Special Technique: Stitching with a double strand of yarn (when stitching with multiple strands, hold them together as one).
To Begin: With the easyloop® tool threaded with a single strand of yarn A and yarn B, create a slip knot (1 inch in size) 6 inches from yarn end.
Foundation Chain: Holding Yarn A and Yarn B together as one, Chain 10 stitches plus 1 turning stitch. Turn work.
Row 1: Slip Stitch across row, making 1 turning stitch at the end of row. Turn work, so yarn tool is on the left and work is on the right.
Rows 2-50: Ridged Single Fauxchet® Stitch across each row, making 1 turning stitch at the end of each row before turning work. (For Ridged Single Fauxchet® Stitch insert tool through BACK LOOP ONLY of each stitch.)
Row 51: Double Slip Stitch loosely across row (for Double Slip Stitch insert tool through FRONT and BACK LOOPS of each stitch).
At the end of row 51, end work by fastening off with 1 extra chain stitch into the last stitch. Cut yarn leaving a 6 inch tail and pull yarn end to tighten.
Weave loose yarn ends in using the easyloop® yarn tool and the “weaving ends in” technique.
Fringe: Cut eight 10” strands of Ladder Ribbon Yarn B (do this 18 times-9 for each end of the scarf). Fold the eight strands of yarn in half (creating a total of 16 strands of yarn for each section of fringe to be attached). Attach the 9 sections of fringe along the bottom of each short end of the scarf (using a traditional fringe attaching technique). When attaching the fringe, position one section of fringe for each stitch along the ends of scarf.
The fauxchét® ladder fringed scarf is made with the easyloop® fauxchét® yarn tool. The basic stitches and techniques can be learned in The Art of Fauxchét® E-Book. A link to download the E-BOOK, our how-to videos, and a written instruction booklet to get you started (with easy scarf patterns) are included with the easyloop® fauxchét® yarn tool.
