The Between Seasons Scarf is my September Scarf of the Month Crochet Along Pattern. This very easy to crochet scarf features small arches worked between rows of double crochet stitches.
The simple two row repeat uses only double crochets (dc) and chain stitches (ch).
Try this scarf if you are a beginner! I think you will love it.
If you are not comfortable making foundation double crochet stitches (that’s ok!) I have included instructions for an Alternate Row 1 using a foundation chain instead.
To make my Between Seasons Scarf you will need Aran Weight Yarn  (also known as Medium Weight Yarn ) and a 5 mm (H) crochet hook.
Visit me next week to get my matching Between Seasons Hat pattern which matches the scarf perfectly.

Drifter Aran Yarn Review
If you have been following along with my site these last few years, you will already know that I love the Drifter range of yarns available from King Cole. The Drifter range comes in different yarn weights, including Chunky, Aran (which I used for this scarf), DK (and DK for baby) and 4ply.
The yarn has a lovely selection of variegated colors to choose from and even a Subtle Drifter line that works up into a more solid color (with just a hint of a lighter tone throughout).
Drifter Aran yarn contains 79% Premium Acrylic,17% Cotton and 4% wool. It is packaged in a 100 g skein. Each skein includes 200 meters (218 yards) of yarn. For my scarf I used two skeins of Drifter Aran yarn in the color Blue Ridge (Shade: 4182).
If you knit, the Drifter yarns produce a beautiful striped fair isle effect. I think maybe if I try this yarn with smaller, shorter stitches the Fair Isle look would be more evident. I love the colors in this skein and the blues and greens remind me of the ocean.
I love working with Drifter Aran yarn. It is soft and beautifully colored. It flows easily across my hook and can be worked straight from the skein (I didn’t need to wind it first).
If you want to try one of the King Cole yarn lines I definitely recommend working with the Drifter Yarn Range. I have some Chunky here now that I plan on using for a Winter Hat/Scarf set so stay tuned!

- I used a Foundation Double Crochet row instead of a foundation chain. You may substitute a foundation chain if you prefer. Please see ‘Alternate Row 1 Instructions’ to begin using a foundation chain instead.
- To change the scarf length, work your foundation double crochet stitches (Fdc) until you reach your desired scarf length and make sure you have a number of Fdc stitches you can divide evenly by 4, then add 2 additional Fdc stitch. Then proceed to R2.
- To increase the width of your scarf, work more rows.
- The initial ch-3 counts as 1 dc.
- Alternate Row 1 Instructions:
- Alternate R1: RS: Ch 260, 1 dc in the fourth ch from the hook (the sk 3 chs counts as 1 dc) and in each rem ch across. Turn. [258 dc] proceed to R2 of the Elegant Crochet Scarf Pattern
- When I work into the foundation chain, I prefer working into the back bar (back bump) of the chain. This gives the edge a more finished look and is visually the same as the top of the stitches from the final row you will be working for the scarf. You can work under the back loop only if you prefer.
- To change the scarf length, chain until you reach your desired scarf length and make sure you have a number of chains you can divide equally by 4. Then follow the ‘alternate R1 instructions’ above.
