Pattern instructions

NOTE: This pattern is written in British English. All measurements in charts are in cm. For conversion from cm to inches - click here. There are different terms for crocheting in British and American English. If this pattern includes crochet, click for "crochet terms" here. For this pattern in American English, please click here.
Draw a “comb” on card and cut it out – see fig. 1 for measurements. Mark the middle with a dotted line.
Wind up approx 20 metres of Vienna yarn into a small ball.
Make a loop with the Vienna and hold it against the “comb” on the dotted line with the loop pointing down and the yarn thread lying over the edge and behind the “comb” – see fig. 2.
Keep the Vienna loop in place with your left thumb and at the same time hold a thread of Vienna + a thread of Eskimo + a thread of Puddel . Now make an “8 loop” around the “comb” as shown in fig.3. Pick up the Vienna loop and hand crochet a ch around the “8 loop” where the Eskimo + Vienna + Puddel threads cross each other in the middle of the “comb”, as follows: Put your thumb and your index finger through the loop pulling the Vienna thread from behind the “comb” through the loop (this makes a new loop). Pull tight. The loop is now pointing up and a ch has been crocheted around the cross point – see fig. 4.
Make another 8 loop as before and now hand crochet again over the cross section. NB: It is important that the Vienna loop and the Vienna thread from the small ball is always kept in position as described above (loop in the front and thread at the back) for the hand crochet. When the “comb” is full, lift off the loops and put the work in front of the “comb”, but put the last “8 loop” you made back onto the comb and continue as before. Make the Boa approx 150 cm or to your desired length. NB: The loops can be quite loose and you can pull them out easily, so we recommend securing your work by sewing backstitches – see fig. 5, with Vienna into the row of ch’s to tighten up the loops. It is important to sew through all the threads if possible.

Pompon: Make 2 pompons with a diameter of approx 10 cm in Eskimo (please see the Garnstudio Knitting Technique pages on the pattern front page). Fold the boa double and sew a pompon on each side.

J'en ai fait deux, sans les pompons, une blanche et une avec du violet : j'adore, facile

I made one. It is a wonderful scarf. All my friends have started making this scarf, mixing diferent kinds of yarns and colors.

Ser flot ud, men vil være endnu flottere hvis det er uden ponponerne.

Maria 27.07.2006 - 17:38:
