FINISHED PROJECT: Crochet Chevron Scarf


I made a long yummy scarf! All I wanted all winter long was a long long scarf that I could wrap around twice and still have hang way past my waist. Well, I did it, and it is May. So.. whatever. Do you love it?

I used this free crochet chevron pattern by the famous Lucy of Attic24 - the ripple pattern is for an afghan, but I modified it to be for a scarf! I didn't even do a full W of the chevron as she shows in her example - just a V! I didn't want it to be too thick, otherwise it would not be comfortable to wear double-wrapped around my neck.

I used all Red Heart Super Saver yarn for this guy in Aran, Turquoise, aaand a dark grey, lost the wrap, whoops! Plus an I-hook. It really only took me two, maybe three decent sittings. The worst was having to weave in each end..


Here is before I added the fringe - I am glad I did! It took maybe six or seven minutes, and it added another good chunk of length to either side. I also like it because the starting end of the scarf was a V shape, while the last stripe ended with a ^ shape -- the fringe equaled that out!

  1. It's so awesome! And the fringe looks great on it. I'm definitely going to give that pattern a try now too. n.n

  4. Hi, I'm just a beginner and I'm trying to make this scarf (because it's the one my daughter picker, of course)! I'm having trouble with it because I'm not advanced enough to alter Lucy's blanket pattern into the scarf you made. Mostly, I'm having trouble converting the "W" to a "V" only, and that's what I like about your scarf because it's skinny. Do you, by chance, have your pattern written out? It would be extremely helpful!
