This is a badge bit (BB) that is part of the PEP curriculum.  Completing this BB is part of getting the straw badge in textiles.

In this project, you will knit or crochet a scarf. This scarf can be

a simple garter stitch (a more indepth tutorial is HERE, but you'd need to lower the needle size from 13 to 12)



A simple broken rib stitch pattern that alternates one row of k1 P2, and one row of K2 P2


A simple pattern that is the same each row, but looks lovely
K1,YO,SSK for every row
(In other words: knit 1, yarn over, slip 2 stitches to the other needle then slide left needle in front of loops and knit those two stitches together)


simple crochet pattern


Or it can be something far more complex! It's up to you!

Badge bit requirements:
 - Measure 1.5 yards/meters in length
 - if knitted, knitted with no larger than size 12 needles
 - if crochet, crocheted with no larger than a size K hook
 - must be at least 4 inches wide
 - must be made from natural yarns, such as wool, cotton, hemp, silk, linen

To document your completion of the BB, provide proof of the following as pics or video (less than two minutes):
 - knit or crochet a scarf at least 1.5 yards long (not including tassels) and 4 inches wide and not be done with giant needles.
 - your scarf in progress (somewhere around 1/3rd to 1/2 finished)
 - your completed scarf on a person

Approved BB submission
Here is my submission for the Textiles - Straw - Stickwork - Crochet a Scarf BB.

The scarf is crochet using a 'G' needle and 100% merino wool.  I learned the 3D double crochet stitch from Fiber Spider and his 3D Crochet Tutorial. My chain-less foundation double crochet row was 5" unstretched and I discovered that I preferred how the scarf looks stretched wide not long so I blocked the finished scarf at 9" x 60" on lace wires.  The dry (blocked) scarf measured ~7" x 62" and is show on a 6'x1' blocking board.

To document the completion of the BB, I have provided the following:
- knit or crochet a scarf at least 1.5 yards long (not including tassels) and 4 inches wide and not be done with giant needles.
- your scarf in progress (somewhere around 1/3rd to 1/2 finished)
- your completed scarf on a person
