Coriolis Effect Scarf to crochet

I recently bought a single skein of Manos de Uruguay Silk Blend in the wildflower colorway at a local yarn shop. This stuff is gorgeous! Decided to turn it into a luscious little scarf that hugs your neck. 

My Coriolis Effect Scarf* is fast to hook. The scarf wraps around your neck and buttons to keep out the chills. Here is a picture showing how it looks on and the second picture laid out flat. My husband and some friends chose the name for this design.

This scarf is worked sideways with every other row worked in the back loop for a little texture. Little loops are added along the bottom edge as you work. Finish it with buttonholes and buttons or sew the ends together for a cowl.

You’ll need 150 yards of a DK or light worsted weight yarn, a size H (5 mm) crochet hook, and 3 buttons 3/4” or to fit your buttonholes. It’s easy to make longer or wider.

The two page pattern has only written instructions and sells for $3.00. You can find the pattern in my Ravelry pattern store.

*The Coriolis Effect was named after the French mathematician, Gustav Coriolis. It explains in part why winds and ocean currents don't move in a straight line. This effect causes the winds to bend to the right in the northern hemisphere and to the left in the southern hemisphere.
