I have had this happy little ball of yarn sitting here asking me to crochet with it – for almost 6 months!
I sat down and worked up this quick and easy scarf pattern – it was a pleasure to crochet this – and the yarn is so pretty!
This is a very lightweight scarf – perfect for cool summer evenings and spring and fall wear.
Just be Happy Scarf
Hook: 4.50 mm (7)
Yarn: KnitPicks Chroma Fingering, Prism (1 ball) – the closest color they currently have is Carnival.
Finished width: 5″ (without blocking)
Finished length: 80″ (without blocking)
Gauge is not imperative for this project
It is a repeat of 5 stitches plus 4 for the starting chain.
So if you were to chain 9
Begin 6th ch (skipped 5 equal skipped 2 ch and 1 dc). Work *1 dc, ch 1, 1 dc, ch 1, 1 dc, ch 1, 1 dc** in that 6th ch. Sk 2 ch. Work 1 dc in the last ch.
Hope this helps!
I unravelled approximately 136″ of yarn at the beginning of the ball and cut it from the main ball of yarn. I saved this to use to create the edging for the beginning row because I wanted my colours to match-up. This is just a personal preference for me as I wanted my end edging to be the same colour as the first row of the scarf.
R1: chain 29
R2: 1 dc in the 6th ch from the hook (Note: the skipped 5 chs count as the 1st dc of the row and 2 skipped chs). Crochet the following in the same ch: (ch 1, dc) 3 times;
*skip the next 4 chs, 1 dc in the next ch, (ch 1, 1 dc in the same ch) 3 times*
repeat from * to * across to the last 3 chs of the row. Skip the next 2 chs, 1 dc in the last ch.
R3: ch 3 (Note: this ch 3 counts as the 1st dc of the row, now and throughout) and turn. Skip the next ch-1 sp, 1 dc in the next ch-1 sp (ch 1, 1 dc in the same sp) 3 times;
*skip the next 2 ch-1 sps, 1 dc in the next ch-1 sp, (ch 1, 1 dc in the same sp) 3 times*
repeat from * to * across to the last ch-1 sp, skip the last ch-1 sp and the next dc, 1 dc in the last dc of the row.
Repeat R3 until your scarf is the desired length. I used almost the entire ball of yarn and my finished scarf measured 80″.
Once your scarf is as long as you want it. Cut the yarn and weave in the ends.
This edging was only added at R1 of the scarf (the flat starting chain end).
Tutorial: Join with a Slip Stitch
Join edging yarn with a sl st, ch 3
You will be working into the same ch-1 spaces as you worked in R1 (like a mirror image):
*1 dc in the same ch-1 sp as you worked in R1 (ch 1, 1 dc in the same sp) 3 times*; repeat across in each ch-1 space you worked in R1.
1 dc in the last st of the row.
Finish off and weave in any loose ends.
