It took me a while to decide on a yarn that would work for turquoise. Most of the colors I saw in the store leaned more towards a teal and I wasn’t too fond of them.
I finally decided on the Premier’s Anti-Pilling Bobbin in the colorway Peacock. It is a combination of 2 solid colors and one that is a combination of those two colors.
This scarf is full of texture and wonderful drape. When designing the Turquoise Scarf I wanted something that was simple but not boring.
I used 3 of the most basic crochet stitches to make this scarf. The first few rows can be a little tricky with stitch placement, but it will all come together by the second repeat.
You will need the supplies listed below to make the Turquoise Scarf.
– One bobbin of Premier’s Anti-Pilling Bobbin or approximately 550 yards of your favorite worsted weight yarn
– I/5.5mm crochet hook
– Measuring tape
– Yarn needle
The stitches used for the Turquoise Scarf are:
Ch – Chain
Dc – Double Crochet
Sc – Single Crochet
Sk – Skip
SDc – Starting Double Crochet
Starting Double Crochet – (also known as Long Chain Double Crochet or Chainless Starting Double Crochet.) Pull up your loop to the height of your usual Double Crochet. YO, insert into the 1st St, yarn over, pull through the St, YO, pull through 2 loops, YO, pull through the remaining 2 loops.
The stitch count is listed at the end of each row.
Ch 1 counts as a stitch.
A Ch4 can be substituted for the SDc and Ch1 at the beginning of even numbered rows.
Can be made to be any length you’d like.
This pattern is available to purchase on Ravelry.
