Grey & White Stripe Scarf Pattern

     My sis-in-law recently got a navy blue pea coat, and I wanted to make a scarf to go with it for her birthday. I thought grey and white would look cute with it.  I looked around a little for a pattern, and didn't find I just made one up, it's pretty simple. I wanted it to be light-weight, and not too bulky.  But, I also wanted it to have a chunky homemade feel to it.  I think I achieved my goal by using worsted weight yarn, and large needles (size 11).  Here is the finished product...

Supply List:

Size 11 needles
Red Heart Yarn - Heather Grey (MC)
Red Heart Yarn - Soft White (CC)
crochet hook (for fringe)


Using MC, cast on 21 stitches
Row 1 : k3, p3 (repeat to end)
Row 2 : p3, k3 (repeat to end)
Row 3 & 4 : Repeat Rows 1 & 2
Row 4-8 :With CC repeat rows 1-4
Repeat rows 1-8 until scarf measures 6 ft. long, bind off, and weave in ends.  Cut some 10 in. strands of both MC, and CC. Using 2 strands of each color, and a crochet hook, put 7 tassels on each end.

That's it! I hope my instructions are clear enough...feel free to ask me any questions :)

Thanks for looking!

Hello :)

Please can you give me a break down of your abbreviations that you have used?

Really want to have a go at making this but don't quite understand the instructions.

Thank you

Hi, thanks for your comment :) MC=Main Color, CC=Contrasting Color, K=knit, and P=Purl. I think that covers it...let me know if you have anymore questions!
