The Bandit Scarf
The revelation that scarves can make or break any outfit has been my new philosophy, and I think a piece like this really yells something different about your outfit. Bandana’s, in my opinion, always carry this “tough” look that has always been a fun selling point. And why? Just because its triangular compared to a circle? I was finally struck with the motivation like this after a saw a scarf in an anime that I finished called Kill La Kill (Would highly recommend if you like over-the-top amines!) So here’s you chance to add some toughness to your look – baseball bat is not required.
Skill Level: Easy
3 skeins in ZZ Twist Choice:
- ZZ twist in Red (Any color you choose will look amazing though!)
20 sts x 11 rows = 4”x4” square in Hdc
Ch – Chain
Sc – Single Crochet
Inc – Increase
Hdc – Half Double Crochet
( ) – number of stitches at the end of the round
Notes: There has been some confusion on how the end product will look at the end, since the pattern looks like it is worked in two different way. You will be working along the side of it to essentially create an infinity scarf with a triangle in the front; here are some photos of the finished product lying flat:
Ch 4 for your foundation chain
Row 1: Hdc into second chain from hook. Hds across (3)
Row 2: Ch 1, 2 Hdc into the first stitch. Hdc across. 2 Hdc into the last stitch. (5)
Row 3 – 31: Ch 1, 2 Hdc into the first stitch. Hdc across. 2 Hdc into the last stitch. (You number of stitches you have will increase by 2 each round. You will end on 63 stitches across)
Row 32 – 52: Ch 1 turn. Hdc across. (63)
This will be how it will look!
From here, you are going to Hdc down the closest side, down until the point the triangle starts decreasing:
You will Hdc into the first stitch
Now begin working down the side
Row 54: Hdc across until the triangle starts to Decrease (29)
Row 55: Ch 1, turn. Hdc across (29)
Row 56 – 108: Ch 1, turn. Hdc across (20) (Or until any desired length!)
Now you will slip stitch (sewing is also an option!) the end together
Line both ends up and sl stitch both ends
You can even sew them together!
And there you have it; I hope you enjoyed this pattern!
