This crochet scarf pattern can be worn in a variety of ways: as a bathing suit wrap or a head wrap for hanging out on the beach, or a dress up wrap or even a cowl for evening dinners. It is a simple design that will go well with any outfit.

This vacation scarf can be made in any size. This size requires only one hank; in order to achieve larger sizes you will need an additional hank. The best way to measure for what size you will need is to measure your hips at their widest point and subtract 10. That is how long, in inches you will make your beginning foundation chain. My hips measure 34” so I made my starting foundation chain 24”.

I did not use specific gauge or measurements in this free crochet pattern so that it can be easily adapted. Since the colors are what I really wanted to stand out in this pattern, it is a very simple design and will be easy to change size.

1 skein of Darn Good Yarn’s Anamika Silk/Silk Cloud yarn in Sunburst (for this size, larger sizes will require more yarn)
4.0mm crochet hook
Small needle to weave in ends

Finished Size
26”x26”, but it can be made in any size

Special Stitches

fdc- foundation double crochet
Chain 3(counts as 1st fdc). Yarn over and insert hook in 3rd chain from hook. Yarn over and pull up loop (3 loops on hook), yarn over and pull through 1 loop (this is an important step but easy to forget). Yarn over and pull through first two loops on hook (two loops remaining). Yarn over again and pull through last two loops on hook. This completes the second fdc (remember your 1st ch3 counted as the 1st fdc)
