The So Good, You’ll Want to Borrow it Beanie was such a hit with everyone for their fellas, I thought it would be fun to make a matching scarf for the girls. I used the beautiful Lion Brand Mandala yarn for the project. It has long and wonderful color changes that I think you’ll love. You can even scroll down to enter to win one skein for yourself!
- Lion Brand Mandala Yarn, #3 Light Worsted Weight, 100% Acyrlic, 590 yards/150g, Colorway: Genie
- Hook Size: H/5.0mm
- Tapestry Needle for Weaving in the ends.
ch – chain
rem – remaining
sc – single crochet
sl st – slip stitch
sc2tog – single crochet 2 stitches together
sp(s) – space(s)
Gauge: 16 sc and 20 rows = 4″
Finished Measurement: 28″ x 7″ (laying flat)
- Ch 1 in the first st is not considered the first sc in the pattern.
- When ending Round 2, I suggest that you sl st into the ch-1 sp instead of the first st before you start Round 3. This is because you are ending the round with a ch 1. It will leave a slight space when you sl st straight into the first stitch. I played around and decided to sl st into the ch-1 sp then sl st into the first st to begin Round 3. It closes up that space and looks much better. It’s not necessary to do it this way, but you might want to test it out and see if it works well for you.
- Since I used a self striping yarn, I changed the pattern from the original of the So Good, You’ll borrow it beanie. If you want to use different colors for your scarf instead of a self-striping yarn like I did for the beanie, you will follow the color sequence below:
- Round 1 – Color A
- Round 2 – Color A
- Round 3 – Color A
- Round 4 – Color B
- You will add a Round 5 (Repeat Round 4) – Color A
- Repeat Rounds 2-5
- Otherwise, if you use the Mandala or any other self striping yarn, you can follow the instructions below.
