Northwoods Skinny Scarf Free Pattern

An Original Design by Sandi Marshall


This is a narrow style scarf with a Northwoods stitch design. The Northwoods stitch pattern creates a light textured look.

Materials Used In This Example
Worsted weight yarn in the following color:
4 oz. Red Heart Fiesta Yarn-Meadow Color No. 6661 (light green with white and copper color speckles)
US size I hook

Finished Size: 4 inches wide x 48 inches long

Gauge: 4 rows = 1 inch, 4 sc = 1 inch
Note: Individual gauge is not crucial on this project. Gauge is given in case you want your scarf to be exactly 4 inches wide, as in the example.

Note: So that your beginning edge will not look too loose, you may want to make your starting chain with a smaller hook (size G or H) then switch to the larger size I hook for row 1 and the rest of the scarf rows.
To Begin: Chain 13.
Row 1: sc in 2nd ch from hook, sc in ea ch across. (12 sc)
Row 2: ch 1, sc in back loop only of ea of first 2 sc, (sc in both loops of next sc, sc in back loop only of next sc) 4 times, sc in back loop only of ea of last 2 sc.
Row 3: ch 1, sc in back loop only of ea of first 2 sc, (sc in both loops of next sc, sc in front loop only of next sc) 4 times, sc in back loop only of ea of last 2 sc.
Remaining Rows: Repeat rows 2 and 3, consecutively, until desired length is reached. I crocheted 177 rows for a scarf that is 48 inches in length. The length can vary according to your individual preference.
When finished, end off. Weave in ends.
(Optional) Add fringe to the ends, if desired.
