Ombre Crochet Scarf

This Ombre Crochet Scarf is a FREE pattern for you that is made with Red Heart’s Super Saver Ombre yarn – Have you seen this yarn? The gradual monochromatic color changes are so pretty that it makes your project come out great!  This Ombre Crochet Scarf pattern uses a variation of the half double crochet stitch that is easy to do (see instructions below or check out this video to master this stitch). So, all you have to do is sit back and let the yarn do the work!

Inspiration for the Ombre Crochet Scarf:

I named this scarf “Ombre Log Cabin Infinity Scarf” because I created it and crocheted about half of it while my family and I were staying in this cabin in the mountains.  We tried something new this year by going away for a few days before Christmas – it was fun to relax in the woods and enjoy the winter wonderland of snow.  Of course, part of my relaxation included crocheting. 😉

Stitches Used in this Ombre Crochet Scarf:

I love the stitch that I crocheted this Ombre Crochet Scarf with and how it has a knit-like texture. The key to making it look this way is to complete it in the round and always have the Right Side facing you.  I made mine very long (66″) but if you would like yours a little shorter, then ch 150 instead of 200 (see below).  The yarn is very soft and has a lot of drape so it hangs nicely around your neck and over a coat.

Special Stitches and Abbreviations:

Back bar of the Chain = When looking at the right side of a chain, you see many “V’s” and the chain looks like a braid. Turn the chain over and you see a series of bumps – it is in these bumps that you will work across the chain to produce a row with even edges along both sides
