This unique scarf is more than just your run of the mill scarf, it is also a multi-wear diva. Sport it as a belt, headband and asymmetrical scarf. Not only is it awesome, the yarn you’re using for this project is spun by underprivileged women in India and Nepal. So, you’re making and difference and looking oh so awesome!

Stitches: Ch (chain), Sc (Single Crochet)

Ch 20. Join with sl st to form a big loop.

Ch 1. 40 Sc around the big loop. Join with sl st.

Ch 1. 1 Sc in each Sc around (40 Sc). Join with sl st.

Cut, bind off, and weave in ends.

Sew together the three circles using a tapestry needle.  Attach 6 stitches along the edge of each circle.

Chain Scarf

Attach yarn on the outside edge of the third circle in line with the line made by the circles.  Ch 90.  Cut Yarn and tie a not in the end.

Attach yarn 8 more times on edge of the third circle in line with the line made by the circles and Ch 90. Cut Yarn and tie a not in the end.  This makes 9 strings of chain total. Weave in all extra ends and have fun in the chain scarf!

    Gosh what a unique idea. I am always looking for different and unusual things to knit and crochet as I am a member of the New Zealand Natinal Spinning and Weaving Group. I am not nearly as skilled as a lot of our members who have been there for years and years so I need ideas of garments/accessories to make for our show and tell table… Thanks…

    I see you have felted balls at the bottom of this page.
    You probably know this already but we make felted balls by putting some unspun wool with a touch of soapy warm water into the bottom of a round pill pot and shake it around for a while. Different sized pots produce different sizes of balls. Then just put them in the sun to dry. You can thread them together to make a lovely necklace or bracelet…
