Camillo's Scarf ~ free crochet pattern by Jessie At HomePin

Camillo’s Scarf
Crochet Pattern
Easy Skill Level
Designed by Jessie Rayot

While visiting my parents in Sicily this summer, my father asked me to make a scarf for his best friend’s birthday. We picked out yarn and a stitch pattern, and came up with this handsome scarf. It is quite simple to make, great for a traveling project. I have included a chart along with a written pattern. You can make this scarf with fingering/sock weight yarn, or you can change the starting chain length and use another weight yarn. This is a great unisex pattern to solve many of your gift~giving needs!

Ravelry Link

7″ x 74″ (easily adjustable)

Fingering/Sock weight, size 1 yarn, 250 g/950 yd/875 m

US 4/E/3.5mm

10 scv sts x 23 rows = 4″

Other supplies:
yarn needle to weave in ends

Stitches and Skills used:
ch ~ chain
sl st ~ slip stitch
sc ~ single crochet
scv ~ single crochet v~stitch (explained)
sp(s) ~ space(s)
st(s) ~ stitch(es)

Special Stitches:
Single Crochet V~Stitch (scv): (sc, ch-1, sc) all in one st.

Getting Started:
To adjust the width of the scarf, add or subtract 2 chains from the starting chain for each v~stitch you wish to add or subtract. To change the length, just stop when you have the length you wish. Using these methods, you can change the yarn and hook size to suit your needs.

There are no turning chains in this pattern. Just go with it, it will work fine.

The yarn used in the sample is Mondial Merino Classic in colorway 0989. It was purchased in a yarn shop in Sicily. I have not found an online source for the yarn that ships Stateside, so I have included some yarn substitution ideas from Amazon at the end of this pattern.

ch 38

Row 1: Scv in 2nd ch from hook, (skip 1, scv in next ch) to end. ~ {19 scv}

Row 2: Scv in the ch-1 sp of each scv across. ~ {19 scv}

Repeat row 2 to desired length.

Wear or give and enjoy!

Here is a chart as well. 🙂

  1. Ok you say increase starting chain by 2 for each v to increase width then said no starting chains just go with it…which is it? Starting chain or no starting chain? Did you mean there are no turning chains?

  2. This is such a beautiful scarf. I’m kind of a newbie crocheter, and have a question about yarn weight. The pattern says Fingering/Sock, size 2, but I’ve seen sock yarns as size 1, and fingering as size 3. Any advice would be appreciated.

    Given my yarn question, it’s such a disappointment that the yarn you used isn’t available in the U.S. I looked everywhere, and even contacted the manufacturer to see if they had a distributor here. Not only is there not a distributor, they’ve discontinued the yarn!
