Pattern notes:

Scarf is made in continuous spiral method. Do not join at end of rounds, but work in

same direction around and around to form tube. Place thread marker to note beginning

of rounds and move it up as you go.

After Round 1, work all triple crochets in back loop only.

Stitches used: chain (ch), half double crochet (hdc), double crochet (dc), single crochet

(sc), slip stitch (sl st), triple crochet (trc)

Terms/Abbreviations: beginning (beg), each (ea), hook (hk), loop (lp), repeat (rep),

round (rnd), slip (sl), slip stitch (sl st), stitch (st)


Foundation chain: Ch 32, join into ring, being careful that chain is not twisted. (Note:

leave beginning tail hanging to use as a guide later for location of side “seam”.)

Rnd 1: Ch 1, sc in first ch, sc in next 7 ch, hdc in next 8 ch, dc in next 8 ch, trc in next 8

ch (32 sts). Do not join but continue to work in a continuous spiral. Place thread marker

to note beg of rnds and move it up as you work.

Rnd 2: Trc in back loop only (BLO) of ea st around (32 trc)

Rep Round 2 until scarf measures approx. 72”, or to desired length.

Ruffled trim (on ends):

Flatten scarf all along its length, using beginning tail as a guide to placement of fold line

for side “seam”. Holding one strand each of Color A and B together as one and working

through both thicknesses, attach yarn to first st on one end of scarf, and work as follows:

*Ch 3, sc in next st, rep from * across end of scarf, thus closing end of tube (15 ch-3 lps).

Fasten off.

Rep on other end of tube.

(Note: trim is attached in the free loops that remain from working in BLO on scarf body.)

Working from end of scarf toward center, hold one strand each of Color A and B together

as one and attach to first free lp on one end of scarf.

*Ch 3, sc in next free lp, rep from * around for a total of 5 rounds (or for desired number

of rounds). Sl st in last st at side “seam” and fasten off.
