It’s fall!  Fall is one of my favorite times of year.  The weather is cooler, the clothes are warmer, the blankets are fuzzier and everything is just a little bit more cozy!  In celebration of fall, I wanted to make a new lush scarf to add to my wardrobe and thus the Shimmer Crochet Scarf was born.

The yarn

I typically go to either JoAnn’s or Michael’s for all of my yarn purchases and this yarn purchase was no exception.  Instead of going to my usual local JoAnn store, I decided to make a trek to an alternate location a town over for a change of scenery.

This store was a bit larger than the location closer to me and they had a really great selection of yarn!  While browsing the aisles I found Red Heart’s Hygge Charm and I couldn’t resist!  It’s super soft, and has a hint of shimmer to it and this color was absolute perfection.

The Stitch

The stitch looks complicated, but I promise you it’s not!  The stitch is comprised of alternating between single and double crochets and the end result is a beautiful and elegant texture with a super dreamy drape!  I cannot wait for you to give this pattern a try!

  1. What a lovely shawl. Simple design doesn’t mean ordinary. Looking forward to making this pattern.
    Thank you for sharing.

  2. This looks lovely and I can’t wait to give it a go. Thank you so much for sharing your pattern. I would like to make this narrower – please could you tell me what the pattern repeat is? Also,d do you know who much yarn you would need for a narrow scarf? Thank you x

    1. Hi Penny! You can chain any odd number you would like and the pattern will work out. So just make your foundation chain be whatever width you would like and make sure its an odd number. As for the amount of yarn, it will depend on how long you would like to make your scarf. I crocheted until I used up both balls of yarn, so my finished scarf used about 864 yards (each ball was 432 yds). Hope this helps and happy crocheting!

  3. Hi Brittany
    I am a crochet beginner and really looking forward to making this! I noted that the crochet hook size recommended on the yarn label says 5.5mm but your instructions say an 8mm hook. Just checking that the 8mm hook is correct.
    Thank you!

    1. Hi Lori Ann! Yes – the size 8.0mm hook is correct. Using the larger hook size is what gives the wrap a pretty drape! If you find your stitches are way too loose you can aways try a hook size down. Happy crocheting!

  4. Hey Brittany I’m making this
    same scarf and I’m almost done with it and wanted to add a border to it and I was wondering if I could use the same stitches I’m already using for it would be possible or would you use different stitches?

    1. Hi Cammie! That’s a great idea and totally up to you! The main stitch pattern will give you a bit of a bumpy border, or you could do a single or hdc border if you like a smoother look. Both would look great, but it just depends on the look you are going for! Hope this helps!

  5. I absolutely loved this pattern when I saw it. So much so that I bought the wrong yarn. The Red Heart Hygge yarn I bought is a size 5 bulky yarn. What adjustments do you think I should make as far as hook size?

    1. Hi Lydia! Ooo I LOVE the Red Heart Hygge Yarn! Don’t worry, this will turn out lovely with the yarn you purchased, the only thing is that you might need more balls of yarn as the Hygge Charm used in the pattern comes in 432 yd balls and I used up two full balls of it for a total of 864 yds.

      This pattern is super easy to modify though, all you need to do is make a foundation chain to the width of your liking (my scarf is 15 inches wide) and make sure that your foundation chain is an odd number. Follow the repeat instructions until you’ve used up all of your yarn or until you get to the desired length. That’s it!!

      Please let me know if you have any other questions!

      1. Hi Brittany – this scarf is beautiful! I wanted to ask about length though. I felt like my scarf was getting pretty long so I went ahead and measured it – it’s currently about 76 in long as yours was, however, I have not yet used up all of my second ball. So I was wondering if I should stop now, or just keep going to the end. It’ll obviously make it really long, but maybe that’s okay as it can always be folded, which should also it make it warmer…but I’m nervous about it being too long.

  6. Lovely results from this patten, so happy how it turned out ! Made it for a dear friend as a prayer shawl on the loss f her 24 year old son. I used the Hygge Charm in Starlight. Thank you for this pattern.

    1. Hi Bonnie, thank you for your note! I’m so sorry for both your’s and your friends loss. I’m sure she will find comfort in the prayer shawl that you made her as each stitch was created with love and care.

  7. This is just the type of scarf (or wrap) that I have been looking for. I can’t wait to start this as my next project!

  8. I made this as a beginner and I love it so much!! I wrote about it on my blog. (rosiesewstoo.com) Thank you for the free pattern and tutorial. <3

  9. First of it’s beautiful. I’m making items for women abused shelters. I think this scarf will make someone very happy.

    Thank you,

    1. Thank you so much for your kind words! It’s truly heartwarming to know that this scarf design will bring joy and comfort to someone at a women’s shelter. Your thoughtful gesture is deeply appreciated.
