ch chain
ch-sp chain space
dc double crochet
fsc foundation single crochet (foundation double crochet for UK/Aus)
sc single crochet (double crochet for UK/Aus)
sl st slip stitch
st stitch

You will need…

  • Yarn of your choice and an appropriate hook (see the yarn’s ball band for hook size)
  • Sample scarves:
    • Heavy worsted weight yarn and a J US/6mm hook (sample scarf uses 105m/115yd Lion Brand Vanna’s Choice)
    • Bulky weight yarn and a K US/6.5mm hook (sample scarf uses 75m/82yd Lion Brand Homespun)
  • Yarn needle to weave in ends


Worsted weight finished scarf measures 63″ x 3″ (160cm x 7.5cm)

Bulky weight finished scarf (reduced to 23 repeats) measures 66″ x 3.25″ (168cm x 8cm)


Gauge is not important for this pattern – I suggest you use the hook size recommended on the ball band of your yarn.

Resizing the pattern

The foundation row is a multiple of 6 + 1 stitches. The pattern is written with 27 repeats:  (27×6) +1 = 163 st.

To modify the length of the scarf, increase or reduce the number of repeats by increasing or reducing the foundation row by a multiple of 6 stitches.

If you have n repeats:

  • The “53 times” in Rnd 1 will become (2n – 1) times.
  • The “26 times” in Rnd 2 will become (n – 1) times.

e.g. 20 repeats would give (2 x 20 – 1) = 39 in Rnd 1, and (20 – 1) = 19 in Rnd 2.

See also the accompanying stitch diagram to make the pattern and repeats easier to follow.

Special stitches

Foundation single crochet (fsc). This technique creates both the foundation chain and a row of single crochet stitches in one row. It makes a stretchy foundation, and is far easier to work into than a chain.

  • First fsc stitch: ch 2, insert hook into second chain from hook and draw up a loop, yarn over and draw through one loop on hook (this forms the chain), yarn over and draw through 2 loops on hook (this forms the single crochet). (1 fsc completed)
  • Each subsequent fsc stitch is worked under the 2 loops that form the chain at the bottom of the previous stitch. Insert hook under both loops of the chain, draw up a loop, yarn over and draw through one loop on hook (this forms the chain), yarn over and draw through 2 loops on hook (this forms the single crochet).

2-dc fan: (dc, ch 1, dc) in st

3-dc fan: (dc, ch 1, dc, ch 1, dc) in st

4-dc fan: (dc, ch 1, dc, ch 1, dc, ch 1, dc) in st


Please note this looks much clearer in the PDF version! Why not donate a dollar (or more) and you’ll get the nicely formatted printable version?

Note: Please also see the accompanying charted stitch diagram.

Fsc 163 (or ch 164, sc in 2nd chain from hook and in each remaining chain). (163 st).

Rnd 1: ch 5 (counts as dc + ch 2), (dc, ch 2, dc) in same st (at base of chain),
[skip next 2 st, (dc, ch 2, dc) in next st] 53 times,
skip next 2 st, (dc, ch 2, dc, ch 2, dc) in last st, ch 2 (this will curve around the end of the foundation),
in opposite side of foundation: (dc, ch 2, dc, ch 2, dc) in first st,
[skip next 2 st, (dc, ch 2, dc) in next st] 53 times,
skip next 2 st, (dc, ch 2, dc, ch 2, dc) in last st,
ch 2, join with sl st to top of ch 3.
Rnd 2: sl st in ch-sp, ch 4 (counts as dc + ch 1), dc in same st (at base of chain),
ch 1, 3-dc fan in next ch-sp, ch 1, sc in next ch-sp,
(ch 1, 4-dc fan in next ch-sp, ch 1, sc in next ch-sp) 26 times,
ch 1, (3-dc fan in next ch-sp, ch 1, 2-dc fan in next ch-sp, ch 1) 2 times, 3-dc fan in next ch-sp, ch 1, sc in next ch-sp,
(ch 1, 4-dc fan in next ch-sp, ch 1, sc in next ch-sp) 26 times,
ch 1, 3-dc fan in next ch-sp, ch 1, 2-dc fan in next ch-sp, ch 1, 3-dc fan in next ch-sp, ch 1, join with sl st to top of ch 3.
