You asked for a matching scarf to the brim hat pattern and here it is! The scarf has all the details (minus the buttons) plus a nifty border along the long sides of the scarf.
Matching hat pattern here.
Measurement: customize to your taste. Scarf shown is 60’ x 6” and model is 5’11.
Gauge: Gauge as shown: 4″ = 13 rows
4″ = 11 stitches across with a thick category 4. Some acrylic yarns are more thin that others even though they are in the same category.
- sc = single crochet
- special sc = start the sc stitch, pull a loop through first loop, pick up another loop and pull through the two loops on hook (works like a double crochet without a yarn over- see video). keep the end stitch tight or it will look like a hole in your finished piece.
WS= Wrong side
- 8 mm crochet hook
- 320 yards of category 4 yarn (or amount to achieve length and width you’d like). Yarn used in image is Big Twist soft yarn in violet
- Tapestry needle
Chain 19 or as wide as you’d like your scarf to be.
Row 1: in second chain from hook sc across row. 18 sts.
Row 2 (WS): turn work and work special sc across row.
Continue to alternate row 1 & 2 to desired length ending with a sc row.
Work two more sc rows. Cut yarn.
Work long side border:
Work 3 sc rows at other end then Ch 1 and turn ¼ turn. With right side facing, begin long side border. Sc in first st. *Go back into stitch and pick up a loop then insert into next stitch, and pick up another loop then draw through all three loops.*
Repeat * to * to end of row and close with a sc. Cut yarn.
To work border on opposite side you should move across to the other side just finished (so the right side is still facing you – do not turn the work) . Insert yarn in first stitch and work a sc. In same stitch begin the same border as above.
Add fringe as shown in video or in a manner you like best. I find wetting the strands after the fringe is finished and hang dry over night so they are all straight before trimming to an even length.

I designed project trackers! This is the large print version for tired eyes. So much easier than using apps, scraps of paper or a plain notebook.
Three project sizes, a handy ruler and hook guide inside the cover and plenty of rooms for notes in each pattern.

I have had bad eyesight since age 18 so large print is a godsend when you can’t see apps and dark yarn, let alone going from one to the other on a crochet-a-thon during a netflix binge.
