Crochet The Sweetheart Scarf
Hi everyone! Today I am bringing to you a new project, to Crochet The Sweetheart Scarf
This week I wanted to show you a soft and feminine winter project that I created a few weeks ago, and I absolutely love the effect it has.
It mixes the classic look of a granny square with the modern pink and grey mix of colours which I love. I think these shades look really great for winter without being too dark, and offer a great pop of colour when you want to go for a more soft and feminine look.
As always the video tutorial can be found on Youtube: Crochet Sweetheart Scarf Video Tutorial
Behind the project
I named this project The Sweetheart Scarf because it is a bit vintage and reminiscent of the Granny Square look so popular in the 1960’s. I love that vibe! Also, it is a very budget friendly project as it only requires 2 skeins of fairly reasonably priced yarn (Cygnet DK and James C Brett’s Northern Lights).
This pattern is created very simply by crocheting lots of granny squares in grey and pink, then assembling them alternating them, and sewing them together. Once they are sewed together, a shell stitch border is added all around the scarf, making it look extra feminine and pretty. I love grey and pink together, I really think these colours complement each other. These shades also go well with a lot of other colours, which is what you want when you create a scarf. I have had the opportunity to wear this scarf so much, because it is very delicate. At the same time it keeps me really warm.
Crochet The Sweetheart Scarf: Bohemian vibes
This scarf is quite long too, adding to the Bohemian vibe of the pattern. I really love Granny Squares, as they really remind me of the 1960s era. I enjoy connecting with my crochet family so please don’t hesitate to comment or send me an email.
Let me know what you think of this project, and if you want to create one yourself, and don’t forget to tag me on Instagram or Facebook with your finished project, I love seeing them.
Lots of love,

The Pattern for The Crochet The Sweetheart Scarf
Gauge: Gauge is not crucial for the completion of this project
I will be using US terms (British terms in brackets)
You will need:
1 skein of James C Brett Northern Lights in shade pink NL8, and 1 skein of Cygnet Supersoft Kiddies DK in shade Soft Grey
4 mm crochet hook
Pair of scissors
Sl st : slip stitch
SC : Single Crochet (UK Double)
DC: Double crochet (UK Treble)
Ch : chain
Pattern begins here:
To complete this scarf, you need to make 10 Granny Squares with each yarn (=20 squares in total).
Make a Granny Square:
To start, make a slip knot.
Complete rows as follows:
1: 4 ch, sl st into 1st stitch to form a ring ; 3 ch, 2 DC inside ring (=3 DC); [2 ch, 3 DC] inside ring 3 more times, 2 ch, sl st to beginning 3 ch
2: 3 ch, turn your work, 2 DC, 2 ch, 3 DC inside ch sp From previous row (= 3DC, 2 ch, 3 DC which forms a corner). [go directly into next sp, 3 DC, 2 ch, 3 DC] 3 more times, sl st to first 3 ch to join round.
3: 3 ch, turn your work, 2 DC inside space (=3 DC); [going directly into next sp 3DC, 2 ch, 3DC (=corner); going into next sp 3 DC] 4 times, sl st to join this round.
4-5: Repeat row 3, always placing 3 DC inside simple “side” spaces, and 3 DC, 2 ch, 3 DC into each corner (4 per round to form a square).
Fasten off, tidy up all loose ends.
Once you have made 10 pink and 10 grey squares, place them in a way in which they will alternate, and sew them together with pink yarn.
After they are all stitched together to form the scarf, you can begin the shell stitch border.
To make shell border:
Complete rows as follows
1: Attach pink yarn to any stitch on the scarf, 1 ch, SC into each stitch all the way around (for the corners [2 SC, 2 ch, 2 SC]).
2: 3 ch (counts as a DC), place 6 DC into same stitch (=first shell), [sk 3, 7 DC into 4th] until end of row, slip stitch to first 3 chain.
Fasten off, tidy up all loose ends.
