Okay, so I came up with one new pattern for the season to share with you! I was buying a gift for a family member and walked past a window display with a mannequin wearing a velvet knit scarf with fringe and … I had to rush home, grab my Velvet yarn and get to hooking. Don’t you love it when the inspiration hits like that!? The color I grabbed that was closest to the window display scarf was Bernat Baby Velvet in Bunny Brown The Baby Velvet works up a bit looser than the standard Bernat Velvet but they both work, as you can see.
In the plum color, I totally skipped my beginning chain and just kept going. I picked up the pattern as best I could and … you can’t really tell. Of course a trained eye could totally call me out, but it still turned out beautifully! So this pattern is forgiveable as well!
This really does work up quickly and is so stylish and warm, it would make a fabulous gift for a fashionista in your family! Enjoy…
1 Skein Bernat Baby Velvet Yarn (Bernat Velvet works as well)
1 Size L (11.00 mm) Crochet Hook
Yarn Needle for sewing in ends
Ch 165, check the length of your chain to make sure you have a long enough piece to wrap 2 times around your neck with room, leaving 3 layers.
Join to form a circle (pattern worked in the round) Be careful not to twist your chain.
Row 1: Ch 2, DC in each stitch around, sl st to beginning dc
Keep your stitches loose so the scarf with drape nicely
Row 2: Ch 3, TC in each DC from previous round
Row 3: Ch 2, DC in back loop of each TC from previous round
Row 4: Ch 2, DC in back loop only of each DC from previous round
Row 5: Repeat Row 2
Row 6: Repeat Row 3:
Row 7: Repeat Row 4
Row 8: Repeat Row 2
Row 9: Repeat Row 3
Row 10: Repeat Row 4
Sew in beginning tail of yarn and tie off
Cut yarn and pull through, leaving a 6″ – 7″ tail, pull tight to finish
Cut pieces of yarn 12″ or so (how many depends on how you space your fringe, I cut as I go)
Beginning with last stitch where yarn tail is, using 2 strands of yarn, loop through stitch and pull through, making a fringe. Twist ends and tie in a knot at desired length of fringe.
Count 5-6 stitches or so and attach another two strands, attaching in a knot
Repeat around until your fringe is all attached and tied, trim ends if desired
To get the below affect, switch yarn colors on last row and use that color to make your fringe!
Scarf can be worn several ways, I’m sure. Shown here is the double wrap, 3 layer infinity style.
