One Hour Braided Scarf {Free Knit & Crochet Patterns}


Free Braided Scarf or Cowl Crochet Pattern

I’ve had this big, bold scarf design in mind for a while, but something about my design idea wasn’t quite right.  Then last week I learned a new skill – the crochet I-Cord!  I immediately knew I HAD to bring this pattern to life….ASAP!  It was clear to me right away that the gorgeous Red Heart Irresistible yarn I had sitting on my shelf was the perfect option for this pattern.

I’ve been working on my projects for the Jennika Mystery Create-A-Long for a few months now (the sign ups are happening this week!!  I’m SO excited.  Get a sneak peek by clicking here if you haven’t already) so a fun, quick project like this one was a perfect little side adventure for me.

This bold, trendy braided scarf is sure to be a hit this Christmas….and it takes only one hour (or less!) to make.  I’ve created both a knit and a crochet version of this free scarf pattern…and they’re nearly identical!  I’ve also included instructions for either a cowl style scarf or the longer braided scarf you see in blue.  If you’re a knitter, all you need to know is how to create a 3 stitch I-Cord.  If you’re a crocheter, then enjoy the video below which will walk you through this project step by step.  I’ve also included a crochet I-Cord video I recently posted on my Facebook page.  Hope you find it helpful!

  5. In the knit version instructions, it says K = Chain (which obviously should mean Knit)… The patterns are lovely, and the scarves look so warm and cuddly. I can’t wait to find some super big yarn to make a few of these for gifts going into winter! Thank you for sharing them.

  6. Thanks again, one correction on the knit version,
    I believe it should be 4 stitches at end of row 1.

  7. This is so unusual and so lovely at the same time. Love it!!
