Let's Crochet A Pretty Scarf Necklace!
A Great Way To Fill In A Low Neckline!
That's the original reason I designed this handy little scarf! I won a beautiful dress from eShakti.com in a makeover contest and the V neckline was just way too low. I had purchased this skein of JoAnn Sensations "Caribbean" earlier this summer, and its soft hand and subtle sparkle made it exactly what I needed to fill in this neckline.
I added a little band of single crochet which floats loosely on the scarf. I'm planning to use this as a loop from which to hang a large brooch or other jewelry pendant to accent the scarf and add weight, making it hang in a perfect V shape.
This is designed in a very simple double and single crochet pattern, making it easy enough for a confident beginner. I've written the instructions in my custom-fit method so that you can make the scarf the exact necklace length you need. (Remember to allow for some stretch when you hang a jewelry object on it in your measurements).

I own and love this yarn cutting pendant! It's so handy when I'm working in stripes and have to cut yarn frequently! No more searching for where I laid the scissors!
A Word About Yarn & Thread Selection...
You may use different yarns such as scrap yarns or threads with good results! Just make sure to keep them similar in weight and thickness so as not to throw off the pattern.
Let's Make The Magic!
Make a starting chain the length you want your scarf to be, in an even number of chains.
Being careful not to twist chain, join to first chain. Chain 4, skip two chains, DC in next chain. *Ch 2, skip 2 chains, DC in next chain." Repeat from * around. End with ch 2, sl st in 2nd chain of starting ch 4.
Ch 4, DC in next DC. *Ch 2, DC in next DC. Repeat from * around ending with ch 2, sl st in 2nd chain of starting ch 4.
Repeat this round until your scarf is the desired width. Fasten off, weave in ends.
Ch 20, SC in 2nd chain and each chain across. Placing band loosely around scarf making sure not to twist, join to other end of band with slip stitch. Ch 1, work one round of SC on band. (If you want a wider band, do more rows of SC). Fasten off, weave in ends.
I own and love every size of this crochet hook. They allow me to keep crocheting despite severe arthritis in my hands.

I recently purchased this for myself. It's handy to know how much yarn a given project requires when you're going to be making more than one!
This is so much more attractive than what I used for years, a 3 pound coffee can with a hole cut in the plastic lid! Anybody testify? Bonus... this won't snag your thread, either.
A Note From Your Designer...
Hi, I'm SheilaSchnauzies, also published as SheilaSparkles, and my life's passion is designing in Crochet! I also love to share gifts with friends, and this pattern is my gift to you! I give away about 95% of my pattern designs free. The other 5% are sold on my pattern store at Craftsy.com to benefit the vet expenses of my Miniature Schnauzer Rescue, Sheila's Schnauzies.
Just one little favor, please... I would appreciate it if you do not post this pattern anywhere on the Internet or in the 'real world.' Instead, you are most welcome to provide a link to this webpage.
I use a system I call the "Official Schnauzer Difficulty Rating" just for fun, to rate the difficulty of my patterns. If it's a 3/5 or more, I'll explain why I consider it more difficult. A few of my designs use techniques that are a bit unconventional! If it's one of those patterns, I'll warn you ahead of time. I do a lot of custom-fit patterns, for example. They are made to fit YOU, not a measurement from a chart. They're surprisingly easy to do and actually end up fitting. That's a good thing, yes?
So glad you found my patterns! I hope you really enjoy making whatever it is you're making! Crochet hugs, -Sheila
