The In Stitches Scarf is part of the 2021 Halloween CAL with CAL Central Crochet.

How the 2021 Halloween CAL Works

Every Monday and Thursday from August 23 through September 30, 2021, we’ll share a free crochet pattern for a Halloween-themed project. These patterns include decorations, toys, costume elements, and more.

How To Join the 2021 Halloween CAL

  • You can join in by crocheting the patterns as you have time.
  • Share your progress and post pictures of your finished projects. Tag your projects and posts #CALCentralCrochet on all social media.
  • If you’d like to chat with other crocheters, join the CAL Central Crochet Facebook group, or visit this thread in the CAL Central Ravelry group.
  • By the end of the CAL, you’ll have up to 12 spooky Halloween projects. 

Visit Underground Crafter to learn more about the prizes, enter the end-of-CAL giveaway, and to get links to each Halloween CAL pattern as it is released.

October Can Be Cold

This is the time of year when I’m never sure if I should open the windows for fresh air, or turn on the heat. Usually the heat has come on before the month is over here At Home. That’s why I love this Halloween crochet project: it can be used for more then just a Halloween costume. All of October is spooky season, and the In Stitches Scarf is a warm accessory that you can wear for the whole season. 

Trick or Treat

I don’t know about you, but when I hand out candy, I like to at least be dressed with some Halloween spirit. I may not always get my full costume on, but I know this year my In Stitches Scarf will help me get my scare on. This free crochet pattern will help you get your scare on too.

I believe free patterns should be easy to follow. Actually, I believe all patterns should be easy to follow. After all, DIY is supposed to be fun, not just a way to save money. The In Stitches Scarf is a quick and easy crochet pattern which includes a great little graphic to help with sewing the stitches. Just follow the dot-to-dot image and success will be yours.

Pattern Notes

  • Read through all instructions before beginning.
  • When making color changes, make the first 3 sl sts of the Row in the previous color, then make the next sl st in the new color.
  • Leave a 10″ tail at the start and end of each color change, too long is better than too short.
  • Row counts are at the end of each Row after the period, but only if the count has changed from the previous Row. {count here}
  • Chs and sl sts are not included in Row counts unless specified.

Halloween Crochet Scarf Pattern

This C2C creation is made in 3 sections, starting from a corner out. First is the Double Increase section which causes both sides adjacent to the corner (Sides A & B) to grow longer, next is the Decrease/Increase section which causes one side (Side A) to stay the same length and just get taller (creating Side C), and the other side (Side B) to continue growing longer, and last is the Double Decrease section which brings both sides together by continuing to bring one side (Side C) up, and stopping growth on the other side (Side C) and bringing it over (creating Side D) to make the opposite corner from the starting corner.
