As you can see in these photos I’ve made this same scarf in 2 versions: using a worsted weight yarn and a chunky yarn. I think it looks (and I am certain it feels) soft and comfy. The mix of the bubble stitch and the double crochet rib stitch creates a rich texture. This scarf will keep you or your loved one warm and cozy and add a unique touch to any winter outfit. I imagine it is also nice to have it handy if you a parent of a baby, to use it as a stroller blanket.

This pattern is written using US terminology.

The garment’s dimensions:

approx. 122/48 x 97/38 x 97/38 cm/inch

Inspiration: it got quite chilly in Athens and I just wanted something warm and cozy and QUICK. It only takes a couple of evenings to crochet this scarf/shawl. In terms of crocheting/knitting that can be called an (almost!) instant gratification project 😉

Useful advice: I normally go up a size from the recommended hook – it gives garments more stretch and less of that famous crochet stiffness. However, if you have issues with your tension I would stick to the yarn instructions

SUPPLIES

Recommended yarn: I’ve made 2 versions of the same shawl, using two different kinds of yarn. The first one is AIROLO by Lang Yarns, in one colour (mustard) 100% virgin wool, 100 g = 150 m and I used a 7 mm crochet hook. The second one is Extra Merino by Lanas Stop, a pink-white-grey colour changing yarn, 52% wool, 48% acrilic, 100g = 250 m and I used a 5.5 mm crochet hook.

Yarn usage: 3 skeins of AIROLO or 2 skeins of Extra Merino.

Crochet hook size: 7.00 mm or 5.5 mm

Tapestry needle to weave ends and a normal needle

Stitch markers or similar (you can use safety pins with attached scraps of contrasting yarn)

Abbreviations

Ch – chain

DC – double crochet

TC – treble crochet

BL – back loop only

BS – bubble stitch (a bubble + a single crochet stitch)

CP – central piece, dc, tr, chain 2, tc, dc

Bubble stitch

Basically a bubble is created by a series of unfinished double crochet stitches made into one stitch. You pull your yarn over like when you are about to do a dc, insert your hook into the designated stitch, pull up a loop. You then will have 3 loops on your hook. Repeat the sequence till you have 6 loops on your hook, pull a loop through all 6 of them and finish it with a nice and tight single crochet into the next stitch. Here you are, you’ve got your bubble. I love making bubbles – they create a nice soft and cushy texture and give a sense of little accomplishment every time you manage to make a bubble done just right.

Pullover Athena – the pattern

THE PATTERN

Before we start working on the pattern I would like to mention that it is important to leave longer (about 5 cm/2 inch long) ends at the beginning of each part and at the end so that you can weave them in afterwards. And it is absolutely necessary that you place your first dc into the first stitch of the next row, not the second one like you would normally do – this will make a 1 st increase in every row. You also place 2 dc at the last stitch of each row – another 1 st increase.

Seaming 2
So this is the end of the pattern for a scarf or a small shawl. If you want to make a big shawl, you can continue alternate the rows with different stitches. Keep in mind that BS is a notorious yarn eater, hence the mesh rows to compensate a bit for the yarn used up creating bubbles. It is safe to say that you’d need another 2 skeins of the same yarn to make it into a bigger shawl, or another small skein (50 gr) to make tassels.
