Textured Sparkle Scarf

I am always drawn to metallic yarn. I love the sparkle and shimmer of the metallic threads next to the regular yarn texture.  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 (Fuschia). The yarn is still soft like the regular With Love  and seems slightly thicker than the popular Super Saver.  I created this new free pattern, the Textured Sparkle Scarf,  specifically for this yarn in an easy-to-crochet textured stitch.  Unlike many other textured stitches, this one does not contain any post stitches.  Check out this video tutorial  and you’ll see it’s easier than it looks!

Textured Sparkle Scarf  by Jennifer E Ryan

Skill Level: Confident Beginner

Measurements: 6 1/2″ wide

Cowl: 26″ long

Scarf (infinity-style): 54″ long

Red Heart With Love Metallic Yarn in Fuchsia – 2 skeins

(Cowl is made with Red and I used less than 1 skein)

J/9/6 mm Hook

Yarn needle

4 decorative buttons


Ch 28

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


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.
