This crochet C2C scarf is a free crochet pattern by Nana’s Crafty Home for a lovely, open and lacier corner to corner crochet pattern.
The Lavender Garden C2C Crochet Scarf uses the double crochet standard corner to corner (c2c) crochet method with a slight variation. Every other row you skip blocks by chaining which creates open blocks for a light and lacy look.
If you aren’t familiar with the c2c method, I have all the tutorials you need to get started working on this one-skein project.

Crochet C2C Scarf Yarn Information
I love Yarnspirations Caron Cotton Cakes* (available exclusively at Michael’s stores) – one of my favorite go-to yarns for several years now. And this crochet scarf only uses one cake! I also have several more designs using this self-striping, #4 medium weight cotton/acrylic blend – the Boho Market Bag, Gathering Rosebuds Bag, Sea Shells by the Sea Shore Bag & the Retro Duster Vest. This cotton blend yarn makes a light and breathable fabric with lovely drape. A must for warmer weather!

You can easily substitute your favorite medium worsted weight yarn for this scarf. If using a smaller or larger weight yarn you can follow the pattern and just add or subtract rows as necessary to reach desired finished size.
This crochet c2c scarf pattern lends itself really well to a self-striping yarn. And using a self-striping yarn really takes all the “work” out of color work!
This scarf is completely customizable to size – just stop when you reach the size desired. One cake of the Caron Cotton Cakes yielded me a scarf with an approximate finished size of 50” x 38.5” x 60”. That’s a wing span of 60″ – perfect size for a wrap around neck scarf.
I didn’t add any special edging, fringe or tassels. I really didn’t want to weigh the scarf down with any extras. However, that is completely up to you – I think large tassels on each end would look amazing – or even just one tassel at the center point of the triangle.
Working this stitch pattern yields an asymmetrical shape instead of a traditional triangle. Due to the fact that you are working a row of “empty” blocks, your scarf ends up gaining more height over width. So, if you want to adapt this stitch pattern to make a blanket (which would be fantastic by the way!), just take that into account. If you begin decreasing on both ends at the same time you will end up with a rectangle shape – not a square. If you want a square shape, begin decreasing first on the taller end, then continue increasing width until it measures the same as the height. Continue decreasing to end.
