The Halcyon Scarf

The simple textured pattern of The Halcyon Pattern Collection has become my favorite stitches to crochet! I am obsessed and I can’t stop making it! I have already shared with you the patterns from this collection, The Halcyon Beanie and Cowl!

Today, I am going to share with you my newest design — The Halcyon Scarf! So, like the other two patterns from the collection, The Halcyon Scarf pattern is worked using single crochet and half double crochet slip stitch stitches. This two-row repeat scarf pattern is just fun to make! It is also a one cake/skein wonder project and absolutely works up pretty quickly!

For this project, I used the Caron Cakes in Faerie Cake (approximately 386 yards). You can definitely use any worsted weight (#4) yarn for this pattern. I haven’t tried it yet but I believe, any yarn weight will be great for this pattern. You can easily modify this scarf pattern by adjusting to the size you prefer. To make it shorter/longer, you can deduct/add some rows, and follow the increasing/decreasing pattern.

I am so excited so let’s get started!

  3. The beginning ch 1 and ch 2 DO NOT count as a stitch.
  4. Numbers in ( ) at end of row indicate the number of stitches in that row.
  5. I recommend using stitch markers to mark the beginning/end of the shawl. Remember to move stitch markers as you progress.
  6. If you’re not familiar with the Half Double Crochet Slip Stitch (Hslst) stitch, watch this video.
  7. If you’re struggling with Half Double Crochet Slip Stitch 2 Together for the decreases, you can replace it with Half Double Crochet 2 Together (HDC2Tog).
