I’m on a mad crochet spree at the moment. It keeps my hands busy whilst my mind wanders.
The half granny square scarf has become a staple – around my neck – and on my hook – since my Mum showed me how to make it a few years back. I’m always wearing one in winter! And I’ve nearly finished a cotton one for those cool summer evenings!
Even though I’m terrible at reading and writing crochet patterns, I think this one is so simple, I can show you how it’s done! And lets face it, if you’ve ever crochet, you’ve probably tried your hand at granny squares, and this is just like that, except missing half the square!
I have written the following assuming you have a little bit of crochet knowledge. Choose a hook that suits your yarn.
You start off like any other granny square – Make a slip knot and then chain 3. Then make a slip stitch into the first chain to form a circle.
Chain 3, then make 3 treble into the middle of the circle.
Chain 2, then another 3 treble.
Chain 1, then 1 treble.
Chain 3. Turn.
3 treble into first gap. Chain 1.
3 treble into next gap, 2 chain, 3 treble. (This is the point of the scarf. This is the only place you do 2 chain. Always do 2 chain at this point)
Then chain 1, 1 treble into same gap. (This will be how you turn at the end of every row)
Chain 3 and turn.
From here it is pretty straight forward. 3 treble into each gap, with a chain in between. Making sure when you get to the point you do 2 chain so you can fit two sets of three treble. And when you get to the end of a row you add an extra set of treble.
Here’s a rough drawing of how the stitches should work out…
Like I mentioned before, I wear these scarves constantly throughout winter! I wear them with the point at the front (kinda like cowboy style), but have been known to wrap it around my shoulders depending on how cold I am!
These next two are for sale, so message me if you would like to own one!
Have a creative week <3
