Strawberries and Cream

img_3072-1
I’ve been in love with Tunisian crochet lately. I just love the way it stays loose and yet thick. So I decided to make a scarf using the Gobelin stitch. It’s a bit of a yarn eater, but oh so squishy in the finished form!! I grabbed some left over Caron one pound I had from a previous project and got to work. My daughter named it, she said its all she could thing of while I made it!! So here’s how I made the strawberries and cream scarf:
Supplies:
-worsted weight yarn, I used Caron One Pound
-afghan hook, size J ( out of personal preference, I’m using an extended hook, you don’t need to, you can use a basic straight one )
-yarn needle

Ch 30
Starting in second ch from hk:
1. *Insert hk into ch, yarn over, pull through, leave loop on hk.

Insert hk through next ch, yarn over, pull through, leave loop on hk* repeat across ch. -30 loops on hk

2. Yarn over hk, pull through first loop.
Yarn over hk, pull through next TWO loops.
*yarn over hk, pull through nest TWO LOOPS* repeat across.
You’ll end with one loop on hk.

To finish:
Finish on a repeat of row 4, fasten off the yarn leaving a long tail.
You can sew the two ends together or leave as a straight scarf, your choice!
