- One skein of Red Heart Super Saver Stripes Yarn, or at least 236 yards of 4/Medium weight yarn
- H/5.0 MM crochet hook
- Scissors to cut
- Needle to sew in ends
Abbreviations used in pattern:
- ch – chain
- dc – double crochet
- ch sp – chain space
- pfst – puff stitch
- st – stitch
How to do the puff stitch:
- Yarn over and insert hook into stitch
- Grab working yarn and pull up a loop
- Yarn over again and insert hook into same stitch
- Grab working yarn and pull up another loop
- Yarn over and pull through ALL loops on hook
- Chain one to lock in the puff stitch
- ch multiples of 3 +5
- If you are wanting a thicker scarf, chain 23. For a medium thickness, chain 17 or 20. For a skinny scarf, chain 14. The skinnier the scarf is, the longer it will be, and the thicker the scarf is, the shorter it will be, so keep that in mind.
- In 4th ch from hook, [1 dc + ch1 + 1 dc]. Skip 2 ch. In next ch sp, [1 dc + ch1 + 1 dc]. Repeat until only one ch remains. 1 dc in remaining ch.
- Ch3. in middle of v-stitch from previous row (that is the ch1 between the two dc), do [1 pfst + ch 1 + 1 pfst]. Remember that each pfst needs a ch1 to “lock” in the stitch, so between the two pfst you will need that extra ch! Repeat until you have the space remaining between the first v-stitch of previous row and the ch3 (the ch’s skipped from the first row). Dc 1 in that space.
- Ch 3. In middle of v-stitch (the ch1 sp between the 2 pfst), do 1 v-stitch [1 dc + ch1 + 1dc]. Repeat until you come to the sp between the last v-stitch of previous row and the ch3. Dc 1 in that st.
- The pattern will repeat, alternating between dc v-stitch and pfst v-stitch. Do this until desired length, or until you have used the full skein of yarn!
- To tie off once you have finished the last row; ch 1, cut yarn so that there is a bit of yarn still attached to the scarf (we will call this a tail), and sew in the tail. You will also need to go back and sew in the tail on the first end of the scarf!
