Short Scarf (Scarfette) | Free Crochet Pattern

This is a fun, easy, fast pattern that makes a great gift and is a great way to show off pretty yarn.

Here in Colorado, winter hits hard and the air stings against any exposed skin. I love scarves, but in order to cover my neck well, I want them under my coat to provide the most warmth. This means that when I button my coat, the long ends hang out the bottom like a tail in the front!

To alleviate that, I wrote the Scarfette pattern. It allows me to put a warm, lovely addition to my coat but does not hang out the bottom.

I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!

Beginner pattern. Need to have knowledge of half double crochet (hdc), double crochet (dc).
Red Heart With Love or similar worsted weight yarn: Boysenberry, approx. 319 yds, 2 balls.

Pattern Notes
1.      Use two strands held together throughout.
2.      Ch 2 at beginning or row counts as dc unless specified otherwise.
3.      To work in ends of scarf, work 2 stitches in end of dc rows and 1 stitch in end of all others rows.

    Kati, here a question all the way from The Netherlands: is the repeat you mentioned of the rows (1 and 2) correct? Or should it be after row 3 row 2 and 3? I just wonder, because now row 4 will be the hdc again, just like row 3. Or do you mean repeat row 1, 2 and 3?
    I want to make this shawl for my mother of almost 89.
