and a 6mm \ J hook to make your beginning chain (OPTIONAL)

100 grams / 3.5. oz

240 meters / 262 yards

 

ch = Chain

sl st = Slip Stitch

st = Stitch

sc = Single Crochet

* = Repeat what is in between the stars for the rest of the row

This stitch is done in multiples of 2 + 1

See Below after ROW 3 for color option ideas.

 

Special Stitch: Glover stitch – Insert your hook into the next stitch, pull up a loop (2 loops on hook ) YO and insert your hook into next stitch and pull up a loop ( 4 loops on hook ) YO and pull through all 4 loops and ch 1.

 

At the very end of the row always remember to chain 2 because one of these chains will count as your first stitch of the row.

This stitch is done in multiples of 2 + 1

 

To start:

Ch in multiples of 2 + 1 until desired width of scarf is reached. For my scarves I used 21 chains and I am basing the pattern off of this.

 

Row 1

Sc in 2nd ch from hook and in all sts (20 sts)

 

Row 2

* Insert your hook into the next stitch, pull up a loop (2 loops on hook ) YO and insert your hook into next stitch and pull up a loop ( 4 loops on hook ) YO and pull through all 4 loops and ch 1. * repeat for row. At the end of your row ch 2 and turn.

Row 3

* Insert your hook into front loop only of next stitch, pull up a loop (2 loops on hook ) YO and insert your hook into next stitch going through both loops and pull up a loop ( 4 loops on hook ) YO and pull through all 4 loops and ch 1. * repeat for row. At the end of your row ch 2 and turn. See picture below for help if needed.

 

At the very end of the row always remember to chain 2 because one of these chains will count as your first stitch of the row.

You want to repeat row 3 to continue project. Always be sure your going into the correct loops and chaining when you need to.

After you reach desired length, I single crocheted the last row to finish.

 

COLORING OPTIONS:

Glover Stitch Scarf 6

 

I used two methods of coloring for each scarf. The first one I used a site called Random Stripe Generator to randomize my stripes for me. Check out the site here http://www.biscuitsandjam.com/stripe_maker.php

1: It’s very easy to use, first you pick what colors your using, choose ones as close to the colors you want to use as possible.

2: Next you choose how many rows MAX do you want your stripes to be. So for instance if you choose 5, then the stripes will never be MORE THAN 5 stripes, but will be 1 – 5 rows before a color change.

3: Next you need to pick how many rows that will be generated for you, half a scarf is about 100 rows, so I recommend changing this number to at least 200.

You can keep refreshing your browser to have them generate another one until you find one that you like. Once you find one you can push CTRL P to print.

When you reach desired length of scarf, single crochet for the very last row to finish.

Keep in mind that this method leaves you tails to sew in at the end.

The Second Method of coloring my other scarf was to change colors every row. As you can see by the picture below, one row naturally flows into the next, where your color mixes together each row for a nice effect! Let me show you how I did this. This is using 3 different colors.

 

Glover Stitch Scarf 2

 

Start your scarf as before, make your ch and sc your first row all using the same color.

 

Row 2

Then CHANGE COLORS for row 2, change colors by pulling your new color through the loop and working with new color (see tutorial if you need help with this method of changing colors) DO NOT CUT OLD COLOR OFF

Work row 2 as normal

 

Row 3

CHANGE COLORS again using the same method as before. DO NOT CUT OLD COLOR OFF work this row as normal.

Now that you have all 3 colors attach and in play, this is how you will be working with your colors to keep them going.

When you reach the end of your row, you will see the next color you need two rows down. Grab up new color and insert your hook in the row below (the ch 2 from now on) Pull up a loop and ch 1 with this new color (see pictures below)

 

Glover Stitch Scarf 3

 

After you ch 1 you pull your new color through the loop of your old color and ch 2. Turn and start your Glover stitch as normal.

 

Glover Stitch Scarf 4

 

You will change rows like this every time, never cut your yarn until you are finished with the whole scarf.

Changing colors this way helps not having to work in so many tails, plus it adds a nice look on the side of your scarf.

 

Glover Stitch Scarf 5

 

I ended my scarf in the same color as I began it. When it was the length I wanted it and I had made it back up to my brown, instead of doing another Glover stitch row, just do 2 rows of single crochets to finish the scarf.
