  1. I love asymetrical scarves and this one is beautiful!!! Thank you ever so much for the pattern!

    1. Enjoy! πŸ™‚

    1. Thanks!

  2. You read my mind! I have been obsessed with the asymmetrical shawls lately, and this one is gorgeous. Thank you so much <3

  3. Lovely design but I’m having problems. I’ve tried several times but once I get to repeating row 4 & 5, my shawl does not grow in width. I’m not sure, I may be overthinking it. Help if possible πŸ˜€

    1. Hey Denise,
      Row 4 is adding a Herr dc and a ch 1 at the beginning of the row so it should start growing.
      It is possible you are not noticing it and just need to keep going. It’s very subtle at first πŸ™‚

      1. Thanks! I’m trying. So far, I only ever have 2 herr dc to crochet in. It seems I got it to grow by crocheting in the t-ch every row but since I knew that was wrong, I’ve frogged it. Trying to do this while waiting for jury duty. I may have to let it ‘rest’ and come back. Thanks for helping!

        1. By row 2 you should have 3 herr dc, then row 4 has 5, row 6 has 6…and so on. Ever even numbered row adds a (herr dc, ch 1).

  4. Oh, I’m trying so hard. I’ve frogged this many times. I too am fine on Row 1, Row 2 and Row 3 having 4 herr DC. Then on Row 4, I cannot get 5 herr dc. Help please.

    1. Hi Nancy,
      Sorry, you’re probably doing it right! I believe I ha my numbers wrong in my reply to Denise.
      I’ll add the numbers in the post but row 1 has 3 herr dc, row 2 has 3, row 3 has 4, row 4 has 4, row 5 has 6…and so on. The increasing happens on the odd numbered rows. Hope that helps πŸ™‚

  5. Hi, I used this pattern for only 1 skein of a rainbow dyed yarn that I wanted to use to show off the colours. Unfortunately I couldn’t make the Herringbone DC work and just did it in (UK) trebles. I’m really happy with my (small) asymmetrical scarf. Thank you.

    1. Hey, that’s works! I bet it beautiful πŸ™‚

    2. I did mine in (US) doubles and it worked very well. Also added row of (US) singles across the neck edge for a nice looking finish. Very easy pattern once you get into it and a great one to take on a trip. :o)

  6. I want to try this but reading the pattern, I was wondering what a “t-ch” is?

    1. That means turning chain πŸ™‚

      1. OMG…duh! ☺️Lol. Thanks

  7. So pretty! I’m snagging this pattern! Thank you….hugs

  8. Hi, I’d like to do this project ombrΓ© style … a few rows lighter … then a little darker, etc. could you give me some idea how many rows you did for the one pictured, just a a guideline? Then I’ll know how many rows to do of each shade. Thanks!

    1. Hi Phyllis!
      That sounds really pretty! I don’t have a row count because I just worked until I ran out of yarn but I do have a little solution for you.
      If it were me I’d work a few inches in the first color. Measure how many rows you get in 4″ (or whatever length you work). This will give you a row gauge. You can then figure out about how many rows you’ll need to get the entire length you want with a little math.
      Let me know if you need more help with the math! πŸ™‚
