Free Pattern: Sleevy Scarf

So while I like the Ribbed SleevoScarf for what it is, what I really wanted to capture was the luxurious decadence of the overindulgent scarf MsNovak had sent me. Plus it keeps getting colder here in NY, so you need sleeves AND a scarf. This weekend I made a much wider, much longer version so you can wear it as sleeves and a scarf or just a super big scarf.

Here’s the pattern for the Sleevy Scarf:

Materials:
Aprox. 4.5 skeins of Loops and Threads Charisma (around 490 yards of Bulky weight yarn).
Tapestry Needle
10mm Crochet Hook

Gauge:

3″ x 4″ = 5 stitches x 7.5 rows

Abbreviations:

CH: Chain

FHDC: Foundation Half Double Crochet

HDC: Half Double Crochet

Sizing:

This pattern is much looser than the Ribbed SleevoScarf. It was made for someone 5′ 8″ tall who wears a large, but could be considered more of a one size fits all pattern. BUT if you are making this for someone much shorter, you may want to make this a few stitches shorter. If they are really skinny, maybe knock off 2 or 3 rows. I’ll ask one of my short and skinny friends to try it on and will post a sizing update in a few days.

Dimensions: 89 inches long x 9.5 inches wide at neck. Since this is ribbed, it has a lot of stretch, but unlike the Ribbed SleevoScarf, the Sleevy Scarf does not have negative ease.

Pattern:

Row 1:  CH 2 (Counts as first HDC here and throughout), 149 FHDC, turn (150)

(The easier version of Row 1 if you are afraid of FHDC: Ch 151, HDC in back hump of the third chain from hook, HDC in the back hump of each chain across to end, turn (150))

Row 2: CH 2, skip first stitch, 149 HDC BLO across, turn (150)

Rows 3-17: Repeat row 2

Row 18: CH 2, fold right sides together, slip stitch through both loops of turning chain from opposite side (foundation row).
You will now be working on the opposite side (foundation row). [Insert hook in back loop, yo, insert hook in back loop on other side of work (your 17th row), yo, pull up a loop, yo, pull through all loops on hook], repeat for 15.25” (31 stitches including chain).
Turn right side out, you will now be working into your 17th row only. Work HDC in BLO until 15.25” (31 stitches) left. Turn inside out and fold right sides together. [Insert hook in back loop, yo, insert hook in back loop on other side of work, yo, pull up a loop, yo, pull through all loops on hook], repeat to end.

Weave in the ends and consider using Mary Jane Hall’s tip to secure the ends after you weave them in.

Wear as a scarf until your arms get cold, then put on your sleeves too.

Free Pattern: Ribbed SleevoScarf

I’ve been going out on the weekends a lot with a t-shirt and super fun oversized ribbed knit scarf with the most overindulgent fringe ever. MsNovak  sent me this amazing scarf during the summer’s Seasonal Scarf Swap. I think it’s my favorite scarf EVER. So some of these times when I’ve been going out in my t-shirt and scarf it’s been kind of cold. I kept playing with the scarf and wrapping it around my arms like a sleeve. I realized what I really needed was a multi-purpose scarf that could be used as sleeves when needed. I had seen pictures of some scarves turned shrug and browsed through some patterns, but they all seemed more like summer patterns, so I made one up.

Here’s the pattern for my Ribbed SleevoScarf:

Materials:
Just over 2 skeins of Loops and Threads Charisma (around 230 yards of Bulky weight yarn).
Tapestry Needle
10mm Crochet Hook

Gauge:

5″ x 5″ = 8 rows x 9 stitches

Abbreviations:

CH: Chain

HDC: Half Double Crochet

Sizing:

Pattern has negative ease and is tight and stretches to fit a size Medium/Large for someone 5’6″-5’9″.

For a Small, do 1 or 2 less rows. For a larger size, add 1 or two rows (or more for even larger size or looser fit). For a SleevoScarf for someone shorter, for each inch, reduce by 2 stitches

Dimensions: 53.5 inches long and 8 inches wide at the unseamed center. The SleevoScarf does have a lot of stretch.

Pattern:

Chain 98

Row 1:  HDC in back bump of third chain and in each chain across [97]

Row 2: Ch 2 (does not count as first stitch), turn, HDC through both loops in first stitch, HDC in back loop only across to last stitch, HDC through both loops for last stitch.

Row 3: Repeat row 2 until you have 13 rows.

Finish off leaving a long tail to sew the first arm. I used mattress stitch to sew the arms, but you may want to use a stitch with more stretch. Fold the top of the scarf to the bottom row of the scarf and sew 21″ for the first arm. Try on to make sure it fits, you may want to sew it a little more or take out some stitches. Sew the second arm. Weave in the ends.

Wear as a scarf until your arms get cold, then wear as sleeves.

I am currently working on two other versions, in Worsted weight and Bulky weight yarn, that you can wrap around your neck and wear as a scarf and sleeves at the same time. Be on the lookout for those patterns soon.
