The Kelsey crochet scarf pattern for kids is a gorgeous textured scarf that looks way more complicated than it actually is. It is a simple 1-row repeat.

The scarf pattern includes not just kids’ sizes but also includes smaller and bigger sizes up to women. It would make a great Mommy and Me accessory for twinning.

I will also be designing a hat to match the scarf soon. You can then have a complete set great for gift giving or for selling at craft fairs.

Pattern Notes

Sizes Toddler and 4 to 5 Years are grouped together and size 6 to 12 and Teen to Adult are grouped together.

 

Toddler and 4 to 5 Years

Notes

1. Stitch count for 4 to 5 years is in parenthesis. 

2. The scarf will look wider when you have worked only a few rows but will stretch and get narrower under the weight of the fabric. 

 

Ch 28 (33) You can chain any multiple of 5+3 if you want to adjust the width of your scarf. 

 

Row 1: 2 dc in 5th ch from hook (first 3 skipped chs count as a dc), ch 1, 2 dc in next st, *(sk next 3 chs, 2 dc in next ch, ch 1, 2 dc in next ch), repeat from * to last 2 chs, sk next ch, 1 dc in last ch, place a marker on this side of the fabric to indicate the RS and turn.———- 5 (6)shell repeats+ 2 dc

 

 

Note: At the end of every row from now on, you will work your last st into the top of beginning ch-2 and not into beg ch-3 as this will make your edges straight. 

 

 

Row 2: Ch 3 (counts as first dc), sk next dc, *(1 fpdc in next dc, V-st in next ch-1 space, 1 fpdc in next dc, sk next 2 dc), repeat from * until just 1 dc and beginning ch-3 is left, sk next dc, 1 dc on top of beg ch-2, turn.———5 (6)shell repeats+ 2 dc

 

Keep repeating Row 2 until your scarf is approximately 39 (53) inches long and you are on the RS or marked side of the scarf but do not fasten off.

 

The edges of the scarf will widen out due to the nature of the shell pattern. The next row with decreases will help fix that. 

 

Decrease Row

Ch 3 (counts as a dc), sk next dc, *(1 fpdc in next dc, 1 dc in next ch-1 space, 1 fpdc in next dc, sk next 2 dc), repeat from * until just 1 dc and beginning ch-3 is left, sk next dc, 1 dc on top of beg ch-2, turn.———17 (20) dc

 

Last Row

Ch 1, 1 sc in first st and each st across until just the beginning ch is left, 1 sc on top of beginning ch-2. Fasten off. 

 

Finishing the Foundation Chain Edge

We will add a couple of sc rows to the foundation chain side as well to make both the edges uniform.

Leveling Row: Slip stitch to the top of the beginning chain in the corner opposite the corner with the beginning tail. 1 sc on top of the beginning ch, 1 sc into the space under the same beginning ch, *( 1 sc in next space under 2 dc sts, a sc2tog across same space and next space under the next 2 dc sts, 1 sc in the big space under ch-3), repeat from * until 1 dc is left right under the beginning tail, 1 sc into the last dc inserting your hook under the beginning tail, turn.———17 (20) dc

 

Last Row: Ch 1, 1 sc in first st and each st across until just the beginning ch is left, 1 sc on top of beginning ch-2. Fasten off. 

 

Weave in any tails left on the back of the scarf.
