Welcome to Craf For The World, who doesn’t like to use double crochet in the front and back with velvet threads?! They are simply amazing and soft!! This purple scarf below is made with ordinary velvet thread. The main difference between ordinary and baby velvet is that the regular is a little thicker and only washes your hands. World
If you’ve never used velvet yarn before, be sure to keep your tension nice and firm while working to prevent loose loops from appearing. You will love using this stitch with velvet, because it really helps to keep things good and fair!!
If you’ve never used double crochet in the front and back, you can watch this quick video to see the stitch before you start!
- 2 (3.5 oz) Bernat Baby Velvet yarn balls and size H, 5 mm hook or 1 ball of Bernat velvet yarn and size I, 5.5 mm hook
- Tapestry needle
- Measuring tape
(Approximate size approx. 4 in. X 50 in.) – Chain 20 with baby velvet or 18 with regular velvet.
LINE 1: From the 4th chain on the hook, work a CD on each chain. (YO, insert your hook, pull a loop, YO, pull through two loops, YO, pull through the remaining two loops.) When you reach the end of the chain, pass chain 2 and turn.
LINE 2: Chain 2 counts as the first point. Around the next stitch, work a FPDC (Front Post Double Crochet). An FPDC means that you insert your hook from front to back around the pole and work your DC. Around the next stitch, work with a double crochet behind (BPDC). A BPDC means that you insert your hook back to the front of the column and work with a domain controller.
Continue alternating FPDC and BPDC until the end of the line. When you reach the end of the line, work a regular CD under the turning chain. Chain 2 and turn.
LINE 3: Chain 2 counts as the first point. Around the next point, work a BPDC. Then work an FPDC. Keep working BPDC, FPDC until the end of the line. Chain 2 and turn. (In other words, you’re always working around the post so that it stands out in the same direction as the line below.)
Repeat lines 2 through 3 until your scarf measures between 50 and 55 inches or the desired length.
After your scarf is about 15 cm long, sew both ends, aligning them evenly and inserting your hook on both sides, shouting and pulling directly through the hook loop. After sewing the sides, tie and leave a long tail, then use a tapestry needle to weave the tail in and out of the seam to keep it safer.
When you are finished, weave all your ends with a tapestry needle, turn it inside out so that the seam is on the inside and enjoy your super cozy infinite scarf!
This pattern is perfect, we hope you enjoy making this scarf!
