Weekly Pattern Launch – “Cables and Braids” Oversized ScarfPatterns-Scarves
My first pattern for 2021 is a beautiful oversized scarf that I have named the “Cables and Braids” Oversized Scarf! I just love this one because of the heavy texture of the “Cables and Braids” stitch combination. It looks so intricate but it is really quite easy to work up. The stitches that are used for the pattern are chains, single crochet, double crochet and front post triple crochet. I also saw that the Red Heart Super Saver Ombre yarn was on sale last week and so I chose the beautiful Fiuscia color.
This scarf is very long, 70 inches, not including the fringes. So it is so warm and snuggly to wrap around your neck and shoulders. It is also great as a shawl draped over your shoulders.
So, here is the “Cables and Braids” Oversized Scarf pattern!
Hope you love this pattern and please share your creation with me and others in one or more of my pages. You can share here in the “Comments” section, on my Instagram Account or Facebook page using the hashtag, #lakeviewcottagekids. Also, please visit my Facebook Group and share there!

The Ch 1 or Ch 3 at the beginning of a row are considered the first stitch of the row.
Front Post Triple Crochet (FPTC):
YO twice; insert the hook from the front to back to front around the post of the specified stitch. Draw up a loop, and (YO and draw through 2 loops ) 3 times until there is one loop on the hook. This creates the Front Post Triple Crochet.
Skip the next stitch, FPtr in each of next 2 stitches. Working in front of last 2 stitches that you just made, FPtr in skipped st. This creates the Braid.

(See photos below.)
Repeat Rows 5 and 6 until the scarf measures .
Fasten off and weave in ends.
1. Cut 7 20-inch lengths of yarn.
2. Place these together in one group. (7 lengths)
3. Fold the group in half.
4. With the right side of the scarf facing you and using your crochet hook, pull the folded end of the yarn group through the first stitch space in the last row of sc at the bottom of the scarf. Pull it from right side to wrong side. Put the other end of the yarn group through the loop and pull tightly. The group of yarns is now attached to the scarf.
5. Because you folded the 7 yarn lengths in half, you now have 14 yarns that make your fringe bundle.
6. Repeat making fringe bundles until you have 12 for one end of the scarf. Attach them evenly across the bottom edge of the scarf.
Repeat these directions to make the fringe for the other end.
Lay finished scarf on flat surface and trim fringe on both ends to a length of 9 inches (or length of your choice). Be sure to make it as even as possible.
Enjoy your lovely new scarf!!
