Free Pattern: Supersized See My Stitches Scarf

One of the first patterns I favorited on Ravelry was Lorraine Hern’s Bionic Wrap Scarf (pattern available on Ravelry and My PDF Patterns). Well… when I was about to pay for the pattern, I realized you needed two needles and not a hook to make this scarf. It was a knit pattern, so much for that idea. Over the months, I’ve continued to love the oversized stitch look and have been drawn back to this scarf time and time again.

The Bionic Wrap Scarf was the inspiration behind my crocheted Supersized See My Stitches Scarf which I had a blast making and LOVE wearing. I have decided this is my favorite scarf and I want to make a zillion more. It’s very simple and a lot of fun.

Supersized See My Stitches Scarf Closeup

Supersized See My Stitches Scarf Closeup


2 skeins Charisma by Loops & Threads (218 yards Bulky weight yarn, a fun bright multi color yarn is highly recommended, uses exactly all the yarn)

16mm crochet hook

Abbreviations (US terms used):

Ch = Chain

SC = Single Crochet

HDC = Half Double Crochet

FHDC = Foundation Half Double Crochet

BLO = Back Loops Only

Supersized See My Stitches Scarf Pattern:

Hold 2 strands of yarn together throughout the entire pattern.

Leave a 6.5″-7″ tail when starting, this will become part of the fringe.

Row 1: Ch 2, 95 FHDC  (super easy alternative: you can Ch 97, then 95 HDC if you are afraid of FHDC, but I really recommend FHDC)

Row 2: Ch 2, HDC in BLO

Row 3-4: repeat Row 2

Finish off leaving a 6.5″-7″ tail.

Then add the fringe.


Cut 18 13” strands.
Incorporate starting and ending ends of the scarf into the fringe so you don’t have to weave them in.
Thread 4 sets of 2 strands on the side with the ends and 5 sets of 2 strands on the other end of the scarf, push the loop in, then bring all the loops together and pull all the ends through at one time so it makes one big knot and one big fringe on each end.

Fringe Step 1:  Pull Up Loops

    Hi! How does this particular yarn feel against your skin? Is it scratchy or soft?

      I’m glad to hear it!

      The FHDC is the same as FSC – foundation single crochet, but with the extra yarn over before you start the stitch
      It looks like there’s a You Tube video on it here

      Do you have any pictures posted? I’d love to see them. What yarn did you use?.

        THANK YOU, THANK YOU for this free pattern!! I had two skeins of Charisma sitting around; I just had to get a Q hook. I watched the FHDC video and worked until I figured it out. I ONLY want to do that now.

    I downloaded your pattern and was able to do this in 1 afternoon while @ work. Love it. I also made 3 more last Sunday for all of my kids. Even my boys love their scarf. Thanks

      I’m so glad you liked it!
      I love the yarn you used. Your scarf looks great and the yarn texture made a really fun fringe. (I’m a big fringe fan)
      Now that it’s getting cold, I think I need to make some more myself.

    this pattern is exactly what i am looking for! i just bought a bunch of the charisma yarn and found your site looking for a pattern. thanks for making me learn something new :] fhdc is quite bizarre but i like it. very excited for all these scarves i’m making as presents! one question, do you know about how wide it turns out to be?

      I’m glad you like the pattern.
      I found it was painful to learn the foundation stitches, but it definitely pays off once you figure it out.
      The scarf is 4.5″ wide x 96″ long (not including the tassels).
      They do make great gifts. They’re super soft and you can make them really fast.

    Was so so so disappointed to get to the last 2 stitches and completely run out of yarn. I was able to figure out a way to use scrap yarn to finish it up without anybody being able to tell, but when you said the pattern would use all the yarn I was not expecting to need more than 2 skeins. I think it looks great with my last minute modification though. Thank you for sharing your pattern.

      I’m so sorry to hear you ran out of yarn. How tightly you’re crocheting can effect how much yarn is used. I’m glad you were able to figure out a workaround.
      Recently, when I was just a little short on another project, I took out several of the last stitches and redid them intentionally crocheting tighter and had enough yarn.

    What size is 16mm in letters? I know a size “K” hook is 6.50 mm, so I’m guessing 16 mm is huge…

    I definitely ran out of yarn right before my 4th row. Sad!. But I love it!

    This looks awesome! And I love any pattern that promotes the use of foundations stitches. 😀 I included a link to this page for a pattern roundup on my blog this morning!

    I Love the Super-sized see my stitches scarf pattern!!! Thanks!!! I found the link to your pattern on Moogly’s facebook page.
    I saw a scarf kind of like this last year, and thought “I could make this” so I didnt buy it! of course I never found the pattern until now! I am on my fourth scarf 🙂

    I, too, ran out of yarn nearly to the end of the scarf. I could probably undo and redo stitches to make it to the end but I still wouldn’t have enough for the fringe, which is my favorite part! It’s a beautiful scarf, though. Think I’ll rip out stitches and start over and make it a little shorter this time.

    Is there a way I can actually download this pattern to my computer in PD F format? It looks so easy to do.

    What were the final measurements of this scarf when it was completed?

    I needed some instant gratification and a break from a hairpin lace project. This scarf was perfect! I used Deborah Norville Serenity in “Kitty”. I have to tell you that scarves normally feel like they’re choking me…don’t know why it never dawned on me that maybe they were too wide for my liking. The size of your Supersized See My Stiches Scarf are perfect. I can let it hang, drape loosely, or wrap multiple times for warmth. I did a 2HDCtog, chain, turn and 2HDCtog at both ends so the scarf would taper down and then I added one big tassel at each end. (single strand of yarn 15X wrapped the length of a DVD case) I crochet loosely, so I started with 85 FHDC and used exactly 202 yards and my scarf width is about 5 inches and the length is about 7 feet (length measurement is just scarf, not tassels).

    Thank you so much for posting this, I’m off to search my stash for more chunky yarn!!

    I’m so glad to find this pattern. I love big hooks and it’s hard to find patterns for them. Love the scarf in the Q hook, took very little time and looks great. I’m going to try it now using my 25mm and 50mm hooks. I’ve got a large stash to play with so I can try different color and texture combinations.

    What is the color of this yarn? Where did you purchase it? I found this brand, but haven’t seen the color. Love it!

    This is such a gratifying project for the beginning hooker! I was, er, hooked! The first scarf (Charisma “Toadstool”) motivated me to learn the foundation stitch for the second scarf. For the second scarf, I mixed two different Charisma yarns with similar colorways (“Northern Lights” with “Mulberry,”) and was happy with the enriched tone. I also ran out of yarn for the last few stitches for the first scarf, and just worked solid color yarn. Lesson learned. It still gets me lots of compliments whenever I wear it. As you have mentioned, it is a very soft yarn, but it does start to get fuzzy, darn it.

    This pattern is awesome and will make great gifts!

    Quick question though, can I use super bulky yarn instead? Do you think it’ll look as good?

    Thanks for the pattern. The FHDC was very tricky but the rest came together quickly. It was my first time using a Q hook as well as working with two yarns at once. Will definitely make more!

    Hi! Sorry for the silly question, I’m still quite new at this. Does the turning chain count as a stitch? The scarf is so amazing. Thank you for sharing the pattern, I can’t wait to finish it!
