During a recent trip to Hobby Lobby, in my current quest to branch out and add more colored yarns to my patterns, I came across Yarn Bee Dazzling yarn. Most of the color options didn’t do much for me, but a skein of “Morning Haze” practically jumped off the shelf and into my cart (you’ve had that happen before too, right?). It is soooo pretty! The steely purple, blue and gray color changes are long and subtle (just how I like them), and a continuous metallic thread gives the yarn such a pretty reflective finish. It is definitely on the lighter side of the #4 worsted category, comparable to the feel of Caron Simply Soft or Bernat Satin.

When I first started playing with it, I was afraid that my 3rd loop stitches would get completely lost in the busyness of the yarn. And while they certainly don’t jump off the scarf, one of the things I love about the finished product is the understated texture that is magnified when the light hits it in a certain way.

Of course, this pattern would be beautiful in a solid-colored yarn as well, and I may try that next.

Difficulty: Easy

Finished Size: 7" tall x 60" around

Hook: H (5.00mm)

Yarn: Approximately 440 yards of Yarn Bee Dazzling Yarn (<2 skeins) in "Morning Haze". Dazzling is a lightweight #4 yarn, with a very similar feel to Caron Simply Soft. It is sold at Hobby Lobby stores.

Gauge: 8 rows of 8 HHDC = 2" square

You'll also need: Yarn needle

Abbreviations Used:
   ST
 (stitch)
   SL ST (slip stitch)
   CH (chain)
   HDC (half double crochet)
   HHDC (herringbone half double crochet; see "special stitch" below)

Special Stitch:
HHDC - Herringbone Half Double Crochet. Here's how you do it:

HHDC: Yarn over, insert hook into stitch. Yarn over, pull loop through stitch AND through first loop on hook (this is similar to a slip stitch motion). Two loops remain on hook. Yarn over and pull through both loops.

(If you need additional help, Moogly has an excellent video tutorial here. Please note that while her video considers the CH2 at the beginning of rows as a stitch, the pattern below does not.)

Notes:
(1) This pattern is written in American Standard Terms.
(2) Pattern is worked in rows, then seamed at the end.
(3) To find the "3rd loop" (as mentioned in Round 4 and every four rows after that), insert your hook into the loop that sits just below the top loop that is closest to you. (Also called the Camel Stitch or RibHDC.)

    Your cowl is stunning! I must check out that yarn😊😊😊

    • Kimberly West September 17, 2016, 10:07 am

      Very Pretty‼️

  • Cecelia Yinger September 17, 2016, 10:05 am

    Does this scarf come in a knitted pattern? I am not very adept crocheting.

    • Rebecca September 17, 2016, 10:54 am

      It doesn’t, sorry! I don’t knit 🙂

  • Linda September 17, 2016, 10:10 am

    Thank for the pattern when I do crochet I do it for my own pleasure and for myself. Thank again for your faith and kindness

  • Amanda September 17, 2016, 10:13 am

    I’m so excited about this scarf! I can’t wait to make it! Thank you!

  • Margery Zeller September 17, 2016, 11:31 am

    Does the Yarn Bee Dazzling pill? I have been so disappointed when projects I have spent hours on do not hold up well in the long run…especially when they are gifts. [ugh!]

    Some reviewers have given Yarn Bee Dazzling poor reviews saying that it is loosely spun and only 3 ply. I’m thinking it will split easily when working with it. Your thoughts?

    I love your patterns and appreciate your generosity in sharing they freely. I have used a number of them for charity hats. Thank you!

    • Rebecca September 17, 2016, 12:53 pm

      Not sure about pilling. This is my first experience with Yarn Bee. It’s certainly not a luxury yarn, but it isn’t luxury-priced, either 🙂 I didn’t have much trouble with splitting, at least not any more so than with Caron Simply Soft.

      • Margery Zeller September 17, 2016, 1:58 pm

        Thank you for the prompt response, Rebecca. I realized after I posted that I should have asked, do you find Yarn Bee fuzzes easily? What care instructions do you recommend for the Yarn Bee?

