Textured Waves Scarf ~ free crochet pattern by Jessie At Home

Textured Waves Scarf
Crochet Pattern
Intermediate Skill Level
Designed by Jessie Rayot

This spectacular scarf has a similar look to short rows, without using short rows! Instead, stitches of different heights are used to make the growing and shrinking rows. Three color ways of Lion Brand Textures are used in this scarf, though you could also use 3 skeins of the same colorway and get a more muted, yet still very nifty, effect. So, grab your Lion Brand yarn and hook and get ready for the colder weather.

  1. Jessie,
    I’m unclear about adding a “chain 1” before I turn the row and start sc. It doesn’t say to but my edge is coming out jagged. Then do I finish the row in the top of the beginning “chain 3” from the previous row? It’s such a pretty scarf, I really want it to work. Thanks for any help you can give me.

    • If you want to ad a ch 1 to the rows that start with a sc, you can. Yes, the ch-3 counts as a st, so it’s the last st you work into on those rows.

  2. I’m happy to report that I’ve successfully made the scarf! However, since I have no social media account, so please allow me to describe my finished scarf. It turns out to be a great way to use all my leftover yarns for every wave, interspersed with sky blue and baby blue colors, the starting half and ending half sections are in dark blue. I make no fringes because I like my scarf without any fringes (strange maybe, but it’s true!) Once more, thank you for the pattern!
