Plaited scarf

I finished this over the weekend:

This is the Rapunzel scarf from a pattern out of Inside Crochet no. 16. I substituted a 4.5mm hook and King Cole Riot yarn. I used about 1.25 skeins in two colourways.

Nice easy pattern to make, but I'm not sure the finished scarf will stand up to washing! The plaits seem quite delicate, even though I have tacked them together at most of the three-way join points.

It is rather pretty though. Dd has admired it, so perhaps she will snaffle it, come the Autumn.

  1. Your scarf is beautiful - I like Riot although I find it a little thinner than standard DK but it's a darn sight cheaper than Noro and looks just as nice!
