Yeah. I’m just gonna get on here and start posting patterns again like it hasn’t been a year since the last one.
I have never really been a scarf/cowl making person. That’s probably because I have never really been a scarf/cowl wearing person. One, it just never got that cold in Los Angeles and two, I’m one of those people who feels chokey when things are around my neck.
Things have changed for me recently however. I just recently moved from Los Angeles to Memphis and out here the weather actually dips below 65 degrees in the fall and winter. Trust me…for a native Los Angeleno, that’s coooold. Now I find myself making scarves and hats and things and actually using them. Go figure. In that vein, here is my latest scarfie creation. Enjoy!
- J Hook
- Worsted weight yarn
- I used Caron One Pound in Soft Grey Mix
- Tapestry needle for weaving in ends
- Scissors, or sharp teeth…whatever works
*any ch 3 at the beginning of a row counts as a dc
Bobble (BB): YO, insert hook in specified stand draw up a lp to height of dc, YO and draw through 2 lps; (YO, insert hook in same st and draw up a lp, YO and draw through 2 lps) 4 times; YO and draw through all 6 lps in hook, ch 1; BB made.
**when doing a dc into a bobble, make sure you pick up the stitch at the back of the bobble
And Away We Go…
Row 1: dc in 4th ch from hook and in each ch across; ch 1, turn.
Row 2: sc in each of the first 2 sts; *BB in next st, sc in each of the next 3 sts; rpt from * to last 3 sts, BB in next st, sc in each of last 2 sts; ch 3.
Row 3: dc in each st across, sk turning ch; ch 1, turn
Row 4: sc in each of the first 4 sts; *BB in next st, sc in each of next 3 sts; rpt from * across, ending with sc in top of turning ch; ch 3, turn.
Row 5: rpt row 3.
Rows 6-9: rpt rows 2-5.
Row 10: sc in first 6 sts, ch 9, sk next 9 sts, sc in last 6 sts; ch 1, turn.
Rows 11-17: sc in each st across; ch 1, turn.
Row 18: sc in first 6 sts, ch 9, sk next 9 sts, sc in last 6 sts; ch 3, turn.
Row 19: dc in each st across; ch 1, turn.
Repeat rows 2-19 until piece reaches about 55″
Repeat rows 2-5 one more time. Fasten off. Weave in ends.
- Cut a length of yarn about 16” long.
- Turn scarf onto the back
- Tie the yarn around the center of the bow. **Make sure it centered!**
- Flip the scarf back over to the front
- Wrap the yarn around the center of the bow 4 or 5 times
- Tie another knot at the back of the bow. Weave in ends and cut off excess yarn.
- Shape the front of the bow a bit so that it sits nice and float and looks like a bow.
Add fringe if you want. My fringe hangs about 6” and I used five strands of yarn for each section of fringe.
That’s all she wrote. I hope you have as much fun working this one as I did creating her. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to leave a comment. I’ll be sure to get back with you in a reasonable amount of time.
Now go forth and create!
