On the way to Vegas for Tara's wedding, I worked on my scarf from the Magic Yarn Ball Swap in the car! My partner sent this GORGEOUS avacado green merino wool yarn and I thought it'd be perfect to use in trying my hand at writing my own openwork crochet patern, something I've been meaning to do for some time now! The scarf is sort of a checkerboard between blocks of dc and buttefly stitch blocks. Here's an attempt at a pattern!
Butterfly Stitch Muffler:
Special Stitches: Butterfly Stitch (BS), sc around 3 chs
2-dc in 3rd ch from hook, *(5 dc, ch 5) repeat until last ch, 1 dc in last ch, ch 2, turn
3-1 dc in dc, *(ch 5, 5 dc) repeat until last dc, 1 dc in last dc, ch 2, turn
4-1 dc in dc, *(5 dc, ch 5) repeat until last dc, 1 dc in last ch, ch 2, turn
5-1 dc in dc, *(ch 2, 1 BS, ch 2, 5dc) repeat until last dc, 1 dc in last dc, ch 1, turn
6-1 sc in dc, *(ch 5, 5 sc in dc) until last dc, sc in dc, ch 2, turn
Repeat from #2-6 until desired length.
Finishing: sc in contrasting color around scarf making 2 sc in every 2ch or dc space. Repeat with one row of straight sc around.
This is the most complicated pattern I've written to date, so if anything is confusing or if anyone has any feedback, please let me know! Criticisims are welcome :)
