Comfort Scarf

comforting scarf-1

Crochet Hook Size: L-hook (8mm) Go up or down a size if you need to stay within the 4-4 1/2″ width

Yarn: SuperSaver Red Heart SuperSaver Medium Purple #4 Worsted 100% Acrylic Made in USA

Size: 4 1/2″ width, 60″ length

 

This is a very feminine loose crocheted scarf. The big crochet hook makes this economy yarn super soft and comforting. I experimented many times until I came up with this pleasing pattern. I designed it for the charity, Handmade Especially For You which makes scarves to abused women in shelters that need a bright and cheery scarf.

Foundation Chain: Ch 14 with 5″ tail to weave in or work into stitches to hide.

Row 1: This row is the edging. Dc 1 in the 5th ch from the hook (counts as 2 dc). 1 dc in the next chain. Sk 2 chains , make 1 cluster in the next ch (cluster: 2 dc, ch 1, 2 dc) sk 2 chs, 1 dc in the last 3 chs. In the last dc do 3 sl sts down to inconspicuously get to the other side of the foundation chain putting hook into 2 strands of yarn as a time .  Turn work upside down.

Row 2: Using tail end and working yarn together, ch 2 (counts as a dc) and 1 dc in the next 2 sts, sk 2 sts, do a cluster in the ch 1 space (2 dc, ch 1, 2 dc), sk 2 sts, do 1 dc in each of the last 2 sts and 1 dc n the turning chain (working in 2 strands not one.) Ch 2, turn.

Row 3-67: Repeat Row 2. On last row Finish off with a knot and hide and weave in the 5 inch end.

 

I would love to see your work on Ravelry or Facebook if you use this pattern. 😀
