Things to Make: Stashbuster Crochet Scarf - Free Pattern!

I have a problem.

I hoard yarn.


Ask anyone who knows me.  I am notoriously a neat freak...I can't stand piles of stuff and clutter.  Except when it comes to yarn.  I can't stand tossing out the little left over scraps after a project is finished.  So I end up with little bags of scraps of yarn like this:



It's sad really.

So I decided that I needed to find a way to use up my teensy little scraps, and odds and ends!



This simple scarf pattern can be used with any kind of yarn and any size hook!  The different materials you use give different results...but all are wonderful!  It's super fast and easy...and the scarves you make are great for gifts!!

As you can see the type of yarn you use totally changes the look of the scarf...but they all look fantastic!!



Materials Needed:

Yarn - any kind

Crochet hook - any size you like that you feel compliments your yarn choice

sk = skip

dc = double crochet

st = stitch


Special Stitches:

Ch 17.
Row 1:  Dc in 5th ch from hook (counts as 1st Vst).  Sk next 2 ch; Shell in next ch; Sk next 2 ch; Vst in next ch; Sk next 2 ch; Shell in next ch; Sk next 2 ch; Vst in last ch.  Ch 3 turn.

Repeat Rows 2 and 3 until desired length is reached.  
End on a Row 3 pattern row.  Ch 1, sc in same st; Sc in Vst; ch 2, sc in top of shell; Ch 2, sc in Vst; Ch 2, sc in top of shell; Ch 2, sc in last Vst.  Sc in top of beg ch from previous row.  Finish off, weave in ends.

You can leave the scarf long, or sew the two ends together to make a circle scarf or cowl!  You can add buttons or other embellishments if desired!  Have fun with it!

No more teensy balls of yarn and odds and ends!
