Crochet Marine Color Scarf

You’ll need:

4 skeins of Red Heart Chunky Soft, colorway “Seafoam” (yarn weight: bulky 5);

Crochet hook 10 mm;

Yarn needle;

Scissors.

 

Size: without blocking: approx. 24cm wide x 215 cm long, excluding fringe.

For a longer scarf start with more foundation chain stitches.

For a wider scarf add more rows in the pattern repeat.

Multiple: 2 (add 1 chain more for the foundation chain)

 

Stitches control: 8 sc = 10 cm.

 

Special Stitches

Back Cross Double Crochet (bcrdc): sk 1 st, work 1 dc into the next st, 1 dc back into skipped st going behind the last dc just made.

Front Cross Double Crochet (fcrdc): sk 1 st, work 1 dc into the next st, 1 dc back into skipped st going in front of the last dc just made, so as not to catch it.

 

Instructions

Start with 173 chains.

Row 1: Work entire row into the back bump of starting chains: 1 sc in 2nd ch from hook and 1 sc in each ch across. (172 sc)

Row 2: ch1 (does not count as a st), turn; 1 sc in first sc and 1 sc in each sc across. (172 sc)

Row 3: (back cross double crochet row): ch 3 or csdc (will count as the first dc), turn, 1 dc in next sc, work bcrdc sts across the row to the last 2 sts, ending the row with 1 dc into each of the last 2 sts.

(You will have 84 crossed sts total between 2 dc sts at the beginning and 2 dc at the end of the row.)

Row 4 (front cross double crochet row): ch 3 or csdc (count as first dc), turn, 1 dc in next sc, work fcrdc sts across the row to the last 2 sts, ending the row with 1 dc into each of the last 2 sts.

(You will have 84 crossed sts total between 2 dc sts at the beginning and 2 dc at the end of the row.)

When alternating a row of back cross double crochet (row 3) with a row of front cross double crochet (row 4), you get a braid kind of look (when rotating the scarf to the vertical).

If you work correctly, the fcrdc sts should align with the bcrdc sts!

Rows 5 - 6 (single crochet rows): ch 1, turn, 1 sc into same st and 1 sc in each st across the row. (172 sc)

Rows 7- 18: repeat rows 3 - 6.

Basically you will alternate 2 rows of single crochet sts with 1 row of back cross sts + 1 row of front cross sts, ending with 2 rows of sc sts. Fasten off. Weave in the ends.

 

Adding Fringe

Cut lengths of yarn 38 cm long. Taking 2 strands together, knot into fringe evenly across each end of scarf. ( I have added 13 knots this way: 1 knot on the edge for each double crochet row, and 1 knot in the middle of 2 sc rows.)

Trim fringe evenly.
