This design begins with a crochet provisional cast on. The body of the scarf is worked in a slip stitch pattern, where the yarn is carried at the right side of the work. This creates a woven effect on the right side, which is mirrored by a raised textured pattern on the wrong side of the fabric. Slipping two stitches at the beginning of each row creates a rolled finish down each long edge of the scarf.

Although it may look difficult, the embroidery is a combination of 3 basic techniques: detached chain stitch, twisted chain stitch and French knots. If, at this point, you feel the French knots are beyond your abilities they can easily be replaced with beads instead. In order to avoid puckering the fabric of the scarf, we recommend that you lay the scarf on a flat surface when you are adding the embroidery. And because it can be difficult to keep the back of the embroidery as tidy as the front, the cast-on edge is folded upwards and grafted in place, creating a deep hem through which the other end of the scarf can be inserted when the scarf is being worn.
