Triangle Scarf or Kerchief
Original Design by Sandi Marshall

These triangle scarves work up quickly in Aunt Lydia's "Denim" Quick Crochet. I used the color olive but some of the other colors available in this thick thread are Chambray Blue, Oxford Gray, Red, White and Linen (a beige). An online source for the Aunt Lydia's Quick Crochet Thread is Herrschners. If you have a Walmart Store near you, you will probably find it there also (a Walmart near me has it).

Here's a closer look at a portion of the design. The chart is worked in a 3 dc mesh. Each mesh consists of 3 double crochet. The last dc of each mesh is also counted as the first dc of the next mesh.
Materials: 150 yds. Aunt Lydia's "Denim" Quick Crochet (Blend of 75% Cotton, 25% Acrylic), Color used in example is Olive. US size 3 steel hook
Finished Size: 16 3/4 inches wide at Row 1 (not counting ties) and 9 1/2 inches long from center to point.
Gauge: 5 dc = 1 inch, 4 rows = 1 1/2 inches

Directions
Abbreviations: ch = chain, dc = double crochet, sl st = slip stitch
How to Decrease at the Beginning and End of Each Row: After row 1, at the beginning of each new row, you will slip stitch in first 2 dc, then chain 3 (counts as the first dc of that row). At end of each row, leave the last two double crochet unworked.
First Solid Mesh of a Row: Chain 3, dc in next chain-1 space or dc, dc in next dc.
Each Additional Open Mesh: Chain 1, skip next chain-1 space or dc of previous row, dc in next dc.
Each Additional Solid Mesh: Dc in next chain-1 space or dc of previous row, dc in next dc.
Starting Chain: Chain 94.
Following Chart: Begin at bottom right-hand side of chart, working first row right to left. For next row, follow chart from left to right. Continue alternating directions in this manner at each new row.
Getting Started: To help you get started, I've written out the directions for the first two rows. Continue to follow the chart from there. Once the basics of filet crochet are learned, written directions are not needed for each new chart. For a refresher on filet crochet basics, see: http://crochet.about.com/library/weekly/aa050298.htm
Row 1: Dc in 5th ch from hook, dc in each ch across. (91 dc)
Row 2 on Chart: Slip stitch in first 2 dc. Chain 3 (counts as first dc of this row). Dc in next 2 dc, * ch 1, skip next dc, dc in next 5 dc, (ch 1, skip next dc, dc in next dc) 3 times, dc in next 4 dc, ** repeat * to ** 4 more times, ch 1, skip next dc, dc in next 3 dc. Leave last 2 dc unworked. Turn.
Rows 3 - 23: Follow chart.
End off.

Finishing: Attach thread in first dc of row 1. (Chain 2, slip stitch in first dc of next row) repeat. At row 23, you will have worked a slip stitch in the first dc of that row, slip stitch in next 2 dc. Now working down other side of scarf: (Chain 2, slip stitch in edge dc of next row) repeat. When you have reached row 1 and have worked a slip stitch in the edge dc of row 1, sl st in side of same dc, chain 80 for tie, slip stitch in each chain of tie. Slip stitch in end of row 1. Slip stitch in each stitch across the front edge of scarf (this gives edge a nice finished look). When you have reached opposite end, chain 80 for tie, slip stitch in each chain of tie. Sl st up to first chain-2. Work 3 single crochet in each chain-2 space along edge of scarf. 3 single crochet in center slip stitch of row 23 at point of scarf. Work 3 single crochet in each chain-2 space along edge of scarf. Slip stitch in end of row 1. End off. Weave in ends.
