This easy to make chevron scarf just takes a few hours to whip up and is a great way to get rid of scrap yarn.
I love this scarf! I whipped out two the night before my Disco Abba Party and they were a hit!
The crochet chevron patter is super simple and easy to adapt! My parents were given a full size chevron crochet blanket for their wedding that I still remember fondly!
Rainbow Chevron Crochet Scarf
medium weight yarn
K- 6.5 mm hook (or any other hook for a tighter or looser scarf!)
sl st- (slip stitch)
dc (double crochet)
dc2tog (double crochet 2 together)
Row 1 – dc in 3rd chain from hook (first 2 ch count as first dc here and throughout) dc in next 4 ch, dc2tog in next ch *dc2tog in next ch, dc in next 4 ch, 2dc in next 2 ch, dc in next 4 ch, dc2tog in next ch* repeat between ** across to the last 7 ch, dc in next 4 ch, dc2tog in next 2 ch, finish off and cut yarn with a long tail.
Row 2-7 -change color- sl st in first stitch, ch 2, dc in the same stitch as the sl st, dc in next 4 stitches, dc2tog in next stitch, *dc2tog in next stitch, dc in next 4 stitches, 2dc in next 2 stitches, dc in next 4 stitches, dc2tog in next stitch* repeat between ** across to the last 7 stitches, dc in next 4 stitches, dc2tog in next 2 stitches, finish off and cut yarn with a long tail.
The pattern in pictures, with some other tips and tricks thrown in:
(this is the length of the scarf, you can do any length you like, just in groups of 14 plus 2, for the tutorial I’m showing you 2 chevrons, so 28 + 2 I started with a ch 30)
For Row 1- dc in 3rd ch from hook
For Row 2-7 we’ll be changing color every row- sl st in first stitch, ch 2, dc in same stitch that you just sl st from
(Now EVERY row): dc in next 4 stitches, dc2tog in the next stitch
This is where the repeat starts: *dc2tog in next stitch, 2dc in next 2 stitches,
dc in next 4 stitches, and dc2tog* repeat between ** across the ch or row until you get to last 7 stitches. End with dc2tog, dc in 4 stitches and 2dc in the last stitch finish off every color for every row!
I did the tutorial piece with an I-5.5 hook, but the actual scarf with a K-6.5 hook. You can see the difference. Feel free to use any hook you want to get the look you desire!
Also you can use any yarn you have, mine are all left overs from other projects, with even slightly different brands and weights and feels and it looks just fine.
You can choose to start on the same side every time or go back and forth as if you were working with the same yarn and turning at the ends of the rows.
I did the turning, but wish I had started on the same side every time, I think it would have made the rows more even. See how the green and orange rows look thinner? It’s because these are the “wrong” side while the red, yellow and blue are the “right” side!
