A while back I mentioned I was catching up on my crochet and promised pics and patterns. Well here you go. I recently bought myself a new winter coat and needed a scarf to go with it. I also whipped up a pair of hand warmers to match.
I worked this in rows all from the front. Technically this scarf is self-fringing, but I added extra fringe. Join a separate stand of yarn at the beginning of each row, leaving a long tail. Fasten off at the end of each row leaving a long tail. I used left over yarn from other projects. It takes about a half skein of each color.
Worsted weight yarn in 4 colors.
With color A, chain the desired length. Fasten off.
Row 1: Join color A. dc in each ch. Fasten off.
Row 2: Join color B. hdc in each st. Fasten off.
Continue each row in the same manner alternating colors and stitches as follows:
Row 3: Color C, dc
Row 4: Color B , dc
Row 5: Color D, sc
Row 6: Color A, hdc
Row 7: Color C, hdc
Row 8: Color D, dc
Row 9: Color B, sc
Row 10: Color D, hdc
Row 11: Color C, sc
Row 12: Color B, dc
Row 13: Color A, hdc
Add additional fringe if desired. Trim fringe to desired length.
These are worked in continuous rounds. Use a stitch marker to mark the beginning of each round. Fsc stands for foundation single crochet, which I find easier than creating a chain then single crocheting the first row. There is great tutorial here. If 24 stitches makes a ring too small or big for your hand, add or subtract stitches accordingly. This is worked in front loops only, which provides some stretch.
Worsted weight yarn in color of choice
Row 1: fsc 24. sl st in first st to form a ring.
Row 2: Working in front loops only, dc in each st around.
Row 3-4: Repeat row 2.
Row 5: Dc in both loops of 1st st. Chain 5. Skip next 5 stitches. Dc in 7th st. This creates the thumb hole. Dc in front loops of each remaining st.
Row 6: Dc in front loops around.
Row 7 – 12: Repeat row 6.
Row 13: Sc in both loops around. Fasten off. Weave in ends.
These are the first patterns I’ve ever tried to type out, so please let me know if anything is confusing and I will try to clarify. Happy hooking!
