Festive Crochet Ribbed Scarf
"This Festive Crochet Ribbed Scarf Pattern is an easy weekend project. Use the double crochet stitch paired with beautiful Holiday yarn colors to make this fun Christmas fashion. I made another Holiday scarf last week and had this beautiful yarn leftover. Of course, I could keep it in my yarn stash, but it is so much better when it is crocheted into this festive ribbed scarf. The white is now all gone; however, I still have burgundy and paddy green left. This scarf has a soft feel to it because of the ribbed stitch. It drapes nicely around the neck. The whole family will love wearing this scarf."
NotesIf you are looking for a beautiful and unique gift to crochet for someone special, this would be a welcomed handmade scarf at my house.This is the perfect length to wrap around your neck a few times for warmth and still have a bit left over to tuck inside your coat.
Crochet HookJ/10 or 6 mm hook
Yarn Weight(4) Medium Weight/Worsted Weight and Aran (16-20 stitches to 4 inches)
Crochet GaugeApproximately 16 stitches for 4 inches. When adjusting the width, just increase or decrease the number of rows. However, be conscious of the colors you are using for the rows. To adjust the length of the scarf, just add or reduce the number of no chain double crochet stitches.
Finished Size5 inches wide X 65 inches long without the fringe. With the fringe, the scarf is approximately 86 inches long.
- Burgundy Red Heart Yarn, approximately 100 yards.
- Paddy Green Red Heart Yarn, approximately 100 yards.
- White Red Heart Yarn, approximately 200 yards.
- Size J Crochet Hook
- Yarn Needle
Beginning with the White yarn: No Chain Double Crochet 200. (this completes your initial CH row and first row of DC).
Alternative beginning method if you prefer not to use the no chain double crochet method (CH 204 and start the second row in the 4th CH from the hook).
Row 2: CH 2, BLDC in each CH across. Turn.
Rows 3-4: Change to Burgundy yarn and repeat row 2.
Rows 5-6: Change back to White yarn and repeat row 2.
Rows 7-8: Change to the Paddy Green yarn and repeat row 2.
Rows 9-10: Change back to the White yarn and repeat row 2.
Finishing: I left the yarn pieces long when I was adding the new colors of yarn. Therefore, at the end, I tied the yarns together rather than weaving in. The yarn blends in with the fringe that you will be adding.
Adding the Fringe
The fringe used for the festive crochet ribbed scarf was 20 inches. I wrapped the yarn around my iPad case and cut one side. It was sturdy and easy to get the yarn around.
Add 4-5 pieces of yarn to each color section. I could have changed up the colors, but I decided to add the same color of fringe as the section I was adding it to.
Make sure that the yarn is snug.
