Open Wave Skinny Summer Scarf
This skinny summer scarf works up quick and easy. It’s perfect for the summer as it’s not too hot and can be worn with just about anything you have in your closet.
Or, wear it in the winter under your jacket. It’s easy to crochet to any length so you can wrap it around as many times as you like for the warmth you need. The pattern also provides a stitch multiple, making it easy to adjust the width as well.
The Stitch Pattern
The zig-zag stitch pattern is worked simply by making chain loops. It is a three-row repeat with two rows of chains; the first with the big loops, and the second with small spaces to bring it together. The third row is then worked in single crochets.
The size is for a small and skinny summer scarf with a measurement of only 3.5″ by 51″. But, the stitch multiple is a simple multiple of 4 + 2, making it easy to adjust the width. As for the length, simply continue until it’s long enough for you.
It’s a great pattern for children and adults to wear.
I worked this with Caron Simply Soft, a medium worsted weight acrylic yarn. It has a beautiful shine to it, making it great for summer crochet. With that said, a cotton yarn would work well too, especially in the summer as it’ll help to keep you cooler.
Originally I worked this up in an aran yarn, but the drape is better with Caron. So think soft if you plan on using a different yarn.
Blocking the Scarf
I highly recommend that you block the scarf to straighten out the stitches a bit. To block, simply wet the scarf down. Squeeze out any excess water and lay it flat to dry.
