Materials: I-9 Crochet Hook, 150 to 220 yards worsted weight yarn (like Malabrigo or Manos Maxima)
This scarf is worked lengthwise, so although you have to get through a long foundation chain, there are only 5 or 7 rows.
Chain 203, the last 3 chain stitches count as the turning chain
R1: dc across all chain stitches, 200 dc
R2: chain 4 (counts as turning chain and chain 1), *1 dc, chain 1, skip one dc from previous row, 1 dc in next stitch. Repeat from * across all stitches.
R3-? You can make as many mesh rows as you like here, I made one scarf with 5, another with only 3: begin as R2 to last square, make the final dc in 2nd chain stitch over, leaving 3 chain stitches to act as last dc from previous row.
Last Row: chain 3, dc across all stitches, including the single chain stitches between dc.
Tie off, make fringe.
Here's how I make fringe:
First cut lengths of yarn double the desired finished length of fringe, also allow a bit of trim room. For example, if you want 6" fringe, cut yarn about 12 1/2" long.
Grab a few strands and a hook and pull the middle point of your yarn through work. Feed tails through resulting loop. Repeat and space fringe evenly, then trim.
