About Of Knitting
Like so many others, my love of all things yarn came from my mother at a young age. After retiring she decided to open a yarn shop in a small tourist town. A new world of yarn and design was opened as a result. I started creating my own patterns for the shop focusing on trendy items that could be worn every day. I love to use simple stitches and techniques to create the illusion of a more advanced piece. Of Knitting blog was created as a place to share these patterns along with tips and techniques. Most of my knitting is done from my little a-frame in central Pennsylvania where I live with my boyfriend and our dog.
Lark Winter Scarf
Chunky Crochet Scarf Pattern by Of Knitting
Few things say “Winter is Here” quite like a chunky crochet scarf. Serving as both a fashion statement and a source of warmth, I own far more than I am willing to admit. Long scarves with interesting detail are my absolute favorite and served as the inspiration for Lark.
If you prefer cowls over scarves check out the Adley One Skein cowl here.
The Lark Winter Scarf is crocheted length-wise with several different stitches creating a unique look and texture. At 65” (165 cm) long. it’s long enough to be worn several ways. Single Crochet stitches serve as an accent to the really fun and beautiful Berry Stitch.
- 3 Skeins Wool of the Andes Bulky Weight color Clarity 137 yards / 100 grams each
- Crochet Hook size L 8mm
- Tapestry needle for weaving in ends
- Approx 10 stitches in single crochet = 4” (10 cm)
- While an exact gauge match isn’t necessary, just remember that it will alter the size of the scarf and the amount of yarn needed.
- Bst – Berry Stitch: yarn over, insert hook, yarn over, pull up a loop, yarn over, pull through only the first loop on hook, yarn over, insert hook back into same stitch, yarn over, pull up a loop, yarn over, pull through all five loops on the hook.
- Ch – Chain Stitch
- SC – Single Crochet
- Create the initial chain with a slightly looser tension than normal. This will allow a little more stretch and keep that side from pulling.
- Each row starts with a Chain One (CH1) which counts as a stitch.
- This scarf can easily be made longer or shorter by altering the number of initial chain stitches – and can be made wider by adding additional sections below.
- You will be doing the Berry Stitch on the “wrong side” rows. This allows for the texture to show on the “right side” of the project.
- Loosely Chain 168
- Row 1: SC in the second chain in from the end and each chain to the end of the row, turn
- Row 2: Ch1 (this counts as the first stitch), SC in the front loop only in each stitch across, turn
- Row 3: Ch1, SC in the back loop only in each stitch across, turn
- Row 4: Ch1, Bst in each stitch across to the last stitch, SC, turn
- Row 5: Ch1, SC in each stitch across, turn
- Repeat Rows 2-5 three more times. (four total sections)
- Next Row: Ch1, SC in the front loop only in each stitch across, turn
- Last Row: Ch1, SC in the back loop only in each stitch across.
- Weave in all ends and enjoy!
