Productive Time On Jury Duty

Last summer while on jury duty, I started this scarf. Recently finished, soaked, shaped and dried, it is being listed in the shop today.

For you handcrafters out there, this is stitch sometimes called crocheted seed stitch or crocheted moss stitch. To make the scarf symmetrical, I started at the center, working lengthwise, and crocheted out to the sides with a DK weight yarn and a size G crochet hook.

The fun thing about this stitch is that in this gauge is really has the feel, hand, and drape of weaving.

It's shown below on a woman's dress model, but it is a unisex style, and it is of a size that works well for men to be able to tuck inside a winter coat.
