Going Granny Scarf Pattern

The Going Granny Scarf is my May Scarf of the Month Crochet Along Pattern. This pretty scarf features a simple one row repeat worked in the granny stripe crochet stitch pattern.

To make my Going Granny Scarf you will need Light Weight Yarn [3] (also known as DK Weight Yarn ) and a 4 mm (G) crochet hook.

Pop by next week to get my Going Granny Hat pattern, which also uses a granny stripe stitch pattern.

Disclaimer: The yarn used to create this project was given to me by King Cole.

King Cole yarn is available from your local yarn shop, or online at the links in my post below.

Harvest DK Yarn

When I first started as an King Cole Ambassador, I was sent a Welcome Package with many different yarns to try from King Cole. I’ve been slowly working through these over the past months. Harvest DK is one of the yarns I received and I wish I’d tried it sooner. It is 3-fold (this means 3 strands of yarn are twisted together; also known as 3-ply) yarn, that is dyed using long repeating color stripes.

The color I used is called Morning Sky (Shade: 5204) and it is dyed with shades of blue and white and the blues each include white within their 3-fold. I love the effect and the finished scarf looks very pretty using this yarn.

Harvest DK yarn contains 90% Acrylic and 10% Alpaca. It is packaged in a 150 g Cake (so you can see all the pretty colors included). Each cake includes 535 meters (585 yards) of yarn. For my scarf I used one cake of Harvest DK. It makes a lovely scarf, with enough length to wrap comfortably.

The yarn is very soft to touch and crochets beautifully. There were no ties or knots in my cake of yarn, leaving me with 2 ends to weave in at completion of my project. Harvest DK was an excellent option to use for this scarf because it showcases the pretty colors and makes the granny stripe stitch easy to accomplish without needing to make color changes every row.

The yarn was consistent in thickness from start to finish, allowing me to keep my gauge (tension) consistent. It will work well for projects that require a specific gauge (like hats and garments). This yarn will also make a lovely wrap, blanket or shawl for those who want to be snuggled up in something cozy.

You can see all the pretty shades available here.

You can see them in this video from Joanne and Susan from King Cole Yarns here too. The cakes are a really generous size. I’m afraid I got so excited I used mine before thinking to take a photo with something for perspective! So take a quick peek here to see them in perspective:

Helpful Tutorials

Notes:

  • Stitch multiple: 3 + 1
  • 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 3, then add 4 more chains. Then follow the instructions below. 
  • To increase the width of your scarf, work more rows.
  • The initial ch-3 counts as 1 dc.
  • If you are making color changes for your Going Granny Scarf, change your yarn color on the last yarn over of the final double crochet of every row to create your granny stripe.

Going Granny Scarf Pattern

This project is crocheted lengthwise in rows.

Using your 4 mm (G) hook (or size required for gauge):

R1: (RS): Ch 296, 2 dc in the fourth ch from the hook (the sk 3 chs counts as 1 dc), sk the next 2 chs. *3 dc in the next ch, sk the next 2 chs**. Work from * to ** across to the last ch. 1 dc in the last ch. Turn. [295 dc]

R2-R17: Ch 3 (counts as 1 dc), 2 dc in the sp bef the next dc. *Sk the next 3 dc, 3 dc in the sp bef the next dc**. Work from * to ** across to the last 3 dc. Sk the next 2 dc, 1 dc in the last dc. Turn. [295 dc]

Proceed to finishing instructions.

Finishing Instructions:

  • Finish off.
  • Weave in ends.
  • Optional Fringe: Cut 102-strands of yarn, each 12-inches in length. You can use the same yarn color, or a different yarn color for this. I used my Clover Tassel Maker Tool to do this but you can do it by wrapping around a piece of cardboard or free-hand cutting. Tie 3 strands to each row end, on each side (17 spots on each side edge). For a thicker fringe tie 4 strands to each row end (you will need 34 extra strands of yarn). Need help with the fringe? This post shows you how to attach it.
