Do you love crochet sets?

Winter Cherry Scarf is made of two panels joined together with fringe added. It’s easy and fun to make.

If you love the Winter Cherry Scarf, then you will love my free crochet messy bun hat pattern, Em’s Hat! Both patterns use the lovely crochet post stitch texture to create a stylish crochet winter pattern set. If you hate the cold like me, this set will help keep the chill away.

The Yarn

To make this scarf pattern, I used Red Heart Super Saver Ombre. I love how the color I used, Anthracite, creates the look of different winter clouds, and then there’s the splash of pink thrown in there. It reminds me of cherry blossoms as the seasons begin to change from winter to spring. Wouldn’t this pattern be so pretty with a purple-ombre yarn?

The Winter Cherry Scarf is a free Crochet pattern on the site here, but you can also find a low cost, ad free PDF in my Ravelry and Etsy stores.

MATERIALS

  • Yarn Weight: #4 Medium Worsted Weight / Aran
  • I used one skein of Red Heart Super Saver Ombre in lovely color Anthracite (about 440m / 482 yds) for the main color and Baby Pink for contrasting color (170 m / 155 yds).
  • You will need a 6 mm [US J-10] hook, some stitch markers, scissors, tapestry needle, measuring tape and a blocking math (this is optional, but it will give your scarf a perfect finish!)

GAUGE

Gauge is not critical for this project, but if you want exact measurements:

  • 13 dc sts and 8 rows = 10 cm / 4 in square

Row 54: ch1, sc FLO in same st, sc FLO in each st across, fasten off 1st panel – 37 sts

After finishing the 2nd panel do not fasten off CC, continue to blocking and joining.

 Blocking

This part is entirely optional, but it’s absolutely worth the trouble! Yes, I know it’s boring, but … I would highly recommend doing it… Ideally, you should block the two panels before joining. You can use any method you are familiar with: washing, steam or spray. Pin the panels gently into shape, making sure that both parts are equally stretched (of same length and width) and let them dry completely.

Join

Place two panels with WS facing each other and match up the stitches of their last rows. On the RS join pieces with sl st through inner loops (through the back loops of the stitches of panel closer to you, and the front loops of the stitches of the panel further away from you). Fasten off.

AND THE FINAL TOUCH

Weave in all the ends.

Optional: Work sc edging around the edges of the CC part in the middle, placing 3 sc sts per 2 dc sts. This will make the edges more even and texture shown.

Add fringe. The one on the original design is about 13 cm (little over 5 in). That means you need to cut the fringe about 27 cm (11 in). Each fringe was made of 3 pieces of yarn held together.
