ZigZag Scarf (free Crocheting pattern)

Zig Zag Scarf

I had a bunch of worsted weight leftover yarns from knitting or crocheting other things, and I decided to find me something to use them up. After fiddling around a bit and finding a pattern, I discovered the crocheting pattern itself isn’t new, I discovered single coloured potholders made in a similar way, but this ain’t a potholderūüėČ

This pattern can be downloaded as a PDF version here. (This is a Rapidshare download; if you don’t hold an accound with them, choose the free download. This might take a few moments, thanks for your patience!)

Here’s what you need:

– 9 (or more) different colours of leftover yarn (preferably all in the same weight)

– crocheting hook matching your yarn

– a darning needle / tapestry needle to sew in ends.

Here’s how to do it – the crochet pattern:

Stitches used (US English):

– chain stitch

– single crochet

begin with a chain of 34 chain stitches

Row 1 – base row

  • 1 (one) single crochet into the second chain from hook
  • *1 (one) single crochet into the three next chains (4 single crochets made)
  • 3 (three) single crochets into the next chain
  • 1 (one) single crochet into the four next chains
  • draw loop through next chain as if to make single crochet, but do not finish stitch. Keep loop on crochet.
  • skip one chain
  • draw loop through next chain as if to make single crochet. Now finish stitch by pulling your yarnover through all the loops (3) on your crochet.
  • 1 (one) single crochet into the four next chains
  • 3 (three) single crochets into the next chain
  • 1 (one) single crochet into the four next chains
  • draw loop through next chain as if to make single crochet, but do not finish stitch. Keep loop on crochet.
  • skip one chain
  • draw loop through next chain as if to make single crochet. Now finish stitch by pulling your yarnover through all the loops (3) on your crochet.
  • 1 (one) single crochet into the four next chains
  • 3 (three) single crochets into the next chain
  • 1 (one) single crochet into the four next chains
  • one chain stitch
  • turn work*

(you already will see your row forming the zigzag – with three points and two valleys; sorry for the crappy chart, I couldn’t figure out a more professional way)

Row 2

skip the last single crochet made in previous row

1 (one) single crochet into the back loop of the next stitch

repeat Row 1 from * to *, with the difference that ALL stitches are worked into the back loop of the stitch below

Following rows

Repeat Row 2 until your scarf is as long as you want it to be r all your colours have been used!

Here’s how to do it – the colour pattern:

  • work 5 rows with colour 1
  • switch colours: cut yarn , use new colour. Crochet around ends as you go, weaving them in automatically. Always use the new colour to make the chain stitch before turning work.
  • work 1 row with colour 2
  • work 4 rows with colour 1
  • work 2 rows with colour 2
  • work 3 rows with colour 1
  • work 3 rows with colour 2
  • work 2 rows with colour 1
  • work 4 rows with colour 2
  • work 1 row with colour 1
  • work 5 rows with colour 2
  • work 1 row with colour 3
  • work 4 rows with colour 2
  • continue working in the same rhythm (5, 1, 4, 2, 3, 3, 2, 4, 1, 5, 1…), progressively changing colours.
  • finish with 5 rows of last colour
  • weave in ends, enjoy!
