Claudia Scarf

As the summer is ever so slowly winding down, I have really been enjoying sitting and crocheting in the evenings. I’ve been working on this scarf for a little bit and I love how it turned out. After Dawn had completed a couple of these gorgeous scarves, I knew I had to jump in and try some as well. This first one is for the kid’s swimming teacher. I have no idea what her personal tastes are as far as clothing as I only ever see her in a bathing suit and cap, but she has dark hair and I think it will go well with her complexion. It’s a pretty bold colour, so I hope that she likes it. Everybody could use one bright, bold scarf, right? I really loved this pattern, the repeats are super easy to remember which made it perfect for picking up and putting it down, a definite must with four kids and plenty more interruptions. I promise, I have been doing more than just crochet, but I wanted to show this to you all before I give it away. Hope everyone is doing well, don’t you just love the chill in the air?

    Love the colour of this scarf – I may have to make one for myself!
    Is it “doable” for a beginner??

  2. Everytime I see a post with lovely crochet, I think I must make more effort to improve my crochet skills! I love the colour of the scarf – I am sure the swimming teacher will be delighted with it!

    Gill, it is absolutely doable for a beginner. All you need to know is how to chain and do a double crochet (I believe treble in the UK). Go for it, it’s deceptively easy.

  15. Patti says:

  16. Jackie says:

  17. Erin Johnson says:

    What is the pattern for this scarf?

  18. Natalie says:

    Beautiful scarf. I realize this is a really old post but I am wondering whether you think this scarf would turn out alright if I used a thicker (worsted weight) yarn?

  19. I have been browsing online more than 2 hours today, yet I never found
    any interesting article like yours. It is pretty worth enough for me.
    Personally, if all webmasters and bloggers made good content as you did, the internet will be
    much more useful than evera before.

  20. Hi! I’m about to begin my own website and was wondering if you know where the best place to acquire a website url is? I’m not even sure if that’s what its called? (I’m new to this) I’m referring to “”. How do I go about acquiring one of these for the website I’m making? Thanks

    Do you have a written pattern you can share? This is beautiful!

  22. Alex says:

    I think the pattern is (just working out from what I can see):
    Chain whatever amount you would like, must be a multiple of 8 + 3 stitches at the end

    Double crochet, chain one, skip one stitch, double crochet, skip two stitches, 5x double crochet in one stitch, skip two stitches

    Double crochet, chain one, skip one stitch, double crochet, skip two stitches, 5x double crochet in one stitch, skip two stitches … etc.

    And at the end, after you skip two stitches, double crochet, chain one, skip one, double crochet

    Also I think the beginning of the scarf is actually in the middle of it (you need to work both ways) and what you can see on the picture, is two ”ends”.

    I hope it helps. x
