Twister is a fun scarf to crochet and wear! It can be worn hanging, or by folding it lengthwise and draping the ends through the loop created.
Yarns used: Malabrigo Worsted Merino~1 skein (216 yards)
Invictus Yarns Captain~ 2 skeins (218 yds each)
Hook Size: Crochet Hook size I
Notions: Tapestry needle for weaving ends
Gauge: I got 4 st/inch DC and the finished scarf is 65 inches long on the scarf shown.
SC= Single Crochet
DC= Double Crochet
Chain 151 stitches loosely, or as needed to get preferred length. (keeping in mind that more yarn may be needed for a longer scarf)
Row 1: SC in second ch from hook. SC in each ch across. Turn. (150 stitches)
Row 2: Ch3 (counts as DC). 2 DC in first SC. 3 DC in each stitch across. Turn. (450 stitches)
Row 3: Ch3 (counts as DC). DC in first DC. 2 DC in each stitch across. (900 stitches)
Fasten off and weave in ends. You may need to rotate spirals to line up from each end. They will twist easily, or you can let them do their own thing for a more ruffled look.
Row 3: 2 hdc in each stitch across
Row 4: 2 hdc in each stitch across
Fasten off and weave in ends.
