Crochet Color Wheel Scarf

The Crochet Colour Wheel Scarf is a challenge we have for you. It is using the newest yarn brand called Caron Little Crafties. There are 20 balls inside the package, which means 20 fabulous colours. It is a level #4 weight yarn.

Pattern Options – Alternative

  • Using a 5 mm / H Hook, you can follow the pattern below as written. The scarf will be 76″ long.
  • I used 6 strands of 20″ per colour for the fringe instead of 4.
  • You have enough yarn to make it longer up to 106″. Chain 362 instead. You will have enough left over to make your fringe and yarn in the ball that is decent that you won’t play yarn chicken.

Full disclaimer: The angle of the base is accidental as I kept adding 1 extra stitch by accident at the end of each row. I was not identifying the last stitch correctly but was consistent. So it’s an accident but looks intentional.

Original Pattern Inspiration

Crochet Caron x Pantone Stripes Scarf

Crochet Caron x Pantone Stripes Scarf

I looked at the Caron x Pantone Stripes Scarf as a sample. This yarn is now discontinued but what compelled me was the colour play. I thought, what if Caron Little Crafties could do the same thing?

I’m not great with colour play, so I asked Daniel to help me. He looked at the colours and thought, what if you look at the colour wheel to determine your next colour?

The scarf will appear at random but in harmony. It was brilliant.

  1. Pick any colour from the bag. (I used 17 colours and didn’t use white, black or grey).
  2. Crochet the first row with that colour.
  3. Look at the colour wheel to determine the colour that will go with it. Crochet it to confirm.

You have a choice of doing it in your own way. OR, you can do what I did and look across the wheel to see the complementary colour. OR, you can do contrasting colours by looking for the next colour like a triangle shape.

Now, pick a new colour from the bag and crochet it. Then look for its match to crochet it. Continue this strategy. It’s possible that everyone’s scarves will look different because though you randomly pick one colour from the bag, the second colour that is a colour wheel match could be complementary or contrasting. There are really no wrong answers.

Mikey, aka Michael Sellick, of The Crochet Crowd, started this online journey back in 2008. A mere hobby in trying to reach out to others as he was mentally struggling with his own issues. His goal was simple, find others in the yarn communities, like him, that have a common interest.

The journey and main baby of the whole idea started with a YouTube Channel and then in 2011, an official website was developed. Michael is not only the face of The Crochet Crowd but also the working engine behind the crowd in self-taught programming, social media and so much more.

Enjoy the stitching journey. Life is short, enjoy this wonderful hobby and all of the learning opportunities that come with it.

    Two minor corrections:
    https://www.yarnspirations.com/caron-little-crafties-yarn/296625M.html
    says it’s a 4-weight yarn. 20g / 58m per ball.

    Typo on your color wheel diagram: “complemintary” –> “complementary”. You have it spelled correctly everywhere else in the text.

      Darnit it. I will need to redo the diagram another time. There wasn’t a spell check done when I did it in illustrator. Thanks for the heads up. I kept mispelling it while writing the article. I have updated it to #4. Thanks. I had thrown out my package and guessed.

        Hello Mikey and Diva Dan!

        I was wondering- if possible! If you would be interested in doing a cameo for my mom for Christmas! We live in Saskatchewan and won’t be able to get together for Christmas because of government restrictions.

        I don’t think you are on Cameo! I was scrolling through the list and I thought to myself… I know who she would really want to have a cameo from!!! You two!!!!! My mom and I just LOVE you guys! You bring us so much joy!!!

        I would love to pay you guys to say merry Christmas in a video that I could send to her and my dad if possible! πŸ’›πŸ’›πŸ’›πŸ§Ά

        No worries if not! I just thought I would give it a shot!!

        Sending all my love! Merry Christmas!
