Badiane Scarf to Crochet

Badiane is a cute scarf to work up in a sock/fingering weight yarn (or even a lace weight). It would look killer made in a mohair yarn. The motif looks like a star anise. My friend Jamie suggested I use the French word for star anise, which is badiane, as the name of this design. The lace motif is very open but don't worry, if you wrap this scarf twice around your neck it will definitely keep you warm.

The standard turning chains normally used in crochet have been elongated to form a loop edging along the sides of the scarf.

I made my sample with Knit Picks Gloss Fingering weight yarn that was dyed by Jamie in a seaglass colorway. Fitting that she also named the scarf. LOL!

You need about 300 yards of fingering weight yarn and a size G (4 mm) crochet hook for this project. My scarf measured 64.5" long x 5" wide and blocked to 86" long x 5/75" wide. How much it grows depends on if you used a blockable fiber and how severely you block.

Make the scarf as long or short as you like. Seam the ends together if you would rather have a cowl type scarf.

The 3 page pattern has written instructions and a crochet chart. The pattern is available as a pdf download through my Ravelry pattern store for $3.00. I'm donating all proceeds from this pattern to the Mercy Corp.
