I’m in love with the extra-long section of ribbing at the bottom of this scarf. I love the little bit of drama and extra-ness it’s giving. It reminds me of a gorgeous sweater sleeve, but instead of draping down an arm, it’s wrapped beautifully around your neck.
This scarf is thick stripes of Patchouli Pink and Rose Hip from the Bernat Forever Fleece line of yarn. In the above photo, I have the scarf wrapped in a way that you can’t quite see them. But, hopefully in the next photo you can see the striped sequence.
It’s quite long as it’s meant to be able to wrap around the neck several times to keep you extra warm.
I think you can get an even better idea of how beautiful it looks as it is modeled in the next picture.
As I mentioned above, the main portion of the scarf is made from the classic Griddle Stitch. It is a go-to for us when using Bernat Forever Fleece yarn. The texture is so beautiful and once you get the alternating pattern down, it works up quite quickly.
You’ll change colors every 8 rows, so there will be a few ends to weave in, but not bad. It might take about 20 minutes extra. The final step will be making the ribbing on each end.
The pattern will have the steps written out, but if you need to learn the griddle stitch, or need a refresher, we have a stitch tutorial you can watch.
We also have a stitch tutorial for the ribbing section as well. It will illustrate the technique of working double crochet around the posts from the previous row. You’ll want to follow the directions for making the ribbing in the pattern section, but the video tutorial will be a help if you’ve never worked around the posts of stitches.
And, after you make the scarf, if you’d like, we have a matching hat pattern. It is made with Bernat Forever Fleece in the Rose Hip color and I added a pom pom in the pink patchouli color. It’s official name is the Chunky Griddle Stitch Hat pattern.
It’s such a cute set and so fun for Valentine’s Day.
