This asymmetrical crochet scarf is a free crochet pattern by Nana’s Crafty Home!

The Spring Lark Scarf is a fun and easy crochet scarf with lovely texture in light spring colors. A lovely layering option as we move to warmer weather!

This asymmetrical crochet scarf is worked from side to side, starting at the smallest end and working toward the long edge. Keeping the increase on the same side of the scarf will provide the asymmetrical shape.

Worked in simple stitches – single, double, picot and popcorn stitches. The picots provide a small pop of texture while the popcorn stitches create more dramatic pops of texture to give visual interest to this scarf.

You will typically see picots worked as a border or edging for crochet projects. However, for this scarf I am using it throughout the pattern – so unique! I have a complete photo and video tutorial for the picot stitch as well as a video on how to crochet the popcorn stitch in two colors. If you are having trouble viewing the video – you can find it on my YouTube Channel.

I used WeCrochet’s CotLin yarn* which is a cool and lightweight blend of cotton and linen that makes it perfect for warmer weather and great for layering in the spring. And it has absolutely gorgeous drape! This yarn was a pleasure to work with and I can’t wait to use it again in other designs.

Pattern Notes:

  • The csdc (chainless starting double crochet) is used in place of a chain 3 at the beginning of each row.  If desired, you can substitute a chain 3 for the csdc.
  • Stitch count increases by a count of 1 every row.
  • Stitch count should always be the row number + 1, for example row 3 = 4 sts, row 11 = 12 sts, etc.
  • Stitch increases are on the same side of the scarf creating the asymmetrical shape.
