I loved making the Studio scoodie and have a bit of a thing for it’s texture. I felt like I wasn’t finished with that stitch pattern so I decided to add some colour work (I’m a sucker for a stripy scarf) and create a whole range! Today I bring you the free pattern for the Studio Stipe Scarf. Also in the range is the Studio Bun Hat Free Pattern or the downloadable set of 3 beanie patterns for the price of 1.

You can use any yarn for this project and just adjust the hook size and number of stitches to achieve the size you want. For this range I chose The Women’s Institute Soft and Smooth Aran (aff) yarn from Hobbycraft (aff) in teal and grey.
So without further chat from me, lets get prepared!
Before you start, you should know…
Using US terms, The pattern is worked by alternating extended dc (edc) and hdc stitches (see below for stitch explanations) along the length of the scarf, turning at the end and repeating so that the hdc is worked into the top of the edc from the row below and the edc is worked into the top of the hdc.
If you want to make the scarf longer or shorter you can add or remove stitches but make sure you have an odd number.
I would recommend checking after row 2 that your alternation of stitches is correct. It’s important this is right because it sets up the rest of the project. After this row you will be able to see from the stitch shape whether you should be working an hdc or edc.
5.5mm / I hook
Yarn: ~ 850 yds, 350g of Medium worsted weight yarn in two colours, referred to as A and B
In the item pictured I used about 300g / 700 yards of WI Soft and Smooth Aran (aff) yarn in grey (colour B) and about 50g / 150 yards in the teal (colour A)
Yarn needle & scissors
Finished size: about 70in x 9in
Standard Stitches & Abbreviations Used (US terms):
ch = chain
yo = yarn over
sc = single crochet
hdc = half double crochet
Foundation Single Crochet (fsc): You can find a written instructions and a tutorial for this stitch on my youtube channel here. If you struggle with this technique it can be replaced with making a chain of the number of stitches plus one, then sc in the 2nd chain from the hook and across to achieve the required number of stitches.
edc = extended double crochet: This is very similar to a double crochet but with a small extra step. Yo, insert hook, yo, pull up a loop (3 loops on hook), yo, pull through one loop (3 loops on hook), yo, pull through two loops (2 loops on hook), yo, pull through two loops.
Okay, that should be everything. Let’s get started!
