Fishnet-Stitch Crochet Scarf

This scarf whipped up amazingly fast. It is *mostly* a never-ending chain stitch with a connection point every 5 chains. Very light-weight and drapes nicely. I used a soft baby yarn in a minty color and after I finished it, I thought of possibly using this kind of a stitch to make a net for the kids' stuffed animals. :)

I made a scarf just like this recently too! (One of the things I haven't posted pictures of yet) It was so simple, and fast to make. The pattern I saw called it a "Fish Scale" scarf. Funny how people have similar ideas.

Isn't it?? I am learning new things every day, I swear! Like patterns written in U.S. versus in Europe are similar names for different stitches and all that.. confusing! :)

Yes! I have found a few European patterns and I have to look some things up sometimes, then afterward I realize I already know what they are describing, it's just called something different or gauged differently. I also noticed Europeans don't use different word forms of the word "crochet" the way Americans do. like "crocheted" or "crocheting" and I've noticed a lot of it spilling into American speak on facebook, and it just sounds weird to me. Oh and people calling crochet hooks needles too! They aren't needles, they are hooks! you knit and sew with needles! haha. Anyways.. :)

is there a pattern?

This scarf I didn't use a pattern for, but it is super easy and if you can picture it, here is basically what you do:

chain however many across as you would like it to be in width (in multiples of 5). Add 5 more chains to the end and that will be your "turning chain". Turn.

Skip 5 chains, sc into next, ch 5, skip 5, sc into next, and so on to the end... ch 5 and turn, skip 5, sc into next.... repeating until you get it as long as you like.

It's been a while since I made it, but that is the basic idea and as you go along, you will see how it works out like a net. You can also vary where you skip and where you sc and how many chains in between to alter the look of the net. I hope this helps and isn't too confusing! :)
