This was a quick and super easy scarf that I worked up with this gorgeous Premier Sweet Roll yarn in Cappuccino Pop. The yarn is very soft and it is self-striping so you don’t ever have to change colors and weave in ends. Yay! The scarf is nice and wide and really long so it can be worn wrapped around your neck several times for extra warmth or fashionably hanging down to the mid-thigh. (Of course I’m only 5 feet tall, so it may be shorter on you. Lol.) Here’s the pattern:
Row 1: Foundation single crochet an odd number then chain 3 – I did 25. (Alternatively you can chain an odd number plus 1 and then do a row of single crochet starting with the 2nd chain from your hook. Then ch 3.) The ch 3 counts as the first dc in the next row. Turn.
Rows 2-5: Double crochet across the row ending with a dc in the starting chain from the last row. Chain 3 and turn.
Row 6: Dc across. Ch 4 and turn (counts as first dc and ch 1)
Row 7: *Sk next st, dc in next st, ch 1, repeat from * to end of row, ending with dc in starting chain from last row. Ch 3 and turn.
Rows 8-11: repeat rows 2-5
Row 12: repeat row 7
Continue pattern of repeating rows 2-5 then 7 until scarf measures about 6 ft, then do one row of sc. Fasten off and weave in ends. Have fun!
The Premier Yarn Sweet Roll Double Crochet Scarf on the top of this page used about 1 1/2 cakes of the Premier Sweet Roll Cappuccino Pop, so I had a half a cake left over. I knew I could do something with half a cake, something that wasn’t too big or too small. Something that would use all three colors in that cake effectively. So, I decided to make a small satchel with a long strap to use up the yarn and match the scarf. This satchel is big enough to carry your phone, wallet, keys, and some more stuff too. It could also carry a decent sized book. I love how it came out with the color blocking effect of the Seeet Roll yarn, and it was super easy to do. Here’s how I did it:
Row 1:Sc in 2nd ch from hook and across to end, ch 1 and turn
Rows 2 and 3: Sc across, ch 1 and turn
Now switch to working in the round.
Round 1: Sc 3 times in last stitch from row 3, sc 2 times down the short side, sc 3 times in corner, sc down the long side, sc 3 times in corner, sc 2 times up the short side, sc 3 times in corner, sc up long side and join with sl st
Rounds 2-6: Ch 3, sk one st, dc around, join with sl st to beg ch 3
Round 7: Ch 4 (counts as 1st dc plus ch 1), *sk next st, dc in next st, ch 1, repeat from * around, join with sl st to 3rd ch of ch 4
Rounds 8-11: Ch 3, sk one st, dc around, join with sl st to beg ch 3
Round 12: Repeat round 7
Rounds 13-16: Repeat rounds 8-11
Round 17: Ch 1, sc around, join with sl st to first sc
Strap: Without breaking yarn, ch 160, sl st to satchel body on opposite side, sl st in next sc on satchel body, sc in all chains along the strap, sl st to sc on satchel body, fasten off and weave in both ends.
