Crochet Bohemian Scarf

Introduction: Crochet Bohemian Scarf

About: Hi there, My name is Maya and I am the person running a crafty blog called The Little Treasures. I throw myself joyfully in all crafty activities starting from crocheting, sewing, knitting, drawing, quillin...

The crochet instructions will help you make this lovely bohemian scarf.

Step 1: Supplies

* 5 skeins of different color and size of yarn (I know there are only 4 in the pictures, but I used 5) ranging from sport to chunky yarn

* relevant hooks - I used 2 sizes: 7.00 & 3.00 mm

Optional: if you want to recreate the looks of my boho scarf, you will need all kinds of different ribbons. I used crochet, lace and sateen ribbons to decorate the fringed edging with the coral/burgundy scarf and also to weave through the blue/beige scarf.

To make this scarf we are going to use the Larksfoot / Icicle Stitch. The pattern uses multiples of 4. Measurements of the tutorial scarf: 52.4"/133 cm in length and 7.9" / 20 cm in width.

Length of fringes: 6.7" / 17 cm.

Important: change color for each new row.

Step 2: Row 1

Foundation: ch 181

Row 1:dc in 4th st from hook (makes the 2nd dc), then 1dc, ch1, sk1, 3dc.

Leave a long tail - do this for every row.

Step 3: Row 2

Row 2: {insert new yarn} repeat row 1.

To start it, ch 3 (counts as the 1st dc) and 2 dc in the next 2 sts. Continue making these sets of 3 dcs.

Step 4: Row 3:

Row 3: {insert new yarn}

Ch 4 (counts as 1 dc + 1 ch), sk 1, 1dc (over the 3rd dc in the row below), 1 elongated dc (encompassing the space of this and the row below it), 1 dc in the next stitch. This is the pattern for this row.

I ended row 3 by making the first dc of the larksfoot stitch (look closely at the picture). So whatever stitch number you choose (for the foundation) do not get confused if it ends differently (and it certainly will) – you just follow the pattern and be fine wherever it ends.
Mind the next row, though.

Step 5: Row 4

Row 4: repeat row 2 (mind how you finished). As you can see from the picture, I chained 4 and repeated row 2 across.

Step 6: Row 5

Row 5: repeat row 3

The repetition of rows 2 and 3 as well as the different yarn sizes makes this scarf greatly textured and appealing.

Step 7: Fringes

When you finish the scarf you are left with long tails. Now, you can weave these or tie ones next to one another together because we are going to make fringes which are going to cover these.

Add fringes of the same color as in the row, so the edging comes natural.

You can leave the scarf with the fringes only or add a bit of glam to it. Cut, place and pin to your own liking the arrangement of ribbons. Using a sewing thread and needle, secure these ribbons by sewing them onto the edge of the scarf. For the blue scarf I weaved the ribbons through.

You can also sew pom-poms. I have the tutorial for the pom-poms here. Look into my instructables.

Step 8: Ready to Wear

Enjoy your new scarf!
