At Great Length: The Free Adair Scarf Crochet Pattern

Who’s celebrating scarf and sweater season? Oh, it’s me! It’s true. 🙂 Living in Southern California means that we really don’t get “winter” like I’ve had in the past so when the temperatures begin to dip, not really to freezing or anything but definitely cold, I take it as a sign that it’s time to make some cozy sweaters and break out those scarves. And this week’s new pattern is all about that cozy season life – say hello to the Adair Scarf.

So this new scarf started out as me just wanting to use Color Theory. I was in the middle of my Hadley Pullover and I was like just loving the colors I was using and how well the yarn was working up that I had to make something else with the skeins I had left over. And because it’s so soft, notably soft for a 100% acrylic worsted, I thought it would make the most perfect scarf. But it’s pre-holiday season, I’m busy you’re busy and I didn’t want to make anything too terribly complicated but still full of texture. I think I nailed that tbh :d

As you’ll see with the pattern it utilizes my favorite stitch, the half double crochet, but switches it up by making it a BLO/FLO repeat. This is the simplest way to add some texture to a design, just BLO (or FLO) that stitch. It does take a bit more time than just making the stitch through both loops but it pays off hugely with that texture. But a note – when I was working this scarf I found that the sections of BLO/FLO hdc were a bit tighter than my sections of color B and so they needed some good steam blocking. I don’t know if it’s how Color Theory works up or the different in how soft the texture is there but honestly the blocking made it not even noticeable. So if you have that issue, just a little blocking will fix that right up for you.

Oh, did I mention this scarf is super long? I do love a good long scarf, it gives you the option to let it dangle or you can wrap it around one or two times to really get cozy. But knowing that I’m a bit of a weirdo and not everyone wants to worry if their scarf is dragging on the ground (just me and Lenny Kravitz), I included 3 sizes. It’s just a simple repeat of 32 rows that work out to be about 12.6″ in length, so you can add and subtract as you’d like. And as always, this would make a great stash buster or you can make it in 2 colors like I did. Or even one… and then you can make it shorter and add pockets! How cute would that be. Oh, I should have done that…

Anyway, before I let my ideas slip away, I do hope you like this week’s new pattern. It’s super easy and so many customization options for you. It’s gonna be a great gift for you or for anyone in your life. Have a great week!

Please note: I was provided the yarn for this pattern by Lion Brand Yarn for the purposes of designing the Adair Scarf crochet pattern, without compensation. I wasn’t provided the yarn with the expectations of positive or negative reviews but I really like this yarn. This is the second design I’ve used Color Theory on, the other is my Hadley Pullover, and I think it’s a lovely yarn.

Notes

  • If you’d like to support my blog, please consider purchasing this pattern on Ravelry.
  • Double crochet cluster (dcc): This st is worked over 2 sts. Yarn over, insert your hook into the first st, pull up a loop, yarn over, draw through 2 loops, yarn over, insert your hook into the next st, yarn over, draw through 2 loops, yarn over, draw through the final 3 loops on your hook, ch 1. This st is basically a dc2tog and a ch 1 being counted as 1 st and when you work back into it you will use both the top of the dc2tog and the ch 1.
  • This scarf is worked in rows.
  • The ch 1 at the beginning of some rows does not count as a st (just make it approx the same height as your hdc).
  • The ch 3 at the beginning of some rows does count as a st (as noted in the pattern).
  • Blocking is suggested for this pattern. The color A sections may be tighter than the color B sections, blocking will help that.
  • The even rows are the right side, although both sides are nearly identical.
  • In the photos: Color Theory by Lion Brand Yarn was used, color A is blue (CT in Tourmaline) and color B is brown (CT in Nutmeg).
