  • Chains at beginning of row do not count as a stitch.
  • Any worsted weight yarn would work for this pattern.
  • Tassels are totally optional for this scarf. If you don’t know how to make a tassel or add it on, click here for a full picture tutorial.


Row 1: ch 3

Row 2: In 2nd ch from hook, sc across (2)

Row 3: ch1, turn, 2 sc in first sts. 2 sc in last stitch (4)

Row 4: ch1, turn, sc across (4) 

Row 5: ch1, turn, 2 sc in first sts, sc in next 2 sts, 2 sc in last sts (6)

Row 6: ch1, turn, sc across (6)

Row 7: ch1, turn, 2 sc in first sts, sc in next 4 sts, 2 sc in last sts (8)

Row 8: ch1, turn, sc across (8)

Row 8: ch1, turn, sc across (10)

Row 10: ch1, turn, 2 sc in first sts, sc in next 8 sts, 2 sc in last sts (12)

As you can see by the pattern, every other row increases by 2 in the middle and then the following row is a simple repeat of the previous row.

You want to do this until ROW 118, so your last row will be:

Row 118: ch1, turn, 2 sc in first sts, sc in next 114 sts, 2 sc in last sts (118)

When finished, fasten off and weave in all ends.

And there you have it! The cutest crochet triangle scarf!
