Velvet Flake Keyhole Scarf
Materials: 50g Wendy ‘Velvet Flake’ yarn
Crochet Hook: 6.00mm [J – 10]
Basic Stitches: ch-chain, lp-loop, st-stitch, sc-single crochet, dc-double crochet, yo-yarn over. (American Stitch Guide used.)
Ch. 1 at beginning of row counts as 1 sc.
Ch. 2 at beginning of row counts as 1 dc.
Shell group: Work 3 dc into one stitch of row below.
Reverse Shell group: Work 1 dc into each of next 3 stitches until 1 loop of each dc remains on hook, yo and pull through all 4 loops on hook.
Due to the nature of the yarn, it is not easy to see individual stitches; you will have to rely on fingertips to find the next stitch, especially when working the single crochet Keyhole section, and corresponding section. Also use a row counter or paper and pencil to keep track of where you are.
