Mustard Colored Ruffled Scarf


Ruffled Scarf
*The pattern instructions are for a toddler scarf, but this could easily be converted to a woman's scarf-which I plan to do shortly!

Materials Needed:
*H Hook
*Red Heart Yarn in Gold

Ch 12
R1: DC in 3rd chain from the hook, and in each chain across.  Ch 3, turn.
R2-R60: DC in front loop only of each stitch across.  Ch 3, turn. 

Crocheting only in the front loops creates "Free Loops" in which you will create ruffles later on.
 R61: 3DC in each stitch across (under both loops).  This is the first row of ruffled.  Now, we begin to work back over the scarf, adding the ruffles. 

3 DC around the last DC of previous row, as shown in picture. 
3 DC on the edge of the scarf, crocheted over the last DC of that row

Now you will begin to work in the free loops (abbreviated FL for the remainder of pattern).  3 DC in each FL across.  3 DC around last DC to move on to next row.  This requires turning the work, as the next row of FL is on the opposite side.  Continue spiraling around the scarf to in like manner to it's end. 





Happy Crocheting!

    1. Anne, the first part of the pattern (to row 60) creates the free loops. When you are crocheting only into the front loop, it leaves the back loop free for later use. This creates what looks like lines every other row on both sides. Those lines are made up of loops that you will crochet into to create the ruffles. I hope that clarifies things. If not, let me know and I will see if I can find/make a video to help!

  5. Love the pattern... Thank you for sharing. I am not so good with written directives. Much better with visual. I would love to see a video of your working this scarf. The ruffles are adorable !

  7. I actually do better with written directions, from my long history of using them. Your pattern is nicely brief, but I like to comment that it's good to include a word-only version of patterns to save on printing for those of us who don't need the photos. Crocheters have many views of how they like to use patterns -- with words, with or without graphs, with or without photos.
