To continue and finish off the scarf we are going to stop the central increase and just work each side separately to bring the sides into each corner and make a straight final edge which also has shells across like the other end.
ABBREVIATIONS ( US TERMS )
sl st slip stitch
sc single crochet
dc double crochet
Crochet hook 3:50 mm
6 shell arcs x 14 rows = 4 inches (10.5 cm)
Ch3, sc section = 8 x ch3, sc = 4 inches (10.5 cm) x 4rows = 1.5 inches (4cm)
Width 16inches (41 cm) x length 100 inches (254 cm)
Start with a shell stitch row.
Row 1 : Ch3, sc 1 into 2nd space, ch 3, dc 9, sc 1: repeat *ch 3, sc 1* x 11 times , dc 9, sc 1 into next space, ch 3, sl st into top space, ch 3 , sc 1 into next space, dc 9 and continue down the other side as you completed the previous side
Row 2 : ch 3: sc 1 into 2nd space, *ch 3, miss 2dc, sc 5 into next 5dc from previous row, miss 2dc* , *ch 3, sc 1 into next space * 11 times, repeat first * to *, ch 3, sc 1 into final sc 1 from previous row, turn
Row 3 : ch 3, sc 1 into third sc over shells from previous row, continue to ch 3, sc 1 till you reach the final shell sc 1 into 3rd sc, ch 3, sc 1 into next space, ch 1, dc 1, turn
Ch 3, sc 1 into 2nd space the first time, then next space x 14 times in total so you end parallel to the top (see below)
Row 5 : start with dc 9 to make a shell parallel to the previous row at the top, then continue as Row 1
Continue to go back and forth in this manner repeating the four rows and keeping the line of shells parallel across both the side and the top. The rows will get shorter and shorter until you reach the corner edge when you reach the corner, work a sc row across the top to the centre then repeat the rows above for the left hand side including the final sc row neaten the final edge. Fasten off and weave in any ends, block if required, then try on your scarf!
Thanks for your patience in reading these three blog posts till the end. Here’s me standing up straight like a soldier, think I need to relax in photos more! I would probably make it a bit shorter next time as it is very long. Mine could also do with a bit more blocking. I hope you like your scarf or shawl and any feedback is most welcome.
