Whips & Chains Scarf

This is the 2nd ever pattern I have actually written down. If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to email me!

To get started you just need worsted weight yarn in any color– or really any yarn you have on hand and love, and a K Hook– or larger hook for a bulkier yarn.

This pattern is really less of a pattern and more of a guideline, you can adjust the length of the scarf, and the number of chains that you include in the scarf. Its about as easy going as I am. 🙂 I finished it in about 45 minutes once I figured out what I wanted to do.

Stitches:

Slip Stitch (Sl St), Chaining (CH), Single Crochet (SC), and Half Double Crochet (HDC). Youtube has a plethora of instructional videos, and I can add more detailed instructions here if there is the need.

The basic construction is several loops bound together. The loops have different textures and when they are put together it makes this fun little number.

To start: (for worsted weight and K hook)

Loop 1:

Chain 180, slst together.

Chain 2, SC in CH next to hook. This completes loop 1.

Loop 2:

Chain 180, SLST in beginning CH, then CH 1. *SC in next st, chain 1, skip next stitch, repeat until end. SLST to finish loop, CH 2, SC in CH next to hook.

Loop 3: *Chain 3. HDC in 1st chain next to hook* Repeat 60 times. SLST to complete loop 3. Ch 2, SC in CH next to hook.

I repeated loop 1 & 3 and ended up with a total of 5 loops. Once I finished the last loop, SL ST as previous stated, then held my loops out. Make sure your loops are evenly distributed, and begin wrapping the loops with your working yarn. Wrap the part where the chains is are all connected, and make sure it isn’t wrapped too loosely. I went up and down twice, tied off, and then weave your end into the wrapped part. Tada! You’ve done it. 🙂
