Cloud Scarf Free Crochet Pattern

May 1, 2012By 45 Comments

I was in a scarf making mood and playing around with a cute pattern when I had the idea to  make a scarf that would look like clouds in the sky. Hope you like it!

This is a fairly short scarf, if you desire a longer scarf start with a longer starting chain. The difference between the lighter weight simply soft and the thicker Homespun provides the definition and cloud-like nature.  

NOTE: To really get this fluffy look you need to use homespun or similar yarn

Materials

1 skein light blue Simply Soft

1 skein Homespun white

G hook

K Hook

Gauge: not needed

With G hook and light blue chain 85.

Round 1: YO twice and Triple crochet (trc) in 5th ch from hook. Triple in each ch. 5 triple in end ch, and continue around the other side with a triple in each chain, make 4 triples in the end and join in 4th ch of first triple. Switch to white and K hook.

Round 2: Ch3 (counts as dc), dc and ch 1 in same space, (2dc, ch1) in each triple all the way around the scarf. Join in 3rd ch of beginning ch3.

Round 3: Ch 3, dc in each dc around, including  ch1 spaces. Finish off and weave in ends.

UPDATE: We made a few more in fun colors too! The first I did half of the last row in Homespun Ebony, the rest in Homespun Wildfire (Black simply soft to start) 

Wyld Fire and Ebony Wild fire and Ebony

Then I tested out what would happen if I used a Size H hook on the Simply Soft. The scarf is a bit wider and longer but just as curly! Used scraps so not sure the colors – beige Simply Soft and two shades of purple in Homespun (the darker purple is Grape)

  8. Sharon Haas says:

    On the last round it says dc in each space around including ch 1 spaces. Where are the other spaces or is it dc in each dc around?

    • Corrected! Thanks for bringing that to our attention Sharon! Yes, dc in each dc space and the chain 1, no other unspecified spaces there…not sure what I was thinking when I wrote that lol. Shows why we need some pattern testers!!

    I did the 85 ch and the triple crochets in the first chain tot he end…then I did the 5tr in end ch and then I continued around with a tr in each chain and did 4 tr in end etc…..but even with the next rows..it just doesn’t seem to make a long scarf like in the pictures……I like the width already with the tr and then the next row of 2dc and ch 1 in each tr and then I’m on the last dc round….but it just doesn’t seem like a long scarf at all…am I doing something wrong (I see it lengthens as I did the next round but I don’t really want it any wider….any thought?

    • I’m sorry it isn’t as long as you’d like. This one really wasn’t that long. You can always start with a longer chain, I hate that you would have to pull it back out but that is really the only way to get length without width on this one. Ch out till it is slightly shorter than you want as there isn’t much length added with the rounds.

      • Rose says:

        if I make a longer chain, should I chain in groups of 5 so it would come out or???thank you…I thought about that…I just wasn’t sure how long it should have been …mine measures about 19 inches (stretched)….does that sound about right…it is a very pretty pattern though..thank you for helps….

        • It doesn’t really have to be in increments of anything. It is basically a large oval. The ripple effect comes from the change in yarn. To answer your second question at the same time, yes, there were just 2 rows of the second color pictured here. The difference was the thin yarn versus the thick yarn. If you get done with your two rows and think it needs to be bigger you can always add to it. That is my favorite part of crochet, adjusting till it is just how I want it.

      • Rose says:

        one last question…after I change colors, just 2 more rounds?…(2dc,ch1) in each triple all the way around…and then the last round is the dc in each dc and ch1 space……………..that is the complete scarf?…thank you…just wanted to be sure…thank you for your help….you can post your answers here if you want or email…
