1. Elenath Scarf

The name of this scarf may not seem familiar to everyone, however, it is perfectly fitted with the design. Sue Perez, the pattern creator, has named it in regards to the star stitches used, as Elenath means the “star host” in the Sindarin language invented by J.R.R. Tolkien. This scarf is not only warm, squishy and soft, but it is also magical and very extraordinary.

Single puff made into multiple stripes, that’s the short summary of this design by Crochet’n’Create. A very minimalistic look of the scarf makes it easy to style with all different outfits. The addition of the fringes on both ends creates some volume and more casual look. The pattern is written for the worsted weight yarn, but do not feel like you cannot experiment with that or with a hook size. A perfect mindless scarf pattern to follow and chill out.

3. Cube Filet Crochet Scarf

The filet crochet technique is mostly used in grocery bag projects or Summer cardigans and shrugs. It is known for being very lightweight, airy and flexible, as the loose structure tends to shrink and expand as needed. Nicole Riley has used it in her crochet scarf pattern making it a great accessory for mid-seasons, when some coverage is still needed, but you don’t want to get too warm.
