Raspberry Fan Scarf/Cowl and Hat Set


Remember the Snowbird baby blanket?   This pattern utilises the same gorgeous large fan stitch, modified for an infinity scarf/cowl and hat.

I used worsted weight yarn (aran/10ply), in colour "Raspberry"; you may choose any colour you like!


The scarf measures 45" x 6" (completely adaptable to any size - use any multiple of 14 + 2 for the scarf, and any multiple of 14 sts for the hat).

You will need:  3 skeins worsted weight yarn; 5.5mm and 6mm hooks; a yarn needle.

The pattern looks complicated and uses a treble crochet cluster.  I have labelled it "Intermediate" but full instructions are given.

  

Pattern is written in US terms; a conversion chart for UK terms in included at the end.


Materials:  3 skeins worsted weight yarn (aran/10ply); 5.5mm hook, 6mm hook; yarn needle

Gauge:   12 sts and 18 rows single crochet on 5.5mm hook = 4”

Abbreviations:  sc = single crochet; hdc = half double crochet; dc = double crochet; yo = yarn over;   sl st = slip stitch; sk = skip; beg = beginning; rep = repeat; trc cluster = (see Special Stitches).

Finished measurements:  Scarf: 45” x 6”; Hat: to fit Adult Women (sc band is 20” – 22” Circumference; Length from crown = 9.5”.

Special Stiches:

2trc cluster:  Yarn over twice, insert hook into next st, yo, draw yarn through, yo, draw yarn through 2 loops, yo, draw through the next 2 loops; yo twice, insert hook into the same st, yo, draw yarn through, yo, draw yarn through 2 loops, yo, draw through the next 2 loops; then draw through all remaining 3 loops.

3trc cluster:  Yarn over twice, insert hook into next st, yo, draw yarn through, yo, draw yarn through 2 loops, yo, draw yarn through the next 2 loops; yo twice, insert hook into the same st, yo, draw yarn through, yo, draw yarn through 2 loops, yo, draw through the next 2 loops; yo twice, insert hook into the same st, yo, draw yarn through, yo, draw yarn through 2 loops, yo, draw through the next 2 loops, yo, draw through all remaining 4 loops.


Scarf/Cowl:

Row 1:  With 6mm hook, ch 170, (or any multiple of 14 + 2); hdc in 3rd chain from hook, and to the end.  Join, but do not twist or you will have the front of the stitch on one half of the scarf, and the back on the other showing to the front.

Row 2:  (ch4, 2tcr cluster, ch3, 3trc cluster) in 1st st, *ch2, sk 6, sc**, ch2, sk6, (3trc cluster, ch3, 3trcluster, ch3, 3trc cluster) into next st*; rep to last 6 sts finishing last rep at **.  Sk 6, ch2, 3trc cluster into same st as beg ch4, ch3, sl st to top of centre trc.

Row 3: Into the middle of the centre trc cluster you just slip-stitched to, (ch1, sc in same st); ch2, (3trc cluster, ch3, 3trcluster, ch3, 3trc cluster) into next sc, *ch2, sc into the centre trc of the next centre 3trc cluster; ch2, (3trc cluster, ch3, 3trcluster, ch3, 3trc cluster) into next sc*; rep from * to * to end.  Sl st to beg sc.

Rep Rows 2 and 3 until the desired width is reached.

Next Row:  ch7, sc in sc from prev row, *ch6, sc in top of centre 3trc; ch6, sc in next sc*; rep around, sl st to 1st ch of beg chain.

Next Row:  ch2; hdc in every chain and every sc around.  Sl st to beg hdc.

Next Row:  ch2 hdc in every st around.sl st to beg hdc, fasten off.  Note:  if you find your edging “frilling” and you don’t want it to, simply hdc2tog every 6th st on this round and that will straighten it up.

Turn the scarf around, attach yarn to any space between any hdc, (not the unused loop of the beginning chain), ch2, work one row of hdc around this edge also.  (Again, if it “frills”, simply work hdc2tog every 6th stitch as before.)

Fasten off, weave in ends.

Hat:

Row 1:  With 5.5mm hook, make a magic ring.  Ch2, work 7hdc into ring.  Sl st to beg hdc. (7)

Row 2:  ch2, 2 hdc in same, 2 hdc in every stitch around.  Sl st to beg hdc.  (14)

Row 3: ch2, 2 hdc in same, *1 hdc in next stich; 2 hdc in next st*; rep from * to * to last stitch; 1 hdc in last st.  Sl st to beg hdc.  (21)

Row 4:  ch2, 2 hdc in same, *1 hdc in next 2 sts; 2 hdc in next st*; rep from * to * to last 2 sts; 1 hdc in each of the last 2 sts.  Sl st to beg hdc.  (28)

Row 5:  ch2, 2 hdc in same, *1 hdc in next 3 sts; 2 hdc in next st*; rep from * to * to last 3 sts; 1 hdc in each of the last 3 sts.  Sl st to beg hdc.  (35)

Row 6: ch2, 2 hdc in same, *1 hdc in next 4 sts; 2 hdc in next st*; rep from * to * to last 4 sts; 1 hdc in each of the last 4 sts.  Sl st to beg hdc.  (42)

Row 7:  ch2, 2 hdc in same, *1 hdc in next 5 sts; 2 hdc in next st*; rep from * to * to last 5 sts; 1 hdc in each of the last 5 sts.  Sl st to beg hdc.  (49)

Row 8:  Ch2, hdc in same, *1 hdc in next 6, 2hdc in next st; *; rep from * to * to last 6 sts; 1hdc in each of the last 6 sts.  Sl st to beg hdc. (56)

Row 9:  Ch2, hdc in same, *hdc in next 7, 2hdc in next*; rep to last 7 sts;  1hdc in each of the last 7 sts.  Sl st to beg hdc. (63)

Row 10:  Ch2, hdc in same, *hdc in next 8, 2hdc in next*; rep to last 8 sts; 1hdc in each of the last 8 sts.  Sl st to beg hdc. (70)

Note:  The fan st on the hat is slightly different than on the scarf.  In between each 3trc cluster, work only 2 chain instead of 3 as you did in the scarf.

Row 8:   (ch4, 2tr cluster, ch2, 3trc cluster) in 1st st, *ch2, sk 4, sc**, ch2, sk4, (3trc cluster, ch2, 3trcluster, ch2, 3trc cluster) into next st*; rep to last 4 sts finishing last rep at **.  Sk 4, ch2, 3trc cluster into same st as beg ch4, ch2, sl st to top of centre trc.

Row 9:  Into the middle of the centre trc cluster you just slip-stitched to, (ch1, sc in same st); ch2,  (3trc cluster, ch2, 3trcluster, ch2, 3trc cluster) into next sc, *ch2, sc into the centre trc of the next centre 3trc cluster; ch2, (3trc cluster, ch2, 3trcluster, ch2, 3trc cluster) into next sc*; rep from * to * to end.  Sl st to beg sc.

Repeat rows 8 and 9 until the hat measures 7”.  If you want the hat more slouchy, make it longer here, to your desired length – remember the sc band will add another 3”.

Next Row:  ch1, sc in same st, 1 sc into 2 ch sp; continue to the end by working 1 sc into the top of each 3trc cluster, and 1sc in each ch2 spaces either side of each 3 trc cluster and each side of each sc, sl st to beg sc. (56)

Next 10 rows:  ch1, sc in each st around.  (If you find your band is too large, don’t be afraid to try switching down a hook size for the band only).

Fasten off and weave in your ends.

Congratulations, your Raspberry Fan Scarf and Hat are complete!
