About Andrea

The Awesome Andrea Scarf is dedicated to Andrea from British Columbia, Canada. She’s married and has a hearty beautiful 5 year old son.

She runs a busy massage practice, enjoys teaching dance and perform as a volunteer for the local theatre group. Up till now, Andrea is the only grown up woman I know with this condition.

About this design

As it can be very cold in Canada, I wanted to make a long, chunky scarf which can be wrapped around two times. The pattern works up very quickly with a 10mm hook and worsted weight yarn.

This fast crochet scarf pattern uses very easy crochet stitches: a combination of single crochet and double crochet. Thanks to its simplicity, it’s a beautifully meditative pattern. This pattern offers a great opportunity to learn the basics of crochet while also creating a beautiful functional item.

I’ve used a neutral color – grey – which matches with every coat & outfit. I decided to add fringes on both ends, because I think crochet fringe is the perfect touch; it adds an extra element to basic designs and is very easy to make.

About this special series of patterns

I was born with a (benign) tumor in my face. For more than 22 years my doctors did not know what it was exactly. In 2017 I did a second opinion and got diagnosed with an ultra rare condition. I immediately started searching for other people with this condition.

So far I have found about 20 people in the whole wide world. It’s amazing how many similarities we have and how much we look alike. I feel very grateful they came into my life.

Many of my upcoming patterns, including this one, will be special designs inspired by my new ‘extended family’ who have made a huge impact on me.

    Hi! Thank you for the beautiful pattern.
    Do you always end each row with a sc?

      I have the same question. If I crochet 27 chains my last one is a dc not a sc. Can’t figure out what I’m doing wrong.

        Only row 1 has 27 chains, every other row should have just 24 stitches. you need an even number of stitches to make it end on a SC.
