Welcome to the Primrose and Proper Super Scarf Crochet-a-long! I’m so glad you are joining me, and I look forward to seeing your finished pieces.
To get you started here is a list of materials you’ll need, as well as an overview of the stitches you’ll be using.
Links to the instructions will be added at the bottom of this post, so please keep scrolling down.
If you have any questions, please ask them on the Facebook page.
5.5mm (I) hook, or hook needed to obtain measurements.
500-525 yards of Red Heart Super Saver or Red Heart With Love (for a scarf that is about 8′ long and 6″ wide)
ch = chain
sc = single crochet
hdc = half double crochet
dc = double crochet
sl st = slip stitch
Stitching in the “3rd loop” of hdc. After turning, work all stitches for that row in the 3rd loop of the hdc from previous row (it will be in the front). Instructions: Look at the top of the stitch, and locate the sideways “V”, bend the stitch to look at the back, and you should see another “V”. You’ll be working into the back loop of that “V”, this is called the 3rd loop.
Several people have asked how to shorten this pattern, since the original is over 8 ft long. Try 192 stitches (193 chains) for a 5′ scarf, and 228 stitches (229 chains) for a 6′ scarf. You could even make a longer scarf, just make sure your starting chain number is divisible by 3 + 1 (the first two chains of the row count as a stitch).
