Snowy Hills Scarfie – Free Pattern
A few weeks ago I read about the #scarfie Challenge from Lion Brand Yarns – if you haven’t read about it yet, here is the link to their post:
Lion Brand Wants to See Your Best #Scarfie
I decided to participate – and to design a quick and easy pattern for you to use if you would like to make a scarf too!
This design is super simple. It takes 2-balls of Lion Brand Yarns Thick & Quick Yarn.
The yarn colour I chose is very unique.
It has many lovely strands of metallic colour running through the white.
I loved working with the yarn and I enjoy wearing the scarf.
The scarf is extremely soft and squishy!
This scarf can be worn in many ways – it is very long – easy to wrap and snuggle into on the colder weather days – which we are expecting very soon!
Here is the super easy free pattern!
Yarn: Lion Brand Yarns Thick & Quick Yarn (2 balls)
Hook: 9.00 mm (US M13)
Gauge: is not important
- the chain 1 does not count as a stitch in the row-end totals
- you will be working in the back loop of the stitches for this project
- For extra Photo Support please see this post: Snowy Hills Scarfie With Extra Photo Support
Stitch Pattern Multiple: chain a multiple of 9, plus 1 for the starting chain
Abbreviations: R – row, ch – chain, blsc – back loop single crochet stitch (i.e. single crochet in the back loop only of the stitch indicated), st – stitch, sts – stitches, repeat the instructions between * and ** the number of times indicated
R1: Chain 136, begin in the 2nd ch from the hook; *1 blsc in each of the next 4 sts, 3 blsc in the next st, 1 blsc in each of the next 4 sts**. Rep from * to ** 15 times, ch 1, turn. 
R2: *Skip the 1st st, 1 blsc in each of the next 4 sts, 3 blsc in the next st, 1 blsc in each of the next 4 sts, skip the next st**. Rep from * to ** 15 times, ch 1, turn. 
R3 – R7: repeat R2, finish off and weave in ends.
Hi Kara 🙂 Keep going to the end of Row 2 🙂 It will shape up properly! Videos for my site will be coming this year 🙂 Had a minor setback as I have bronchitis and no ‘voice’ this month!
Hi Julie 🙂 It takes the correct shape after you finish Row 2 🙂 Keep going! The first row can be a bit misleading because of how it looks – it takes the proper v shapes soon!
YES, ME TOO!!! i started today and had to put it down cuz i was getting frustrated. ive just started crocheting in nov. i do better with videos than patterns…just a suggestion 🙂
New to crocheting so please bear with me! What part of the pattern creates the upward part of the zigzag? I started row 1 with the pattern (4sc, 3sc, 4 sc) when I repeat that, it starts to create a triangle. Help!
Hi Mary 🙂 I’m so happy it is working for you and 2 strands of WW is a great idea – it opens up a lot more options for color too!! Thanks so much 🙂 Talk soon, Rhondda
Hi Rhondda, I just wanted to let you know that I did a test/sample of this pattern using a starting chain of 28 (multiple of 9 +1) and it worked out great. I am using the pattern to make scarves for homeless vet. My husband is a member of the VVA and I will be able to give them away through that organization. I needed another pattern that was quick to work up and this one fills that need perfectly. The only change I am making the tye type of yarn. Since I have an over abundance of left over yarn, I am using two strands of worsted weight yarn. That also gives me the option of using coordinating colors to give some interest. I will try to remember to take some pics and forward them to you once they are done. Thanks for the great pattern!
Hi Mary, I double checked and it is correct as written above. After R2 it will make sense 🙂 R1 does not skip stitches but from the second row onward it will 🙂 Let me know how it turns out for you!
All the best,
I just came across this pattern today and am anxious to make it. As usual, I was reading through the directions when I first saw it to get a picture in my mind’s eye. Is there something missing from the instructions for row 1? It seems that if I do a blsc in 4 sts, then 3 blsc in the next, then 1 blsc in each of the next 4 sts and then start the repeat, it will be 15 “peaks” with straight lines (no valleys) in between. I notice on the 2nd row there is a “skip next stitch” before starting the repeats. Should that not also appear in the instructions for row 1? Like I said, I haven’t actually started making this yet, just trying to picture it. Thanks!
Thank you Stephanie 🙂
Hi Tanya, Thank you 🙂 I’m happy you like the scarf! Rhondda
Thank you Trish!
Thank you Michelle 🙂
Thank you Aneta 🙂 It works up very quickly too!
I love long, skinny scarves and this one is especially cute. 🙂
Love the look of this scarf.
I think this snowie hills scarfie is my favourite so far. It will probably change as I try more patterns. Thank you it is lovely
Beautiful pattern! Nice idea 🙂
Hi Debbie, The scarf is quite long…Length: 84″ Width: 4.5″…but the increases are offset by the decreases in each row so it should not be growing in length with each subsequent row. It should be staying the same length.
If you want it to be shorter you can make it shorter by decreasing the number of starting chains. The ripple works on a repeat of: Stitch Pattern Multiples: chain a multiple of 9, plus 1 for the starting chain
Hope this helps,
It funny I bought the same exact yard …before I realized that you used the metallic thread . My problem is I keep increasing every row and it’s looking like a very long lacy scarf . I guess I need to count .I am getting good ready to pull it out and start all over after doing 4 rows. Do you have any tips to keep everyone on task? I am a long time crocheted so probably should be answering my own question! Help!
Hi Cindy 🙂 I’m happy to hear it is working!! Thank you for letting me know 🙂 Rhondda
I did not skip the stitch. It certainly makes all the difference to follow the pattern as it is written. Thank you for your reply. It is working now.
Hi Cindy, I’m wondering if you are forgetting to skip the 1st stitch each time in the repeat sequence and the last stitch in the repeat sequence? I just used my pattern to make a coffee cup cozy and it seems to be working properly…Let me know if it is the skipped stitches that are causing the discrepancy please 🙂 Thanks! Rhondda
R2: (skip the 1st st, 1 blsc in each of the next 4 sts, 3 blsc in the next st, 1 blsc in each of the next 4 sts, skip the next st) 15 times, ch 1, turn
This is a beautiful piece. However, on rows 2-7 when I follow your pattern, I find that the 4 blsc in 4 st followed by the 3 blsc in 1 st does not line the ripple up as your photo shows. To achieve the same look as yours I worked blsc until I got to the 2nd blsc of the “ripple shell”, worked 6 blsc in the next 6 blsc and 3 blsc in the next st.
Am I misreading your pattern? Your help would be appreciated.
Yes, this helps so much – thank you!
Hi Ericka 🙂 You repeat everything written in parenthesis the number of times indicated after the ending parenthesis. So the repeat for R1 is (1 blsc in each of the next 4 sts, 3 blsc in the next st, 1 blsc in each of the next 4 sts) and you repeat all of that 15 times. Hope this helps! Rhondda
Hello, I’m stuck 🙂 I just finished my foundation chain and starting R1. I did the 1 blsc in each of the next 4 sets, 3 blsc in next, 1 blsc in each of the next 4 sts. My question now is do I do 1 blsc in each of the next 4 stitches – this would put 8 blsc between ‘peaks’…. I think I;m confused as to what is in parenthesis for the repeat. Is the repeat 3 blsc, 1 blsc in each of the next 4, then 3 blsc? Hope this makes sense….Thanks in advance 🙂
Hi Beverly, You can use the printfriendly button in my post 🙂 Here’s a link to a tutorial about how to print my patterns: https://oombawkadesigncrochet.com/how-do-i-print-your-free-patterns/
I would like to make the scarf. My church is making them for the homeless. How do I print just the pattern.
