The Inspiration & Design
I am always looking to incorporate different stitches into my crochet patterns. When I came across the Even Berry Stitch again, I just knew it would make for the most perfectly textured scarf. I love the subtle berries that this stitch creates. The Even Berry Stitch creates these little bobbles that aren’t too big and overbearing. I actually used a variation of this stitch for my Berry Stitch Earwarmer pattern a while ago.
The Jubilee Crochet Scarf is created by crocheting panels that consist of four different colors, making a color block effect. I love to play with color and this scarf allows you to do just that. I had a lot of fun picking out different color options. This scarf would certainly look just as beautiful in one solid color.
The construction is super simple as you will only be crocheting in back and forth rows. The short side of the panels are then sewn together to form a circle. You always have the option of not sewing the short ends together and leaving it as a traditional scarf.
I used Lion Brand Basic Stitch Premium to crochet the Jubilee Scarf. This is a machine washable and dryable acrylic yarn that creates amazing stitch definition. It is a worsted weight yarn that comes in 24 classic colors. Some of my favorite colors are Tourmaline, Opal and Boysenberry. It is a versatile yarn that can be used for charity projects, heirlooms and accessories. It also contains a generous 219 yards per skein.

- Be sure to make your turning ch.1 loose as you will be working into this chain at the end of every round.
- When working Row 4, crocheting a slip stitch into the turning chain can cause the edge of your scarf to tighten. You can do one of two things to fix this, (1) work your turning ch.1 very loose, (2) work a sc instead of a slip stitch in the turning ch.1.
- The 4 colors I chose for this scarf are Color A – Slate, Color B – Black, Color C – Opal, and Color D – Saffron.
Lion Brand Basic Stitch Premium yarn in 4 colors. You will need 1/2 skein in each color. If you choose to crochet your scarf in one solid color, then you will need 2 skeins in that desired color.
