Color Me Happy Kerchief

Color Me Happy Kerchief

Designed by Jessie Rayot

Free-Crochet-Color-Me-Happy-Kerchief

The Color Me Happy Kerchief is a great way to keep your hair back in a stylish and happy way. It also makes a great neck scarf, or make it much larger and create a stylish shawl. It is named Color Me Happy because the way the Baker’s Cotton yarn works up in the linen stitch, it reminds me of the drawings my daughters make for me.

Finishing

There are 2 options for finishing

1) Make the kerchief large enough to tie around your head. After finishing the last row, ch 1 and rotate the kerchief so you can start working along the long edge, sc in the side of each st across. Turn, ch 1, 2 sc in first sc, sc in each st across, sc once more in the last st. Finish off.

2) If you want the kerchief to be smaller, and have a tie string attached, then first complete the kerchief to the size you want. Finish it off. Then chain enough for one side of the tie string, sc in the side of each st along the long edge of the kerchief, and chain the same amount on the other side. [Turn, sc in each ch and sc across] 2 times. Finish off.

Here is a chart as well.

      It would! And the Baker’s Cotton is so soft and washes nicely, so it really would work well. Thanks for the great idea!
