How to Make a My Team Forever Scarf
Use this self-striping yarn to show your support for your favorite team! This scarf is great for guy and gals, and makes a super gift for the sports lover.
Scarf is worked with 1 yarn. Color changes should occur at the end of row after 6 rows have been worked. With first color, ch 33. Ch 1, sc in 2nd ch from hook, *skip next ch, ch1, sc in next ch; repeat from * across to last ch, sc in last ch - 17 sc and 15 ch-1 spaces. Fasten off first color. Cut yarn to remove current section of first color.
Leaving 4" (10 cm) tail, join second color with slip st in first sc, ch 1, sc in first sc, *skip next sc, ch 1, sc in next ch-1 space; repeat from * across to last st, sc in last st.
Ch 1, turn, sc in first sc, *skip next sc, ch 1, sc in next ch-1 space; repeat from * across to last st, sc in last st. Repeat Row 3 for 35 stripes each 6 rows wide, ending with a stripe of the second color.
Repeat Row 3 with first color. Do not fasten off.
Edging row 1
Rotate scarf to work across long edge, ch 1, sc in each row edge across, ch 1, slip st in first ch of foundation ch. Fasten off. Repeat Row 1 for second long edge.
Finish with fringe
Use both colors to make fringe. Cut 80 strands of first color and 90 strands of second color, each 10" (25.5 cm) long. Beginning with second color, attach fringe as follows in first corner st: hold 5 strands together and fold in half. With wrong side facing, insert hook through first corner st on short edge of scarf and draw folded ended of strands through to form loop. Thread ends of strands through loop and pull ends to tighten. Continue attaching fringe in each ch-1 space and in opposite corner st across alternating 2 sections of second color and 2 sections of first color, ending with second color. Trim strands to even all fringe.
