This beautiful scarf was designed for ladies, but instructions are included for adjusting the count to make it longer or shorter, depending on your needs.

This pattern is written in US terms.


Materials Needed:
5.5mm (I) hook, or hook needed to obtain gauge
550 yards of Red Heart Super Saver Worsted Weight Yarn (I used Pale Rose which is discontinued, but Light Raspberry is fairly close)
yarn needle
measuring tape

Stitches Used:
sl st = slip stitch
ch= chain
sc = single crochet
hdc = half double crochet
dc = double crochet

Additional Terms
-Crab Stitch (also known as the reverse single crochet). This stitch is formed as you would make a normal single crochet, but at the end, you go backward, working your next crab stitch into the previous stitch, and not the “next stitch” (ahead).
-hdc in the 3rd loop: Look at the top of the stitch, and locate the sideways “V”, bend the stitch to look at the back, and you should see another “V”. You’ll be working into the back loop of that “V”, this is called the 3rd loop. When you are working in rows, this 3rd loop may be facing you after you turn!

13 stitches in 4”

Approximately 7 ft. long, including fringe, by 6 in. tall

Additional Notes:
-Ch 1 at the beginning of a row is not counted as a stitch, ch 2 is counted as a stitch
-The crab stitch edging is optional, but will give the scarf a more finished, professional look. -Some people may find their edge is more even when they go down a hook size or two for this step.
-Not a fan of doing the crab stitch? You may do a row of sc on the top and bottom edge of the scarf instead, if you wish.
-If you want to adjust the length, this pattern is worked in multiples of 6+1, (plus one for the first row’s turning chain)
