Rebecca is wearing a grey, mesh, crochet, kerchief created from the Tibbs pattern.

Tibbs crochet kerchief just might be the project you’ve been looking for. This kerchief is truly a quick project. Using a dc mesh stitch for the body means this little wonder flies in your fingers. 
1 ball. Yep, thats it. This is a great project for using those single balls in your stash.

It’s a great little addition to your spring and fall wardrobe to chase the chill.


the skills you need

It’s easy. If you’re a beginner, I encourage you to give this a go!
The amazing adjustable ring│magic loop {see VideoPicture tutorial} is key to a very clean start of this kerchief. Then stacked trebles and stacked doubles {see Video tutorial} are the secret of straight edges, eliminating the need for a finishing border. With the body of the Tibbs in a mesh fabric, this makes for a low yardage, super quick project.
