Eva's Ribs Scarf: Slip Stitch Crochet 101
This is pure slip stitch crochet, done in the back loop. With a larger-than usual crochet hook, it crochets up faster than you’d think. It’s such an easy pattern that it’s almost not a pattern at all. It is Step One in creating my Eva Shrug, and when I was making the shrug, I was very tempted to stop right here and leave it as a scarf! If you decide to turn your scarf into the Eva Shrug, you’ll have Step One already finished.
Eva’s Ribs resemble knitted stockinette or 1X1 knitted rib to many people. It does for me too, sort of. This is a luxuriantly stretchy and plush ribbing, more so than any other crocheted or knitted ribbing I’ve experienced.
