My sister-in-law shared this picture of a scarf recently on Facebook and she loved it. There was no direct link to a written pattern and since my sister-in-law cannot crochet I decided I would try to make the scarf for her and write up a pattern as I go. And this was the result πŸ™‚

Basic stitches, simple shaping and finishing.
14cm in width and 120cm in length
Double knitting/light worsted yarn
50gr each of
– aran (cream),
– cognac (wine red),
– beige, marron (chocolate)
Hooks & Notions:
Hook – 4.00mm (US F/5 UK 8)
Note: I used a size 6,00mm hook for the tassels
22sts x 30 rows = 10 x 10cm
Tension/Gauge is not necessary for this project to be perfect
Note: Due to the nature of this pattern – the yarn and hook used is only a suggestion and any substitute may be used. Size of finished product will vary depending on yarn and size of hook used.

CH197 (amount divided by 5 plus 2)
Tip: I used stitch markers to mark every 10 stitch. I
marked the first 5 stitches at the end of my chain row
and then every 10th stitch. I found this made it easier
to crochet and faster than having to count while
trying to keep track of the interlocking.
Work 1DC into 4th CH from hook, (first 3 CH counts
as 1st DC), then work 1 DC into next 3 CH (5DC), then
CH5, *skip 5 CH, work 1 DC into next 5 CH, CH5.
Repeat from* until end of chain.
Every row is worked as above the only difference is the
interlocking. Pull the chain through the 5CH opening
of previous row, checking that as you work, 1 set of
5DC is worked in front and the next set is worked at
the back of the previous row.
In the image below the top 5DC (red wine) is in front,
then the 5DC below is at the back (chocolate), the
beige 5DC is in front, cream 5DC is in the back and
the bottom 5DC is in the front.

I have been a crochet designer for more than 10 years. I love to think outside the box and to try and do things a bit differently. I love to learn new techniques and to challenge myself. I firmly believe that crochet should fun and evoke joy and pleasure. Creating and designing is one of my life's passions.

  1. How did you do the fringe?

  2. Fantastic!!! I Love your pattern! It was hard to wrap my mind around, so I made a swatch with 70 ch. And three colors. It worked perfectly! Thanks so much for doing the brain work on this, I saw it the other day on crochet addict. I'm going to make them for Christmas for my kids! Thanks again!

    Yes πŸ™‚ CH 197, weave through the previous strip and start the pattern.

  4. Do you weave the second chain through out the first section before you crochet the five dc and the chain fives?

  5. Author

    Hi πŸ™‚ Yes each new row is started separately by chaining 197.

    Hi πŸ˜‰
    Each new row is starting with chaining 197 and then weaving the chain through the opening of the previous row. It's like weaving a ribbon through eyelets.

    Hi πŸ™‚ Hope it helps if I explain this way: after you have completed row 1, you need to ch 197 again with a new color, and then weave the chain through the openings of row 1 as you work. Think of it as working a ribbon thru eyelets. πŸ™‚

    Hi, no unfortunately I do not have a tutorial video. Hope it helps if I explain this way: after you after completed row 1, you need to ch 197 again with a new color, and then weave the chain through the openings of row 1 as you work. Think of it as working a ribbon thru eyelets. πŸ™‚

  9. yes… how do we connect the second row… do we have to always do another 197 chains like the precious/first row?

  10. I can't figure out how to successfully connect each new row without somehow cutting the yarn somewhere. I've tried just ignoring the problem but then in each space there's a connecting tie down loop and it looks weird. Help! Please πŸ™‚

  11. I can' t figure out how to interlock them, I am stuck.

  12. Thank you for the tutorial. It looked KS so easy and really pretty. I'm going to try this.

  13. I was so thrilled to find this pattern but can't figure out how to attach them I'm sure it's so easy that's why I can't do it..uggghhhhh

  14. Do you have a video top shoe hope to connect the second color and interlock them. Ughh I'm stuck
