Textured Shell Scarf

Edit April 16, 2021: I have created a video tutorial for this scarf. It is at the bottom of this blog post.

I am back from my trip. It is always good to go home and see my family. So of the three projects I brought I got one done and another on almost done. 

So the project I got done is a textured shelled scarf. It got it finished in time to give it to my grandson. It is a simple pattern and I am sharing it with you know. 

Worsted Weight Yarn
Size I hook

Ch 29 (if you want it longer, add a number dividable by 6)
Slip stitch 2nd chain from hook *skip 2 stitches, 5 sc in next stitch, skip 2 stitches, slip stitch in next stitch* repeat, end with skip 2 stitches,  3 sc in last stitch.

Now it is important to work in the back loops, it is how you are getting the textured effect.

Ch 1,  slip stitch in next sc *skip 2 sc 5 sc in next slip stitch, skip 2 sc, slip stitch in next sc* repeat, end with skip 2 sc, 3 sc in last slip stitch

Repeat this row for desired length.

You could use this pattern for a dishcloth.


  1. Beautiful scarf, you did a great job!

  2. Will be making one shortly. Love the stitch

  3. Trying this for neighbor, she loves crocet items!

  4. Mine sure didn't come out looking like that, so I frogged it after ten rows ! ! ! I'm gonna try it again.

  5. Mine didn't look anything like this. I tried 4 or 5 times. Is there a video somewhere for this? Anonymous, did you ever figure it out?

    1. There is no video for this, the only thing I could think of is make sure you ar working in the back loops.

    3. I have tried sooo many times to make this work, but no matter what I do, it does not look like that. Something's just not right, but I don't know what it is. I know it's not the back loop thing like you suggested. I have done that every time. If there is ever a video made, I would love to see it.

  6. I really love this pattern I am currently making one for my husbands aunt as a Christmas gift. I did make a little change in the pattern, where you would normally slip stitch I did a sc, and where it was a sc I did a hdc.
