Red Heart Super Saver Ombre yarn...have you gotten your hands on any yet?! If not, you will want to track it down either in-store or online because it. is. beautiful! The moment I got this 'Sea Coral' colorway, inspiration hit! I have been waiting patiently for "cold weather pattern season" to get underway... and now today's free crochet pattern is the Petals Mod Scarf. Keep reading for the free pattern :)
As you can see from the photo above, this ombre yarn transitions seamlessly from a bold, vibrant coral color to a softer tint of the same hue. The yardage is generous (482 yards) and this 100% acrylic yarn will make durable and washable pieces. Red Heart Super Saver Ombre comes in 12 different colors so you can choose whether you want to make a bright and summery scarf or something a little more muted for the coming fall weather!
The Petals Mod Scarf is a slightly softer version of my other mod scarf patterns, with a rounded edge and fluttery border. I considered adding fringe along the border as well, but I decided to keep it as is. If you add it to yours be sure to show me pictures! You could also add pom poms to tassels like I have in the past to my other Mod Scarf patterns :)
There is definitely enough yarn from my skein left over to make a hat pattern, so as the weather starts to cool down keep an eye out for a hat to complement this scarf ;)
One skein (slightly less) of Red Heart Super Saver Ombre (I used 'Sea Coral') - or approx. 375 yards of a comparable worsted weight yarn
J/6.0mm crochet hook (I used Clover Amour)
Stitch marker (at least one)
Abbreviations (written in U.S. terms):
sl st: slip stitch
HDC: half double crochet
HDC2Tog: half double crochet two together
11 sts x 9 rows = 4" square in HDC
Length (approx.) = 14.5"
Width (approx.) = 64"
ch sts at the beginning of rows do not count as a stitch
I recommend using a stitch marker as you work to help with your row count. I used one stitch marker and moved it along the length of my piece as I worked, marking the rows that had no increases or decreases (i.e. every third row)
Row 1: HDC in the second ch from the hook and HDC across (2). Turn
Row 2: ch 1, 2 HDC in first st, HDC across (3). Turn
Row 3: ch 1, HDC across (3). Place stitch marker. Turn
Row 4: ch 1, 2 HDC in first st, HDC across (4). Turn
Row 5: ch 1, HDC across, 2 HDC in last st (5). Turn
Row 6: ch 1, HDC across (5). Place stitch marker. Turn
Row 7: ch 1, HDC across, 2 HDC in last st (6). Turn
Row 8: ch 1, 2 HDC in first st, HDC across (7). Turn
Row 9-62: Repeat Rows 3-8 nine more times. Row 62 will have a total of 43 sts across.
Row 63-67: ch 1, HDC across (43). Turn
Row 68: ch 1, HDC2Tog, HDC across (42). Turn
Row 69: ch 1, HDC across, HDC2Tog in last two sts (41). Turn
Row 70: ch 1, HDC across (41). Place stitch marker. Turn.
Row 71: ch 1, HDC across, HDC2Tog in last two sts (40). Turn
Row 72: ch 1, HDC2Tog, HDC across (39). Turn.
Row 73: ch 1, HDC across (39). Place stitch marker. Turn
Rows 74-127: Repeat Rows 68-73 nine more times. Row 127 will have a total of 3 sts across.
Row 128: ch 1, HDC2Tog, HDC (2). Do not tie off, continue to edging.
I made a simple edging along the angled/curved edge of my scarf. To make this edging, ch 6 and attach with a sl st to the second row from where you last crocheted. Continue chaining 6 and attaching with a sl st every 2 rows along the edge until you reach the other side of the scarf. You may want to block your edging to make it the most defined.
