New Pattern! Random Stitch Crescent Scarf (Crochet)

This beautiful crescent scarf, by Mary Rhodes, plays with the use of prime numbers, rows that are not an even number of pattern repeats, and a repeat that continues beyond the end of each row to create the illusion of a random combination of stitches.  It is worked starting at the back of the neck, increasing outward to create a slightly ruffled crescent shape. The overall effect is dressy, elegant, and almost floral, while still being abstract. Despite its fancy appearance, this scarf is very forgiving to make, as the loose gauge hides a multitude of sins, and stitch “errors” simply contribute to the apparently random stitch placement.
