Truffle Scarf

This scarf would have turned out better with thinner yarn


Hook Size:  5.0mm or US H/8

Ch 200
Row 1: Ch3 (counts as first dc here and throughout) turn, dc in in 4th ch from hook, 2dc in each remaining st across (400dcs)
Row 2: Ch3 turn, dc in turning space, 1dc in next st, *2dc in next stitch, 1dc in next stitch rep from * until end (600dcs)
Row 3: Ch3 turn, dc in turning space, 1dc in next 2 stitches, *2dc in next stitch, 1dc in next 2 stitches rep from * until end (800dcs)
Row 4: Repeat Row 3 (1065dcs)
Weave in Ends
*Note: depending on your hooking tension, you may need more than one skein of yarn – you can even end this ruffle scarf when your yarn supply ends and it would still look good!

I used a half finished back of a sweater, which I would never finish, and cut it in the shape of a coat for our dog. I sewed a zigzag stitch and then knit a 3 stitch edge.
