Sands of Time Scarf…

To celebrate my 2 year Blogversary… I created this fun and easy to make crochet scarf!!!  Using self-striping yarn and working with an easy stitch pattern to achieve a rolling effect,,, The Sands of Time Scarf is elegant and  fashionable all year-long!!  It is light-weight enough for spring, but warm enough to keep you warm on a chilly winters day!!

Worsted Weight ~ Self-Striping Yarn 425 yards

Pictured above using Red Heart Unforgettable in Cappuccino. 1 1/2 skeins used
Buy it now!!

Hook ~ I

2 Large Beads (optional) for top of Tassle




St ~ Stitch     Ch ~ Chain     Sc ~ Single Crochet     Hdc ~ Half Double Crochet



You will be increasing  at one end of the scarf and Decreasing at the opposite end to get this fun bias roll effect.

To make this scarf wider, thinner, more or less bulky you can adjust your beginning chain to any width you desire

To make the scarf shorter or longer you can adjust the finished row amount

You will be working in Back Loops for every row



From tip to tip not including the tassels ~ length  85″  and the width when laid flat  7″


Ch 46

Row 1: Sc in 2nd Ch from hook and each across. = 45 Sc

Work in Back Loops in every row

Row 2: Ch 2 (counts as Hdc now and throughout), Turn, Hdc in the same St as the beginning Ch(This will make an increase), Hdc in the next 43 Sts. Leaving the last St unworked(this will make the decrease. 45 Hdc

Row 3:  Turn, Sl St in first 2 Sts (Make sure to get the very 1st St, these 2 Sl Sts are the decrease), Ch 1, Sc in same St as 2nd Sl St, Sc in next 42 Sts, 2 Sc in the  last St (this will be in the top of the Ch 2 from the prev row, this is an increase). = 45 Sc

Continue working Rows 2 &  3 until your scarf reaches the desired length. I did a total of 117 rows and ended with a Sc row.  Finish off.

Add a tassel to each end if desired.

Here is a quick tutorial on How to Make a Tassel out of yarn…  Tassel Making

I added a fun bead to the top of my tassel for fun!



And of course… Charlie wouldn’t miss his chance to get in on the action while I was doing the photo shoot… He loves a celebration and  pictures..

  8. Beautiful scarf and Charlie is awesome! Do you have a picture of the scarf lying flat? Is it a diamond shape? Thanks

  9. Oh, I’ve been wanting to try out this color in RH Unforgettable for some time now, I really enjoy that yarn. This scarf turned out beautifully. I love the simplicity but how great the finished product is.


  10. I think this scarf is lovely. Definitely have to make it. Way reading directions and says you did 117 rows. Assuming this is a typo? If so, what is correct count?

  11. This scarf came out BEAUTIFULLY! And in my favorite colors. Pinning for later.

  12. Hello, I absolutely adore your patterns, can you help me with the wool weights please, I am English and we have different names for our wool, ie:- 3ply, 4ply, double knitting and chunky. Do you know the American equivalents? ph.

  13. Thank you for sharing this wonderful shawl. The pattern in pretty nice and the yarn is wonderful. Best regards from Germany! Andrea

  14. Is there always 45 stitches with the increase and decrease going on? I love this look of the scarf.

  15. I love this scarf and the yarn you used. Mine seems correct on the increase side but jagged on the decrease side. Is this normal or should both ends look the same?
    Thank you
