Click to view a youtube video of the Crochet Flamenco Yarn Scarf Pattern.
1 Ball of Flamenco Yarn (Makes approx. 2-3 five foot scarves)
Crochet hook (Size not really important. Larger is easier. I used a K)
1. Stretch the yarn. You will notice that one side of the yarn is thinner that the other. You will work with the thinner side which is at the top in the photo below.
2. Starting with the end of the yarn on the side of the hand you crochet with. (Right handers with have the end the yarn on the right side with the ball of yarn on the left.) You will notice that the yarn is made like a honeycomb shape. Make sure you work with the very top row of the yarn. It may seem like you are skipping a space but the space inbetween is the 2nd row. You will only work with the very top row. You can tell that it is the very top because there will be just one thread, not 2 sewn together.
Insert the crochet hook from front to back in the first 5 very top holes.
Pull the top thread from the 5th hole through the rest of the 4 holes.
3. Insert the hook into the next hole and pull through the one loop on the hook. (UPDATE: After making another one of these, I decided to cut out this step to make a fuller scarf.)
4. Insert the hook in the next 4 holes and pull the thread from the 4th hole through the 3 holes and the loop on the hook so that you only have one loop remaining on the hook. Make sure you are starting with the very first hole closest to the hook.
5. Repeat steps 3 and 4 until you reach a desired length. I like to make the scarves about 5 - 6 feet. The yarn tends to turn in the same direction as you go. You will have to spin it around every so often so it doesn't get too twisted. If you would like a fuller scarf, you can cut out step 4 or insert your hook into more than 4 holes in step 3.
6. To finish, cut the yarn through the middle of the honeycomb shapes as shown.
7. Tie the bottom and top threads in a knot. Then tie one or two knots over it to secure. Trim the ends. You can go back to the starting end of your scarf and do the same.
Please let me know if you have any questions or comments about the pattern so that I can clarify it for everyone.
