Greystone Scarf & Hat

Design by Leshia Tweddle

The natural curl of Tunisian crochet lends itself perfectly to the fun, frilly style of this ruffled scarf. A more subtly designed hat perfectly complements the showier scarf.

Skill Level
Intermediate

Finished Sizes
Scarf: 7 x 40 inches
Hat: One size fits most

Gauge
Hat: Hat is made to be loose fitting. Gauge on brim of Hat is not critical, but when finished should measure about 11 inches long and 2 inches wide.
Size I Tunisian crochet hook and medium yarn: 16 sts = 4 inches; 13 rows = 4 inches
Size I crochet hook and medium yarn: 14 sc = 4 inches; 16 sc rows = 4 inches
Scarf: Gauge is not important for this project.

Pattern Notes
If you wish to make a longer scarf you will need to increase the number of stitches in multiples of 9 stitches for every 1 1/2 inches. You will also need an additional skein of medium-weight yarn.
Tunisian crochet has a tendency to curl, so when working stitches in foundation chain on Hat, insert hook under back bar of chain; this helps to minimize curling. On the Scarf, the curling factor is intentionally used as part of design; therefore, it is not necessary to work stitches in back bars of chains.
Hat is constructed with 6 triangular pieces, with each consecutive 1 joined to previous triangle and last 1 joined to first triangle.
Ruffled part of Scarf is constructed using spaces that are naturally formed by Tunisian simple stitch when made with large hook. These spaces are referred to as "mesh spaces" (see Photo 1) in instructions and are used to create pleats across, resulting in the ruffle.
