The Design

Can you believe that it has taken me almost a year to design a “traditional” scarf. Over 25 patterns and not a single scarf that is close to a scarf you can buy at a local store that is machine made.

The Yarn

The yarn I picked for the Citrine Scarf is Bernat Baby Velvet in the color way Yolk Yellow. After comparing yarn to citrine stone beads in my local Michael’s Arts & Crafts store, this yarn was the closest match. The color has since been discontinued but obviously you can pick any color of your liking.

Supplies Needed

– 492 yards of Bernat Baby Velvet (one skein)
– I/5.5mm crochet hook
– Scissors
– Measuring tape
– Yarn needle

Stitches Used

Ch – Chain
Hhdc – Herringbone Half Double Crochet
St(s) – Stich(es)

These same stitches were used in Marshmallow – Part of the Frosting Collection, a series of FREE dishcloth patterns.

Stitch Definition

Hhdc – Herringbone Half Double Crochet: YO, insert hook in stitch, YO, pull up a loop and pull through first loop on hook, YO, pull through both loops on hook.

Pattern Notes

A stitch count has been provided at the end of each row.

Any worsted weight yarn will work.

Meeting gauge isn’t a huge issue, you’re may be wider or more narrow than mine, but that’s ok.


The Citrine Scarf pattern is available to purchase on Ravelry.

  1. Hi Trista,
    Just wondering how this yarn washes up? I was going to purchase some Bernat Velvet, but put it back because it says to wash by hand and lay flat to dry. Did you use the washing machine to wash your scarf? Did you put it in the dryer?

    1. I do wash it in the washer, on the delicate cycle. I also air dry it either folded over a hanger or laying flat (based on space). I don’t normally put my makes in the dryer. I hope this helps
