Crochet Super Scarf: free pattern
I have always loved long, over sized scarves so this ‘wear a blanket around your neck’ trend is making me very happy. Unfortunately I live in Florida so when I set out to make my own crochet super scarf pattern I knew I had to cut down on the bulk a little and make it somewhat lacy. I came up with a simple shell stitch scarf pattern that will let me and others from a warmer climate, participate in this trend but not get heat stroke in December 🙂
Keep reading for the free crochet pattern!
What you need to crochet your lacy super scarf
You will need about 12 to 14 oz of worsted weight yarn (around 350 grams)
I used about 2 skeins of Red Heart with Love in Peacock and one skein Red Heart Super Saver yarn in gold.
A 6.5 mm / K hook
a yarn needle and scissors
letter sized piece of sturdy cardboard (for tassels)
Why I like this super scarf crochet pattern
I think this is a great stitch for beginners since the pattern is a simple one row repeat but the product comes out looking quite intricate. The stitch is lacy and wont be too bulky and heavy around your neck while still looking over sized.
make 6 dc in same st
Fake double crochet decrease (fdcdec):
This is worked like a dc decrease but it’s made into a single st. Work as follows:
yarn over (yo), insert hook into indicated st, yo and pull up a loop (lp), yo and pull through 2, yo, insert hook into same st, yo and pull up a lp, yo and pull through 2 lps, yo and pull through all remaining lps on hook.
Begin by ch 32
sc in second ch from hook, sc to end
ch 2, dc in same st, *sk next 2 st, make a shell st in next st, sk next 2 st, make a dc in next st, repeat from * to end, before the last dc of your row make a fdcinc instead! This will keep your edges looking neat and even.
continue working as in Row 2 until your scarf reaches the desired length (around 10 feet / 3 meters)
fasten off, weave in ends
Find a piece of sturdy cardboard that you can wrap your yarn around. I used a letter sized poster board.
wrap yarn a round ten times
pull off of your cardboard but make sure you hold the top of your yarn loops together
insert hook into the space between the first dc and the shell
pull your tassel through forming a knot
cut loops at the end
repeat four more times placing the tassels in the space between the dc and the shell.
