Basketweave Scarf

It's a simple design that requires front post double crochet (fpdc) and back post double crochet (dpdc).


Worsted weight yarn
I Hook

Ch 17. 
Row 1. Dc in third ch from hook, dc in each ch across. Ch 2. Turn. (15 dc sts)
Row 2. Dc in first st, * fpdc in next st, bpdc in next st. Repeat from * to the last two sts in the row. Fpdc in second to last st, dc in last st. Ch 2. Turn.
Repeat Row 2 until the scarf is the desired length.

You can change the width of the scarf by changing the number of initial chain stitches. However, make sure the number of initial chains is odd, or else the pattern will no longer work.


  1. Love the look of the scarf. Tks for sharing.
    I think I will try it with sock yarn

  2. Was just curious as to what yarn this was, it has a pretty undertone!

  3. I purchased it from Hobby Lobby awhile ago. I don't remember what the brand was but just that I had only seen it at Hobby Lobby.
