I work 99% of my scarves (and hats for that matter!) in the round, but I decided I wanted to work up a fun long ribbed scarf for the holidays this year! This pattern was inspired by a spur of the moment purchase from Lion Brand Yarn–I had decided to treat myself to some new yarn I hadn’t tried, one of which was called Stitchbird (check it out here). I loved the colors and the black netting was very unique but when it arrived I realized I had NO IDEA what I was going to make with it! I finally decided, since it was bright and colorful, I would pair it with some of my favorite yarn (Wool Ease Thick and Quick) in complimenting colors to create a fun new scarf design!
What you will need for this pattern is 3 different colors of a super bulky (6) yarn like wool ease thick and quick (at least 60 yards each) and at least 130 yards of a multicolored bulky (5) yarn like Stitchbird, I believe a good substitute would be Lionbrand Homespun Yarn or something similar! You will also need a 10mm crochet hook! I used my Streamline Swirl by Furls for this particular project!
Abbreviations use in this pattern:
- CH- Chain
- HDC – Half Double Crochet
- BLO – Back Loop Only
- ST/STS – Stitch/Stitches
- **Ch 1 at the beginning of rows never counts as a stitch**
Alright, lets jump right in to making the body of the scarf!
Chain 125 in Color #1 bulky yarn
Row 1: HDC in 2nd chain from the hook & HDC across (124 STS)
Row 2: change to stitchbird, CH 1, 124 HDC BLO across
Row 3: change to color #2 bulky yarn, CH 1, 124 HDC BLO across
Row 4: change to stitchbird, CH 1, 124 HDC BLO across
Row 5: change to color #3 bulky yarn, CH 1, 124 HDC BLO across
Row 6: change to stitchbird, CH 1, 124 HDC BLO across
Row 7: change to color #1 bulky yarn, CH 1, 124 HDC BLO across
Repeat rows 2-7
Finish & weave in ends!
Time to add your fringe!
I use two strands of super bulky yarn for each “tassel/fringe” and place them along the edge of the scarf.
I hope you enjoyed this quick little project! I really enjoyed this new design and can’t wait to make in some more fun colors combos! Be sure to tag me on social media if you post your creations, I would LOVE to see and share them!
