The texture in this Happy Trails Scarf crochet pattern is a show stopper! The texture in this crochet scarf really catches the eye and looks stunning when worked in a self stripping yarn.
The texture in the Happy Trails Scarf crochet pattern is created by working the wide herringbone stitch. This stitch is created by anchoring chain stitches across the front in an arrow or chevron design.
The pattern is a two row repeat that is fairly straight forward once you get it set up. The pattern includes basic crochet stitches such as chain stitches, slip stitch, single crochet and double crochet.
The Happy Trails Scarf is a wide and long scarf! I have worked it to be about 10 inches wide and 96 inches long. There will be, of course, multiples down below should you wish to change the size of the scarf. As it is a longer and wider scarf, I did use almost an entire Mandala Bonus Bundle Cake by Lion Brand yarn. It is a light weight yarn with about 1100 yards per cake. I also used a 5mm crochet hook.
Scarf are such a wonderful accessory for Fall and Winter! I have absolutely loved making crochet scarves this year and you may wish to check them out as well! If you like working crochet scarves, I recommend checking out the Acorn Scarf and Goldenrod Scarf. If you are looking for one with a lot of texture, the Bethany Scarf is the way to go!
