The Jasmine Crochet Stitch was unexpectedly easier than I thought it would be. I tend to work more on the tighter side when it comes to knitting and crochet and I like my stitches snug. However, this stitch’s very rhythmic flow is very natural and relaxing.
The Jasmine Crochet Scarf was actually an unplanned project. I was testing the Jasmine stitch, which was a weekend discovery for me, and I had a new color of the Lion Brand Mandala Ombre Yarn that I have been raving about for weeks now.
The stitch pattern is a video tutorial that you can find here. The same link can also be found on my other post Jasmine Crochet Stitch. Both links are also on the bottom of this post.
Here are project details for the scarf and final measurements.
Lion Brand Mandala Ombre in color Happy
US H or 5.00mm crochet hook
Tapestry needle to weave in ends
Ch – chain
Yo – yarn over
Sc – single crochet
78 foundation clusters = 55-56 in (142 cm) scarf length 7 rows = 5 in (12.5 cm) scarf width
Make a slip knot, ch 1.
- 1A: Elongate the next stitch, about 1 inch (2.5 cm) long. Yo and insert hook through the ch, yo, pull through (3 loops on hook), yo and insert hook through the ch, yo, pull through (5 loops on hook).
- 1B: You will need to pull through the 5 loops on your hook but before you do that, pinch the working strand so you do not lose it in the process. While pinching this, yo and pull through the 5 loops. Insert the hook into the opening of the pinched strand, yo, pull through that pinched strand. You should have 2 loops on your hook. Yo, pull through the 2 loops to make a sc.
This completes the first cluster for your foundation.
- 2A: Elongate the stitch in the same manner. Yo and insert hook through the sc below (sc1 on the photo), yo, pull through (3 loops on hook), yo and insert hook through the sc for the second time, yo, pull through (5 loops on hook).
- 2B: Repeat 1B. This completes the second cluster.
Third and remaining clusters: Repeat 2A.
Once you have reached the desired number of foundation clusters, make 1 more cluster for the turning cluster.
3-Petal Cluster: After securing the turning cluster, repeat 2A (5 loops on hook). Keep the stitches elongated. Yo, insert hook into the last worked sc (sc2 on the photo), yo, pull through (7 loops on hook), yo and insert hook through the same sc for the second time, yo, pull through (9 loops on hook). Make sure your stitches are elongated. Okay, going for the last sc. Yo, insert hook into the next new sc (sc3 on the photo), yo, pull through (11 loops on hook), yo, insert the hook through the same sc for the second time, yo, pull through (13 loops on hook). Now it is time to pull through all 13 loops on your hook.
The following are the same photo but showing different aspects of it.
Remember to pinch the working strand before you pull through the loops. While pinching, yo and pull through the 13 loops. Insert the hook into the opening of the pinched strand, yo, pull through that pinched strand. You should have 2 loops on your hook. Yo, pull through the 2 loops to make a sc.
This completes the first 3 petal cluster. This is how it looks like. You will repeat this procedure for the 3-petal cluster until you reach the end of the row.
Below is the same photo showing the details of how the first 3 petal cluster was made.
Upon completing the first row, repeat the pattern for 6 more rows or until the width of your scarf reaches about 5 inches (12.5 cm).
Things to remember!
- Always make a turning cluster before starting on a new row. A turning cluster is worked the same way as a foundation cluster.
- Always pinch the working strand before pulling through the 13 loops.
- When making a cluster, always insert and pull through the same ch or sc twice.
- You will always have 13 loops on your hook for every 3 petal cluster.
I hope that you enjoy this pattern and scarf. Please let me know if you have questions. I would be happy to assist you!
Blessings and happy making!
