The Wander Around Scarf is my June Scarf of the Month Crochet Along Pattern. This colorful striped scarf features a simple one row repeat worked in the double crochet stitch.
To make my Wander Around Scarf you will need Medium Weight Yarn  (also known as Worsted Weight Yarn ) and a 5 mm (H) crochet hook.

A couple months ago, Furls sent me samples of their new Wander Yarn colors to play with. To be honest when I received them I was not sure I’d ever use them because I don’t usually use colors this vibrant when I crochet. I tend to stick to more neutral tones for family and friends and for designing; unless my kids want something and pick their own colors.
Anyway, when I was organizing my yarn and putting it in my under-the-bed-storage bins (to keep it clean and tidy), I popped these bright colors in and they landed beside a black (Obsidian) skein of Wander yarn.
I had an “A-HA!” moment and put in a request for some extra Obsidian yarn skeins and my Wander Around Casual Striped Scarf pattern was born.
Wander yarn has a gorgeous sheen to it. I’m not sure if you can see it in the photos, but there is an almost opalescence to the Festival and Orchid colors; the yarn almost ‘glows’. It is super soft and easy to work with and I feel it is very reasonably priced.
Wander yarn is 100% acrylic and each 100 g (3.5 oz) skein contains 120 yards (109 meters) of yarn. For my scarf I used two skeins of Obsidian, 1 skein of Festival and 1 skein of Orchid. For my scarf (including the fringe) I used a combined total of 285 grams of yarn.
The yarn was uniform in thickness from start to finish. This allowed me to keep my gauge (tension) consistent. Wander yarn 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.

- Stitch multiple: 1
- You can make this project as long or short as you wish by working Fdc to reach your desired scarf length. Then follow the instructions below.
- To increase the width of your scarf, work more rows.
- The initial ch-3 counts as 1 dc. This means you do not need to work a double crochet in the first st (the ch-3 is counting as that first stitch of the row).
- Change colors on the last yarn-over of the last double crochet of each row.
- I finished off my color at the end of each row.
- You can substitute the Fdc for: Ch 231 , sk 3 chs (counts as 1 dc), 1 dc in each rem ch across.
- If you are substituting the Fdc, you can change the scarf length by chaining until you reach your desired scarf length, then add 2 additional chs before using the substitution provided above.

- Finish off.
- Weave ends into the same color rows.
- Cut 70-strands of Color A yarn, 30-strands of Color B yarn and 30-strands of Color C yarn; each 12-inches in length. 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 5-strands of matching yarn to each row end, on each side of the scarf.
- Need help with the fringe? This post shows you how to attach it.
