Brick Street Scarf

Would you like a scarf pattern to go with that nice Brick Street Hat?

Here you go!

  

In the same pattern as the Brick Street Hat, here is an easy pattern for the matching Brick Street Scarf.  You can wear it long or wrapped for warmth in the colder weather.


Size:  Women’s 6” x 60” (adaptable to any size by making any multiple of 5 sts to fit).


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


Materials: 200g Worsted Weight Yarn #4; I used Hayfield Bonus Aran with 20% wool for the Cream scarf, and Lion Brand Pound of Love for the blue scarf.  I also tried this in Vanna’s Choice #4 and the results were almost identical.

5mm (H) hook; Yarn needle for weaving in ends

Gauge:  On 5mm (H) hook 12 sts and 14 rows =4”

If you find your gauge working out smaller or larger, substitute a different size hook to

compensate.

Pattern Notes:
The pattern is worked over first 6 rows, then a repetition of 5 rows. The repeat is very simple,
but you must place a stitch marker and be sure to keep track of which row you are on, so that
the start of the row is correct. To get the correct texture, work each hdc into the space between
stitches, not as you normally would, through the top 2 loops of the stitch .

You can make this scarf any length you wish, as long as you maintain a multiple of 5 sts.

Pattern is worked in rounds; do not join at the end of a row; place a stitch marker so that you
can keep track of the 1st stitch of each row.  Only join for the borders.


Difficulty: Intermediate

  


Working into the 3rd loop of a hdc . On every hdc you will find that there are 2 loops on the
top of the stitch, as with most stitches, which create the usual “v” along the top, a front loop and
a back loop. There is also a 3rd loop towards the back of the stitch, just behind the back loop,
which you can work into to make a defined ridge around the hat. You will need this technique
for the border.

Abbreviations:
sc = single crochet; fphdc = front post half double crochet; hdc = half double crochet; rep =
repeat; st/s = stitch/es; beg = beginning; sl st = slip stitch; blo = back loop only

Difficulty: Easy

Stitch Pattern for the main body of the scarf :

Row 1 : *fphdc, hdc 4; rep from * to end
Row 2:  hdc 3; *fphdc, hdc 4; rep from * to last 2 sts, fphdc in next st; hdc in next st
Row 3 : hdc 1; *fphdc, hdc 4; rep from * to last 4 sts, fphdc, hdc 3
Row 4 : hdc 4; *fphdc, hdc 4; rep from * to last st; fphdc
Row 5 : hdc 2, *fphdc, hdc 4; rep from * to last 3 sts; fphdc, hdc 2
Row 6 : hdc 5; *fphdc; hdc 4; repeat from * to end

To continue in pattern, repeat Rows 2-6 as many times as required for the width you want the scarf to be.  I repeated only once for 6” - don’t forget there is a border to go on both sides.

Pattern:

Row 1:  With 5mm (H) hook, loosely chain 170 sts.  If you find you chain a little tightly, don’t be afraid to go up a hook size for the chain then go back to a 5mm (H) for the rest of the scarf.  Join the chain to the beginning chain to form a loop, being careful not to twist the chain.  Now continue working in rounds, do not join at the end of each row - place a stitch marker and keep going.

Row 2:  Ch1, hdc in same st, hdc in next and every stitch around (170)

Row 3:  (begin pattern)  *fphdc, hdc 4; rep from * to end

Row 4:  hdc 3; *fphdc, hdc 4; rep from * to last 2 sts, fphdc in next st; hdc in next st

Row 5:  hdc 1; *fphdc, hdc 4; rep from * to last 4 sts, fphdc, hdc 3

Row 6:  hdc 4; *fphdc, hdc 4; rep from * to last st; fphdc

Row 7:  hdc 2, *fphdc, hdc 4; rep from * to last 3 sts; fphdc, hdc 2

Row 8:  hdc 5; *fphdc; hdc 4; repeat from * to end

Repeat Rows 4-8 once for roughly 6” width in total, or stop when you feel the scarf is wide enough.

Border:  

Row 1: Hdc around in 3rd loop of each stitch from prev row. (See Pattern Notes ) Join to beg hdc.

Row 2: Sl st loosely in each stitch around.

Row 3: Leaving the slip stitch intact, and working in the tops of the stitches behind it, so that
you always have that line of sideways V’s going around, hdc in next stitch and every stitch around. Join to beg hdc.

Row 4: Sl st again around the edge. Fasten off.

Note: Don’t work the slip stitch rows too tightly or you will lose the stretch in the edges of the scarf.

Attach the yarn to the chain side of the scarf where you began.

Next Row:  Ch1, hdc in the same stitch as ch 1; hdc around; join to beg hdc.

Repeat Rows 1-4 of the Border as you did on the other side.

Fasten off and weave in ends.
