I’ve decided scarves are a great way to stretch a wardrobe. I don’t have a lot of dress up clothes…. hoodies and jeans are my work uniform… so I have been making scarves to dress up my basics.
This scarf can be made in the round or laced together for a fun touch. I used a strip of leather lacing, but you could also use ribbon or something similar.

Yarn: bulky weight in one or two colors for a total of 220 yards
Scarf as written: Loops and Threads Charisma Chocolate Cupcake
Crochet Hooks: K
Miscellaneous: yarn needle, 24” Lacing such as thin leather or cord (optional)
Measurement (measured flat): 32” long x 7” wide
Can be made any length or width.
1. With K hook and bulky weight yarn, fsc 172 (or multiple of 6), sl to join for working in the round. Make sure the chain does not twist. (172sts)
Note: if preferred, start with a regular chain of 172, sl st to join.
2. Ch 2, dc in next st and in each st to end of round, sl st to join.
3. Ch 1, sc in each st to end of round, sl st to join.
4. Ch 2, *fptr around next post from round 2, dc in next st from round 3,* repeat to end of round, sl st to join. (172sts)
5. Do not chain 1. Sc in same st, sc 2, ch 5, *sk 3, sl st 1, ch 5*, repeat to end of round, sl st to join.
At this point decide if you want to make the scarf with an opening to lace closed (as shown in photo). Choose one of the following:
No lacing, worked in the round:
Sl st in first ch 5 space from beginning of the round. *Ch 5, sl st in next sp*, repeat until scarf is desired width.
This option is worked back and forth and then laced together.
1. At end of round, sk 3, sl st next to chain. Ch 3, turn, sl st in first ch 5 space, *ch 5, sl st in next space*,
repeat to end of row. After last sl st, ch 5, sc in last STITCH.
2. Ch 3, turn, sl st in first ch 5 space, *ch 5, sl st in next space*, repeat to end of row. After last sl st, ch 5,
sc in ch 3 space.
Note: the ch 3 spaces create loops for adding the lacing.
3. Repeat step 2 until scarf is desired width.
Finish off and weave in ends.
Cut lacing to 18” long. From the inside of the cowl, pull one end through a space on round 4 (next to a front post bar). Pull the other end of the lacing through the space on the other side of the bar. Thread the lacing in and out of the ch 3 spaces, criss crossing to edge of scarf.
