It can be worn over the shoulders as a shawl, around the neck as a bandana scarf or even wrapped around the head for a fabulous hair scarf.

Before we get to the pattern, let’s take a moment to drool over all these Finito and Mechita color choices by Malabrigo. I’d love to see this scarf worked up in one of these yarns!

Notes

Stitches are reduced in each row by working chains and skipping stitches until the scarf reaches a rounded point at the end. Once the main section is complete, the edging is created by working specific stitches in each chain space (and dc sts along the edge) created at the beginning of each row. The scarf body will curl in on itself until the edging is complete. Block as needed to keep edges straight. Scarf is slightly asymmetrical.

Hook and yarn combo are intentional and help to achieve a loosely crocheted shawl. Watch gauge and keep stitches loose.

Scarf Body—

With CA, ch 176.

Row 1: Sc in 2nd ch from hook and in each ch across. (175 sc)

Row 2: (RS) Ch 1, turn, sc in each st across.

Row 3: Ch 3, turn, sk 2 sts, sc in next st, ch 2, sk 2 sts, sc in next st, sc in each rem st across. (170 sc)

Rows 4 – 7: Rep row 3. Stitch count reduces by 5 sc each row.

Row 8: Ch 3, turn, dc in each st across. (Stitch count is the same as previous row.)

Repeat rows 4 – 8 until scarf is reduced to a rounded point and only ch-2 loops remain, finish off.

Edging—

With dc rows facing the RS, attach CB to the corner and work [sc, 3 dc, sc] in each ch-2 sp and dc st along the reduced sides of the shawl, finish off.

Flower—

Yarn: CB

Hook size: 4.0 mm hook

Skill Level: Intermediate

Foundation Row: Ch 2 (counts as 1 sc), work 7 sc in 2nd chain from hook (8 sc total).

Note: From here, the rest of the flower is worked in three different spirals. The first works from the center to the outside, the second spiral works from the outside back to the middle, the third spiral works from the middle back to the outside. Each spiral adds another layer to the flower.

Spiral 1: (Work all sts in back loops), 2 sc in 1st sc from foundation row, [sc in next st, 2 sc in next sts] rep until circle measures 3” in diameter. (Note: Or adjust the size of the flower to use up remaining yarn after scarf is complete. Flower’s diameter will be twice as wide as spiral #1)

Spiral 2: Turn, (WS) work the following sequence on the RS in the front loops (left from spiral 1) from the outside of the spiral to the middle: [ch 2, sk 1 st, sc] around spiral.

Note: One variation of this pattern is to finish off the flower here. For a fuller look continue on and work spiral 3.

Spiral 3: Turn, (RS) work the following sequence in each ch-2 loop (left from spiral 2) from the middle of the spiral to the outside: [sc, 3 dc, sc] around spiral.

Finish off leaving 10” for sewing.

Sew flower onto longer side of shawl 10” from the edge.

The flower spirals are worked up here in different colors so you can see what it looks like at each stage: spiral 1 (purple), spiral 2 (blue), spiral 3 (fuchsia). Attach yarn to first sc made with CB and sl st in each st along edging, finish off.
