Easy Rope Stitch Crochet Scarf

Easy Rope Stitch Crochet Scarf

Introducing the Mermaid Confetti Scarf!

This is a simple scarf using a new stitch I just discovered called the rope stitch – so technically it’s a rope stitch crochet scarf.

But the yarn I used just looked like mermaid confetti to me! 😃

I chose the rope stitch for this scarf because I wanted an easy somewhat lacy scarf for summer.

When I came across it, I thought it had a super interesting look, plus it was super easy!

Honestly, I think it is a really great stitch that’s not only good for warm weather scarves, but shawls, and even market bags.

In fact, I am thinking of designing a market bag with this stitch next because I simply cannot get enough of it!

Yarn Details: It’s all about the yarn baby!

I chose Red Heart Gumdrop in color way smoothie for a couple of reasons.

One, the colors were just what I was looking for!

The blend of green, pink, and yellow just screamed summer to me – which is, of course, perfect for a summer scarf.

Secondly, the yarn has a lovely sheen and is actually quite soft.

I just can’t stop touching it. 😂

I wanted a soft scarf because, well, they are more comfortable to wear, aren’t they? 😉

Pattern is written in US terms.

Hook (hk)

Stitch/es (st/sts)

Chain stitch (ch)

Double crochet (dc)

*__* – Repeat indicated instructions

Special Stitches:

Rope Stitch – creates a small cluster by working – 1 dc, ch 1, 1 dc – into one stitch. In the next rows, you will always work this rope cluster into the ch 1- space from the row below.

Additional Notes:

  • Read all pattern notes, instructions, and other provided details carefully before starting the project to make sure you understand everything.  It could save you hours & a lot of headaches!
  • Make a swatch that measures at least 10 x 10 cm / 4 x 4 inches using the stitch provided under the Gauge Section. If your swatch matches the gauge, then you are all set to start the project. If the gauge is wrong, you might need to change your crochet hook – increase your hook size if your stitches are smaller & decrease your hook size if your stitches are larger.
  • All measurements given are unblocked.
  • Provided measurements are as exact as possible, but are given as approximates. This is because yarn variances, crochet tension, & individual  technique might give variations in the result, which changes from person to person.


Ch 24

Row 1: Dc in the 4th ch from hook, ch 1, dc in next ch, *skip next ch, dc in next ch, ch 1, dc in next ch, repeat from * to last ch, dc in the last ch. (15 sts)

Row 2:  Ch 3 skip first 2 dc, *(dc, ch 1, dc) in next ch-1 sp, skip 2 dc, repeat from * to last dc, skip last dc, dc in turning chain, turn work.

Rows  3 – 89:  Repeat row 2.

Bind off and weave in ends.

That’s it!

This is seriously one of the easiest scarves you will ever crochet.

Plus, it can be whipped up in less than an hour and it takes very little yarn – which make it an awesome scrap buster project!

Easy, quick, and fashionable – what more could you ask for in a pattern? 😉

Thank you for this fun pattern. If I want to increase the width, how would I calculate this?


Thursday 3rd of September 2020

Hi Gotjava,

So glad you like my pattern! Increasing the width is super easy - just chain more in your foundation chain. The pattern calls for Ch 24 so if you want double the width then chain 48. Does that make sense?

Let me know if you need any help!

Best wishes,
