Crochet Pattern: Mimosa Scarf

By Amy Yarbrough – 13 Comments
When I first received a ball of Homespun in Mimosa I wasn’t sure I liked it but by the time I started rolling it into a ball I saw the color change and loved it immediately. This scarf exhibits its color change perfectly. Aside from that, its a wonderful addition to a spring wardrobe, or even early fall. Where I live I wouldn’t recommend it for summer, but I’m sure there are people in cooler areas that would find it a great choice for those summer months. Either way, the netting pattern to the scarf gives it a delicate look, while the bulky weight of the yarn is light.

Skill Level:

Finished Size: 70 inches (178 cm) long


Chunky Weight Yarn (approximately 80 yards)
Crochet Hook M (9.00 mm)
Yarn Needle

1 row = 70รขโ‚ฌย (178 cm) long

    Stunning, Amy! Luckily I have some some Homespun and when I finish current project, this is next. Skimmed the directions and appears quite easy. Can’t wait to get started. Thanks for the lovely scarf pattern, Amy. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    I love this! Will be great here in Australia where we are in Autumn heading for Winter. I don’t have Homespun in Mimosa but a lovely pea shoot green colour so I think that would look lovely too in this pattern. I also have a lot of Homespun Thick +Quilt in a mixed berry colourway – do you think this same pattern would work with the super bulky version also? Many thanks, Suzanne.

      Hi Suzanne! I’m glad you like my pattern.

      Yes, I think using a bulkier yarn would work just as well. Just keep in mind the finished product will be more bulky than the one in the pattern.

    Correction: I meant to say Thick + Quick! Sorry ๐Ÿ˜‰

    I love this idea, as i have been working on an i-cord version that just wraps around your neck as many times as you want depending on the length you make it, now this seems to be a quick and easy pattern, as i’m only just learning the language of crochet, i’m looking forward to making this.. but i will be doing it in 8 ply wool ,which i think may give it a bit more bulk, which is your worsted weight .. i live in Australia also in the New England region, in a town called Glen Innes NSW.
    Thanks for your inspiring ideas
    Cheers Sharolynn

    Just completed this quick and simple scarf for my daughter! I made this in Homespun Tudor…has a real Spring look. My daughters and I are short so I fashioned a large knot at both ends. Looks great and I know she’ll love it. Amy, thanks again for sharing your pattern.

    It looks beautuful and I’d love to make this but I am a beginner and am not sure I understand the directions. In most things I’ve done, at the end of a row there is a “turning chain” or chains. Here there doesn’t seem to be but instead the beginnng of the next row will start with chain stitches. Do I turn the work after each row and then chain? Or for this patterm does it even matter whether the chain is done first and then the work is turned? I realize this is a real neophyte’s question but thank you for answering!

    • Hi Lizzie!
      No problem, everyone has to start somewhere. And this is a really good pattern for beginners; don’t let the wording hang you up. ๐Ÿ™‚

      This pattern is made in a continual round, like a spiral staircase. It just continues in the same way for a few rounds and you can keep track of the rounds by marking them. (I like Susan Bates’ markers).

      I hope this has been helpful. If you still have some questions, don’t hesitate to ask.

    Thanks Amy! Very helpful. In fact, I’ve already made the scarf! I used a Homespun-type yarn (different brand) in light blue, yellow, and light purple. It will be a gift and I think it will be wonderful for spring in our climate. Some things I learned that may help folks who are as new to crochet as I am: As you suggested, I did use stitch markers. I found them especially helpful to keep track of the number of ch sts I made in the foundation chain. (I put one every 30th st and a different color one at the 150th st) One thing I had trouble with (not the fault of the pattern or instructions but my inexperience) was counting stitches to place the sc in Row 1. I wouldn’t have had trouble had I been using a smooth thick solid-color yarn but it was sometimes hard for me to see individual sts with a Homespun-type varigated yarn. When I make this again (and I will!) I plan to graph out where the sc will go and place st markers there instead as I make the foundation chain. That way, I can use those markers to keep track of the st count as I make the foundation ch, but I also can leave all of them in while I do Row 1. I am sure more experienced folks won’t need to do this but it may help newbies.

    • I’m glad you like the pattern!

      I remember when I first started using Homespun. It was really hard for me to find the stitches and I got really exasperated, but the more I have used it the more familiar I have become with the yarn. You learn to be able to feel the stitches, literally, and this helps immensely.

      Have fun crocheting!

      What a great idea I also had trouble so I gave up but now I’ll start again with the markers. Thank you
