Free Crochet Pattern: Ruffled Boa

RUFFLED BOA

May 17, 2015

By: Christina M. Lee

SANY0004

Skill Level: Easy

Gage: Not important

Materials:
1 skein, Sensations, Rainbow Bouncle Patterns (Self-Patterning Bouncle) Pink/Grey Rainbow
(Note: I used 1 large 11 oz skein, if using a different type of yarn in a smaller skein, please adjust yarn accordingly.  I  had plenty of left over yarn from this skein, enough I made a pair of fingerless gloves and a stocking type hat to match my boa, and still had some left.  A regular worsted weight yarn makes the Boa too heavy (believe me, I tried it). If you change yarns, use something soft, light and fuzzy such as a baby weight yarn.)
Crochet Hook Size I/9 (5.5 mm)

Pattern:
Chain 161
(Note: Pattern is worked in round continuously on right side, do not turn.)
Round 1:  sc second ch from hook, sc in each ch across to the last ch, 3 sc in last ch. Do not turn your work. Continue to sc around on the bottom side of the chain in the open (unworked) loop all the way across the back side of the row of chain stitches back to the beginning. 3 sc in last loop, sl st to first ch creating one continuous oval, ch 2. (159 sc on each side of chain, with 3 sc in each end stitch.) 324 stitches.
Round 2:  2 dc in same stitch, (the first ch 2 acts as one dc), *3 dc in next sc*, repeat ** across this side, 6 dc in end st, *3 dc in next sc*, repeat ** across this side, 6 dc in end st, sl st in top of first ch 2 of row. Ch 2.
Round 3:  2 dc in same st, (the first ch 2 acts as one dc), *3 dc in next sc*, repeat ** around, back to beginning, sl st to beginning ch 2. Fasten off.
