Staggered Paired Half Double Crochet (sp-hdc)
- This stitch is worked in the ch-sps only. We skip every hdc2tog.
- We work the sp-hdc across 2 chain spaces.
- The sp-hdc is created by working the first leg of the hdc2tog st in the first ch-sp and the second leg of the hdc2tog in the next ch-sp.
- Each subsequent sp-hdc begins in the same ch-sp as the second leg of the previous sp-hdc.
Beg sp-hdc: hdc2tog over the first and second ch-sp.
sp-hdc: beg in the last ch-sp worked, hdc2tog over it and the next ch-sp

- Stitch multiple: 2 + 1
- When I work into the foundation chain, I prefer working into the back bar (back bump) of the chain. 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 2, then add 1 more chain. Then follow the instructions below.
- To increase the width of your scarf, work more rows.
- The initial ch-2 counts as 1 hdc. This means we do not work into the stitch directly beneath it (because the ch-2 counts as that first st).
- Add this pattern to your Ravelry library here.
- Read the Special Stitches section.
Warm Wishes Scarf Pattern
This project is crocheted lengthwise in rows.
Please refer to Special Stitches above for important notes, before you begin.
Using your 5.5 mm (I) hook (or size required for gauge):
R1: (RS): Ch 299, sk 2 chs (counts as 1 hdc). *Hdc2tog over the next 2 chs, ch 1**. Work from * to ** across to the last ch. 1 hdc in the last ch, turn. [2 hdc, 148 hdc2tog, 148 ch1sp]
R2-R13: Ch 2 (counts as 1 hdc), beg sp-hdc2tog (see special stitches). *Ch 1, sp-hdc2tog**. Work from * to ** across to the last st. Ch 1, 1 hdc in the last st, turn. [2 hdc, 148 hdc2tog, 148 ch1sp]
Proceed to finishing instructions.
- Finish off. Weave in ends.
Optional Fringe: Cut 84-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 (14 spots on each side edge). Need help with the fringe? This post shows you how to attach it.
