Catherine’s Diamond/Circle Crochet Scarf

This pattern has also NOT been tested by anyone else so crochet at your own risk. If you do make this pattern, let me know as I’d love to see it! The Ravelry entry is here so go ahead and queue it up. The Catherine’s Diamond stitch is from a stitch dictionary and not my own creation. Comments have been turned off due to overwhelming spam.

  • Ch 33
  • Work Catherine’s Diamond Pattern to desired scarf length.
  • Ending with a Row 4 will create border on short edge. Do not turn at end of last Row 4. You will be continuing in a circle around scarf to create border.
  • Work border on other three sides of scarf. *9 dcs in center of half circle, sc in sc* repeat from * to * along long side, short side and final long side. The corners will have only one sc in them.
  • Cut end, pull through last loop and weave in. Wash and block as desired.

I MIGHT at some point take some pictures of me crocheting the Catherine’s Diamond stitch but it’s not a priority right now. Instead I made a “quick and dirty” chart of the first three rows of the stitch. Hopefully this helps with visualizing the stitch a little. And hopefully this doesn’t confuse anyone worse!
