I have a quick and easy palette cleanser pattern for you today that is going to use up WeCrochet Felici which is a really cool self striping yarn.
If you keep scrolling, you’ll find the FREE pattern, but ad-free PDF versions are also available on Ravelry, Etsy and my website.
When I got some WeCrochet Felici in my hands I wanted to do something simple that would show off the self striping aspect of the yarn. I love stripes, but weaving in all those ends can be such a PAIN! Self striping yarn is definitely the solution to this, but at times that can make the stripes look jagged or unintentional.
I wanted to make a scarf that would seem intentional in it’s striping. I play around with various widths and landed on a loooooonnnggggg skinny scarf that could be an accent to an outfit or you could wrap it around your neck many times to provide some warmth.
I asked you all on Instagram what this super long scarf should be called and my absolute favourite was the Stripe It Down Scarf. I loved the play on Luke Bryan’s Strip it Down song, since I am a country fan girl at heart.
If you can do a double crochet, and are looking for a simple make that’s a statement piece then this is exactly the one for you!
All the information you need to complete the scarf can be found below! When making it please be sure to share your work on Instagram and tag me (@by.stephanie.erin) as well as tag your pics with #StripeItDownScarf so that I can check out your projects and you can see everyone else’s Stripe It Down Scarf!
Stripe It Down Scarf
Hook – 3.75 mm hook or hook needed to obtain gauge
I prefer to use Soak! The pineapple scent is my favourite.
17 sts and 11 rows in dc = 4” blocked
dc double crochet
dc2tog double crochet 2 together – yarn over insert hook in next st and pull up a loop, yarn over and pull through 2. Yarn over and insert hook in next st and pull up a loop, yarn over and pull through 2. Yarn over and pull through all 3 loops.
This scarf is worked on the bias meaning we will be increasing at one end, and decreasing at the other on every row. This is what gives the diagonal striping. This scarf is very easy to adjust, you can start by chaining additional sts if you want a wider scarf and can omit/add rows to make it shorter/longer.
The chain 2 at the start of the row counts as a dc.
Row 1: Ch 35, dc in the 3rd ch from the hook. Dc in each ch across. (34 sts)
Row 2: Ch 2 (counts as a dc), dc in first st (inc made). Dc across until 2 sts rem, dc2tog. (34 sts)
Row 3: Ch 1, dc in 2nd st (counts as a dc2tog). Dc across until 1 st rem, 2 dc in last. (34 sts)
Repeat rows 2-3 until your scarf measures approximately 130″ in length or until you have used almost all of your 4 balls of Felici. This scarf can be adjusted to be shorter or longer if needed.
Block according to fibre.
I like to soak my wrap in lukewarm water with a non rinse soap like Soakfor 20 minutes. Then lay flat to dry on blocking mats or a towel.
Weave in all ends!
Enjoy your new Stripe It Down Scarf!
That’s all there is to this simple and easy scarf!
