Zig the Zag Scarf Free Crochet Pattern

Zig the Zag Free Crochet Scarf Pattern From That Crafty Girl From Ohio
A new scarf for all of you just in time for the last little bits of winter.  This design is made with 3 different colors of worsted weight yarn.  You can pick any yarn of your choosing.  The pattern looks complex but in reality, it is quite simple.  Using the 3 colors help give the pattern more dimension but a single color could also be used.

I originally wrote this pattern as a woman's scarf but as I showed my friends some of my finished crochet projects, we have all concluded that this scarf could also be considered unisex. 

The pattern is also airy, it may not be the best in below 0 F temperatures but as spring is coming soon, this is a great scarf for that transitional period between winter and spring.  Or crochet it in shades of brown and red, put it up for fall.

Feel free to sell anything you make from my pattern.  If you would like to share the images from this post please feel free.  All I ask is that you link the images back to me but feel free to share away. Backlinks make the world go around.  If you do feature this pattern, please let me know in the comments so I can add your post to my sidebar.  DO NOT post the actual pattern anywhere.  Let's just help each other out, rather than stealing

To complete this scarf, we will be using the following stitches...

Chain Stitch - ch
Slip Stitch - sl st
Single Crochet  - sc
Double Crochet - dc
V-Stitch (All in the same stitch double crochet, chain, double crochet)


This particular pattern is worked in long rows rather than short rows so it may be difficult to add length.  I will attempt to explain how to do so at the end of this post.

Starting with black
Ch 234 (228+6) --> You will need the numbers in parenthesis if you plan on lengthening this scarf.

Change to grey
Row 2:  ch1, turn, sc in dc from previous round, *ch2, V -Stitch in next dc, ch2, sc in next dc, work across. Finish with a sc in the 4th ch from the last dc from the previous row,

Change to grey
Row 11:  Repeat Row 3

Change to green
Row 12:  Repeat Row 4

Change to black
Row 13:  Ch6, turn dc in each sc and V-Stitch across to the end, finishing the scarf itself.

Still Using Black
Sc around the scarf using 1 sc for each chain stitch.  The stitches do not have to be worked directly into the chains but the chains can be used as a guide to prevent bunching.  Take care to stitch over loose ends to prevent all that weaving at the end.

Enjoy your beautiful new scarf.

To Lengthen This Scarf

So those numbers in parenthesis at the top of this page, well I am going to explain those.  You should be able to add to the larger number, in multiples of 8, to lengthen this scarf.  This is a theory as I have not tried this yet.  As soon as I give it a go or get some feedback, I will let you know as soon as possible.

If you crochet this scarf, use this blog title as the hashtag (#ZigtheZagScarf) and let me know where you shared it.

As always if you find any errors in this pattern please let me know ASAP so I can work to correct them.  This pattern has not been tested and as a result, there may be errors.  I am always willing to answer any questions you have about this pattern.  If there is enough interest I will be also creating a stitch diagram for this scarf.

Pink Pineapple Doily Free Crochet Pattern

Hello and Greetings Everyone I know I haven't been around a lot to post lately but with the holidays, well everyone knows how that goes... But I am back and I have a new crochet pattern to share, it's called the Pink Pineapple Doily. The original pattern appeared in 1951 in the publication Star Book No. 87, Doilies, Doilies, Doilies.

Crochet doilies come in a variety of sizes and colors, so you can choose to match your existing

5 Interesting Non Traditional Crochet Square Patterns

I absolutely love to crochet squares.  The very first crochet pattern I ever learned by heart was the granny square.  Even now, years and years later, when I am bored and I just want to crochet for the pure joy of crochet, the granny square is my go to pattern.  I know many other crocheters out there feel the same way and that's why crocheting squares is so popular.  There are so many square patterns out there, a crocheter could never complete them all in a life time.  I decided to search up a few really awesome squares and I felt were unique but still reminded me of that classic pattern I love so much.  These are the patterns that I found.  The stained glass afghan pattern costs a $1.99 but the rest of the patterns listed here are completely free and they are featured on the blogs of other designers.  All of these designs are now additions to my crochet bucket list.
