Hound Dog Scarf: Gift

This is the one, from my original post, on which tahlenri commented…

The Name

Hound Dog by Elvis Presley

As I investigate crochet hound’s tooth stitching, I definitely had to give nod to the dog.

The Scarf

Dimensions: 5-inch Width x 66-inch Length

This is the scarf, from my original post, on which tahlenri commented, “I think your crocheted modified granite stitch was pretty convincing in yellow and violet.”

I’d have to agree with tahlenri, though I still might explore a little more. I have also crocheted some swatches with even different stitch pattern effects, but I digress.

Hound Dog is not a reversible pattern, as you’ll notice via quick jaunt through the small gallery for which Mergatroid gladly modeled.

I may have to switch to brown and rust, or brown and white, or white and brown, or white and rust… 😀

Back to the scarf: the stitch pattern is a proprietary secret still, but I can tell you that it is based on a staggered griddle stitch. I like it because it is bigger, more staggered than the traditional griddle stitch suggestion, though the more testing I do, the simple suggestions work also, it’s just I can’t see it from that orientation. I used a US I/9 hook, and a foundation chain of 16+1 for a scarf width of approximately 5 inches; I crocheted until the scarf measured 66 inches in length.
