Free Crochet Pattern – Swizzle Alpaca Ribbed Scarf

I use this pattern by Prague Loop over and over.  This scarf was made with our 100% Alpaca Swizzle Yarn, and took just one skein of yarn for a scarf that measured 60″ long  by  5.5″ wide.  The scarf is worked lengthwise, back and forth in rows, and gauge is not important.  Any yarn could be used and any size hook. Super easy one row scarf, very suitable for beginners.

Swizzle Alpaca Ribbed Scarf

The color of the Swizzle Yarn pictured above is called Goldenrod.

HOOK

US Size I – 5.5 mm

MATERIALS

197 Yards of Swizzle Alpaca Yarn

FINISHED MEASUREMENTS

5.5 inches wide, and 60 inches long

DIRECTIONS

Decide how long a scarf is good for you.  Chain an amount of stitches that is the length you want.  The scarf above was made with 145 stitches.

Setup row: HDC (half double crochet) in each st.

Row 1: HDC into back loop of every HDC of previous row.

(Note for the beginner: Unlike single or double crochet, the HDC stitches appear to have an extra loop at the top.  You will be using the loop that is at the back of the stitch.  In a few rows, you will see that the two loops you have not been using form a “chain” along the length of the scarf.)

Repeat row 1 until the scarf is as wide as you want or you run out of yarn.

You might want to work one round of single crochet around the whole thing, so the edge looks neat, but it is not necessary.  Weave in ends.

Blocking is optional.

The color of this Swizzle yarn is called Plum Perfection, and the yarn below is Academy Blue.

This scarf pattern is easy, mindless and quick, especially with a bulky yarn.  See the Bulky Ribbed Scarf made with this same pattern, and our Snuggle Yarn.

Kathy Lashley of Elk Studios Crafted Crochet Designs designed this pretty shawl pattern that she calls Dixie Charm – A Summer Shawl.  I’m changing the name a bit and calling it Dixie Alpaca Charm Shawl, because I used alpaca yarn of course!  I’ve made two so far, the first one was out of our Paca Paints Yarn, a hand-painted 100% alpaca yarn, by The Alpaca Yarn Company, a color called Wisteria Way.

For the second shawl, I used three different yarns, one our Swizzle Alpaca Yarn, color Plum Perfection, our Astral Yarn, color Libra, and our Classic Baby Alpaca Yarn , color called White House.  I’ll list the order of yarn colors I used in my next post, or just alternate as you wish.  The White House has the least amount of yardage, so save that one for single rows.

Both alpaca shawls are available to purchase, just click one of the images.

Free Crochet Pattern – Jessica Scarflette

This Jessica Scarflette crochet pattern is by Jessica Dassing of Chick-a-Pea Studio.  Any weight yarn will work using the appropriate hook, as there is no fit to this scarflette.

Free Knitting Pattern – Drop Stitch Swizzle Alpaca Scarf

Scarf Crocheted with Swizzle Alpaca Yarn

I love how this scarf turned out!

Scarf Crocheted with Swizzle Alpaca Yarn

The yarn I used is 100% alpaca so of course it is soft and lovely!  This yarn is hand-dyed.  The color is Academy Blue, one of the nine beautiful shades in the Swizzle line from The Alpaca Yarn Company available at Alpaca Meadows.

Swizzle Alpaca Yarn Scarf

 The pattern is by Christine Vogel of Frazzled Knits.  She is right, it does look beautiful in a variegated yarn.  The horizontal drop stitch makes it fun to knit … as the yarn overs are dropped, the lacy design is created!

Free Crochet Pattern – Bulky Ribbed Scarf

 I use this pattern by Prague Loop over and over.  It is easy, mindless and quick, especially with a bulky yarn.  Any yarn could be used and any size hook.  My favorite yarn to use with this pattern is our Snuggle Yarn.  This scarf is worked lengthwise, back and forth in rows, and gauge is not important.  Super easy one row scarf, very suitable for beginners.

Ribbed Crochet Scarf

The color of the Snuggle Yarn pictured above is called Seafoam.

HOOK

US Size N – 9.0 mm

MATERIALS

131 Yards of Snuggle Yarn

FINISHED MEASUREMENTS

6 inches wide, and 50 inches long
Bulky Ribbed Crochet Scarf

The color of this Snuggle Yarn is called Winkle.

DIRECTIONS

Decide how long a scarf is good for you.  Chain an amount of st that is the length you want.  The scarves above were made with 100 stitches, though next time I make it I may go a little longer.

Setup row: HDC (half double crochet) in each st.

Row 1: HDC into back loop of every HDC of previous row.

(Note for the beginner: Unlike single or double crochet, the HDC stitches appear to have an extra loop at the top.  You will be using the loop that is at the back of the stitch.  In a few rows, you will see that the two loops you have not been using form a “chain” along the length of the scarf.)

Repeat row 1 until the scarf is as wide as you want or you run out of yarn.

You might want to work one round of single crochet around the whole thing, so the edge looks neat, but it is not necessary.  Weave in ends.

Blocking is optional.

Enjoy your new scarf or give it to someone!

 This scarf was made with the same pattern using one of the Hand Dyed Snuggle Yarns called Knot of Naturals.  The hand dyed line comes in seven different colors!
