Being a student in Chicago means braving bitter cold winds every weekday for about seven months out of the year. So I decided that my current arsenal of scarves was not enough and proceeded to look up a nice pattern for a new one! However, most crochet scarf patterns I have found are lacy and light. I wanted something warm and thick and without huge holes. Unsatisfied with what I found, I started playing around a little and discovered a simple pattern that makes your scarf thick and knubby, but far from boring!



It is about 6 inches wide and taller than me (which isn't saying much), long enough to wrap around my neck:

(on my not-so-lovely self; please forgive the layers and layers I'm wearing to keep me warm in my non-heated home Tongue)

The yarn I used was a pastel bluish lavender, although it's a bit washed out in these pictures. The pattern is very simple: 1 dc, 4 fpdc, 4 bpdc, 4 fpdc, 4 bpdc, 4 fpdc, 1 dc. The final effect is a fun texture that keeps you very, very warm.

I really like the pattern, it makes your scarf look more finished, I think. Thank you for sharing!

That's a beautiful pattern you made - and the trick is just to alternate back and front loop stitching? Wow, I need to try that, it looks so good!

Love it!  It looks so snuggly warm.  The stitch pattern looks great, almost like a woven look.  I really like the color, what kind of yarn did you use?  It looks really soft  Smiley  Adding to my to do list!

Thanks for all your comments guys! To Aiki and Connie, I used a full skein of Caron Simply Soft and an H hook. The color is Lavender Blue, but oddly, I just looked on the website and I don't see it.  Huh Oh well. I got it at Michael's, if anyone is interested in getting the same color. Thanks again for all the praise.  Grin

Lately all I've been making is scarves (mostly because that's all I know how to crochet) but they are no where near as fabulous as yours!!! Very pretty!

I absolutely love this stitch pattern that you have here! I'm stealing it. Consider it stolen. When I make something I'll pay you credit though Smiley

Love love it.
