Crochet Ombre Ribbed Scarf

One crochet scarf with ombré yarn

Thank you so much for stopping by for the pattern to this easy Crochet Ribbed Ombre Scarf! Wow, doesn’t this stitch look so amazing in the Caron Colorama Halo Perfect Phasing yarn? 

We think this scarf captures the beauty of the stitch and the color shading of the yarn. 

Besides being so soft and cozy, Caron Halo is so easy to work with. If you do happen to make any mistakes, they easily pull out so you can begin again. Some fuzzy yarns are not so forgiving in that area, but we were glad that the extra fuzzy fibers did not tangle and make it hard to undo the yarn.

With a ribbed stitch, it should be fairly easy to work around the double crochet posts (the vertical bar) and not worry about working into the tops of stitches. That made this scarf work up fairly quickly. We had it finished in a few hours.

This yarn is not scratchy at all, so it makes it very nice to wear around your neck. The ribbing gives the yarn some fun bounce and stretch too. 

You will be working in long rows to get the shading to go from dark to light. You’ll want to pull from the center of the cake to get started, and then the color fades to white when you’re almost finished. 

You will be able to make a nice 6-inch by 80-inch long scarf in one skein by using a larger hook. We are recommending going up two sizes to an 8 mm size hook. The hook size suggested on the packaging is 6 mm. We wanted the scarf to have more drape and less weight since we were using the ribbed stitches.

We have a short video tutorial demonstrating the ribbed stitch that you can watch if you’ve never worked a double crochet around the posts. We hope you’ll make a practice swatch so you’ll understand how to work the last stitch of the row around the turning chains. You want to be able to have the ends turn out straight since there is no border. 

The video plays after a very short ad.

Enjoy making your scarf! And if you would like to see other scarf patterns on our website, be sure and visit our category Crochet Patterns/Scarves for more ideas.
