5 Little Monsters: Crocheted Elemental Scarf

Crocheted Elemental Scarf

I was recently sent some yarn to try out from Delicious Yarns. They have have a new thing that they call "pairings", which they describe as unexpected curated combinations of 2 skeins of yarn, combinations you may not have thought to put together yourself. It is a fun idea to get get you to try out combinations that you may not otherwise try. I chose to try pairing #5, which included a dark green (Guava) and an aqua and white (Gummy Bear). They are available in super wash merino in fingering, sport, or worsted weight.



The colors kind of remind me of the blue of water and the green of trees which is why I named it the Elemental Scarf, in made me think of water and earth.


Since they came as a pairing I really wanted to use them together in my project. I came up with the idea of alternating thick and thin stripes. Thick stripes of blue and thin stripes of green with the blue stripes getting thinner as the green get thicker until you end up with thick green stripes and thin blue stripes.


The design is made with a combination of basic stitches, including single crochet, half double crochet, double crochet, and treble crochet. This makes it super easy to make and follow. I chose to make my scarf a short circle scarf but you could easily continue the pattern to make a longer circle scarf or a long straight scarf.


The yarn is super soft and drapes so beautifully. I used sport weight yarn for my scarf and used about half of both skeins for the size that I made.

How to Crochet the Elemental Scarf

You will need:

The pattern is a repeat of sc, hdc, dc, and tr stitches changing colors every row. I did the entire repeat 2 times to make my scarf, you could easily continue following the repeat to make a longer scarf. In order to not have to cut the yarn at the end of each row I carried my yarn across each row, working over it and changing back at the end of the row.

Beginning chains are counted as a stitch in every row except the sc rows. Do not forget to work your last stitch into the tops of the beginning chain from the previous row or you will end up losing stitches.

I change color at the end of each row by pulling the new color the last yarn over and pull through for the row (for example at the end of a sc row I insert the hook pull up a loop, then yarn over with the new color and pull through, in a dc row I would yarn over, pull up a loop, yarn over, pull through 2 loops, yarn over with new color, pull through 2 loops).
