Introducing the Crochet Clarissa Scarf! This is a fun one made and designed by Cyndi, aka Sugar Joye, using a combination of beautiful fall colors from Red Heart Super Saver yarn.
And of course, the built-in crocheted fringe she used makes the scarf extra special and easy to finish off. You can use any colors to make this, but don’t you think that the Carrot orange and the Cornmeal yellow work so well together? And then the extra pop of Light Grey with the Aran and tan makes it look current and modern.
This scarf is made with mostly single crochet and berry stitch. If you haven’t learned the berry stitch yet, we have a video tutorial of just the stitch to guide you. Practice a swatch a few times and you’ll have it down in no time. See the link below to be taken to our stitches page.
If this is your first time visiting our site, we have a lot of the stitches that we use in our patterns in a separate menu heading called “crochet stitches”. You can find over fifty of the most common crochet stitches and a few more of our favorite stitch combinations. Each stitch has a quick video tutorial that you can watch and make a swatch to learn the stitch.
A note before you get started, Cyndi is a lover of using a larger 9 mm hook when she uses Red Heart Super Saver. It gives her a lot of drape to the scarf. If you prefer to use a smaller hook, please take into account that you most likely will be chaining extra chains in order to make your scarf 72 inches. It’s really not a problem, just make sure you use an even number.
Also, if you are finding that the scarf is not wide enough, add more rows to the berry section before finishing with the final two rows of single crochet.
If you would like to make your scarf any different size, here are some scarf measurements for a range of lengths:
Generally, the width of a scarf is between 6 and 8 inches. Skinny scarves are around 3 to 4.5 inches wide. We love a nice 6 inches in width for warmth.
Also, if you are finding Red Heart Super Saver stiff or rough, no worries. After your project, simply toss it into the dryer with a wet washcloth and a dryer sheet for about 20 minutes. This will soften the yarn right up and you will have a wonderful scarf to gift or wrap nicely around your neck.
Have fun making your scarf and as always here on Daisy Farm Crafts, the free printable version of the pattern is at the end of the post. So be sure and scroll to the bottom if you would like to print the pattern.
