Ripple Crochet Scarf

It's been a while since a Klose Knit blog post, so we thought we'd break the silence to share this wonderful crochet scarf pattern with you! Crochet is the hot thing this summer, and we're really excited to have some new patterns in the shop. This one was written by our own Edda, and once again she has done great work!

Ripple Crochet Scarf

Heavier sock weight yarn, approx. 250 yards

ch- chain
dc- double crochet
dc3tog- 3 double crochet decrease
yo- yarn over hook

Special stitch-
dc3tog- to work a dc3tog, yo and insert the hook into next stitch, yo and draw a loop through, yo and draw through the first two looks on the hook, then do the same in each of the next two stitches. You now have 4 loops on the hook. Yo and draw a loop through all 4 loops on the hook.

Chain 36
Foundation Row:
Work one double crochet in the 4th chain from the hook, make one dc in each of the next 3 chains, *dc3tog in the next three chains, dc in each of the next 3 chains, 3 dc in the next chain, dc in each of the next 3 chains*
Repeat once more between *, then do a dc3tog and a dc in each of the net 5 chains. Chain 3 and turn.

Row 1
From now on work in the back loop of each dc.
Work 1 dc in the next 4 dc, *dc3tog in the next 3 dc, dc in each of the next 3 dc, 3 dc in next dc, dc in each of the next 3 dc*. Repeat once more, then do a dc3tog in the next three double crochet stitches, dc in the next 3 dc, 2 dc in to the turning chain. Repeat this row until the end of the scarf, or until you run out of yarn.

Hint: Make sure you have chan 3 and 4dc at the beginning of each row and 5 dc at the end

  1. Hi! I just saw this and am anxious to try it! I am wondering about what kind of yarn to purchase. I am not sure what a sock weight yarn is - would it be marked a '3' on the label. Most of what I've worked with has been a 4 worsted weight. Any ideas of brands, etc, that would work with this would be most appreciated! Thank you!
