Special Techniques: The scarf rows are stitched horizontally.
To Begin: With the easyloop® tool threaded with Yarn A (Harvest), create a slip knot (1 inch in size) 6 inches from yarn end.
Foundation Chain: Chain 100 stitches plus 1 turning stitch. Turn work.
Row 1: Slip Stitch into every stitch of foundation chain across row, making 1 turning stitch at the end of row. Turn work, so yarn tool is on left and work is on the right (or vice versa for left-handers).
Rows 2-4: Single Fauxchet® Stitch into every Slip Stitch across each row, making 1 extra turning stitch at the end of each row before turning work. Turn work at the end of each row, so yarn tool is on the left and work is on the right (or vice versa for left-handers).
Row 5: Single Fauxchet® into 25 Slip Stitches across row.
At end of the 25th Stitch of Row 5, Chain 10 Stitches. Insert the tool into the 10th Stitch beyond the 25th Stitch of Row 5, reattaching the 10 loose Chain Stitches to the working fabric. NOTE: Align the 10 chain stitches you just made with the 10 corresponding Single Fauxchet® stitches opposite (on the working fabric). Continue with the Single Fauxchet® Stitch to the end of row. Make 1 extra turning stitch at end of row. Turn work.
Rows 6-11: Single Fauxchet® Stitch into every stitch across row, turning work at the end of each row before turning. NOTE: When you reach the 10 loose chain stitches along Row 5, create the Single Fauxchet® Stitch into the chain stitches.
At the end of Row 11, end work by fastening off with 1 extra chain stitch into the last stitch. Cut yarn leaving a 6 inch tail. Unthread the easyloop® tool by pulling cut yarn end backward out of the tool needles. Pull yarn end to tighten the last stitch.
Finishing: Weave loose yarn ends in to conceal.
Single Fauxchét® Edging: Rethread the easyloop® tool with Yarn A (B). BEGIN EDGING at the same corner your project started, by securing the threaded yarn tool to the corner of the fabric with a Slip Stitch. Tie the two ends together to secure. NOTE: Both sides of Single Fauxchét® look the same with no right or wrong side.
Continue the Single Fauxchét® Edging around all 4 sides of the scarf, creating an extra stitch at the corners to prevent puckering.
When Single Fauxchét® Edging is completed around all 4 sides, end work by fastening off with 1 extra chain stitch into the last stitch. Cut yarn leaving a 6 inch tail. Unthread the easyloop® tool by pulling cut yarn end backward out of the tool needles. Pull yarn end to tighten the last stitch.
Finishing: Weave loose yarn ends in to conceal. ♦
