Dragon Slayer Scarf


A Free Crochet Pattern

 This Pattern was originally posted on Crochetvolution which is no longer operational. I will be moving the patterns over to my blog so you can continue to use the free patterns

With my move to a colder climate draws nearer I have started a collection of scarves, and just warmer things in general. I wanted a scarf that was thick and cozy, but had a lacey look to it at the same time. This pattern is what resulted. The things that I love about this scarf are that you determine the length of the scarf in the first row, and that it is worked horizontally not vertically. The other thing that I like is that it is only three rows, so it is really easy to work up. 

One size
Model size is 6 in by 60 in.


Lion Brand:  Homespun yarn 1 skein
Bulky 5

The white scarf was made with Lion Brand: Wool- Ease Thick and Quick Super bulky 6 (2 skeins)

Hook: K/ 10.5 (6.5mm)

Not really necessary for this pattern.

            To complete the scarf you will make rows 1- 3, then you will turn the scarf over and repeat rows 2 and 3.
Special stitches:
Picot: Ch 4, sl st in st just made.

Row 1: Ch 9, join with sl st in 1st ch to make a loop, ch 3, make 8 dc in loop, {ch 9, sl st into last dc made, ch 2, sl st in loop with last dc (the first loop), turn so that string ends up in front of work, 9 dc in new loop} continue repeating {to} till you have your desired length and your end loops are facing opposite directions.(it should lay flat without any wave, like in the picture).

Row 2: Ch 5(counts as first dc and ch 2), turn, (dc in next dc, ch 2) five times, dc in next dc, sc in ch loop,{(dc in next dc, ch 2) 6 times, dc om next dc, sc in ch loop}, repeat {to}  till the end of the row.

Row 3: Ch 1, turn, sc in sc,{ (sc in next dc, picot, sc in next ch space) 6 times, sc in next dc, and sc in next sc}, repeat {to} till end of the row. Finish Off.

Turn scarf over and repeat rows 2 and 3 on the other side of the loops.

Finish off and weave in all ends.

Sunrise Sunset Scarf/Cowl Pattern

A Free Crochet Pattern

Have you ever had an idea but you did not know what to do with the idea. This scarf or cowl is one of those ideas. I first came up with it when I was thinking about hairpin lace and how you have to crochet strips of lace together to make it into something. I wanted to make strips of lace that would come together to make a cowl.

 When I was finished I was really excited with how it turned out, but then I thought the strips are really pretty by themselves. I wonder what it would look like if I chose a chunkier yarn and just had one strip. That brought about the scarf. Then I thought to myself what would it look like if I added some more color. It was stunning.

Some times that is how patterns happen, they evolve and grow into something more than what they were. Sometimes patterns have a hard time deciding what they are, this one sure did.

I like all the sides of it and all of the different personalities that it can have. I wanted to share with you what can happen with one simple pattern and that sometimes the possibilities for something is limitless.

Sunrise Sunset Scarf/ Cowl Pattern

Yarn: I used a fine lace weight yarn for the cowl.
I used Caron Simply Soft for the scarf.  
 Hook: For the cowl: size 7 steel hook
 The scarf: I/8 6.00 mm hook
Gauge:For the cowl each strip is 8 by 4 in.
 The scarf is 8 by however long you want it.


Foundation Row: Ch 4, (2 dc, ch 2, 3 dc) in forth ch from hook, {ch 1, turn, sl st into next 3 dc and into the ch 2 space, (ch 3, dc, ch 2, 3 dc) in ch 2 sp} repeat {to} till you have your desired width if making a cowl or till you have your desired length if you are making a scarf. Do not finish off.

Row 1: (You will be working down the side of the foundation row), Ch 6 (counts as tr and ch,2),{ tr, ch 2 in next dc that is sticking out} repeat {to } till last dc group, tr in last dc group.

Row 2: Ch 3 (counts as a dc), sk 2 ch make 2 more dc in same starting st, {sk 2 ch, 3 dc in next tr}, repeat {to}.

Row 3: Ch 2, dc2tog with the next two dc, {ch 2, dc3tog in the next 3 dc}, repeat {to}.

Row 4: Ch 8, sl st in forth ch made ( tr, picot just made), {ch 2, Tr in dc3tog, picot}, repeat {to}. Finish off.

Repeat rows 1 through 4 on the other side of the foundation row.

(If you want to add color to the scarf like the picture you will change color at row 2, and change back at row 4.)

To make cowl: (connect the strips together)

Make the scarf pattern (1 strip)

Repeat the scarf pattern on one side (2nd strip)

On the second side of the foundation row repeat rows 1- 3:

Row 4 for joining piece: Ch 6, sl st into first strip’s first picot, ch 2, sl st into forth ch of beginning ch 6, {ch 2, tr in dc3tog, ch 2, sl st in next picot of first strip, ch 2, sl st into tr just made}, repeat {to} till all picots are joined.

For the last strip you make for the cowl you will be repeating the second row 4 on each side, joining up both sides. 

Once it is all pieced together you can sc around both sides of the cowl to give it a finished look.