        • Rebecca September 18, 2016, 8:21 am

          I can’t say for sure as I haven’t worn it all day yet (too hot here). However, it has been packed and gone along on two photo shoots and been stuffed into boxes twice… and there hasn’t been any fuzzing yet, so that’s promising. The yarn claims to be machine washable, however I would do so carefully.

  • Audrey September 17, 2016, 11:39 am

    This scarf is wonderful., I must go to Hobby Lobby for that gorgeous yarn. I think it makes the scarf special! thanks for this pattern early enough to use for my Christmas gift list!

  • Mary Coates September 17, 2016, 7:24 pm

    very beautiful scarf. I am going to use Caron Simply Soft multicolor and make it. Thanks so much for sharing.

  • Jessica September 18, 2016, 1:15 am

    I so love all of your patterns as soon as I get paid I’m going buy the all access pass. My only hope is that your beautiful creative mind can come up with some more patterns using lion brand scarfie, and the new Caron cakes yarns. I’ve been searching the web to no real avail. I’m very willing to test as many patterns as you would like.

    Thank you
    Jessica

    • Rebecca September 18, 2016, 8:18 am

      Thanks Jessica! I haven’t had any luck with the Caron Cakes as my Michaels was sold out the first time I went. I haven’t decided how I feel about them yet, but it sounds like Caron will be making them indefinitely so hopefully I’ll get a chance to try. 🙂 I do love the Scarfie, and that can be substituted in any of my patterns that use #5 yarn (just check your gauge!).

  • Lainey September 20, 2016, 12:15 am

    I’m having a hard time with the RibHHDC.. I’m crocheting into the loop directly underneath the top loops and its perfectly flat on the back, but on the front there doesnt appear to be much of a rib, but you can still kind of see it. Am I doing this correctly? I am using the same yarn that you used except its the pastel color instead of the morning haze.

    • Rebecca September 20, 2016, 11:00 am

      The yarn itself is light and flat, and the texture on this scarf is very understated. It’s very possible that you’re doing it right, but if you want to know for sure, I would just practice the stitch on a swatch with a solid, light-colored yarn (just do a couple small rows of HDC, then try the 3rd loop HDC). You should be able to see it clearly then. 🙂

  • Joanna September 24, 2016, 9:56 pm

    I am having trouble finding the third loop stitch. I tried watching videos, but the stitch looks different.

  • Fran Simpson October 4, 2016, 2:58 pm

    What is the camel st?

  • Fran Simpson October 4, 2016, 3:05 pm

    What is the camel st and how donyoubdonit

    • Rebecca October 4, 2016, 5:20 pm

      Instructions on how to find the Third Loop (also known as the Camel Stitch) are given in the notes section of this pattern, Note #3.

  • Carina October 10, 2016, 2:48 pm

    Are we allowed to sell finished products made with the pattern? Of course giving you credit for the pattern.

    • Rebecca October 11, 2016, 10:22 am

      Yes, absolutely 🙂

  • Penny October 10, 2016, 9:44 pm

    Hi Rebecca, beautiful scarf and it is going to be my fall project! One question though. In some camel stitch tutorials I have seen, they pick up the third loop behind the back loop. If I am reading the directions correctly, you are picking up the third loop beneath the front loop, correct?

    • Rebecca October 11, 2016, 10:23 am

      There is really only one “third loop” that’s comfortably accessible. Whether it’s on the front or the back of the stitch just depends on if you’re working in the round and not turning (it would be behind in that case) or if you’re turning each row (which would put it at the front). 🙂

  • Kathy October 22, 2016, 8:50 pm

    As soon as I find where to print this, am happy to have lt.

  • Michelle November 10, 2016, 3:00 pm

    Rebecca, thanks for such a beautiful pattern! Do you think this will work as a regular scarf and not an infinity scarf? I’ve started making it and it’s curling up on me. I’m hoping it will eventually flatten out. Thanks!!

    • Rebecca November 14, 2016, 12:29 pm

      I think it would be fine, although this yarn is a bit susceptible to curling, but the infinity style really takes care of it. I’m not sure how well it would lay as a regular scarf.
