I mentioned a free pattern the last time I was here. So I want to bring you a lovely, simple scarf pattern that I hope you will adore as much as I do. The Seedling Scarf uses seed stitch, a quick and easy stitch that works up soft and fast.
I work the scarf on the short end so it doesn’t feel like that long row goes on forever. And using only single crochet and chains, seed stitch is one of the easiest stitches to do. I like having a solid row of singles on both ends to cap it off. This pattern works well in variegated yarns. Here I’ve shown it in a bright solid color I like, grass green.
Okay, enough chattering. I hope you like the pattern. Here it is:
Size H hook
7 oz Grass Green yarn
CH = chain
STS = stitch
SK = skip
SC = single crochet
REP = repeat
REP from * = repeat everything inside these (symbols) or [these]
SEED ST = alternating sc and ch st with next row alternating in opposite spaces
- Ch 20, sc in 2nd ch and ea ch across. 19 sts.
- Ch 1, turn; Sc, [ (ch1 sts, sk 1 sts), sc in next st],* rep from * across. End with sc in last st.
- Ch 1, turn; Sc in 1st two sts, (ch 1, sk one st, sc in next st);* rep from * across to next to last st. End with a sc in last st.
Rep Rows 2 and 3 until desired length. Do not break.
Work one row Sc in ea st across to finish. Break and weave in ends.
