I had accidentally published this crochet scarf pattern yesterday while editing it. I apologize if any emails where accidentally sent to whoever is following me.
This crochet scarf is designed with the same 3D stitch as the Falling petals Afghan, The Rose Petals Scarf! All of you loved the stitch, so I decided to design another project with it. I hope you like it.
This one is a triangle scarf. If anyone is interested in an infinity scarf in the same stitch pattern, just let me know. I will be happy to write it up.
The Design Process
I did not want to make a regular scarf with this stitch as I thought it could look like a blanket wrapped around your neck. So I decided to go for a triangle scarf on which the texture would look great.
Converting the stitch pattern into a triangle wasn’t that hard but once my triangle grew, I hit a roadblock. It was getting too long but not wide enough to wrap around your neck.
I first thought I might have to turn it into a triangle cowl but then it struck me! You will find out how I worked around this when you make the scarf :). Enjoy!

Crochet Scarf Pattern
Worsted weight yarn. I used Lion Brand Wool-Ease in color Gold.
Hook H(5 mm).
Tapestry needle to weave in the ends.
A piece of cardboard to make tassels.
The triangle is 55 inches wide and 25 inches high.
6 Pattern Repeats= 7 inches
Around 700 Yards including the tassels
fpdc-front post double crochet
V st: (1 dc, ch 2, 1 dc) worked into the same st.
Shell St: (3 dc, ch 2, 3dc) worked into the same ch-2 space.
Front post double crochet (fpdc): You can see a tutorial here.
1. 1 V-st completed at the end of Row 1
Row 1: Ch 5 (counts as 1 dc+2 ch here), 1 dc in the 5th ch from hook. ——1 V-st
2. 1 shell with dc st on either side- Row 2
Row 2: Ch 3 (counts as a dc here and throughout), shell into the ch space of the V-st, 1 dc into the same ch space.——–1 Shell+ 2 dc
3. Row 3 completed- 3 V-sts
Note: For the following V- st rows, instead of working a beginning ch 3 for a dc, a ch 4 is worked as that seemed better for the drape of the scarf.
Row 3: Ch 6( counts as 1 dc and ch 2 here and throughout), 1 dc in the same st as ch 6 (first V-st made), 1 V-st in the ch-2 space of the shell, 1 V-st on top of beginning ch-3, turn. ——-3 V-sts
4. Row 4 completed
Row 4: Ch 3 (counts as a dc here and throughout), shell in the next ch-2 space, 1 fpdc in the next dc (the second leg of the V-st), 1 fpdc in the next dc, shell in the next ch-2 space, 1 fpdc in the next 2 dc, shell in the next ch-2 space, 1 more dc into the same ch-2 space, turn.——– 3 Shells
5. Row 5 completed
Row 5: Ch 6, 1 dc in the same st as ch 6 ( first V-st made), 1 V-st in the ch-2 space of the next shell and each shell across to end, 1 V-st on top of beginning ch-3. You will be skipping a lot of stitches to work your V’s and that is what makes your shell stitches pop and look like petals.———5 V-sts
Row 6: Ch 3, shell in the next ch-2 space, 1 fpdc in the next dc (the second leg of the V-st), *(1 fpdc in the next dc, shell in the next ch-2 space, 1 fpdc in the next dc), repeat from * until 1 V-st is left, 1 fpdc in next dc, shell in the next ch-2 space, 1 more dc into the same ch-2 space, turn.——– 5 Shells
Repeat Rows 5 and 6 until you have completed 17 shell rows or total 34 rows. The number of V-sts and shells will increase by 2 every row.
6. Adding an extension to your triangle at the beginning of Row 35
7. Adding an extension at the end of Row 35
8. Sl st to top of ch-3 of the V-st and fasten off
Note: In the next row, you will add an extension to either side of the triangle. This is to add to the width of the triangle without adding more height.
Row 35: Ch 14, 1 dc in 7th ch from hook (1 V-st made), sk 3 ch, V- st in next ch, sk 3 ch, 1 V-st in the first dc, 1 V-st in the ch-2 space of the next shell and each shell across to end, 1 dc on top of beginning ch-3, ch 5, sl st to the top of the beginning ch-3 at the same point where your worked the dc, see pic 7 above ( a V-st completed with working yarn at base of the V-st), ch 14, turn, work 1 dc in 7th ch from hook (1 V-st made), sk 3 ch, V- st in next ch, sk 3 ch, sl st to the top of the ch-3 of the next V-st (Pic 8), do not turn, fasten off.———39 V-sts
9. Shells worked into the extension, Row 36.
Row 36: Working on the same side, sl st into the first V-st, ch 3 (counts as a dc), shell in ch-space of the V-st, 1 fpdc in next dc, *(1 fpdc in the next dc, shell in the next ch-2 space, 1 fpdc in the next dc), repeat from * until 1 V-st is left, 1 fpdc in next dc, shell in the next ch-2 space, 1 more dc into the same ch-2 space, turn. ———-39 shells
Repeat Rows 35 and 36 one more time. ——45 shells
Row 39: Ch 3, 1 V-st in the ch-2 space of the next shell and each shell across to end, 1 dc on top of beginning ch 3.——–45 V-sts +2 dc
Row 40(Last Row): ch 1, 1 sc in the same st as ch 1, 4 sc into the ch-2 space of each V-st across to end, 1 sc on top of beginning ch-3, fasten off.
Making the Tassels
10. Take a piece of cardboard 4 1/4 inches long and wrap the yarn around it 50 times.
11. Pull a 12-inch strand of yarn through the winding and knot twice at the top.
12. Cut the yarn along the opposite side
13. Take another 12-inch strand and make a knot a little below the top knot.
14. Trim the excess from the strand you just tied but leave the top 2 strands for attaching to the scarf.
Fasten off and weave in any tails left.
15. Pull the tails through the tassel
2. Attach the tassels to the three corners. Use the tails left to tie them on to the scarf, pull the tails through the tassel and then trim it to the size of the rest of the strands.
