My 2021 Whatever Will Be Will Be Scarf Pattern is my February Scarf of the Month CAL contribution. Get it for free in the post below.
This month’s scarf name is actually part of my current personal mantra – a phrase that I repeat to myself each time I start to fixate on things I cannot control.
Whatever will be, will beWritten by the team of Jay Livingston and Ray Evans, 1956.
The future’s not ours to see
Que sera, sera
What will be, will be…
In truth, there seems to be a lot of things that I cannot control right now so this mantra and my daily break (which is often bitterly cold and uncomfortable) outside are proving to be very beneficial to me.
I’m sure you are all wondering how making myself sit outside in the bitter cold can help my mental state of mind – well LOL I sure can’t concentrate on anything else when all I can think about is how darn COLD I am! So, my cold discomfort works to bring my focus (which is almost always internally focused) to the here-and-now freezing cold present! Then when I go back inside my mind is clear and the thoughts that had been building up are at a more manageable level again.
Wishing you warmth and sunlight. Stay strong my friends. xo Rhondda

You can substitute any yarn and hook for this stitch pattern – just remember when you substitute if your gauge is different, the finished size, and amount of yarn used for your project will also be different.
ch2sp – chain 2 space
R – row
RS – right side
rem – remaining
rep – repeat
sk – skip
st/sts – stitch/stitches
WS – wrong side (back of project)
* to **– Repeat the instructions between the asterisks the number of times indicated. This repeat will contain multiple instructions.
 – at the end of the row – the total number of stitches
() – important notes AND sets of stitches to be worked within one stitch, or space
- Stitch multiple is 3+2 (Understanding Stitch Multiples)
- If you would like a longer scarf, simply repeat R2 to your desired length before adding the single crochet edging.
When I work into the foundation chain, I prefer working into the back bar (back bump) of the chain. You can work under the back loop only if you prefer.
When I worked the single crochet edging at the base of the foundation chain, instead of simply working 2 sc in the ch2sp I worked my second single crochet by catching 1 loop from the leg of the first dc and then working into the ch2sp. I did this to decrease the open space created between the foundation row and edging Row 1.
When I join my yarn to work the edging for the foundation row I use a standing stitch. You can use a slip stitch to join, chain one and then begin the instructions for the edging if you prefer.
