5 Balls (any color – see below) Princess Pearl Crochet Cotton, Size 5
1 Steel Crochet Hook, No. 3


These instructions call for a scarf measuring about 52 inches long. If a scarf only 45 inches long is wanted, exclusive of fringe, four balls of Pearl Crochet Cotton will be sufficient. A chain of 79 stitches will make a scarf about 9 inches wide. This is a good width for a scarf.

Select any color desired. All of the following colors are good: rose pink, golden orange, blue, dark lavender, brown, dark green, tan, and cream.

If desired, you can have the scarf one color and have the double border at each end another color. Some good combinations are: deep pink with a border of cream, rose pink with a border of dark green, dark green with a border of lavender, and blue with a border of golden orange.


Chain 79 sts, turn, skip 1 st (for S) * draw loop through next st, thread over, draw through 2 loops – repeat from * having 78 stitches in row – ch 1, turn.

2nd Row – 1 S in each st, ch 1, turn. Repeat 2nd row until you have 19 rows from start, ch 3, turn.

21st Row – * 1 S in eye of star, 1 S in top of star – repeat from * to end of row, ch 1, turn.

Repeat 20th and 21st rows for 3 more rows.
