Yes, it's another scarf...I probably shouldn't be showing this yet as the recipient may be reading. But it's come out so well I couldn't resist. The circles remind me of ripples in water so I'm calling it the Ripple Scarf.
The yarn is Debbie Bliss baby cashmerino DK as always, it really is so lovely and soft. I made three sizes of circles in single colours and combinations. The whole is edged with one row of double crochet.
I've put the pattern for the circle at the bottom, I made 18 large, 12 medium and 12 small, but how many you need would all depend on the finished shape and design. The circles are very easy to do, only basic crochet skill is required, and they are relatively quick as well. The sewing-up took several hours though...
Circle: All instructions are in standard UK terminology
With DK and 4.5mm hook make a chain of 6 stitches, join ends with a slip stitch to form base loop.
Chain 3 (this forms equivalent of first treble), do 15 more trebles into the loop, 16 in all, join last to top of first chain 3 with a slip stitch. Fasten off here for small circles.
2nd round:Change colour if desired. Chain 3 and do a treble in the same space, then do 2 trebles in each following chain space to the end, join last with slip stitch. Fasten off here for medium circles.
3rd round:Change colour if desired. Chain 3 and do treble in same space, in next space do 1 treble, then 2 in next space...continue to alternate 1/2/1/2 all around. Fasten off.
Leave nice long tails as these can be used for the sewing up part.
I did one row of Double crochet all around the sewn up circles to neaten it.
