Emily's Scarf - Free Pattern

 
I had the idea for this scarf several months back when I first designed the Spring scarf. However, with other patterns having priority, this design hit the back burner. I received an email from Emily, who kindly thanked me for my efforts. She explained that she was once a victim and that these scarves really do help. I offered to make a scarf in her honor, and she requested the Spring scarf. I felt I could do more. I pulled out my idea and finally wrote it out for Emily. That is where it gets the name. I hope that you will love this pattern and make one to send to the Handmade Especially organization. There is too much abuse; there is a need for an outpouring of love, and it can be from you.
 

Materials:
Size K crochet hook
Soft yarn (medium weight)
Sewing needle
 
Gauge:
Initial chain should measure about 2-2.5"
Pattern:

Ch 9
Row 1: (3dc, ch 2, 3dc) in 6th ch from hook, dc in last ch, turn
Row 2: Ch 3, (3dc, ch 2, 3dc) in ch-2 sp of previous row, dc in the third ch of the ch-3 of the previous row. Turn
Repeat row 2 until project is the desired length (about 60 inches), ending with an odd number of motifs (squares, diamonds, shells, whatever you call them!) so the edging is even.
Final row: ch 6, sc in ch-2 sp, ch 6, sl st to first sc.

Edging:
Round 1: Ch 1 and sc in same stitch. Working along the side, 2 sc in each dc sp, 1 sc in the top of each dc. In the corner chain space: sc 2, ch 2, sc 2. Sc once in the space between the motifs, repeat corner chain space, and continue working along opposite side as described. After the last corner, sl st with first sc.
Round 2:  *sk 2 ch, 5 dc in next ch, sk 2 ch, sc in next ch, repeat from * until you reach the corners, then: 8 dc in the ch-2 sp, sc in the sc, 8 dc in the ch-2 sp of adjacent corner, and repeat entire row again. Fasten off by attaching to first dc of the first shell.


Please let me know if you find any problems as this pattern has not been proofed.

  1. Beautiful pattern - made it in one evening and love it ! I did find that on the very last round of edging, the pattern repeat missed the sc between the 5dc. The Edging Round 2 should read, " *sk 2 ch, 5 dc in next ch, sk 2 ch, sc in next ch, repeat from* until you reach the corners..... ". I hope that helps. Thank you again for the lovely pattern.

  2. You say at the end of row 2 "dc in third ch of the ch-3 of the previous row. Turn." But there is no ch-3 in row 1 to dc in... So am I reading this wrong? The only ch 3 is at the beginning of row 2 which is the opposite of where I am at currently.
    It really is beautiful and I am hoping I can figure it out to donate defore Christmas.

    1. It's referring to the very first ch-3, or the turning chain of the previous row. The 6 chains skipped from the previous row count as a ch-3 sp and a 3-ch turn (or dc). You want to dc in the top of that turning chain or dc.

    2. Prefect! Thanks for the reply! I will attempt now. Can you tell I'm newer at this? I have caught on quickly, but not sure on how things equal other things (like what you said about the 6chains skipped equal a ch3 sp and ch3 turn). I'm sure I'll pick it up soon enough. Thank you again!

  4. This is such a beautiful scarf. I have to admit it looks intimidating. Would anyone give this a crocket skill rating. Like Beginner, easy, intermediate, advanced, expert? Thank you so much for offering your beautifull patterns. I made your go to skinny scarf (I think that is the name) I'm going to make another one with a size 10 thread and see how it comes out . I give them to people who have cancer and to missionaries. But, I would really love to make them for the charity you do. I'm hoping there is a chapter near me. SOUTHERN ohio? God Bless you!
