I really enjoy working with the crochet granny stripe stitch. It is easy to catch on to, and is a very versatile stitch. I decided to use it to make this crochet scarf pattern, for a couple of reasons. First, I love the color effect when alternating color rows. Second, it is a warm stitch, and perfect for a scarf.
This granny stripes scarf has an extra bonus. Because I used a larger (size K) crochet hook, it works up pretty quickly. This is nice if you are in quick need of a warm accessory to your new outfit, or plan on making a few as gifts or for charity.
I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
Granny Stripes Scarf
Size K Crochet Hook
2 (or more) colors of worsted weight yarn. I used Red Heart Super Saver in Hot Red (color A) and
Blue Suede (color B).
*You will alternate colors for each row. When changing colors, leave a long end to be blended in with the fringe.
With Color A, ch 177.
Row 1: Dc in 4th ch from hook, [skip 2 ch, work 3 dc in next ch] across, work 2 dc in the last ch. Turn.
Switch to Color B.
Row 2: Ch 3, 3 dc in first space (between the clusters of the previous row). Work 3 dc in each space across, 1 dc in the top stitch of the ch 3 of the previous row. Turn
Switch to Color A.
Row 3: Sl st to first space, ch 3, dc in same space, work 3 dc in each space across, work 2 dc in the last space. Turn.
Rows 4-11: Repeat rows 2 and 3, alternating each.
Cut equal-sized pieces of yarn, approximately 10 inches long. Working with two strands at a time, fold the strands in half and pull the loop through an end stitch of the scarf, then pull the ends of the fringe tightly through the loop. Repeat as desired. Trim fringe so that it is even.
