Diagonal Scarf

This is a free pattern from red heart. It is a really easy pattern and I think it looks really neat. It has a different look then most stitches.

I made this last year for my sister-in-law for Xmas.

Diagonal Scarf


ch = chain
dc = double crochet
hdc = half double crochet
st(s) = stitch(es)
( ) = work directions in parentheses into same st

Special Stitches

block= (Slip st, ch 3, 3 dc) in indicated ch-3 space. beg block (beginning block) = Ch 6, dc in 4th ch from hook (3 skipped chains count as first ch-3 space), dc in next 2 ch.


Scarf is made in turned rows worked on the diagonal.


4 blocks = 4” (10 cm)
6 rows = 5” (12.5) measured across long edge.
Use any size hook to obtain the gauge.

Scarf measures 6” x 60” (15 x 152.5 cm) not including fringe.


Ch 6.

Row 1 (right side): Dc in 4th ch from hook and in next 2 ch, turn—1 block.

Row 2: Beg block, block in next ch-3 space (beginning ch-3 space of previous row), turn—2 blocks.

Rows 3–7: Beg block, block in ch-3 space of each block across, turn—7 blocks.

Row 8: Beg block, block in ch-3 space of next 6 blocks, slip st in ch-3 space of last block, turn.

Row 9: Ch 1, slip st in first 3 dc, block in ch-3 space of each block across, turn.

Rows 10–69: Repeat Rows 8 and 9 thirty times.

Rows 70–75: Ch 1, slip st in first 3 dc, block in ch-3 space of each block to last block, slip st in ch-3 space last block, turn—1 block.

Fasten off.


Cut 42 strands, each 9” (23 cm) long. Fold each strand in half to form a loop. Insert crochet hook from right side through edge of scarf. Place fold on hook and draw fold through, forming a loop. Thread ends of strands through loop and pull to tighten. Repeat to attach 21 strands evenly across each short edge of scarf. Trim ends evenly.


Weave in ends.
