Self Care Scarf

Take a trip to your happy place (the yarn aisle) and treat yo’ self to the softest, prettiest yarn you can find. I highly encourage you to keep this one for yourself. You absolutely deserve to make and wear this gorgeous scarf. It’s not selfish, it’s self care!

I used Yarn Bee Caterina for my scarf in the Emerald Blue colorway. I got it from Hobby Lobby. The yarn was wonderfully soft and I love the long color changes. There were a few spots where the yarn was a bit thicker than usual but you can’t tell in the finished piece. There were no knots in the skeins and the yarns ends were relatively easy to find, yay! It’s a thinner yarn than I’m used to working with (Light Worsted, DK Weight 3 yarn) but I was still able to use a nice big hook (5.5 mm) thanks to the closed nature of the stitch work)

I designed this pattern to be relaxing and satisfying. Here are some of the features:

  • No long starting chain
  • No sewing / No edging
  • No color changes
  • Works up quickly
  • A fun asymmetrical triangle shape
  • Textured, closed stitch work
  • Warm and cozy

I used a large font size in this PDF to make it easier to read and I didn’t include any pictures in the PDF so it’s more printer-friendly. I have also included a styling guide to give you some inspiration for all the different ways you can wear this scarf!

Everyone will be asking you what stitch you used. It is such an eye-catching design with lots of texture. I’ll let you in on a little secret though….it’s just a clever combination of single crochets and double crochets.
