Spiral Crochet Scarf
Pattern is for personal use and may not be reproduced or distributed without the consent of the author
Almost any yarn will work with this project. Different yarns will yield drastically different results for this scarf. All scarves pictured used approximately 150g of yarn.
Gauge for this project is not critical for good results. A tighter gauge will give you a firmer fabric. A looser gauge will give you a softer fabric with more drape.
Appropriate for the yarn chosen.
Foundation Row: Begin with a slip knot. Chain an until the length is approximately the length you want your scarf to be.
Row 1: Make a double crochet in 2nd chain from hook. *Make 1 double crochet in the next chain and 2 double crochet in the following chain. Repeat from * to the end of the row. End with 1 double crochet if you have a chain left over.
Row 2 and all following rows: 2 double crochet in each double crochet across the row. Repeat until desired width is reached.
Weave in ends and block. To tighten the spirals during blocking, soak the scarf in a gentle wash. Press the excess water out. Starting at one end begin twisting in the direction of the spiral until you have a tight spiral. Secure either end in clips of a pants hanger run the middle of the scarf around the neck of the hanger. Unclip when dry and give it a few good shakes.
The spiral shape and tightness of the spiral can be affected by changing the first row.
The less full spiral was made by doing 1 double crochet in every chain the first row and completing row 2 & 3 as written in the pattern.
This fuller spiral shape was made by making 2 double crochets in every chain in the first row.
