Go with The Flow Super Scarf - Free Crochet Pattern | Red Heart Joy Creators Super Scarves Blog Hop

If you follow the trend in the crochet world, you probably know that the super scarves are really hot right now! Super Scarves are regular scarves, but wider and longer as the traditional ones. 

I hope you will enjoy my Go with The Flow Super Scarf! I love wearing this scarf! It is so soft! So luxurios! How about the texture? Pretty, isn't it?

Go with The Flow Super Scarf - Free Crochet Pattern





UPDATE 11/05/2016: A matching hat pattern is now available! Click here for the Go with the Flow Hat!

The "Go with the flow" Super Scarf  pattern is my contribution to Red Heart Joy Creators Super Scarf Blog Hop. You can find the schedule at the end of this post. And if you would like to know more about the Joy Creators Program click here


Many thanks to Red Heart Yarn for providing the yarn used for this pattern!


"Go with The Flow" Super Scarf Pattern   



This scarf is worked lengthwise, that means that the foundation chain will determine how long the scarf will be. That also means that you will not have to turn your work hundreds of time. :)



Flat measurement without blocking: approx. 9.5" [24cm] wide x 84" [215 cm] long, excluding fringe

For a longer scarf start with more foundation chain stitches.
For a wider scarf add more rows in the pattern repeat.

Multiple: 2 (add 1 chain more for the foundation chain)

Materials used:
- 4 skeins of Red Heart Chunky Soft, colorway “Seafoam” (yarn weight: bulky 5)
 (Note: From the 4th skein I have used only a small amount of yarn).
- 10 mm crochet hook (The yarn used calls for an 8 mm crochet hook, but I have used a larger hook size to obtain a nice drape)
- yarn needle
- scissors

Craftsy

Gauge: 8 sc = 10 cm or 4 inches

Stitches, Terms (US) and Abbreviations used:
- ch: chain
- sc: single crochet
- dc: double crochet
- st: stitch
- back bump of chains. See my picture tutorial  for the back bump of chains.
- csdc: chainless starting double crochet.  (Note: To avoid gaps on the edge, I have used the csdc instead of ch3 at the beginning of rows. If you are not familiar with the csdc, you can watch this VIDEO TUTORIAL by Moogly to learn how to do it.  Or you can use the traditional ch3 if you prefer that way.)

Special Stitches: 

By working the variations of the crossed double crochet stitch shown below, you will get stitches, which although crossed, are not entangled with each other. One crossed double crochet is made of 2 dc sts!

1) Back Cross Double Crochet (bcr): sk 1 st, work 1 dc into the next st, 1 dc back into skipped st going behind the last dc just made.

For the stitch tutorial of the bcr see the photo collage at row 3 in the pattern below.
You can also watch this VIDEO TUTORIAL from Crochet Cabana to learn how to Back Crochet Double Crochet. )

2) Front Cross Double Crochet (fcr): sk 1 st, work 1 dc into the next st, 1 dc back into skipped st going in front of the last dc just made, so as not to catch it

(For the stitch tutorial of the fcr see the photo collage at row 4 in the pattern below! I have not found a video tutorial for exactly this way of doing the front cross double crochet. All the tutorials out there are for crossed double crochet made out of stitches that are entagled with each other. I hope my photo tutorial will help you! 
I have noticed that it was easier for me to work the front cross double crochet inserting the hook into the skipped stitch from back of the work to the front

Note
For  joinining a new skein of yarn, I have used the >>Russian Joining Method without a visible knot << See this VIDEO TUTORIAL by Hectanooga 1 on YouTube. 


Written instructions:
Start with 173 chains.
Row 1: Work entire row into the back bump of starting chains: 1 sc in 2nd ch from hook and 1 sc in each ch across. (172 sc) 

Row 2
: ch1 (does not count as a st), turn; 1 sc in first sc and 1 sc in each sc across. (172 sc)

Row 3 (back cross double crochet row): ch 3 or csdc (will count as the first dc), turn, 1 dc in next sc, work bcr sts across the row to the last 2 sts, ending the row with 1 dc into each of the last 2 sts.
(You will have 84 crossed sts total between 2 dc sts at the beginning and 2 dc at the end of the row.)

Row 4 (front cross double crochet row): ch 3 or csdc (count as first dc), turn, 1 dc in next sc, work fcr sts across the row to the last 2 sts, ending the row with 1 dc into each of the last 2 sts.
(You will have 84 crossed sts total between 2 dc sts at the beginning and 2 dc at the end of the row.)
How to crochet the Front Cross Double Crochet - Tutorial on myhobbyiscrochet.com
As you can see in the picture no.4 of the photo collage above, when alternating a row of back cross double crochet (row 3) with a row of front cross double crochet (row 4), you get a braid kind of look (when rotating the scarf to the vertical). If you work correctly, the fcr sts should align with the bcr sts!

Rows 5 and 6 (single crochet rows): ch 1, turn, 1 sc into same st and 1 sc in each st across the row. (172 sc)

Rows 7- 18: repeat rows 3 - 6. 
Basically you will alternate 2 rows of single crochet sts with 1 row of back cross sts + 1 row of front cross sts, ending with 2 rows of sc sts.

Fasten off. Weave in the ends.

Adding fringe: 
(To learn how to make fringe, watch this video tutorial by Yarnspirations on YouTube.)
Cut lengths of yarn 15" (38 cm) long. Taking 2 strands together, knot into fringe evenly across each end of scarf. ( I have added  13 knots this way: 1 knot on the edge for each double crochet row, and 1 knot in the middle of 2 sc rows.)
Trim fringe evenly.
