Sweet Shop Scarf, Free Crochet Pattern + Video


The Sweet Shop Scarf is a fun and happy scarf that is a wonderful pattern to use up all of your yarn odds and ends.  Random striping of bright colors and gorgeous star stitch make this both fun to make and fun to wear too!  Want fringe on your scarf?  You can easily add that too!
Want a little help? There's a full video tutorial below too!

I am so super excited that this pattern is part of the 2021 Scarf and Hat of the Month CAL with The Stitchin Mommy and Oombawka Design Crochet. Each month three scarf patterns are released at once and you get can get the patterns all for free for a limited time!

The pattern for my scarf is available free below and you can get the other two scarf patterns from the CAL at the following links:

Materials:
  • 6.0 mm J crochet hook 
  • 558 yards of worsted weight yarn (this includes both scarf and fringe)  I used Red Heart Chic Sheep in Mai Tai, Lace, Polo, Fairy Tale, Mimosa, Creme De Mint, Green Tea, Suede, and Vineyard
  • Tapestry needle 
  • Scissors 
  • Tape measure

Finished Sizing:
  • 48 inches long
  • 6 inches wide
  • Fringe adds an additional 7 inches to each side (14 inches total)


Pattern notes: 
  • No special count for striping, I did a random striping pattern for the entire scarf.
  • sc5togInsert hook in stitch or chain (depending on the row you're on), yarn over, pull loop through, *insert hook in next stitch, yarn over, pull loop through, repeat from * 4 times total, yarn over, pull through 6 loops on hook.
  • If you are unfamiliar with the star stitch, I highly recommend the video, where I demonstrate everything completely, stitch by stitch.

Instructions:

Ch 31 (any odd number will work)

Row 1: sc5tog from 2nd chain, ch 1, *sc5tog from ch 1 (pull up first loop from "eye" of the star, pull up next loop from in between last two spikes worked, pull up next loop from last chain worked, pull up next loop from next chain, pull up loop from next chain (6 loops on the hook). Yarn around hook, bring through all 6 loops, then ch 1.  Repeat from * until you have 1 chain left, then work 1 hdc in that last ch.

Row 2: Ch 2 and turn. *Work 2 hdc in each ch 1 ("eye" of the star) from previous row.  Repeat from * across the row, then 1 hdc in the last stitch.

Row 3: Ch 3 and turn.  sc5tog from 2nd chain (bring up a loop in second ch from the hook, bring up a loop in third ch from the hook, bring up a loop from the first stitch, bring up a loop from each of the next three stitches (6 loops on the hook), yarn around hook and bring through all 6 loops, then ch 1.  Now work the row as we similarly did in row 1...*sc5tog from ch 1 (pull up first loop from "eye" of the star, pull up next loop from in between last two spikes worked, pull up next loop from last stitch worked, pull up next loop from next stitch, pull up loop from next stitch (6 loops on the hook). Yarn around hook, bring through all 6 loops, then ch 1.  Repeat from * until you have 1 chain left, then 1 hdc in that topmost chain from the previous row.

Repeat rows 2 and 3 until scarf is desired length, ending on row 2 (I made mine about 48 inches long).  

*Note: Be sure to change colors when you begin row 3, for the best visual effect.

Assembly & Finishing:

To add fringe (optional) Measure a length of yarn 10 inches long.  Pull another 10 inches and fold  in half, then fold in half again.  Using your hook as a helper, loop it into any stitch along the bottom edge of the scarf.  Pull the ends through the loop and pull gently to tighten.  Repeat across on both ends of the scarf.  Trim edges in a straight line to neaten them up a bit.

Weave in any ends that remain and you're finished!
