How to crochet a striped scarf

This long fringed scarf is made very special with the use of a sleek luxury yarn in wonderful rich colours.

The foundation chain is worked with a size larger hook to avoid puckering. Then each strip is one row of treble and the fringe is attached with the crochet hook.
