I've loved the Even Moss Stitch for a very long time now. I've used it to make dishcloths and a child's bonnet. If you're interested in the tutorial for this stitch, please see the Crochet Even Moss Stitch Tutorial.
Scarfs are fun and this one has pockets on the ends to keep your hands warm and cozy. Worked in Super Bulky yarn, it's a really quick project.
Gather your materials and let's get started!
3 Skeins of Super Bulky yarn | Lion Brand's Wool Ease Thick & Quick (Peacock) 318 yards
US 10mm Crochet Hook | I'm using a handmade double ended hook from Heart Sprinkle
ch - Chain
st(s) - Stitch(es)
sl st - Slip Stitch
hdc - Half Double Crochet
Gauge: Gauge isn't as important because you're measuring for the size you want.
1" = 1 Slip Stitch + 1 Hdc stitch | 1 Row
Pattern: This pattern is for a Child when wrap around neck once. Fits adults if just draped on neck. Adjust depending on your preference.
Width: 8 inches wide and 58 inches long
The scarf is very easy to adjust. You chain (even number of sts) the width you want your scarf and you continue for as long as you want the scarf (keep in mind you'll need to fold both ends up to form pockets).
Foundation: ch 16 sts
Row 1: sl st into the SECOND chain from the hook, *1hdc into next st, 1 sl st into next. Repeat from * to end.
Note: You will always start & end with a slip stitch.
Row 2: ch1 & turn. 1 sl st into the (first) same st, *1hdc into next st, 1 sl st into next. Repeat from * to end.
Note: You will be working the slip stitches into the slip stitch in previous row & half double crochets into the half double crochet from previous row.
Repeat Row 2 until work measures 69-70". 9 inches of this on each side will be folded up for pockets. Do not fasten off.
Note: Make sure the "bumps" line up in each row. If not, you're working the sts into the wrong space.
Pockets (optional): If you skip pockets, I recommend crocheting until you run out of yarn if you like.
Fold the ends up creating a 9 inch pocket.
Note: You may choose to use a yarn needle to sew the pockets but I personally prefer to work slip sts.
Step 1: sl st along the edge of the pockets.
Step 2: Fasten off and attach yarn on the other side of the pocket. Sl st this side as well. Fasten off.
Step 3: Repeat Step 2 for the other side of the scarf to create the other pocket. Make sure your "wrong side" is on the same side.
Flip pockets so that right side is on the outside & the seam is on the inside.
Weave in all the happy ends.
