The Saint Mary Scarf!

I really love how this scarf turned out so I thought I would share the pattern with you!

I have had 3 balls of this gorgeous Rowan Purelle yarn I bought on a sale for a while wondering what I should make with them.  The yarn is recycled silk, cotton and viscose and super beautiful. Look at the color specks dotted throughout!


A while back I helped a friend who was struggling with a pattern for a triangular shawl. I really liked the the stitching of the shawl but did not want another triangle shawl, so I tried to convert the pattern, using the shawl as inspiration but creating a scarf instead, and it worked out really nice.

The original pattern is a paied pattern by the talented Mijo Chrochet and can be found here. If you want a shawl instead I really recommend this pattern, it is beautiful!

Looking at my completed scarf the stitch pattern reminded me of church windows and I came to think of the beautiful St Mary Church in my home town Sigtuna, hence the name of the scarf.

The pattern is super simple, only 2 rows on repeat except for first and last row, and can be made as long and wide as you want, using any yarn and appropriate hook. To alter with make sure you can divide number of single crochets with 3 and add 4 extra single crochets.

I wanted to have a clean edge so I started and ended with single crochets but you can add another edging if you want.

20180701_145655I used 3 balls of my yarn and a 5 mm hook. This gave me a scarf measuring 17 cm x 240 cm.

Here is the link to the pattern on Ravelry so you can add it to your favorites 🙂

If you find any mistakes please let me know so I can correct the pattern. Thank you in advance!

Yarn of choice and appropriate hook size

Row 1: Start with a chainless single crochet foundation Make sure your number of stitches can be divided by 3 and then add 4 extra stitches. I started with 31 stitches (27 stitches (27/3=9) + 4 stitches).

Row 2:  Turn. Chain 4 (equals 1 double crochet and 1 chain).

Skip first 2 stitches. In next stitch make *1 double crochet, chain 1, 1 double crochet (=V-stitch), chain 1*. Skip 2 stitches.

Repeat *-* in every third stitch until you have 2 stitches remaining.

Make 1 double crochet in last stitch.

Row 3: Turn. Chain 4 (equals 1 double crochet and 1 chain).

* In V-stitch, make 1 double crochet, chain 1, 1 double crochet (=V-stitch), chain 1. In chain space in between V-stitches make 1 single crochet, chain 1. *

Repeat rest of row until you have made a V-stitch in last V-stitch.

Chain 1 and make 1 double crochet in third chain from beginning chain in last row.

Row 4: Repeat row 2.

Row 5: Repeat row 3

Repeat until desired length of scarf/ you almost run out of yarn. Make sure you end with row number 2.

Last row: Turn. Chain 1 (does not count as a stitch).

Make 1 single crochet in every stitch and every chain space of row. Cut yarn and weave in ends.
