This scarf is full of scrappy goodness. A simple vertical granny stripe shows off the many colors of all of your beautiful yarn leftovers. Take a trip to your yarn stash and work up a scrappy scarf of your own. Stash busting is a wonderful thing! Instructions included if you are using a different yarn weight too.
Scrap Love Scarf
By Jennifer Dickerson
- Scraps of Yarn (For the scarf shown, I used leftovers of 4 skeins of Wool Ease Thick & Quick, about a half skein of each)
- Crochet Hook (Check your yarn for the appropriate hook size, I used an N hook for the scarf shown)
- Tapestry Needle (for weaving in ends)
Note: If you are using a different weight yarn and/or hook size, see pattern instructions below for modifications.
- Width-Scarf shown is 6 inches wide.
- Length-Crochet you scarf as long as you want by simply working more rows. I worked my scarf until I ran out of yarn.
(Scarf shown is worked in three rows of each color)Ch 12 loosely
*Note: Chain in multiples of three if you need a different width depending on you yarn weight.
Foundation Row: In the 2nd chain from hook, work one sc. Then work one sc in each ch all the way across.
Row 1: Chain 3 and turn. Make one dc into the first stitch and chain 1. *Skip 2 stitches, then work 3 dc and ch 1 into next stitch. Repeat from * to end of row, but in the very last stitch, only work 2 dc.
Row 2: Chain 3 and turn. Work 3 dc, ch 1 in the first space (in between the 3 dc clusters from the previous row). Then work 3 dc, ch 1 in each space across row. In the last (turning chain) space, work 1 dc.
Row 3: Chain 3 and turn. In the first space, work 1 dc, ch 1. Work 3 dc, ch 1 in each space across row. In the very last (turning chain) space, work 2 dc.
Row 4: Chain 3 and turn. Work 3 dc, ch 1 in each space across row. In the last (turning chain), work 1 dc in that top stitch. (Note: The last dc is worked in the top stitch (loop, not space) this is because if is worked in the space it would “split” the cluster in half. Working it in the stitch instead keeps the cluster intact, the rest of the pattern is worked in the spaces).
Repeat rows 3 and 4 until scarf is desired length.
Weave in all ends and you’re finished!
If you like, make it an infinity scarf by simply seaming the ends with the whip stitch. Click below for a photo tutorial:
