Migrating Stitches Super Scarf – Crochet Pattern

Craftsy

Today I’m going to share a crochet pattern for my newly designed Migrating Stitches Super Scarf.  A couple weeks ago I opened an email from RedHeart.  They were having a flash sale on their Boutique Boulevard yarn.  This is a size 7 jumbo yarn which is used to make all the mega scarves and blankets popping up all over the interwebs.  The price was only 99 cents a skein!  This yarn is usually $5.99 a skein, so of course I bought 2 of every color I could get my hands on!

I’m using the color Cosmopolitan (pink) to make my scarf.  I just hope it gets cold enough here to wear it!  The pattern is fairly easy – only single crochet and chains.  This would be a great project for a beginner that will work up fast and have a big impact.  The pattern is at the bottom, but here are some pictures of the work in progress and the finished product.

Work In Progress (WIP)

The reason I called this “Migrating Stitches”  is because the single crochets just move down one stitch in every row.  In photo #1 you can see the first 4 rows and how the single crochets are moving back one stitch on each row.  Photo #2 just shows it spread out a little.  The #3 photo shows the beginning of row 6.  As you go back and forth, the next single crochet is either just before or just after the last one.  It just depends on what direction you’re traveling.  The last photo, #4, shows how I picked up a new line of single crochet in the 7th row.  This was to keep the chain spaces from getting too long as I added width.

I hope that helps you understand the stitches better!  Now, here’s some pictures of the finished product.

I am SO happy with the way this turned out!  I tried several different stitches using this yarn and they all seemed too stiff.  Having the open work chain rows gives it so much more movement.

It wraps really well too and gives a very full look.

This yarn is a bubble gum kind of pink, but it looks different in certain lights.

This will be a very snuggly scarf if we ever see some cold weather!  Maybe I need to take a trip up north to test it out!  I’ve tried to make the pattern as easy to understand as possible.  Although I’ve been crocheting for over 30 years, this is only the second pattern I’ve written.  If you find errors, please let me know!

My links to RedHeart will give you a code that’s part of their new “Refer a Friend” program.  You get $10 towards your first purchase and I’ll get $10 towards my next purchase if you buy something!
