Textured Crochet Scarf
This Textured Crochet Scarf shows that I am always drawn to metallic yarns. I love the sparkle and shimmer of the metallic threads next to the regular yarn texture especially when the metallic thread is the same color as the yarn. When I was creating the Lacy Dog Collar project I looked all over for some red metallic yarn. I found Red Heart’s With Love Metallic yarn and ordered it in red and this bright pink you see above (Fuchsia). Unfortunately, this yarn is no longer manufactured. 😓
Metallic Yarn Used for the Textured Crochet Scarf
Thankfully, Red Heart (www.yarnspirations.com) now makes their very popular Super Saver Yarn with some Metallic options. (Click here to see them) This yarn would work great as a substitute. You could also crochet this Textured Crochet Scarf with any medium weight yarn and it would look great!
Easy Stitch Pattern Featured in this Textured Crochet Scarf
The stitch I used for this scarf is one of my favorite textured stitches because it is so easy to make! Can you believe that it does not contain any post stitches?! Post stitches are a great technique used in crochet to create a variety of cables and textured fabrics but they can be very challenging especially to beginners. All you need to know to crochet this stitch are treble crochets and double crochets. Check out this video tutorial below and you’ll see it’s easier than it looks! The stitch is called the “Arrow Stitch”.

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

Dc (double crochet) = YO, insert hook into stitch, YO, draw up a loop, (YO, pull through 2 loops on hook) twice
Tr (treble crochet) = YO twice, insert hk into st, YO, draw up a lp, (YO, pull through 2 lps on hk) 3 times
YO (yarn over)
Instructions for the Textured Crochet Scarf:
Row 1 (Wrong Side):
Working in the back bar of the ch, dc in 4th ch from hook and in each ch across. (25 dc plus ch-3 turning chain)
Row 2 (Right Side):
Ch 3, dc in same st, [sk next 3 dcs, tr in next st; working behind tr just made, dc in each of skipped dcs] across (6 times); dc in last dc. Leave turning chain unworked. Turn. (6 slanted trs)
Row 3 (Wrong Side):
Ch 3, dc in same st, [sk next 3 dcs, tr in next st; working in front of tr just made, dc in each of skipped dcs] across (6 times); dc in last dc leaving turning chain unworked. Turn. (6 slanted trs completing the ‘arrow’)
Repeat Rows 2 and 3 until project measures length desired (see measurements listed above)
Optional: With Right Side facing, sc evenly along all edges of the scarf
Finishing of the Textured Crochet Scarf:
For Cowl: With Wrong Sides facing, fold cowl in half lengthwise; Sc both short ends together making sure to pass through top 2 loops of each side of each st along edge; Fasten off. Sew (or attach) decorative button or element to center. (I used a “Rhinestone Buckle” I found at Hobby Lobby – I removed the middle metal bar and sewed the heart on with sewing thread as shown in the photo – You can purchase one here.)
For Scarf: Using photo as a guide sew on buttons evenly spaced across Row 1 of scarf (the row of all dcs). Be careful to position buttons so they will fit nicely through holes created by stitches on opposite end of scarf.
