This is a great pattern for beginners in crochet. It uses all the basic stitches you would learn in your first classes and as you keep repeating and changing between the stitches it makes it easier to remember them. It is only a short scarf or neck warmer if you like so it quite quick to crochet and doesn’t use much yarn.
You will need
100g ball of Dk weight yarn
5mm crochet hook
St Stitches (this is shown at the end of every row so you know how many stitches you should have at the end of the round)
SS slip stitch
SC single crochet
DC double crochet
TC treble crochet
This pattern is worked in rows back and forth at the beginning of a new row you turn the work and chain up a bit to start your next row.
Row 1 – SC in second Ch from hook and then in each Ch across 20St
Row 2 – Ch 2 and turn. Work 1 DC in each SC across 20St
Row 3 – Ch 3 and turn. Work 1 TC in each DC across 20St
*Row 4 – Ch 1 and turn. Work 1 SC in each TC across 20 st
Row 5 – Ch 2 and turn. Work 1 DC in each SC across 20St
Row 6 – Ch 3 and turn. Work 1 TC in each DC across ** 20St
Repeat from * to ** 17 times or until work measures 70cm/ 27” (you should end on a treble row)
Ch 1 and turn. Work 1 SC in the next 5 TCs, Ch 20, skip the next 20 TCs, and work 1 SC in the next 5 TCs.
Ch 2 and turn. Work 1 DC in the next 5 SCs, work 20 DCs in the Ch space, and work 1 DC in the next 5 SCs.
Ch 3 and turn. Work 1 TC in each DC across 20St
Continue from * to ** repeat 3 more times ending on a treble row. Cut yarn and draw through loop to secure.
Sew in loose ends using wool needle.
To wear loop round you neck and post the beginning end of your scarf through the buttonhole.
For an alternative version you could attach a large interesting button of make a flower corsage to decorate you scarf.
I'll be writting up the pattern for this flower corsage to go with this scarf next.
Happy crochetng :)
