“Life isn’t perfect, but your outfit can be.”
If you are looking for a crochet scarf with amazing texture, then you’ve come to the right place.
I just love how this crochet scarf feels and lays and looks. It is such a great layering piece! One of my testers said that it is the first test she has kept for herself in a long time!
I am definitely a scarf girl. I love the look of layering a scarf over a top. Even in the warmer months, I enjoy having a lightweight scarf to compliment an outfit. A crochet scarf adds so much dimension to complete a look!
This crochet scarf is great for layering. It is super lightweight due to the ribbed stitching, and the color combinations are endless! The one pictured uses Deborah Norville Premier yarn in Cream, and Yarn Bee Sweet Divinity in Ocean Breeze. It is so soft and smooth, and the drape is fabulous! So, who’s ready to make this…
…fabulous statement piece?
Skill Level – Advanced Beginner
- Worsted (4) weight yarn in two colors (one skein each) — Some brands and colors that I have used are listed below.
- Color A: Lion Brand Heartland in Grand Canyon, Lion Brand ZZ Twist in Ecru
- Color B: Deborah Norville Premier Everyday in Cream, Yarn Bee Sweet Divinity in Ocean Breeze
- US K10.5/6.50mm crochet hook
- Tapestry needle
- CH – Chain
- SC – Single crochet
- BLO – Back loop only
- Sl St – Slip stitch
- Gauge: 2 ½” = 11 sc / 10 rows (worked in BLO)
- Scarf is worked as a flat piece from corner to corner. It is seamed together with approximately one inch of overlap when finished.
- This pattern does not include detailed instructions on how to complete the above stitches. If you are unsure of how to complete any of these stitches, there are many video tutorials on YouTube that may be of assistance to you.
- The entire scarf is worked in BLO.
- Beginning chains DO NOT count as a stitch.
- Color A will make up 2/3 of the scarf size. Color B will make up the remaining 1/3.
- Repeat rows consist of a decrease at the beginning of each row and an increase at the end of each row in order to maintain a diagonal edge as the piece gets longer. The decreases and increases are indicated in red.
- I chose NOT to SC evenly around the entire outside edge as a design preference, but you do you! If you want a SC trim around the whole piece, add that step in before tying off.
