Fresh Air – A Free Crochet Summer Scarf

Another fun summer scarf but this time I used Cascade ultra pima cotton and oh….. it’s so soft and the sheen  to the yarn is incredible.  I’ve made a couple of things using this yarn with one being this jacket.  It turned out fabulous too.  You simply can’t go wrong using this yarn.

Supplies:

  • Yarn – Cascade Ultra Pima Cotton or yarn of your choice. Approximately 170-200 yds.
  • Hook – I/5.5
  • Tapestry needle for weaving in the ends

Gauge: Gauge is not really that important using this scarf.  It’s very versatile to meet your desired length and width.

Note:  The stitching for the scarf uses some fpdc and bpdc which allows for some texture.  I realize that I used a large hook for the type of yarn but I wanted a very open and lacy type of scarf.  If you want it tighter, just drop your hook size.

Abbreviations: 
bpdc – back post double crochet
ch – chain
dc – double crochet
fpdc – front post double crochet

Ch multiples of 3 plus 1. (I chained 21 +1 =22)

Row 1:  dc in 4th ch from hook, dc in each ch across, turn.

Row 2:  ch 3 (counts as first dc here and throughout the pattern), skip next dc, *(dc, ch 1, dc) in next dc,**, skip next 2 dc*;  repeat from *to * across, ending the last repeat at **, skip next dc, dc in top of 3rd ch, turn

Row 3:  ch 3, *bpdc around the post of next dc, dc in next ch-1 sp, bpdc around the post of next dc;* repeat from *to* across ending with a dc in top of 3rd ch, turn.

Row 4:  ch 4 (counts as dc and ch 1 here and throughout the pattern), skip next dc, *fpdc around post of next dc**, ch 2, skip next 2 dc*, repeat from *to* ending the last repeat at **, ch 1, skip next dc, dc in top of 3rd ch

Row 5:  ch 3, dc in next ch-1 sp, *dc in next dc, 2 dc in next ch-2 sp*, repeat from *to* across, ending with dc in top of 3rd ch.

Repeat Rows 2-5 until reach desired length.

If you recognize the flower from my Lacy Summer Scarf, you’d know that I used the same Dalhia flower pattern from My Hobby is Crochet.  I love how dainty the flower is, and I really didn’t want something big to take away from the scarf.  I think it’s the perfect size!

I hope you enjoy the pattern.  Have a great day and be blessed!
