THE MORNING TEA SCARF PATTERN

Little girl at the playground wearing a scarf

Do you hate having to tie both ends of a scarf to keep it from falling off? It ends up being bulky and uncomfortable right? Well, this pattern was designed to eliminate the need for a knot! There is a loop on one end that easily opens to insert the other half of the scarf, creating a flat surface while still keeping your neck nice and warm!

Scarf Back

This scarf method is especially easy to adjust for children and holds up well while they play! My daughter did not mind the scarf at all while she was at the playground. It is wide enough to fold the edges down to keep extra warm or unfold the edges to cover their little faces when it is really cold outside.

Scarf

I call it the Morning Tea Scarf because the design and colors make me think of a scarf that I would wear on a cold day to brunch while having a hot cup of tea! This pattern can work for both boys and girls and the flowers are an optional add-on.

Materials Needed:

  • size H 8 – 5 mm hook
  • 2 skeins of worsted yarn
  • measuring tape
  • tapestry needle

 

Abbreviations:
ch – chain
sc – single crochet
sl st – slip stitch
sc2tog – single crochet


decrease:
Step 1: Insert your crochet hook into the next stitch in the row.
Step 2: Yarn over.
Step 3: Pull the yarn through the stitch on your crochet hook. You should now have two stitches on your crochet hook.
Step 4: Insert your crochet hook into the next stitch in the row.
Step 5: Yarn over.
Step 6: Pull the yarn through the first stitch on your crochet hook. You should now have three stitches on your crochet hook.
Step 7: Yarn over.
Step 8: Pull the yarn through all three stitches on your crochet hook.

Gauge:

using the moss stitch
9 st = 4 inches
8 rows = 4 inches

Notes:

  • I used two different colors of worsted yarn to make the scarf chunkier and combining my favorite colors.
  • The yarn I used: Lion brand touch of alpaca and premier yarn.
  • Be familiar with the Moss stitch and Mollie Flowers

 

Pattern:
with two strands of yarn held together.
Ch. 20
Row 1 sc in the second chain from the hook and to the end. Ch. 2, turn (18)
Row 2 sc in the 2nd st, ch1, *sc in the next st, ch 1, repeat *. The last sc
should be worked into the space between the ch 2 and the sc from the
previous row. Ch.2, turn.
Row 3 repeat row 2 until the scarf measures 22 inches long. Ch.2, turn.

Starting the loophole decrease next.

  • Sc2tog, ch 1, sc in the next 5 st, sc2tog on the last two st. Ch 2, turn.
  • Sc in the 2nd st, ch1, *sc in the next st, ch 1, repeat *… Ch 2, turn. (7)
  • Sc2tog, sc in the next 3, sc2tog (5)
  • Sc in the 2nd st, ch1, *sc in the next st, Ch 1, repeat * (5)


Mark this last row with a stitch marker or piece of yarn to help
remember to measure starting here.
You will continue the moss stitch until the loop strap reaches 8.5 inches long.
(It was about 24 rows for me.)

Fasten off and leave a long tail to sew what will be the opening for the scarf to go through.

Mollie flowers:

The edges of the scarf will naturally want to fold over which makes it double up around the neck to keep extra warm and it looks great!
