This lovely crocheted January scarf pattern has been created by Agrarian Artisan and is available as an online download (VAT inclusive). The stitch pattern is open enough to look lacy but bulky enough to keep you nicely snug. It is easy to memorise (only 2 rows of pattern once you are set up) and using this bulky yarn is very quick to make. It is made in 2 halves, you start from the centre back and work one way then when you have done half the scarf you rejoin the yarn to the centre back and work the other end.
The pattern is written in English and US crochet terms and is charted. The pattern is downloadable in pdf format and can be viewed using Adobe pdf reader. A copy of this software is available at http://get.adobe.com/uk/reader/. Images have been provided by Agrarian Artisan.

As made to the pattern the scarf measures 29cm (11½”) wide by 180cm (71”) long when blocked. The pattern makes up quickly and is easily adapted to any width or any length. To change the width of the scarf just increase or decrease the foundation chain where indicated. To change the length just increase or decrease the number of rows, in multiples of 2. Alternatively it can be adapted to any weight of yarn provided you use a suitable hook size.
