Sunday Ribbed Scarf

If you need a quick idea for a last minute gift, crochet this Sunday Ribbed Scarf.  I hooked this up in really just a few hours on a quiet Sunday afternoon.  I had been wanted to design something using half double crochet for a while now.  It’s not my favorite stitch, but when I held a poll in our Stitch Social Group, it was by far the favorite stitch of the crocheters.

The entire scarf is worked in the back loop only to create the ribbed texture of this warm scarf.  It is also quiet fashionable as it gives the appearance of a cowl neckline, with slim tails on either side.  You could embellish your scarf if you have a second Cake with pom poms or tassels if you desire.  The finished size is 12″ by 80″.

    Thank you for the pattern I am just about finished my scarf . I did make it slightly smaller went to 45 hdc instead of 50 so that Id have enough yarn for pompoms and the scarf still looks just as lovely.

  3. Sue

    Love this scarf but how is it possible it only measures 12″ x 80″? I’m on row 47 and it already measures 12″ across.

      • Sue

        No I’m increasing every other row. What part of this measures 12″?

  4. Sue

    Please…On the first row it’s says ‘turn – 2 hdc ‘ what stitch do I put the hdc in? Thanks

    • Kate

      This is for Sue..after beginning to make this scarf I understand what you mean . Where it says “turn – 2 hdc” it does not mean to put 2 more hdc anywhere. It is telling you that you have 2 hdc made. If you continue to read the pattern it goes on to sa that every other row you have one more hdc. “Turn – 3 hdc”. “Turn – 4 hdc”. etc.

        Thank you, Kate, I got confused, too. Now it´s perfectly clear.

        I love the simplicity of the design, it´s got a scandinavian feel about it.

    I like the scarf/cowl very much and want to make it. I was wondering how much yarn was used to make this and what your stitch/row gauge was. Thanks.

    I really like this scarf. Thanks for the pattern. Its another project to add to my winter list. I may make a few and give them as gifts for next Christmas. I’ll just have to leave myself a reminder as to where I stored them LOL.

    I like it — specifically the cowl look from a scarf is nice!
