Skylark is not your typical scarf. It is made at an angle, a little off kilter, and a little wider than most scarves, making it a cross between a scarf and a wrap. There is a diagonal stripe of contrasting color every several rows. Skylark is sure to get attention wherever you go!
Free Crochet Pattern

Designed by Jessie Rayot
80” x 11”
RED HEART® Unforgettable: 1 1/2 skeins main color (A) 1 skein contrasting color (B).
US 8/H/5.00 mm
18 sts x 20 rows = 4” in single crochet
There is no turning chain on the even numbered rows. Just make the first sc in the first st as indicated in the pattern.
Skylark will need to be blocked. I used blocking wires, but if you have enough pins you can pin it down to block it.
There are 2 different scarves seen in the photos in this pattern, one using Dragonfly as color A and Petunia as color B, the other using Stained Glass as color A and Bistro as color B
I had one wonderful tester for this pattern: Dawni Criswell
