Happy May! I’m so excited you’ve decided to participate in the Scarf of the Month Club this month! We have 3 brand-new free crochet patterns for you to try.  I have included instructions to help you share your projects online at the end of this post.  I’ve also linked to a tutorial I created to show you how to add your own project pages to Ravelry! We truly love it when you share your projects on Ravelry, so if you have time, please make a project page.

This month my contribution to our Scarf Club is the Ocean Breeze Scarf. The Ocean Breeze Scarf is crocheted with 1 ball of Red Heart Super Saver Ombre yarn (10 oz/283 g; 482 yds/440 m) and a 6.0 mm (J) Tambooti Furls Crochet Hook. You can read my Crochet Yarn Review HERE. Red Heart sent me free samples of the Red Heart Super Saver Ombre to try and I really love it – both the smooth color transitions and the beautiful sheen of the yarn. The yarn is not scratchy, it does not pile and it holds its stitch definition perfectly. You can substitute any Red Heart Super Saver yarn for the yarn I used in this pattern. You can easily make this scarf as large, or as small as you’d like. If you do not want the tassels you can easily omit them as well! The finished scarf is very long but lightweight. The Ocean Breeze Scarf is easy to make and easy to wear. Have fun crocheting this one! The free pattern is available below the links to Amy and Joanita’s Scarves. Rhondda

Notes

  • This project is worked in rows.
  • I include the instructions for the chain 3 at the beginning of the row for which the chain 3 counts as a stitch; rather than on the row prior after the instruction to Turn. This will make it easier to keep count of your stitches.
  • The ch 3 at the beginning of each row counts as 1 double crochet.
  • I use a Magic Ring to begin my project to make the corner edge resemble a triangle shape. If you prefer you can alternately work this: R1: Ch 5, beg in the 4th ch and work 1 dc in each rem ch across. The skipped ch 3 counts as your first dc. [3 dc]
  • For the increase rows we will be working 2 stitches (the chain 3 and 1 dc) in the first st of each row.
  • For the decrease rows we will be skipping the final st of the row (the chain 3 you crocheted at the beginning of the previous row).

Tassels - Ocean Breeze Scarf | Free Pattern | Oombawka Design

Tassels

Make 2

Find, or make a item 4.5 inches wide (you can use cardboard, or cardstock – I used a thin book – Drew and I were reading together and learning the “sh” and yes I believe phonics is the best way to teach children how to read).

Step 1: Wrap your yarn around the item 50 times. Cut the end at the bottom edge. Cut a second piece of yarn about 10 inches long and tie it securely (I double knotted mine) around the top edge of the yarn strands. Cut the bottom edge of all the yarn strands.

Tassel Step 1 Oombawka Design

Step 2: Take your yarn end from the yarn ball and tie it approximately 1 to 1.5 inches from the top tie in Step 1.

Tassel Step 2 | Oombawka Design

Step 3: Wrap your yarn 10 times around the spot you tied before cutting the yarn and threading it behind the wraps (into the center of the tassel). Bring it back to the outer edge and tie it to the end you threaded behind the wraps of yarn. Then thread it back behind the wraps again to hide it within the tassel. Trim the ends to make them even.

Tassel complete Oombawka Design

Assembly

Take your tie (both strands) from Step 1 and thread it on your yarn needle. Using a simple stitch (like a whipstitch) join it to the end of your scarf. I whipstitched 4 times across the final row of the scarf to make it look like it continued from the scarf and then weaved in the ends and threaded the remainder straight down the center of the tassel and out the bottom.

  3. Hi Shantanice, Yes! Thank you for catching that typo! It was supposed to be 21 not 11. All the best, Rhondda

  4. Hi Mary, Yikes! Thank you for noticing that – I updated it to 20, 21, 22 I must have been hitting the 1 by accident for those three. Have a lovely weekend, Rhondda

  5. Oopsy! The row count is off starting at row 20. I’m using Lion Brand Mandala yarn and an H hook. I will probably keep increasing to the pattern width. I looked at at least 100 other patterns before this one and I’m really happy with my choice. Thank you so much for sharing!

  6. I hope you enjoy the pattern 🙂 If you do have questions, please message me and I can try to help! All the best, Rhondda

  7. Thank you for providing this pattern! I am new to crocheting. I am going to work on this today!
