Does anyone else feel a bit relieved that the holiday season is nearly completely over? Of course New Years is still coming up, but the rush for gift making is over in my house. It’s so nice to not have to work, I worked a lot last week and I’m rather tired, and just sit and crochet. Too bad I burned my tongue on hot chocolate on Sunday and my coffee feels strange in my mouth, because otherwise everything would be super great. 😀
So, because I had the time to sit and enjoy, I decided to make a classically textured scarf, a basket weave! I was originally going to make this a cowl, because my scarves are always cowl, but instead it’s a long scarf. I think it’s because of the basket weave classic-ness, I wanted the scarf to be classic too. Even better, you can make this pattern your own, easily!
I also wanted to make this scarf because I used the Stitch Studio by Nicole, which is a yarn I really don’t care for and want to use it all up. Again, while making this scarf I found at least 3 knots in just the white alone. So rude. Also, this scarf was made using double stranding, but you can make it with just one strand, you should probably just go down a hook size or more.

Materials:

Gauge: not critical

Terms/ Stitches:

    • Ch: chain
    • St: stitch
    • Dc: double crochet
    • Fpdc: front post double crochet
    • Bpdc: back post double crochet

Notes:

  • This scarf is worked in rows, with a turn at the beginning of the first row.
  • You can replace the ch 3 at the beginning of the row with a chainless starting double crochet. I did and it makes a world of difference.
  • If you want this scarf to be wider, just add 3 more chains to row 1. Or if you want it thinner, subtract it by 3.
  • The color changes are listed below. I wrote them out in A – J, but if you want to opt out of changed colors, you can. I made this in rainbow colors, with what I had on hand. I’d love to see what ideas you come up with!
  • Fasten off after each color change. It’s not explicitly stated in the pattern below.

I ran out of white or else I would have added more rows and colors, like putting the pinky-magenta at the end as well as the beginning.
I like really long traditional scarves though!

I hope you like this pattern and if you have any questions, please comment!

In other news, I released the Bonnie Beanie (on the right), which is the companion pattern to the Bonnie Cowl from a year ago.
It’s super easy, cute, and the pattern comes in 5 sizes! You can make it for everyone on your list. 😀
