Amanda’s Basket of Noro Scarf

A free  pattern for a simple scarf, using two balls of Noro Silk Garden Sock Yarn and a basketweave pattern.  I don’t think I can claim copyright over this pattern as it is VERY simple and there are a couple of Basketweave scarves around but if you are going to use it, please give me a reference!

This is a pattern written for an advanced beginner, as you will be using Front and Back Post Stitches. There are some good online tutorials to show you how to, if you don’t already know. Post stitches are nothing to be afraid of, and the way the colours in the Noro work up are really set off by the Basketweave.

A ball of Silk Garden Sock yarn is approx 320m long and the two balls made up a scarf that was 2.4m long, I did have some left over because I wanted my scarf to end at the same colour that I started on.


Basketweave Stitch is worked over multiples of 3 stitches, and you will make a Half- double crochet at the far end of a row.  I will point out that even though I am Australian I do use US terminology, so please make sure you’re with me now.


Starting Chain : 19+ 1.  I used a 6.5mm hook as I wanted a fairly open drape-type fabric.


Row 1 : Single Crochet all the way across. Turn.

Row 2: Chain 2, In first 3 SCs make 1 Front Post DC  (X) in each. In next 3 SCs make 1 Back Post Dc (O)  in each. Continue across to last stiscarf detailtch, and Half DC  (Y), turn.  You will have 


Row 3. Chain 2. In the first three BP DCs, make 1 FPDC in each. In the next three FP DCs, make 1 BPDC in each. Continue across to last stitch (which will be the ch 2) and  HDC, turn.  This should cause ridges to form across the work.

Row 4: Chain 2, In first three FPDCs, make 1 BP DC in Each, in next three BPDCs, make 1 FPDC in ea. Continue across to last stitch, HDC, turn.

Row 5:  C hain 2 , In the first three BPDCs, make 1 BPDC in each (this starts the vertical ridge off for the next repeat), make 1 FPDC in each of the three FPDCs, repeat all the way across and HDc in turning chain, turn.

Then repeat rows 2 -5 until the scarf is the desired length, then turn, chain 1 and sc all the way across. Finish off. And Presto, a scarf that works up in blocks of colour and texture.
