At the Hops Scarf - A Free Spring Pattern

Taken at the Hops Garden at Chateau LaBeaume

I love this serious...ha! However, it does a great job showing off this super simple, breezy scarf pattern made from one ball of Vanna's Glamour yarn. It's the perfect yarn to transition from Winter to Spring.

You will need:

1 ball of Vanna's Glamour yarn (Yarn weight is 2 if you want to substitute)
Size M crochet hook
Yarn needle

I made this in three different sizes to adjust for length on the short torso people, but otherwise the pattern repeats to the end of the ball. Depending on your width, start by cutting enough strands for the fringe before you start so you don't have to guess how much you will need at the end of the ball. I doubled the strands using a lark's head knot, in every other stitch with square knots at the end of each strand.


Ch 16 (18, 21), turn
Start in second chain from hook and sc across - 15 stitches (17, 20), ch 1, turn
Repeat to the end of the ball. Fasten off. Weave in ends. Attach fringe.

You can block it if you want to, but I did not.

Super easy with big results. My scarf is extra long so I can do all kinds of different knots with it. The shorter versions hit about midway down the torso if doubled and have more width. The single crochet stitches on the big hook is what gives it the lighter texture making it perfect for a Spring stroll or work accessory. Enjoy!
