The Reversible Honeycomb Scarf - Free Crochet Pattern and Tutorial

Reversible Honeycomb Scarf - Free Crochet Pattern

Althought it looks pretty complicated, you will only need to repeat one single row to work the 3d honeycomb crochet stitch, alternatiting back crossed treble crochet stitches with front crossed treble crochet stitches within the rows.

You just need to pay attention to the stitch placement and keep checking the honeycomb columns, to not make mistakes. Once you will work a couple of rows, you will get the hang of it.

SKIL LEVEL

: Intermediate

GAUGE (for the ribbing): working with a 5.5 mm crochet hook,
14 sts (yo-slst-blo) = 4 inches (10 cm)

SIZE: approx. 70 inches (178 cm) long and unstretched/ unblocked 6” (15.5 cm) wide

You can customize the length and width of the scarf to your own liking.

For a shorter/longer scarf as in the pattern indicated, work less/ more rows in the honeycomb pattern.

For a wider scarf start with more chains, Multiple of 8 + 2 and add 1 for the turning ch.

For example, in the pattern we have 8x3 + 2 + 1 = 24 + 3= 27 sts

If you change the length or width of your scarf, you will need less/ more yarn as in the pattern indicated.

SUPPLIES:

STITCHES AND ABBREVIATIONS (US TERMS):

  • ch: chain
  • back bump of chains- See my picture tutorial here!
  • st: stitch
  • slst: slip stitch
  • sc: single crochet
  • dc: double crochet
  • tr: treble crochet

Special Stitches:

1) yo-slst = Yarn Over Slip Stitch : Yarn over (yo) and insert the hook into 2nd chain from hook; yarn over and draw the yarn through the chain (You have now 3 loops on the hook). Having the 3 loops on hook, pull/slip the first loop on hook through the next 2 loops on hook to complete a Yarn Over Slip Stitch (yo-slst). Click here for my PICTURE TUTORIAL for the yarn over slip stitch!

2) yo-slst-blo = yarn over slip stitch back loops only: work the stitch as described above, but inserting the hook only into the back loops of the stitches.

3) Variations of the Crossed Treble Crochet (groups of 4 sts) By working these variations of the cross stitch, you will get stitches, which although crossed, are not entangled with each other. This will make the pattern reversible, being beautiful on both sides.

See the Picture Tutorial in the scarf pattern below!

3.1. Crossed Back Trebles group (CB): sk next 2 sts, 1 tr in each of next 2 sts; going behind the last 2 tr just made and being careful not to catch them, work 1 tr back into the 1.st skipped st, then 1 tr into the 2.nd skipped st. (4 sts made)

3.2. Crossed Front Trebles group (CF): sk next 2 sts, 1 tr in each of next 2 sts, going in front of the last 2 tr just made and being careful not to catch them, work 1 tr back into the 1.st skipped st, then 1 tr into the 2.nd skipped st. (4 sts made)

SCARF INSTRUCTIONS:

Ribbed Edging :

Notes: Place a st marker into the top of the first st of every row! This will help count the number of total rows made and also to keep the number of stitches constant, without adding or loosing sts at the ends of the rows. Try keeping the tension of the stitches constant.

Chain 27.

Row 1: working into back bump of chains, yo-slst in 2nd ch from hook and yo-slst in each ch across, turn. (26 sts)

Row 2: ch 1, yo-slst-blo in each st across till last st, yo-slst working in both top loops of the last st, ch 1, turn. (26 sts)

Rows 3-9: Repeat as row 2

After finishing row 9, you should have 5 ribs (including the fundation).

Then start working the rows in the reversible honeycomb pattern.

Honeycomb pattern

(See the crossed stitch instructions above)

NOTE: The ch3 at beg of rows will be counted as the first dc st. To work the first CB, you will skip the first st under the ch3 and the next 2 sts.

Row 1: ch3, (CB in next 4 sts, CF in next 4 sts) x 3 times, 1 dc in last st, turn

That means you will alternate crossed back (groups of 4 sts) with crossed front (group of 4 sts) 3 times: CB, CF, CB, CF, CB, CF.

See the photo collages below showing you how to crochet the first row!

First CB completed.

After finishing row 1 you should have 3 V-s created by the crossed sts.

Rows 2: ch 3, work (CB, CF) x 3 times, 1 dc in top of turning ch3, turn

After finishing row 2, the honeycomb pattern (row 1+ row 2) should look like 3 X’s on this side (see the picture above) and like 3 diamonds on the other side. (pictured below)

A complete diamond (or X on the other side) will be made of 8 sts in width (4 of them are hidded at the back) and 2 rows in height. (See the picture below where I have highlighted the diamonds for better visual.) Now you can also see that the pattern is reversible and it's looking great on both sides of the work.

Rows 3-80: Repeat row 2.

Note: You will always start each row with CB and end each row with CF, before last dc.

Here it's how it looks after finishing row 4. (Can you see the X's?)

2.nd Ribbed Edging :

Row 1: ch1 , 1 yo-slst in first dc, 1 yo-slst in each tr st across the row, and 1 yo-slst into top of turning ch3; turn. ( 26 sts)

Rows 2-8: ch 1, yo-slst-blo in each st across till last st, yo-slst working in both top loops of the last st, ch 1, turn. (26 sts)

Last row: ch 1, slst loosely across. (Your slsts should be as wide as the yo-slsts from previous rows.) Cut yarn. Fasten off. Weave in the lose ends.

That's it! You made it! Your beautiful reversible honeycomb scarf is ready to wear! If you prefer, you can block it. I leave it the way it is.
