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.
I used one of our Swizzle Yarns, a DK weight, and 100% alpaca. The color is called Punk Rock Princess, now isn’t that a fun name?
276 Yards or 1.3 skeins of Swizzle Yarn, enough left for another small project
Button holes are not necessary since there are openings created by this crochet stitch. When picking out buttons, test out how they fit with your project; button size will vary with gauge and yarn choice.
This alpaca scarflette measures roughly 9 inches/ 23 cm wide and 39 inches/ 101 cm long.
Chain 28 stitches. These include the extra 3 chains at the start of Row 1. These chains will allow your double crochet stitches to stand up straight.
Row 1: 5dc in 4th chain from hook, *skip 2 chains, single crochet into next chain, skip 2 chains, 5 double-crochet into next chain*. Repeat between**s until 3 chains remain. End row 1 with 3 double crochets in last chain. Turn work.
Row 2: Chain one,*5 double-crochets into single crochet from previous row, single crochet into middle stitch of shell from previous row*. Repeat between**s until last shell, 3 double-crochet into top of chain 3. Turn work.
Rows 3-66: Repeat rows 1 & 2 until desired length. Weave in ends. Sew on buttons along one side.
Optional Edging: Continue around the outside border of the scarflette adding shell pattern over and over again, making twice as many double crochets to round the corner stitch.
