The Martine Dubois Crescent Scarf - New Pattern Release

My latest pattern is a crescent scarf  which is worked bottom up. The edging is unusual but easy to work. The balance of the scarf is garter stitch, making it a simple project to execute. I used a larger needle than the yarn would normally call for, to showcase the edging. The pattern uses a crochet cast on to create an edge that matches the cast off, however any cast on technique may be substituted.

The sample shown used approximately 400 yds (365 m), 100 grams (3.53 ounces) of 100% superwash merino, single ply, fingering weight, hand painted in colour Raspberry Mocha from Yvieknits Yarns. I had some yarn left at the end. The project could be worked with any fingering weight yarn. You may remember I recently interviewed Yvonne of Yvieknits here.

This shape is very versatile. It can be worn in a number of different ways. 

The scarf measures 9 inches (23 cm) long from bottom at centre point to top edge and it is 61 inches (155 cm) wide, measured following curved top edge after blocking.

The name Martine Dubois comes from Agatha Christie's novel, 4:50 from Paddington.

It's here on Ravelry and will be up on Patternfish soon.
