Watercolor Hexagons Scarf

Pattern Created by Sandi Marshall

This scarf is made of join-as-you-go hexagon shaped motifs. The photo example shows a scarf made of eight motifs. Add as many additional motifs as desired, for a longer scarf.

Printing: Many newer printers will print fine from this page or you can use the Printer-Friendly Page. If only the ad at the top of the page prints, try this: before choosing the Print command, click on the pattern portion of the page (tells your printer what part of the page you want to print), then choose Print. Use Print Preview (click on File, then Print Preview at the top of your Internet browser) if you want to see ahead of time what will print.

Materials Used In The Example - For 8 motifs: About 5 oz. worsted weight yarn for main color (MC), about 1 oz. of worsted weight yarn in the contasting color (CC) used for the outside joining rounds, US size H hook. I used Red Heart Multicolor yarn - color Watercolor for the main color and Red Heart Supersaver color Medium Purple for the outside rounds.
Finished Size: Each motif is about 5 1/2 inches in diameter (including the joining round) and the scarf is about 44 inches long when made with 8 joined motifs, as shown in the example. Each additional motif will add about 5 1/2 inches to the length.
Gauge: 1 dc = 1/2 inch tall, 7 dc = 2 inches
Gauge is not overly important for this pattern. The scarf doesn't have to be an exact finished width or length.
Abbreviations: ch = chain, chs = chains, dc = double crochet, ea = each, hdc = half double crochet, sc = single crochet, sl st = slip stitch, sp = space, sts = stitches, tr = treble

How To Slip Stitch (sl st) = Insert hook in stitch, wrap yarn over hook, pull yarn through the stitch and through the loop on the hook, at the same time.

See terms of use below the pattern directions. Please keep the copyright statement with the pattern directions when you print out or save the pattern.
Motifs: Print the pattern directions for the 6-sided hexagon motifs from http://crochet.about.com/library/n6side2rnd.htm. The motifs in this scarf are made of three rounds. The join-as-you-go outside round directions are below.
First Motif: Following the 6-sided granny motif directions that you printed out, crochet rounds 1-3. End off. Weave in ends. Then, add an outside round, using the following directions:
First Motif, Outside Rnd: Attach contrasting color yarn in any chain space of round 3. ch 1, sc in same chain space where yarn was atttached. (ch 4, sc in next ch sp) 17 times, then ch 4, sl st in first sc of this rnd.
Second Motif: Crochet rounds 1-3 from the the 6-sided granny motif directions. End off. Weave in ends. Then, add an outside round, which will be joined to the previous motif as you go along, using the following directions:
Second Motif, Outside Round: Refer to the photo for help in understanding where the joining stitches are made. Attach contrasting color yarn in the chain space in the center of any v-stitch of round 3. ch 1, sc in same chain space where yarn was atttached. ch 3, sl st in a ch-4 loop that is above any v-stitch on the previous motif. (ch 3, sc in next ch sp on motif just made. ch 3, sl st in next ch-4 loop on previous motif) 3 times, then ch 3, sc in next ch sp on motif just made. (ch 4, sc in next ch sp) 13 times on motif just made, then ch 4, sl st in first sc of this rnd.
Additional Motifs: Repeat Second Motif and Second Motif Outside Round directions for each additional motif that you wish to add to the scarf.

Final Round: To add a finished look, you can add a round that is worked all the way around the outside edge of the joined motifs. In each chain-4 loop on the outside edge, work (sl st, ch 1, sc, sl st). This makes a narrow scallop in each chain loop.
