We’ve been seeing these everywhere for a while now, and I’ve finally jumped on the yarn cakes bandwagon! I initially wanted to practice knitting with this skein because its just so easy to create a complete product without having to physically change yarn colours, but in the end I just couldn’t wait to start and jumped in with another crochet project!
There were only 3 different ranges at our local craft store but I probably spent about an hour trying to decide which one to eventually take home. I want them all! I also chanced upon this other image of knitted scarfs completed using the Colourwheel Dazzle range and finally decided on Shade 505, Sparkling Seas.
Although a scarf is probably one of the first few projects that one might crochet/knit, I’ve actually never made my own scarf! I didn’t want to have a conventional standard rectangle so I opted for tapered ends.

I worked on this scarf during my free time for about an hour or two daily, and took about 5 days to complete this scarf. It’s a relatively mindless and stress free project after the initial increase and decreasing for the pointed tips and I would highly recommend this to destress! This project is also suitable for beginners, using only half double crochet throughout, although you do need to know to increase and decrease stitches in a row.

Crochet Hook, 4.5mm (The yarn band suggests 4mm)
Ch – chain
Hdc – half double crochet
Hdc2tog – half double crochet decrease
Row 1: Ch 2, 2hdc into 2nd chain from hook, ch 1, turn
Row 2: hdc into each stitch, 2 hdc into last stitch, ch 1, turn
Row 3: 2 hdc into first stitch, hdc into each stitch in the row, ch 1, turn
Repeat rows 2 & 3 until you reach row 30. This should create the increasing triangular tip.
Rows 30 – 184 (you can adjust the number of rows according to how long or short you want your scarf to be): hdc across the row into each stitch, ch 1, turn
Start decreasing to create the opposite end of the scarf, ensuring that you start the next row on the side where the length of the scarf is longer.
Row 185: hdc into each stitch across until 2 stitches remain, hdc2tog, ch 1, turn
Row 186: hdc2tog, hdc into each stitch across, ch 1, turn
Repeat rows 185 & 186 until you reach row 215.
Weave in ends.
