Crochet Scarf Patterns


I know, my break from crochet didn’t last very long, but this time my post has something for you – patterns for the two scarves I shared photos of at the beginning of the week.

They are actually crocheted from a fairly simple pattern, but be warned, we are going to crochet this sideways, with really long rows, so if you’re not up for that, stop reading now!

Right, the ribbed scarf first – the one with lots of different colours in it.

You will need:
2 100g Balls of chunky wool – I used a variegated one
6mm Crochet hook

Method:
Row 1: Cast on 250 stitches (I did warn you the rows were long - but the good news is that at least you only have to crochet 8 of them!)
Row 2: Treble Crochet into each stitch, chain 3 at the end of the row
Row 3: Treble Crochet  into the back half of each stitch, this is what gives it the lovely ribbed effect. Chain 3 at the end of each row.
Row 4 – 8: Repeat row 3, and at the end of row 8 cast off instead of Chaining 3.

See told you it was easy!

The second scarf, the lacy looking one is very similar.  So here goes for the pattern:

You will need:
2 100g balls of chunky wool (you may only need one ball, but I unpicked an old scarf so I’m not exactly sure how much I used)
6mm Crochet hook

Method:
Row 1: Cast on 200 stitches
Row 2: Treble Crochet (Tr) into each stitch, chain (Ch) 3 at the end of the row
NOTE: For the rest of the pattern you will be crocheting into the back half of the stitch only
Row 3:  Tr2, *Ch1, Tr3* repeat from * to * until you reach the end of the row, Ch3
Row 4: Tr into each stitch, Ch3 at the end of the row.
Row 5 – 8: Repeat rows 2 and 3, at the end of row 8 don't crochet the chains, just cast off.

Enjoy!

  1. I've done a few now using the first method - have one on the hook at the moment as a christmas pressie - I do them a bit shorter though and join the short ends to make infinity scarves :)
