The other day I sat down and crocheted a scarf. I made it us as I want using some basic stitches I know. My intention for the scarf is to give it away; it wasn’t until I was fastening off the tail at the end that I realized it would be a great project to share here. So, with a little reverse engineering I have written my first ever crochet pattern. This is a big achievement for me – I only taught myself to read patterns about three months ago.
A not to my fellow crocheters: if this pattern doesn’t make sense, please reach out so that I can fix any mistakes.
Sea Waves Scarf Pattern
I used a 6.50mm hook, but honestly this would work with your choice of any 6-10mm hook.
For this I used Premier Puzzle brand yarn in the color “Enigma”.
Disclaimer: I did not count my rows because I was not thinking of writing this pattern down or sharing it, so repeat R2 until you think your scarf is as long as you want it to be.
Ch – Chain
R – Row
Sc – Single Crochet
HDC – Half Double Crochet
* * – repeat instructions between parentheses
MIDDLE OF THE SCARF-
