This romantic little scarf is the perfect accessory to tuck around your neck and keep the chill off while you wait for spring to arrive. Made with cuddly soft cotton-blend yarn, it’s comfortable enough to wear all day. And if you are not one for squish sentimentality, you’ll be happy to know they make this yarn in black, too. Either way, the lacy holes and motif-as-you-go construction makes this a project you can crochet in an afternoon.

Pattern

You’ll make two scarf halves that you can connect in the middle so that your hearts are always right-side up when you wear your scarf. The finishing touch is a single crochet row around the outer edge.

Many stitches are made into the chain space of the previous row. This allows you to move the stitch around later to adjust it to be in just the right place. This allows you to adjust the stitches to straighten up the edges. You may also need to scoot around the two interior double crochets on row 6 so that they are centered on their chain arches.

If the directions instruct you to stitch “into” a specific chain, then put your hook under the two top V strands of the chain stitch. If the directions instruct you to stitch into the chain bump, that is the single strand underneath the chain’s V strands.
As always, I’m happy to answer any questions you have about the pattern. Let me know if something isn’t clear to you.

Step 1: Make the first half of your scarf.

Foundation Row: With the 2.75mm hook, ch 13, sl st into the fourth bump from your hook (makes a chain loop), ch 13

 

Row 1: Turn, dc into 9th ch from hook, ch 3, 5 dc into the chain loop, ch 3, dc in the fifth ch from the chain loop, ch 3, skip 3 ch and dc in last ch of Foundation Row

 

Row 2: Turn, ch 6, 2 dc in first dc of Row 1, dc in next st 3 times, 2 dc in last dc of Row 1, ch 4, dc into last ch sp of Row 1

Row 3: Turn, ch 5, 2 dc in first dc of Row 2, dc in next st 5 times, 2 dc in last dc of Row 2, ch 2, dc into last ch sp of Row 2

Row 4: Turn, ch 6, sc into 1st dc of Row 3, skip 1 dc and make 6 dc into next dc, skip 1 dc and sl st into next dc, skip 1 dc and make 6 dc into next dc, skip 1 dc and sc into last dc of Row 3, ch 2, tr into last ch sp of Row 3

Row 5: Turn, ch 7, sc in 4th dc of Row 4, ch 7, sc in 3rd dc from sl st of Row 4, ch 5, dc in last ch sp of Row 4

Row 6: Turn, ch 6 dc is first chain space of Row 5, ch 3, 5 dc into fourth ch of the middle 7-chain space, ch 3, dc into last ch sp of Row 5, ch 3, dc into last ch sp of Row 5 again.

Repeat Rows 2-6 until you have 12 motifs. End on Row 5.

Step 2: Make the second half of your scarf.
Follow directions in Step 1, but end on Row 4.

Step 3: Connect the scarf halves.

Connection Row: ch 1, take yarn loop off of hook, put hook through right-most ch sp of other half and put yarn loop back on hook, ch 1 (make connection), ch 5, sc into fourth dc of previous row, ch 2, take yarn loop off of hook, put hook through center ch sp of other half, put yarn loop back on hook, ch 1 (make connection), ch 2, sc in 3rd dc from sl st of previous row, ch 4, take yarn loop off of hook, put hook through left-most ch sp of other half and put yarn loop back on hook, ch 1 (make connection), dc in to last ch sp of previous row.

Step 4: Add edging to scarf.

Edge Row: With the 3.75mm hook, 2 sc in each space around, 5 ch in each corner space, and 3 sc in the spaces on either side of the Connection Row.

This helps smooth out the edges and gives a little weight to your scarf. I use a much bigger hook so the edge stays light and airy, like the rest of the scarf. If your edging is too loose or too tight, try a different hook size.

As you add the edging, crochet over the beginning and ending yarn ends to hide them. For the last sc, weave in the last end.
