Woof and welcome, Olive the dog here, continuing our lessons on the Eyelet Scarf
Let’s start the scarf for real! Put aside your square, or unravel it.
As you will read on the pattern, the foundation ch is 18, Row 1 is dc and Row 2 is sc. This is basically the same as what we have already done but a bit wider.
Follow the instructions on the pattern and let’s meet up again when you’re ready for Row 3.
OK for Row 3, we do our turning ch (3 ch), 1 dc into the 2nd dc and then we do 2 chain stitches. To make the eyelet we skip the next two sc and we dc into the sc after that. This is how it should look.
As you can see, the two ch stitches line up over the two skipped sc so that we have a hole but we still have the same number of stitches. Now see if you can complete the row and make it look like this, remember to count those stitches at the end of the row.
All good? Woof!
Now the next row is a sc row, but there is a trick to make it easier. Instead of trying to sc into the ch stitches themselves you can sc into the spaces they have made, as referred to in the pattern.
Looking good?! Woof! Next we’re going to do it all again, repeat those 4 rows again.
Now don’t be alarmed that my square has turned pink. I had to start it again… I made a big mistake… I’ll explain in 7. Troubleshooting. Along with all the other things that have gone wrong.
Follow the pattern till you get to Row 17 and we’ll check in there at the beginning of the next lesson. You’re doing woof …. I mean, wonderful!
Until next time…. Woof!
