You will be alternating between doing a row of the Flat Bobble Shells and a row of a group of 3 double.crochets. I know it's hard to see but it will make more sense when you start. It creates a lace type effect.
Uses a multiple of 4 + 3 chains.
Swatch: 11 inches high and did 14 rows = 1 1/4 rows per inch
7 inches wide= 3 1/4 sts per inches
Length: 56 inches long by 7 inches wide
Bobble (all in the same stitch): Insert hook in the stitch indicated, Yo pull through. YO Pull through 2 loops. Repeat 2 more times then YO and pull through all 4 loops.
Bobble Shell = (Bobble, chain 3, Bobble) all in same stitch
YO = Yarn Over
TCH = the turning chain ---> How to video link can be found at http://youtu.be/diqWCOVGa3s
Ch3sp = Stands for a chain 3 space
Row 1: Do 1dc in 4th chain from the hook. Do 1dc in each of the next 2 chains, *chain 1, skip 1, 1dc in each of the next 3 chains *repeat to last chain and do 1dc in it
NOTE: As you can see...you have groupings of 3dc's. You are doing a Bobble Shell in the center dc of each of those groupings. The exact instructions are written out. You are ending with 1dc in the TCH.
Row 2: Chain 3 (counts as first here and throughout. Skip 1st dc, Do (Bobble, ch3, Bobble) in next
stitch *Skip 2dc, do Bobble shell in next dc * repeat to last 2dc and do 1dc into TCH
Row 3: Chain 3, Do 3dc into 1st ch3sp. *chain 1, 3dc into next ch3sp * repeat to last 2dc and do 1dc
Repeat rows 2 and 3 for as long as you want your scarf to be.
