Chunky scarves are such a great winter accessory. It's not even officially winter yet, but it has been really cold the last couple of weeks (35°F is really cold for California! I know, we're a bunch of wimps). I will be working on a cowl pattern soon, so stay posted! Seems like gloves and beanies would be appropriate too.
This scarf measures 8 inches wide and 33.5 inches long. I love the heavy/bulky feel of it and the way it looks outside a coat. The pattern is extremely simple and becomes mindless, so it's perfect for movie-crocheting (my favorite thing to do).
You may sell the finished product from this pattern, but please reference and link this post. Please don't claim this pattern as your own or sell the pattern. I'd love to see pictures of your finished product! You can put them on Ravelry or post them on my Facebook Page.
Materials:3 skeins of Charcoal Wool-Ease Thick & Quick yarn
Size N crochet hook (10.00 mm)
Abbreviations:Ch = chain
hdc = half double crochet
sl st = slip stitch
Notes:This scarf is in a continual around. Do not sl st to join at the end of each round. Move the stitch marker up after competing each round.
Scarf:Make a ch that is the desired length of your scarf. For this scarf, I chained 140 (in retrospect, I would make it shorter; it's a little too long for me).
Bring the end of the ch to the beginning and sl st in the first ch to make a circle. Be really careful not to twist the ch when slip stitching (triple check if you have to. There's nothing worse than realizing there's a twist in your scarf after you've started many rows and having to start over).
Round 1:Place the stitch marker in place. Hdc in each ch around.
Round 2:Hdc in the loop behind each stitch around. When you crochet in this back loop, it pushes the two loops to the front to make the ribbing (see pictures).
Repeat Round 2 until your scarf is the desired width. Sk 1 ch and sl st in the next stitch (make the sl st in the normal hdc stitch, as opposed to the back loop you've been working in). Fasten off and weave in all loose ends.
How easy is that?
