DIY: Vintage-style scarflette with ribbon

Things are getting back to normal after leaving Berlin... So today I proudly present a new crochet pattern! I found the idea for this neckwarmer in an old crochet magazine and decided to create my own. The satin ribbon gives it a pretty vintage look and the yarn with mohair makes it soft and cozy... perfect for cooler days! 
Plus: It's quite easy and you can use up your leftover yarn ;)

So here we go!

You need:
Light worsted yarn recommended for crochet hook H/8 to I/9
I used “Elfin” by Schoeller+Stahl, 90% Polyacryl, 10% Mohair, 140m/50g
1 ball in main colour A and 1 ball in contrasting colour B
Crochet hook size 5 mm (US 8)
About 1,5 m (~ 1.65 yd or 60 in) of satin ribbon, 3 cm (~1.2 in) wide

Gauge: 10x10 cm = 8 rows à 20 dc

Size of finished piece about 15 x 65 cm (5.9 x 26.5 in)

The scarflette:

ch 29

Row 1:
dc in 4th ch from hook and every ch across (26 stitches), ch3 (does not count as stitch), turn

Row 2:
dc in first 10 stitches, ch 6, skip 6 stitches, dc in last 10 stitches, ch 3 (does not count as stitch), turn

Row 3:
dc in first 10 stitches, 6 dc in ch-6-space, dc in last 10 stitches, ch3 (does not count as stitch), turn

Row 4:
dc in each st across (26 stitches), ch 3, turn

Repeat Row 2-4 until piece measures about 65 cm (~ 25.6 in); finish with a "row 3" and make sure you have an even number of holes. Fasten off and weave in ends.

Start a new thread with colour B on one corner of piece, RS facing.
Work slip stitches down the shorter side of piece, ch 3, make a sl st in the “foot” of the first dc on the longer side, *ch 3, sl st in “foot” of next dc* 2 times.
Now you work across the scarflette along the row in between the first two holes:
Your working thread must lie UNDER the scarf. Insert hook into scarf at first stitch of row, yarn over, pull through stitch and loop on hook (sl st made), continue across the rest of row.
Now work *ch 3, sl st in “foot” of dc* 3 times along longer side of scarflette, then work slip stitches across scarf as described until you reach end of piece, work slip stitches down the short side, fasten off.

Weave ribbon of your choice through the holes, it must be long enough so you can tie a bow. I used black satin ribbon.

If you need any help or find a mistake please tell me! I used US crochet terms.
