Wishing all my readers a Happy and Peaceful New Year! Here is a new free crochet pattern for you using the oh so popular Caron Cakes Yarn - Ocean Waves Scarf. The colors and the stitch pattern reminded me of the calming ocean waves. Just like the name, working this scarf will calm you down. With its simple two row repeat, it would make a great project to do while watching your favorite show on television. I hope you enjoy working on it. Don't forget to leave your comments.
Pin it for later:
1. Worsted Weight variegated yarn. I used one ball of Caron Cakes in color Cake Pop
2. Hook I (5.5mm)
3. Tapestry needle to weave in the ends.

sc- single crochet
fpsc- Front post sc
dc- double crochet
Front post single crochet (fpsc):Worked like a regular sc except for the way you insert your hook. The hook is inserted in the same way as working a front post double crochet. See my tutorial on front post double crochet here : Front Post Double Crochet Tutorial
Note: The Scarf is made lengthwise. The more chains you add, the longer your scarf will be. Initial chain should be a multiple of 4+2.
Row 1: Chain 302, 1 sc in 2nd chain from hook, *(Ch 3, sk next 3 chs, 1 sc in next), repeat from * until end of the row, turn.---------76 sc
Row 2: Ch 3 ( counts as a dc here and throughout), 1 dc in same st as beginning ch-3, sk next ch-3 loop, *(3 dc in next sc, sk next ch-3 loop), repeat from * until end of row, 2 dc in last sc, turn. ---------74 3dc groups with 2 dc on either ends
Row 3: Ch 1, 1 sc in same st as beginning ch 1, *(ch 3, 1 fpsc around the middle dc of the next 3dc group), repeat from * to last 3dc group, ch 3, 1 sc in last dc, turn.---------76 sc
Row 4: Ch 3, 1 dc in same st as beginning ch-3, sk next ch-3 loop, *(3 dc in next fpsc, sk next ch-3 loop), repeat from * until end of row, 2 dc in last sc, turn. ---------74 3dc groups with 2 dc on either
Repeat rows 3 and 4 until your scarf is close to 7 1/2 inches wide and you end in Row 4.
Last Row: Ch 1, 1 sc in same st as beginning ch 1, *(ch 3, 1 sc in the middle dc of the next 3dc group), repeat from * to last 3dc group, ch 3, 1 sc in last dc, turn.---------76 sc
You might have to use a bigger hook for your tassels. Cut 4 strands of 8 inches each. Fold at the middle of the strands and pull through your scarf to get a loop, yarn over grabbing all the strands and pull through the loop. Tighten the knot. Repeat the steps to attach all the tassels. Trim as needed to level them.
Enjoy your new scarf!
