I made this scarf a long time ago...maybe 3 years back. Anyway, I listed it in my Etsy shop and recently someone asked how to make it.
The great thing about this scarf is the colors. You can wear it with a lot of things. Maybe not everything, but I wear it all the time. Even though there are several colors and several ends...there is No weaving...YAaY! I really love stripey projects but really hate weaving in those irritating ends.
This would go great with the Colorful Stripey Mitts...you could make a matching set. All you need is a few scraps of leftover yarn...another great project for getting rid of those pesky leftover balls rolling around in the bottom of your stash basket or bag.
This is a simple pattern great for beginners. All you need to know is a sc and hdc. I use half doubles in a lot of my projects. I guess it's my favorite stitch.
So here you go:
Worsted weight yarn (I used about 10 different colors)
Size G crochet hook
*No yarn needle needed this time*!!!
4 inches wide
60 inches long (not including fringe)
not as important for this project
You will leave at least 7 inches of tail when starting and finishing each color. These tails or ends will be the fringe. Change colors for each row.
You can substitute dc instead of hdc for a wider scarf.
Row 1: Working in the back ridge, Sc in 2nd ch from hook. Sc in each ch across. (180 sc) Finish off. Turn
Row 2-10: Attach new color with sl st to the last stitch worked from previous row. Ch 2 (counts as first st), hdc in the next st and in each st across. Finish off. Turn
Row 11: Attach new color with sl st to last st worked from previous row. Ch 1, sc in first st and in each st across. Finish off.
Cut two 12 inch strips of each color. Attach one strand of each color to the end of each row. (Match up the colors) You will have 3 ends for each color on each end. Braid each set. Refer to the photo.
Please leave me a comment if you have any questions. Enjoy!

Love it! I like how you braided the ends rather than just leaving them as plain fringe. Cute!ReplyDelete

Wow! I just came across your blog via Pinterest. You would not believe - I found a scarf exactly like this today in my local wool shop. They didn't have a pattern for it, so I was going to have to guess at how to crochet it. I'm so glad I found you, now I know how to make it. Thanks so much.ReplyDelete
You're welcome and I hope you love your scarfDelete

I am a beginner crochet-er and was wondering if there is a video on something like this. I am visual and don't yet understand the abbreviations yet.ReplyDelete
I was wanting to use up my left over yarn. I was going to just wing it, but this is better. think I will make a girl size scarf for my Granddaughters in Montana! Thank you!ReplyDelete

I love this scarf and have made a few of them. A great way to use up leftovers :) I'm launching my own blog shortly and I hope you don't mind but i have linked my photos of my finished scarves back to this blog post :) So that everyone can find this great pattern :)
I have made two of these for donations. I'm planning on using this pattern for my crochet class in the fall because it will use up all those smaller amounts of yarn left over from last year and It will be a perfect beginning project.ReplyDelete
I love this scarf! Now I know what to do with all those left over balls of yarn. Thank you so much. I'm starting the scarf today. I'm so excited!ReplyDelete
Am thinking about making this as an infinity scarf (minus the fringe, of course!)ReplyDelete
My girls (all grown up and with families of their own( all prefer cowls/infinity scarves to the straight ones.
I don't see any reason this wouldn't work as an infinity scarf, do you?
Want to thank you for all you share with all of us! You and a host of other bloggers have been so generous in sharing it inspires those of us who are working so hard to improve our own skills with the hooks! Even during those times I somehow find it hard to pick up those hooks (lose my Cro-Jo!) I find that reading blogs such as yours get me excited all over again about picking up those hooks and digging into my large stash (don't tell hubby) and getting to it!
