This scarf pattern is slightly narrower and longer than my other scarves because it’s original job was a border piece for the 2020 Father’s Day CAL Scarves as Throw Blanket.

I also made a short scarf, sewed the ends together, and added tassels for a fun cowl.

You will receive 2 files:

  • a written pattern and chart for the interlocking technique starting at the short side of the scarf and the long end of the scarf, and a written pattern and chart for the mosaic technique,
  • plus a file on joining the scarves together (useful if you are creating a blanket).

The Locked Filet Mesh (LFM) interlocking crochet method uses only chain spaces and double crochets to create a mesh; two colors are worked alternately which creates the pattern.

Mosaic crochet is single crochet and double crochet stitches. The double crochet stitches cover some of the other color’s single crochet stitches to create the design. My patterns instruct you to cut your yarn at the end of each row. The back is striped but often gives a faint impression of the pattern on the front (sort of like illusion knitting). See an example here.

I have YouTube tutorials available for both crochet methods! Follow this link to get to my YouTube channel and find my other social links.
