Revolve - a scarf to crochet

Revolve is a long scarf that is worked in spiral rounds of crochet. It's a very easy scarf that whips up in no time. Working in the back loop gives a nice line look to the front of the scarf and a different texture to the other side. It is long enough to be wrapped around your neck twice of placed over your head as a hood. This is the type of pattern that you can use up every bit of yarn in your skein.
This long version of the scarf was made with about 350 yards of Caron Cakes in the Funfetti colorway. Any worsted weight or Aran weight yarn with a size I (5.5 mm) crochet hook. My finished scarf measures 70" around x 9" wide. You can get a narrower scarf out of 175-200 yards of yarn.

My testers liked this pattern so much that most of them made both sizes and were talking about making more for gifts.
Or make a small cowl type scarf with about 100-150 yards. I used 100 yards of Red Heart Gumdrop for this 26" around x 6" high cowl.

This scarf is easy to adapt to any weight of yarn by changing the hook size to suit your yarn and changing the number of stitches that you start with for a longer or shorter scarf/cowl.

The 3 page patterns features written instructions and a crochet chart. Instructions are given for joining to work in a spiral round (and not joined rounds). Pattern price is $4.00 in my Ravelry store.
