USING A VERSION OF THIS PATTERN TO MAKE A NETTLE YARN SCARF FOR 2017
An experiment piece for the yarn so there will be an update to this pattern

Nettle yarn
4mm hook, bigger than recommended
US Terms 

This mess pattern repeat is multiples of 4sts +2
For the Netle scarf I'm doing 46 for the mesh and another 4sts for the flower stem.
NETTLE PATTERN
Make a small flower
finger wrap of 10 wraps, 
ROUND 1: 14sc into circle
ROUND 2: ch2, dc into fist st, dc, ch2, sl st into same st, sl st, into next st, repeat for the next 6 petals, sl st, to complete


Ch50,
 thats 46sts for the mess and a few extra ch sts for the stem of the flower using this method you don't need to be completely accurate with your base chain as the 'stem' sts can varies by a couple of stitches.
ROW 1: ch2,  hdc, in 2nd st, from hook, hdc, in next 44sts, turn,[46hdc]
ROW 2: Ch3, counts as first tr, tr in next st, ch 2, miss 2sts, repeat to end, finish with 1tr in last 2 sts, turn. [11 mesh spa, 12 mesh bars]


ROW 3: ch1, hdc in first 2sts, above the tr, 2hdc into ch2 sp, repeat to end, turn. [46hdc]


ROW 4: Repeat row 2, make sure your stitches line up about each other, tr, above tr. 

ROW 5: repeat row 3





continue to repeat rows 2 and 3 until the length required.

NETTLE NOTES: 
Not a cheap yarn but not a really expensive one either, this brand was £6.45 for 50g.
It's 180m so it should go quite a long way especially using the very open mesh stitch scarf pattern [update to come]
Nettle yarn, crochets well, feel quite soft and has a slightly waxy sort of feel to it too, [will update after a wash] with this mesh pattern it feels delicate and very feminine in the treble mess st. and for me a huge change of direction as i'm a usually an Aran weight lover not some one who works with delicate yarns. 
Fear of such a lovely yarn and cost are probably two reasons for the delicate pattern choice. lol 
Updates to come.


Mesh stitch Scarves are great for layering with flowers.
