Crochet Kerchief Pattern

Cluster Shell Kerchief Pattern – Sport Weight
©2005 Earthwhisper

Hook 7 or 4.5mm

**Edited orignal pattern to use sportweight yarn. (this pattern goes to Row 15)

Yarn: Lion Brand Baby Soft – I am sure any sport or light yarn would do fine.
(This pattern fits a 4 year olds head. To make this bigger, say for an adult, you would just keep creating more rows and you would want to make the ties longer by increasing the chain from 36 to a number that seems like an appropriate tying size.)

Row 1: Ch 4. 4dc in first chain. This will make your first shell cluster. Turn. (1 shell)

Row 2: Ch 3, 4 dc, sk 3 stitches. 5 dc in top of ch 3. Turn. (2 shells)

Row 3: Ch 3, 4 dc, sk 4 stitches. 5dc, sk 3 stitches. 5 dc in top of ch 3. Turn. (3 shells)

shells)
**Continue in this same pattern until 15 rows.

Ch 36. sl st back down chain and sl to to of shell cluster. Sc in next st and around top of kerchief (75) ch 36. sl st back down chain and sl to base of chain. Fasten off.

The sportweight or lightweight does make a nice kerchief. I made the worsted weight one originally to match the same yarn as the skirted tank. Play around!!
