The Brighton Scarf Crochet Pattern is a beautiful interlocking shell stitch design. It gives you the beauty and class of lace, but is solid and cozy to wear!
Welcome to day two of week three in the Wonderful Hats Crochet Along 2022! Our scarf pattern today complements the Brighton Beanie. The scarf is worked all as one piece including the ribbed fringe on each end.

I love the look of the Brighton Scarf! Like the beanie, it has a classic look that can be worn with a variety of outfits. It’s such a beautiful set.
The interlocking shell stitch is a fairly easy pattern to work. It works up quickly and creates a solid design with a stunning texture. For this scarf I opted to work a double crochet ribbed fringe which just just a bit more rich texture.
For the Brighton Scarf, I will be working with a single colour of a worsted weight yarn. In the photos and in the video tutorial I am using the Color Theory Yarn by Lion Brand Yarn. It is super soft and 100% acrylic. You will only need two balls to complete this pattern.
For this pattern you will also need a 4.5 mm crochet hook. In the video tutorial below I will be using a Birchwood Hook by Rowan Yarns.
This pattern will be written out in full below followed by a free video tutorial. The pattern is free to follow on my site and will always be free! If, however, you would like a printable copy, you may purchase one from my Etsy and Ravelry Shops linked below:

I think the count for row 2 is incorrect. Row 1 ends with 31 stitches, and row 2 ends with 35 stitches, according to directions. However, when reading instructions, row 2 does not appear to have any increases.
