5th Day Of Halloween: Spooky Crochet Striped Scarf Pattern

My lovely husband wearing the spooky crochet striped scarf

Welcome to day 5 of our spooky crochet pattern jamboree, we’re making a spooky crochet striped scarf pattern! This pattern is the perfect example of everything you could want in a Halloween scarf! I love how this pattern came out, not only do I adore the color combo, but the yarn I used gives it a beautiful sheen too. Just in case you want the yarn I used, this is the link to the Ever Soft yarn on the Premier Yarns site*

*I’m not sponsored or affiliated, I’m just sharing what I used.

I’m a huge Tim Burton fan in case you didn’t know. Nightmare Before Christmas and Beetlejuice have been my favorite movies to watch since I was a child and were my inspiration for making this scarf. I knew I wanted some contrasting Halloween colors, so I decided that I would go with purple, grey, black, and green. Burton films are typically known for there high and low key lighting, the underworlds are typically more colorful and full of life than the normal world. Such as in the Alice in wonderland movies, the corpse bride, and, the 1989 Batman and the 1992 Batman Returns movies. I decided to make this a scarf fit for the lively underworld!

So, let’s get to the pattern!

The spooky Crochet striped scarf pattern

This pattern is made completely of the granny stitch, if you want to practice that first, then here’s the tutorial: The Granny Stitch.

Firstly

The pictures for the tutorial will be of a smaller scarf then you will make. The top image and the one at the end will be the finished scarf.

Use the purple yarn first.

Foundation row. Ch 27.

Row 1. Work 3 dcs into the 7th st from the hook, *ch 1, sk 3 sts, put 3 dcs in the 4th st,* repeat until you come to your last 4 sts, ch 1, and put 1 dc in the last st. <5 granny clusters>

Row 2. Ch 3, put 2 dcs in the ch space, *ch 1, put 3 dcs in the next ch space,* repeat until you come to the last ch space, put 2 dcs in the last, put a dc in the 5th ch up from the granny cluster below. <6 granny clusters> Cut your tail, tie it off, and weave in your tail.

Using the next color of yarn, attach your yarn to the end you tied off.

Row 3. Ch 4, put 3 dcs in the ch sp, * ch 1, put 3 dcs in the next ch space,* repeat from *-* until you come to the last ch space, ch 1, put a dc in the top 3rd chain from the previous row. <5 granny clusters>

Rows 4-8. Repeat rows 2 and 3. You will end on row 2 and tie off the black yarn at the end of the row.

Secondly: The next part

Attach the new color of yarn.

Rows 9. Ch 4, put 3 dcs in the ch sp, * ch 1, put 3 dcs in the next ch space,* repeat from *-* until you come to the last ch space, ch 1, put a dc in the top 3rd chain from the previous row. <5 granny clusters>

Row 10. Ch 3, put 2 dcs in the ch space, *ch 1, put 3 dcs in the next ch space,* repeat until you come to the last ch space, put 2 dcs in the last, put a dc in the 5th ch up from the granny cluster below. <6 granny clusters> Cut your tail, tie it off, and weave in your tail.

Rows 11-14. Repeat rows 9 and 10. At the end of row 14 you will tie off your color.

Rows 15-32. Repeat rows 9-14. During these rows you will switch colors every 6 rows. You should have 6 rows of each of the 4 colors when you are done with row 32.

Thirdly: The part after

Rows 33-40. Repeat rows 2-8. This is the repeat of 2 rows of each color.

Rows 41-64. Repeat rows 9 through 32. You should have 6 rows of each of the 4 colors when you’re done with row of 64.

Fourthly: You’re basically repeating the part after a bunch of times

Rows 65-88. repeat rows 33-40, you will repeat those rows 2 more times to reach 88 rows. This is the repeat of 2 rows of each of the 4 colors. You should have 12 rows with the each color repeated 3 times by row 88.

Rows 89-112. These rows will be a repeat of rows 9-32. You should have 6 rows of each of the 4 colors.

Rows 113-120. These rows will be a repeat of rows 33-40. This is the repeat of 2 rows of each of the 4 colors.

Rows 121-144. These rows will be a repeat of rows 9-32. You should have 6 rows of each of the 4 colors.

Rows 145-152. These final rows will be a repeat for rows 33-40. This is the repeat of 2 rows of each of the 4 colors.

Lastly: Weaving in the ends (ekkk)

Now for the fun part of this spooky crochet striped scarf pattern. The end weaving, I think that’s almost as scary as a horror movie. Honestly, I just scared myself thinking about it…

I know it seems daunting, but after a while you get this almost zen feeling. I threw on Corpse Bride while I wove them all in and it didn’t seem quite so bad.

That’s it! You are left with a beautifully spooky crochet striped scarf that will keep you nice and warm on that cold fall to winter evening.

making a fringe

You can add a fringe to the ends if you want. I decided to keep mine without them, but here’s how I add fringes to things.

Just trim the ends so that the fringe is even.

Well that about wraps this post up, Will you make this scarf in the colors I did, or change them out for different ones? Let me know in the comments. If you make this pattern or any of my others, then be sure to tag me on Instagram so I can see what you made! I’ll share your post in my story!
