Arch Mesh Scarf

This is a good pattern for using a skein or two of some “fancy” yarn you picked up in the clearance bin or have left over from another project. The pattern works up fast and makes an open mesh scarf.

I used a 50 g ball of German yarn “Topas busse” that is 60% cotton and 40% linen. The ball was approximately 131 yards or 120 meters long and the scarf ended up to be 50 inches long and 4 1/4 inches wide using a starting chain of 15 and a G hook.

Adjust your hook size and starting chain depending on your yarn and the size of scarf you want.

Start with a starting chain of a multiple of 4 stitches plus 3. (For example, 8 + 3 = starting chain of 11; 12 + 3 = starting chain of 15; etc)

Row 1: Chain 5 (counts as first dc and ch 2), sc in 6th chain from hook, ch 2, skip 1 ch, *dc in next ch, ch 2, skip 1 ch, sc in next ch, ch 2, skip 1 ch, repeat from *, end row with dc.

Row 2: Ch 1, turn, *sc in dc of previous row, ch 2, dc in sc of previous row, ch 2, repeat from *, end row with sc in third ch of the ch 5.

Row 3: Ch 5, turn, *sc in dc of previous row, ch 2, dc in sc of previous row, ch 2, repeat from *, end row with dc.

Repeat rows 2 and 3 until scarf is desired length. Weave in ends.

As always, let me know if you have any questions or problems with the pattern.

Thank you for your consideration,

love the model! made me smile. Thankyou

I love your is a fast and beautiful pattern. I did find one problem..on row one after the last sc and chain 2, there should be a skip next chain before the repeat starts.

Thanks for sharing your talents!!

Thank you, Angie, for giving me this feedback. I will make the correction. Glad you like the pattern. 🙂

Thanks for the great pattern and for draping it across such a lovely model!

I love this pattern. I made it with a K hook and Moonlight Mohair Lion Brand Yarn with a starting chain of 15. It worked up very fast and made a beautiful gift. Thank you!

so it ive chained 15 + the 5 for the double stich but do i cout those 5 when making the single stich in the 6th chain from the needle?

Yes, count those 5 chain stitches that you added after the starting 15, then single crochet in the sixth chain.
Hope this helps and let me know if you have other questions.

Love this fast and textured pattern – thank you!

I really like this pattern &, being free, even better! I’m making it in a Red Heart “Soft” (solid) &, it lets the pattern of the stitch be seen! It gives me ideas to make another in a solid, soft, drapey yarn! It’ll be nice for a gift too.
Thank you so much! Crocheting is so relaxing while watching TV, not just being a couch potato.
Thanks again!…..
