loops & threads® indie™ crochet shoulder wrap

Step 1
FINISHED MEASUREMENTS: 15" x 49"
 
GAUGE: 4 sts, or 2 sets of the moss stitch (sc, ch 1) = 4"; save time and check your gauge
 
 
SPECIAL STITCHES:  This scarf is worked using the moss stitch, also called the granite stitch. This is a simple stitch; all you need to do is rep (sc 1, ch 1, sk the next st) across the first row. For the second and all other rows, you will sc 1, working into the ch 1 sp from the previous row, then ch 1, sk 1, repeating this pattern across the row.
 
Begin by making a slip knot. Ch 47, and turn. TIP: When working with the moss stitch, it’s important to chain an odd number. You can adjust the number of chains to shorten or lengthen the shoulder wrap, according to your preference. Just make sure that your final number of chains is odd.

Row 1: Sc into the 3rd ch from your hook. *(Ch 1, sk the next st, sc 1,) and rep from * across the row. Sc into the last st in the row. Ch 2 and turn.

Row 2: Sc in the first ch 1 sp, then ch 1 and sk the next st. As you work across this row, you will continue to sc into the sp left by the ch 1 from the previous row, sk over the next sc and ch 1 instead. Continue this pattern (sc in ch 1 sp of previous row, sk the next st, then ch 1) across the row. Take care that your final stitch in the row is a sc in the ch 2 sp from the beginning of the previous row. Ch 2 and turn.

Rows 3-8: Rep Row 2. 
Step 2
Finishing: When you reach the end of the 8th row, cut your yarn free from the skein, knot it off and weave in the tail. Repeat for the tail at the beginning of the scarf. 
 
Button: If desired, you may add a large button to one end of the wrap in order to close it when worn. Use off-white embroidery floss and a yarn darner to sew a button to one end of the wrap, about 2 rows down and 2 stitches over from the top corner. Stitch through the button and around the strand of yarn beneath it several times to make sure it’s anchored securely, then stitch into the actual yarn and make a knot. Trim away any excess. Close your wrap by wrapping it over your shoulders, then pull the button through a ch 1 space at the opposite end of the wrap, as though it were a buttonhole.
