A while ago we got a fabulous new yarn from Alchemy Yarns called “Silken Straw” — its grasslike, ribbony texture challenged me to create something beautiful and unusual. The fact that it is 100% silk, shiny and fabulous and exotic, made the call hard to resist. I decided to try a crochet item … a simple scarf in trellis stitch. It came out beautiful and one skein makes a LONG scarf — I stopped at about 5 feet, with plenty of yarn left over. Its easy to crochet!
Trellis Stitch Scarf
1 skein Alchemy Yarns “Silken Straw”
Crochet hook size G
Row 1 (set-up row): 1 sc into 6th ch from hook; *5 ch, skip 3 ch, 1 sc into next ch; rep from * to end, turn.
Row 2: *5 ch, 1 sc into next 5-ch arch; rep from * to end, turn.
Repeat Row 2 endlessly.
When you reach the length you want, or run out of yarn, cut yarn and pull through the last loop. Weave in ends.
I pressed my scarf with a steam iron to make it flat and silky, but you may like the nubbly texture that the scarf has as you work on it. This gorgeous scarf is more like jewelry than a scarf. It’s beautiful!
