Project Description:

Enjoy this free crochet pattern for an eyelash yarn scarf with a subtle striped design. The stripe adds visual interest to the scarf, but it isn't the first thing you notice; the eyelash yarn itself is what catches your eye. As shown, the scarf is worked in lovely shades of turquoise, blue and green.

This design lends itself well to color experiments, so feel free to change out the colors as you please. If you'd like the stripes to be more noticeable, choose colors that contrast with each other dramatically. If you'd like the stripe to remain subtle, choose colors that are different but harmonious and closely related.

Additional Scarf Photos:

I've posted an image gallery with several additional large photos of this crocheted scarf, including a close-up photo of the striped design.

Skill Level:

Easy

Materials:

Yarn:

My sample scarf was made using the following yarns:

  • Color A: Lion Brand Fun Fur in Citrus Print -- I bought 2 balls, and used approximately 2 1/3 oz of this yarn.


  • Color B: Lion Brand Fun Fur in Turquoise -- In the scarf itself, I used less than one ball of this yarn -- a bit more than 1 oz. I bought two balls because one ball was not enough to make my gauge swatch plus the scarf, however.


  • Color C: Caron Simply Soft in Blue Mint #9608 -- I used about 2 ounces of this yarn.

Yarn amounts needed are approximate. Please feel free to substitute similar yarns.

Crochet Hook:

Size P / 11.50 mm

This hook size is just a suggestion. Your way of crocheting is unique, and you may prefer to adjust hook sizes.

Other:

Tapestry Needle for weaving in ends

Finished Size:

This scarf stretches easily, and giving you a precise measurement is a bit of a challenge. When laid flat, it's approximately 70" x 4", give or take a few inches in either direction depending on whether it is stretched or not. When you actually wear the scarf, I think you could expect it to elongate a bit more.

Gauge:

Gauge is not critical for success with this project, since your scarf will be wearable even if it turns out to be a different size than my sample scarf. The most critical concern is not the fit; it is having enough yarn to complete the scarf. If your scarf turns out to be significantly larger or weightier than my sample, you risk running out of yarn.
