Stitch Anatomy


  • To make the colors repeat as I did I made sure my first chain stitch was at the very beginning of a new color section (grey) in the yarn. I left a 2.25″ tail in the color before my first chain stitch (for me this was the teal/green).
  • If you are doing this with multiple balls of yarn – I worked the equivalent of 2 rows of each color.
  • Do not count the starting or ending ch 3 as a stitch in the row-end counts.
  • Stitch Multiple of 5 + 1

R3-R122: Rep R2

R123: 1 sc in first dc *ch 3, 1 sc in ch1sp between next 2 petals**. Rep from * to ** 3 times working 1 petal in each ch1sp across. Ch 2, sk next dc, 1 sc in top of turning ch. Ch 1 and finish off leaving a 2.25″ tail.


Using all my remaining yarn, I cut 4″ lengths of yarn for the fringe. Be sure to work from the same side while adding your fringe so the edge remains consistent. I had enough leftover to add a fringe to each stitch and ch on both ends of the scarf. I alternated colors to continue with the rainbow effect of the scarf.

The technique to add the fringe is very simple – if you need a visual to help you can view my fringe images from this post: Gently Reminisce Wrap or this post: How to Add a Simple Fringe

Once you have all your pieces attached, trim your fringe to 2 inches on both ends of the scarf and you are done!

  1. Hi Rachel 🙂 The link seems to be working now – I think perhaps her post went ‘live’ online a little bit later than mine did but it is there now 🙂

    Have a great night! and thank you 🙂

  2. Love the scarf! I try to get the Mystic Waves scarf, too, but the link takes me to a ladybug square pattern?
