3-2-1 and you're done! it's a curlicue scarf

Curlicues are so simple, and so fun...

pink curlicue scarf

This is my 3-2-1 Curlicue Scarf, and if you can remember the name - you can remember the pattern.

work a row of loose chain as long as you want the scarf to be

row 1 - work 3 dc into each chain

row 2 - work 2 dc into each stitch

row 3 - work 1 sc into each stitch

it's as easy as that 3-2-1 and you're done!

I used a 6.0mm hook and 8ply/DK yarn. Then I used a novelty yarn for row 3 to provide some contrast. Experiment with whatever yarn you like!

Woo Hoo! I have all the necessary supplies, so I'm off.
I finished my upcycled bag, and lined it - would have been better with matching thread (doh!) but not bad.
I'm addicted already!!!!!!!

I can see this getting on my Christmas make list. It'll be perfect for my sister, once she has been and "had her colours done", so I know what colour to make it in.

laughing purple goldfish said...

cactus - I think it would make a gorgeous gift... especially in 'her colours'... enjoy

Miss Snips said...

I made one... but...
come see it on my blog at http://jswb.blogspot.com

I did link to your post here so that my readers can actually come see how this scarf SHOULD turn out!

laughing purple goldfish said...

miss snips - I took a look at some of your other work while I was over there... some lovely craftsmanship :)

Just discovered your blog a few days ago and have already crocheted up a 3-2-1 scarf for my granddaughter (in obligatory pink-on-pink recycled yarn). Thanks for the pattern--it was fun and kept me from chewing my fingernails off during the election ;)

I've subscribed via RSS feed and look forward to trying other ideas!

Regard,
Debr

I LOVE this pattern! Started my first one last night and finished my second one just then. I imagine I'll be making more. It's addictive- looks good, uses up all my random balls of novelty yarn, and is incredibly easy so it makes a nice break from all the lace-work patterns I keep forcing myself to focus on. Wanted to say thankyou for posting this and making it freely available, it's been a lovely distraction while I'm housebound & convalescing.

laughing purple goldfish said...

ali h - you're welcome... glad to see you can take time to enjoy your craft while convalescing :)

Julie Andrea said...

Ohhh dear! I want to make this scarf, but I don't know if you are using British or American stitches and whenever I ASSume, I make a mess out of things. LOL

A British double crochet (dc) = American single crochet (sc).

An American double crochet (dc) = British treble (tr)

julie - I understand your frustration... I'm in australia and we get BOTH terminologies used here... I use US terminology in all my patterns

with love, Madison said...

Hi, I just found you from the Puglettes ... and I love love love the scarf ... I am going to make one for my Daughter for Christmas - I haven't crocheted in ages but I am sure I can do this one! Now to find some cool yarn and I am off and being creative again. Wow!

laughing purple goldfish said...

madison - how fab to hear that you are going to pick up the hook again... it's a wonderfully creative way to spend your time

hope you can find the perfect yarn for your scarf... it is a simple pattern, but sing out if you have any trouble

thanks for stopping by :)

I just started this last night and it's working up incredibly fast! For a beginner like me it's a great confidence builder.
