I used worsted weight out of my stash, and I’m not even sure it was a full ball. I crocheted until I ran out of yarn, but thankfully it ended up being the perfect size for the look I wanted. Blocking is essential, as it will truly bring this piece into it’s full potential. It will also increase the size of your piece, so don’t worry if it seems too small.
Crocheted Mesh Scarf
16 1/2″ x 41″ (post-blocking and off the blocking board)
Paton’s Classic Merino (3½ oz / 223 yds) 100% Merino Wool, 1 ball, (I used Dark Grey Mix)
Crochet Hook size H/8 – 5mm
The stitch used is the the Double Triple Crochet (dtc):
Yarn over hook 3 times, insert hook under top of the stitch, yarn over hook and draw it through that chain stitch only (5 loops now on hook), * yarn over hook and pull through 2 loops on hook; repeat from * 3 times more.
Chain 67 (multiple of 5 + 12 for foundational row)
Row 1: Skip 10 sts and double triple crochet into the next stitch.
*Chain 3, skip 3 sts, double triple crochet into next stitch. Repeat from * to end of row. Turn.
Row 2: Chain 7, dtc into top of following dtc. *Chain 3, skip 3 sts, dtc into the top of the next dtc. Repeat from * to last dtc on the previous row. At end of row, chain 2, skip 3 sts, and dtc into the 4th stitch. Turn
Repeat Row 2 until desired length. Mine was a total of 34 rows.
Weave in ends, and block. Tada!
