Tuck No Tails Stripy Scarf
This pattern can be worked using ANY count and ANY gauge! For custom sizing, make your foundation row as long as you wish and then follow the pattern as written. To adjust the width, simply add or subtract rows as desired, just be sure to make your first and last rows the same color. This pattern also makes a beautiful blanket. Just follow the above instructions for custom sizing.
300 yards of worsted weight yarn (color A)
300 yards of worsted weight yarn (color B)
foundation=foundation half double crochet
Standing hdc=standing half double crochet
hdc=half double crochet
Pattern Note 1: Standing hdc can be replaced by chaining 1 and placing 1 hdc in turning stitch if desired.
Pattern Note 2: Don’t forget to turn your work at the end of each row despite fastening off. The turning contributes to the texture of the scarf.

Step 1: Cut fringe to desired length (the sample is about 16 inches). Fold 2 strands in half as shown BELOW.
Step 2: With either side of the scarf facing you (doesn’t matter just don’t forget to be consistent on both ends), insert your hook behind the leftmost stitch (rightmost for lefties).
Step 3: Use your hook to draw the loop of your 2 folded strands behind this stitch, but DO NOT pull all the way through.
Step 4: Gather the tails of your folded 2 strand AND the tail from that row and feed them together through the loop you have created.
Step 5: Gently pull the strand through being careful not to pull too hard on tail from the end of your row.
Step 6: Allow the loop formed by your folded strands to close around that leftmost (rightmost for lefties) stitch, incorporating the tail from the row into this bundle.

Step 7: Fold the scarf in half so that the edges of the scarf line up on top of each other fringe top to fringe top. The fringe will more than likely be uneven so make sure to match the edges of the actual scarf and not the ends of the fringe.
Step 8: Decide your desired fringe length and place your ruler so that it is to the left for your desired cutting edge. I usually find the shortest strand and place my ruler to the left of it. Lefties: You will place your ruler to the right of your desired cut line.
Step 9: Press down on your ruler firmly and trim along the edge of the ruler to help you maintain a straight line.
Finished fringe! (BELOW)
