Half Diamonds Scarf







Materials:
-Bernat pop; 5 oz/ 140 g, 280 yds/ 256 m approx.
lipstick on your collar 84002,  2 balls.

-Size U.S. J.10 (6 mm) crochet hook.

-Tapestry needle

-8 wood beads: their colors matching the Bernat pop or any other colors you intend to use.

-2 ready made tassels: 3.5" / 9 cm. (you can make them from your own yarn.

Note: as a matter of fact, I used one Bernat Pop yarn but added what was left of the Rose Pop Scarf that I've made before.



Yardage:
350-360 yds/ 320-330 m approx.

level: easy

Scarf Measurements:
60" / 150 cm length (without the Tassels and beads).
17" / 43 cm width in the middle.

Crochet Terms
ch: chain
dc: double crochet
2dctog: 2 double crochet together




Note 1: If you have a limited amount of yarn (like I had), mark the middle  point of it, so that you can make a scarf out of your yarn whatever yardage you have.

Note 2: I prefer to make ch 2 at the beginning of each row as the first dc, i see it tighter and make the work look less saggy and without  holes along the scarf edges, so ch 2 or ch 3, it's up to you. In the instructions below, I've used ch 3.

Note 3: the ch 3 at the beginning of each row always counts as one dc.
