I love how silk scarves tied around the neck have made a come back, so I thought it would be fun to make a quick crocheted version. The fun thing about this pattern is that you can modify it in so many ways and it’s so easy to crochet! Make it longer by simply crocheting for more rows to create a trendy, long, skinny scarf. As usual, you can see the free pattern below. 🙂 I’ve also included the ad-free printable in the Mamas Maker Membership library (here). If there’s enough interest, I’ll add it to Etsy too. 🙂
These are great to have around in the spring and summer months as a fun little accessory! And this “neckrchief” is soooo easy to make! I love how it looks with the color changing Ombre Mandala Yarn as it adds interest without having to do any fancy stitching. If you’ve never used this yarn, it’s soooo good. It’s super soft, so it’s comfy to wear it around your neck. I’d even feel good about using it for baby blankets, or just about anything close to the skin. By the way, all you need to know for this pattern is how to double crochet.
Basically, you will be crocheting a skinny rectangle while making increases and decreases on either end to make the pretty shape. Once you’ve worked a few rows in, you won’t even have to think about the pattern as it’s just a two row repeat!
While silk scarves are a larger square type shape, if you were to make that shape with this crocheted version, it would become too bulky to tie around the neck as pictured. I found that this little bias rectangle shape was the best shape to give you that look of a light, tied silk scarf. Isn’t it cute?
So let’s get to the pattern!
Description: This perfect little neck scarf is so nice to wear no matter the weather. It adds understated style to any outfit and can be worn around the neck or even wrapped on a bag handle. It’s easy to make it longer if you like the look of the long skinny scarves. Have fun!
