This Hearts Aflutter Scarf crochet pattern is a little bit of what we all need in our lives — happy, cheerful and fun! The scarf itself is made with a very simple v-stitch easy enough for the beginning crocheter! A v-stitch for Valentine’s Day seemed appropriate and I love how it turned out!
The scarf portion of this pattern is simple and easy so I wanted something unique and different to take it to the next level and I thought of doing a heart fringe. The hearts dangle off the ends of the scarf and really do flutter!
I have included video tutorials below for both the v-stitch and the heart fringe if you like a visual.
The yarn is one of my go-to favorites — I Love this Yarn. This yarn is economical yet soft (even before washing!) and there are so many colors to choose from! However, any 4-weight yarn would be a good substitute in this pattern. In fact, gauge is really not important at all so if you only have sport weight or 3-weight yarn on hand — go for it! The scarf would just be a little smaller in size than mine. Use what you have in your stash no need to buy special yarn for this project! I made another scarf in Caron Cake’s Cherry Chip so the color changes are built in and it looks great but I am partial to the color changes in my final scarf.
Since I hate weaving in ends I carried the yarn up the end of the scarf and then did a simple single crochet border around the edge of the scarf which hid the yarn carry….very few yarn ends!
