I love texture and a crochet pattern that showcases it — this scarf hits the mark! The stitches form two distinctly different looks, one side looks like raised rows that resemble knitting and the other like puff clusters. Both are very pleasing to the eye.
The yarn I chose for this project has been sitting in my basket for quite a while. It was a gift from a fellow crocheter who was looking to de-stash her substantial collection. It is a Classic Elite Yarn named Firefly, in a linen blend fiber. Firefly has a subtle sheen and drape that gives it a distinctly feminine look.
•Sport weight yarn, I used Firefly by Classic Elite Yarns, 3 skeins 155 yards each
• Hook H/5.00 mm
• Yarn needle for weaving ends
Gauge: Not important for this project, however, I got approximately 18 sts x 10 rows in pattern to 4”
ch – chain
dc – double crochet
sc – single crochet
sl st(s) – slip stitch(es)
st(s) – stitch(es)
cluster – 3 dc in same stitch
• Weave ends as you work
• Ch1 at beginning of the Row/Round does not count as a stitch
• Number in ( ) at end of Row/Round indicates the number of stitches in that Row or Round
• Work instructions in [ ] or between *, the designated number of times
You can make this scarf as long or short as you like. Your starting chain must be a multiple of 3, that is, a number that can be divided evenly by 3.
The scarf is worked in the round and turned for each row to achieve a different texture on each side.
Round 1: Ch 291, join with sl st to beginning ch, ch 3, 2 dc in same st, skip 2, [cluster in next ch, skip 2], repeat between [ ] to end. Join with sl st to top of ch 3, sl st into next dc. (97 clusters)
Round 2 (worked in front loop only): Ch 1, turn, 3 sc in same st, skip next 2 dc, [3 sc in next dc, skip next 2 dc], repeat between [ ] to end. Join with sl st to first sc, sl st into next sc.
Round 3 (worked in back loop only): Ch 3, turn, 2 dc in same st, skip next 2 sc, [cluster in next sc, skip next 2 sc], repeat between [ ] to end. Join with sl st to top of ch 3, sl st into next sc.
Repeat Rounds 2 and 3, eight more times or until scarf is desired width.
Round 1 (side with ridges is facing you): Ch 1, turn, sc in same st, sc in space between each cluster and in center dc of each cluster, to end. Join with sl to first sc. Fasten off.
Round 2(side with ridges is facing you): Join in any ch 2 space of beginning chain on Round 1, ch 1, sc in same st, sc in each ch that has a cluster and in each ch 2 space around. Join with sl st to beg sc. Fasten off.
Be sure to have the same number of sc in Rounds 1 and 2.
