Melody Scarf


Hello everyone, the weather has been miserable these past few days where I live. It has been snowing and raining non stop. To cheer myself up, I made a summery scarf. It only took two days to finish.

PLEASE NOTE: there were a few mistakes in the pattern, this is the edited version.

Materials: 
Yarn : Alize “diva baby” color 143 (1 skeins) 100% Microfiber Acrylic (100 g-3.52 Oz/350 mt-383yds)
Hook size: 3 mm.
Tapestry needle

Measurements:  width  approx. 13.5 cm / 5.3 inch , length approx. 140.5 cm / 55.3 inches.

Abbreviations: 
ch : chain
sc : single crochet
dc : double crochet
tc : treble crochet

Notes:
  • For the start of the rows, ch 2 will count as a dc, and ch 3 will count as a tc.
  • The scarf is worked in multiplies of 5 plus 1.

Pattern

ch 45, turn. This is the right side

Row 1: skip 4 chs (count as a dc and ch 2), {skip 4 chs, ( 3 dc, picot, 3 dc) in the next ch, ch 1} Repeat 6  more times, ch 1, skip the  next 4 chs, dc in the last ch, turn

Row 2: ch 4 (count as a tc and ch 1), ( tc, ch 1, tc) in the ch 1 space, ch 4, {( tc, ch 1, tc) in the next ch 1 space, ch 4} Repeat 5 more times, ( tc, ch 1, tc) in the ch 1 space, ch 1, tc into the second ch from the end, turn.

Row 3: ch 5( count as a tc and ch 2),{sc in the ch 1 space between the two tcs, ch 2, (tc, ch 1, tc) in the ch 4 space, ch 2} Repeat 6 more times, sc in the ch 1 space, ch 2, tc into the third ch from the end, turn.

Row 4: Ch 6 (count as a tc and ch 3), {(tc, ch 1, tc) in the ch 1 space between the two tcs, ch 3} Repeat 6 more times, tc into the third ch from the end, turn.

Row 5: Ch 4{ ( 3 dc, picot, 3 dc) in the next ch 1 between the two tcs in the previous row, ch 1} Repeat 6 more times. Ch 1, dc into the third ch from the end, turn.



Repeat the rows 2-5 to the required length. I repeated the pattern 38 times. Cut the yarn and weave in the loose end.

For the last repeat stop at row 3. Go back to the first row of your scarf and on the other side of the chs :
make a standing dc on the first ch, {ch 2, sc in the ch 4 space, ch 2, (tc, ch 1, tc) in the next ch} repeat 6 times, ch 2, sc in the next ch 4 space, ch 2, dc in the last ch.

  4. It's a beautiful scarf. I'm just a bit confused with something. On Row 2, it says skip 4 chains twice. Does that mean skip 8 or just 4? Thanks for clearing it up. Also, what does it mean when you say "picot?" Is that a stitch we should know. If so, where can I find how to do that? Thanks a bunch. :)

    1. Thank you,
      Yes you should skip 8 chains in total, the first 4 chains are the ones that will count as a ds and ch 2 made in the first row. Sorry it is a little bit confusing.

  5. Very pretty! I just started this scarf but I am confused already (my fault I'm sure).At the beginning of Row 3 you say to (tc, ch 1, tc) in ch 2 space. I can't figure out what ch2 space you are referring to. Help please?
