Crochet Chevron Scarf!

Happy New Years Eve!! I just can’t believe 2014 is over. I have no idea where the time went! I had a great year, and I’m really excited to see what will happen in 2015!

Today I want to show you a chevron infinity scarf I just finished. I think it is one of my favorite things I have ever made! IMG_0446.JPGI started it several weeks ago in my effort to use up yarn I already have.  You may recognize it from this blanket I’ve been working on. I really need to get that one finished! I gravitate towards blues, greens and grays, as you can probably tell if you look through my projects. I keep making goals to branch out and try new colors, but I always come back to my favorites.
PatonsClassicWoolI used Patons Clasic Wool in Seafoam, Aran, Lemongrass and Grey Mix and a 5.5mm hook. This is a very simple pattern that can be customized to your liking so many ways. You can choose your favorite colors and make it as wide or as long as you want. I made mine long enough to make it an infinity scarf that can be wrapped around twice. You can easily just leave it as a long scarf and add a fringe or make it into a cowl. I love the versatility!ChevronScarf1Here is how I made my chevron pattern!

1. Start with a chain that is a multiple of 11. This is 33 chains wide as a sample. I like my scarves wider, so I actually made my scarf 55 chains to begin.

02. In second chain from hook, work 2 dc. Work one dc in next 3 chains. You should have 5 dc total. Skip next two chains and work one dc in each of the next 5 stitches. 13. Chain 2 and make a second dc in same chain stitch.24. Work one dc in each of the next 4 stitches. Skip two chain stitches and work a dc in each of the next 5 chains. Continue to the end of the chain. In the final part of the last chevron, work 2dc in the second to last chain stitch, and finish with a dc in the final ch stitch. 35. Chain 2 to turn (counts as first dc)46. Skip the first dc and work 2dc in the next stitch. Work one double crochet in each of the next two stitches.567. Skip the next 2 stitches and work one double crochet in each of the next 4 stitches. In the ch2 space from the previous round work dc,ch2,dc. Continue by working one dc in each of the next 4 stitches. 78. Continue working the same pattern until you reach the end. I think the most important thing is to make sure you have 5 dc in each section. It’s easy to accidentally skip a stitch and have your chevron’s end up a little crooked, so make sure you keep count!9_FotorIf you choose to make it into an infinity scarf, all you have to do is sew up the ends. I leave a long tail and just whipstitch the two ends together. I usually go over it twice to make it a little stronger.IMG_0419I made these stripes completely random and I love it! I think I will definitely make another scarf like this! I would love to see anything you might make with this pattern! You can follow me on Instagram or Twitter to share your projects!

    I’m having trouble with the end of the row. I can’t manage to get 5 stitches in the last group. If I skip 2 stitches as the pattern says in the last “dip” then there are only 4 stitches left to do double crochets in. What am I doing wrong?

    I am in the process of making this using various shades of rose, pink, burgundy and beige. It’s beautiful!
