Difficulty: Easy

One day I decided to see if I could come up with a way to make a slope with an even edge. Most of the slopes I’ve seen have a bit of a jog in them, but I wanted one as smooth as I could get it. After playing around for a bit, I came up with a cross between Tunisian and regular crochet. Even if you’ve never done Tunisian, you can do this. I have provided step by step, well, actually loop by loop instructions. I used a regular crochet hook to do this scarf. It looks great in light weight yarns and super bulky. Just make sure to adjust your hook accordingly.

The Ziggety Scarf is a simple three row repeat that can be worked to any length. It is a great little accessory to add a touch of color to a summer tank, belted in jeans, or wrapped around your head to keep it out of your face. It looks great in solid, semi-solid, and self striping yarn. It is also a great stash buster since it only uses a small amount of yarn to make a long scarf!
