A Super Versatile Scarf
I wanted to create a scarf that could be worn everywhere from the office to running errands. I used an extra-large crochet hook to create this super airy look without sacrificing warmth. The texture gives it an amazing drape that’s perfect for wearing anyway you like.
With optional fringe and an easily adjustable length and width, Your Morning Scarf would make a wonderful gift for anyone you know. Work up the easy matching Your Morning Headband as well for an added bonus.
Before You Start
- 8 mm / US L – 11 hook.
- Lionbrand Wool Ease (80% Acrylic, 20% Wool, 85g, 180m / 197yds): 2 skeins Fisherman color
- Tapestry needle to weave in the ends – I love this set as it has different eye sizes for different yarn thicknesses and it comes in a small tube which is very convenient so I don’t lose them.
The scarf pattern is 170 cm / 67” long and 23 cm / 9” wide. To adjust the length, just add / remove stitches, no multiple necessary. To adjust the width, add / remove row repeats.
The gauge for this pattern, in hdc, is 10 st by 8 rows for a 10 cm by 10 cm square (4” by 4”).
This pattern uses US notations.
- st = stitch
- ch = chain
- hdc = half double crochet
Work instructions between [ ] the indicated number of times or until the end of the row / round.
The final number of stitches is indicated at the end of the row / round between < >.
The turning ch 1 doesn’t count as a stitch throughout the pattern except if mentioned otherwise.
The pattern is written in crochet shorthand. For example:
- “sc 1” means to single crochet in the next stitch,
- “sc 2” means to single crochet in each of the next 2 stitches,
- and “2 sc” means to single crochet twice in the next st.
- Back loop only: Work the stitch as you normally would but instead of working through both loops, only go through the back loop.
- Front loop only: Work the stitch as you normally would but instead of working through both loops, only go through the front loop.
- The scarf crochet pattern uses the highway stitch. Find the detailed tutorial here.
The Actual Scarf Crochet Pattern
Note: Step by step pictures illustrate the matching headband; hook size and drape are the only difference.
With your 8 mm / US L-11 hook ch 170 + 1.
Row 1: Starting in 2nd Ch from the hook hdc in each ch across, turn. <170 st>
Row 2: Ch 1, hdc front loop only, turn
Row 3: Ch 1, hdc back loop only, turn
Row 4 – 17: Repeat Rows 2 and 3.
Row 18: Repeat Row 2.
Fasten off and weave in the ends.
You’re done with the crocheting part. Make sure to weave in all the ends.
Carefully block your scarf to give it its best shape.
Don’t skip this step as it can make a huge difference. Read my detailed tutorial on why block, how-to, and all my tips and tricks if you need help.
Add fringe at the extremities of the scarf.
I added 10 groups on each side. Each group is made with 2 strands of 26 cm / 10.25”
