UPDATE: 02/03/2014 – Country Appeal Beanie is now available. Enjoy!
Introducing my free scarf pattern called Country Appeal!!! Even a southern gal can get dressed up cute sometimes. We don’t always wear boots, wranglers and have a piece of straw hanging out of our mouth. (Although, if you’ve never tried it…..you should!)
Over Christmas I had a really good friend ask me to make some crochet gifts for her family members. She wanted two scarfs and two snoodies for some wonderful women in her family. Elena from Beatrice Ryan Designs had just released her beautiful snoodie, so no problem there. It worked up wonderfully without flaw. Sorry, I didn’t take “formal” pictures before sending them off, but you won’t be disappointed in the results.
Anyway, I sat down with my yarn, Red Heart Soft, and starting working with some various stitches and came up with something that my friend loved! I’ve finally had the time to sit down and write down the pattern to share with everyone too! The infinity scarf is super easy to make and easily adjustable to fit the length and width you want as long as you follow a couple of key ingredients!
#1 Key Ingredient – as long as your chain length is divisible by 4, you are good to go. For example, if you want to change the length of the pattern use numbers like 80, 100, 120, 140, 160, or 180.
#2 Key Ingredient – if you want your scarf thinner or wider just make sure that you follow the first 5 rounds of the pattern and the last 3 rounds of the pattern. Rounds 6-11 can be reduced or increased without causing any issues to the pattern.
Here’s the pattern for the scarf that you see in the photo.
- Red Heart Soft, or any worsted weight #4 yarn, 530-560 yards. I used 2 full skeins of yarn and a small amount of a 3rd skein. If you want to only use 2 skeins, you could drop a hook size from the recommended hook size.
- Hook Size – K/6.5
- Tapestry needle for weaving in the ends.
I’m not sure gauge is really that important since the scarf is so easily adaptable, but 6 dc and 3 rounds of tr rounds equal 2 inches.
ch – chain
dc – double crochet
fptr – front post treble crochet
hdc – half double crochet
sc – single crochet
sl st – slip stitch
tr – treble crochet
Ch 3 is considered first dc throughout the pattern.
Ch 4 is considered first tr throughout the pattern.
Join the first ch, ensuring that your chain is not twisted, sl st to first sc.
Round 1: Ch 1 and sc in first ch and each ch around, join with sl st to first sc.
Round 2, ch 1 and hdc in first sc and each sc around, join with sl st to first hdc.
Round 3: ch 3, dc in next hdc and each hdc around, join with sl st in top of 3rd ch.
Round 4: ch 4, tr in next 2 dc, fptr around post of dc in the previous round, *tr in next 3 dc, fptr around post of dc in the previous round*, repeat from *to*, join with sl st in top of 4th ch.
Round 5: ch 4, tr in next 2 tr, fptr around post of tr in the previous round, *tr in next 3 tr, fptr around post of tr in the previous round*, repeat from *to*, join with sl st in top of 4th ch.
Round 6-11: Repeat Round 5
Round 12: ch 3, dc in next st and each st around, join with sl st to first dc
Round 13: ch 1 and hdc in first dc and each dc around, join with sl st to first hdc.
Round 14: ch 1 and sc in first hdc and each hdc around, join with sl st to first sc.
Finish off and weave in the ends.
