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!

Adult – One Size Fits All
– 1 1/2 (10 oz./482 yards/440 m) skeins Aran weight (#4) yarn (Color – “Fiuschia” (I used Red Heart Super Saver “Ombre” for this scarf.)
Total yardage: Approximately 723 yards for the scarf and fringe
(This yarn is 100% Acrylic Yarn; Machine Washable.) – Crochet Hook, Size I/5.50 mm
– Yarn Needle (Used for working in loose yarn ends.)
Chain Stitch – ch
Single Crochet – sc
Double Crochet – dc
Front Post Triple Crochet – FPTC
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.
4 – inch square = 6 rows of double crochet stitches and 11 double crochet stitches in a 4 inch row
Finished Size: 12 inches wide X 70 inches long (not including fringe)
(This scarf is made using a Multiple of 8 + 4.)
Body of the Scarf
- Ch 36.
Row 1: Sc in second ch from the hook and in each remaining ch. Ch 3 (this counts as the first dc of the following row.) Turn. (35 st)
Row 2: Dc in each sc across the row. Ch 1. Turn. (35 st)
Row 3: Sc in each dc across the row. Ch 3. Turn. (35 st)
Row 4: Dc in the first 2 sts, *FPtr around the next dc in the dc row below. BR over the next 3 stitches in the dc row below, FPtr around the next st in the dc row below, dc in next 3 stitches.* Repeat from * to * across the row. Ch 1. Turn. (35 st)
Row 5: Sc in each st across the row. Ch 3. Turn. (35 st)
Row 6: Dc in first 2 stitches. *FPtr around next FPtr in the dc row below, BR over next 3 BR stitches in dc row below. (Create the BR stitch by: skip first FPtr, (FPtr over next FPtr) twice, FPtr over skipped FPtr; FPtr around next FPtr in the dc row below; dc in the next 3 stitches.*. Repeat from * to * acrosss the row. Ch 1. Turn. (35 st)
(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!!
