MY CHEVRON SCARF PATTERN
My Chevron Scarf
Worsted weight yarn, amount of yarn will vary according to the length of the finished scarf.
Size H (5.00 mm) Hook
Notes: (1) When selecting a hook, choose one that makes a soft fabric. Depending upon your yarn you may need to use a larger size. (2) Turn the strip after the chains on each row. (3) Chain at beginning of the row counts as a hdc. (4) Long repeats of color will show up the chevrons best.
Scarf strip [make 2]:
Row 1: Hdc in 3rd ch from hook, hdc in 8 ch, skip 2 ch, hdc in 10 ch. [20 hdc]
Row 2: Ch 2, hdc in blo of 8 sts, skip 2 sts, hdc in blo of 9 sts. [18 hdc]
Note: This is the right side.
Row 3: Ch 2, hdc in blo of 7 sts, skip 2, hdc in blo of 8 sts. [16 hdc]
Row 4: Ch 2, hdc in blo of 6 sts, skip 2, hdc in blo of 7 sts. [14 hdc]
Row 5: Ch 2, hdc in blo of 5 sts, skip 2, hdc in blo of 6 sts. [12 hdc]
Row 6: Ch 7, hdc in 3rd ch from hook, hdc in 4 chains, hdc in blo of 4 sts, skip 2 sts, hdc in blo of 5 sts. [15 hdc]
Row 7: Ch 7, hdc in 3rd ch from hook, hdc in 4 ch, hdc in blo of 3 sts, skip 2 sts, hdc in blo of 9 sts. [18 hdc]
Repeat rows 3-7, until scarf is 1/ 2 the desired length, ending with row 5.
Ch 1, sc in blo of 2 hdc, hdc in blo across to last 2 sts, sc in blo only in last 2 sts. Fasten off.
On second strip don’t fasten off. Put the two strips right sides together and slip stitch them together working in the blo. Weave in ends.
Hdc half double crochet
Blo back loop only
of course 2 pieces....took me a minute to figure out why. mush-brain. i think this is going to be my "red scarf" project....
I've been doing this scarf, but with each chevron in an alternating shade of red, one candy apple and one brighter. It looks very interesting! I have the candy apple colour at the ends and the brighter colour will be joining the two pieces in the center.
I've been doing the same ol' scarves (yawn)since I started crocheting last year. What a great pattern!!! Thanks!!!Post a Comment
