Hello Everyone! I actually created this pattern for my mom to give to her on her birthday. She loves to wear scarves and is pretty simplistic when it comes to winter accessories. She rarely buys anything for herself and is such a giving and caring person, (raising 7 kids!). I wanted to create something that she could wear with any color. At the moment, the color coat she wears is purple. I had a really hard time finding a color that matched her coat. I decided on this color from Lion Brand Thick & Quick called Fisherman. It is such a beautiful neutral color, and the yarn is so nice to work with. This scarf truly does work up quickly. I believe I finished it in a little over two hours!
I Just love the texture!……
I knew I wanted to try something different so I started playing around with a mixture of crochet stitches and this is what I came up with! I love how just two simple stitches creates such a beautiful texture! When the scarf started to come together, it reminded me of a big fluffy cloud. I hope you like the pattern!
10mm Crochet hook
2 Skeins of Lionbrand Wool-Ease Thick & Quick yarn in Fisherman or any comparable chunky yarn
Tapestry needle to weave in any ends
You can make this scarf as long or short as you want. Just change the number of starting chains. Also, make sure your chain count is an odd number
You can also make this in a worsted weight yarn. Just adjust the starting chains to your desired length. I always start my first stitch of the round in the same stitch as my ch.1
Foundation Single Crochet (FSC)
Single Crochet (SC)
Slip Stitch (SS)
Half Double Crochet (HDC)
On the 121 stitch, join with a slip stitch to create a circle. You can watch this video HERE that explains how to join with a FSC. I like this video because it shows you how to join both the bottom and top of the FSC.
If you are not comfortable with the FSC you can simply chain 121 and join with a slip stitch to your first chain. Then complete a round of sc. Remember to start your first sc in the same stitch as your ch.1
Ch. 1, ss in same stitch, HDC in the next. *ss in next stitch, hdc in the next.* Repeat *to* until you reach the end of the round, ss in top of beginning ss of round. NOTE: I try to make my starting ss of the round very loose. I find it helps when having to join the round with another ss.
Ch. 1 TURN! You will now work your stitches in the opposite direction, ss in the same stitch, hdc in the next. *ss in the next stitch, hdc in the next.* Repeat *to* until you reach the end of the round, ss in top of beginning ss of round.
Repeat Row 2 remembering to turn after every row!
Ch. 1 (do not turn) sc in the same stitch and each stitch around. Join with a ss to top of beginning sc of the round.
Ch. 1, ss in same stitch and each stitch around. Join with a ss to top of beginning ss of the round.
Bind off and weave in any loose ends with your tapestry needle.
