New Scarves Free Crochet Pattern

If you are looking for a quick gift that will make a statement then this scarf is for you. You can whip it up in a couple hours and wear it tonight. You can use up some your stash as it only takes 220 yards of Aran or DK weight yarn. Make sure that you are only using one ball as it doesn't work really well with yarn that needs to be joined.

I have been a crochet queen lately, making so many new scarves and I will have some of them for sale soon. But today I wanted to show you a few that I have created. This is a f aux broomstick lace scarf. Free Pattern at the end of the post.
This scarf is an Infinity Scarf and is made with Red Heart Boutique Unforgettable. I really like how it turned out. This is a very easy pattern to make up. It is a quick one skein project. 

Here is a close up of the color changes 

This is the solid version. I like it because it is a warm and cozy wrap. I used Vanna's Choice Yarn, Silver Grey for this and a Q Hook 

One things about this pattern is once you are finished and have seamed it up you have to stretch it and that is where the magic happens. It goes from looking like a normal single crochet to looking like complicated broomstick lace. 


Here is the pattern: 
Supplies: 
1 skein of worsted weight yarn. any yarn will do you just need to have at least 250 yards. 
Q Hook
Darning needle

Chain 21
Row 1: sc in the 2nd chain from the hook and sc across 
Row 2: chain 1, sc across 
repeat row 2 until about 10 yards of yarn is left. DO NOT FASTEN OFF

Finishing: place the beginning of the piece next to the end and sc the to ends together making sure not to twist your scarf. Once you have finished the row of single crochet fasten off and weave in the ends. 

Stretch your scarf out and try it on. 

sc = Single Crochet (US) or Double Crochet (UK)

You can find me around the web here: Etsy , Ravelry,  InstagramFacebookPinterest. 

Here are a few of the yarns that will work great for this project.

About how many rows?

Kate Cannon said...

I didn't count the rows I just worked untili was down to about 10 yards of yarn

Working on it now-- it's very pretty even unstretched!

I am using a partial skein I had laying around... any guess as to how long the scarf should be before stretching... since I have a partial, I'm not sure how far to go! lol! I can just wing it, but I thought I'd ask, in case you knew.

I'm guessing, based on the openness of the finished scarf that it maybe doubles in length? Does that sound about right?

Thanks again for the pattern!

Finished!
I have no idea how much yarn I used, but when I stopped it measured 8"x32" flat, about 80 rows.

I slip-stitched the ends together, stretched it, and now have a tube that measures 5"x28" (so about 56" around).

I am so pleased with it! Thank you so much for sharing your pattern and directions!

What size hook did you use for the rainbow color one, the first picture?

Thanks for the pattern, do you think a n or p hook would work too? I cant find q hooks in the stores near me, and p is the largest I have.

I just started working on this beauty! Question tho. Why do you leave so much yarn at the end? Am I supposed to use it all when stitching together? Seems like alot left is all. Thank you for the awesome pattern!

I have made several of these scarves for myself. I was wondering if it was okay with you if I made some up and tried to sell them in my Etsy store.

This looks like a form of Tunisian crochet. I can't figure out how you got this look by just doing normal sc. :headscratch:
