Wandering Arches Scarf
designed by Kim Guzman © Jan. 2018
Technique: Regular Crochet
6.5″ x 60″
In stitch pattern, 14 sts for 7 rows measures approximately 4″ square.
- (A) Red Heart “Super Saver” (100% acrylic, aran size 4 weight): 1 skein or approx. 236 yards required (shown in grey heather)
- Suggested hook size: 7mm
- Yarn needle
Thank you to Red Heart for providing the yarn used in this project.
To increase or decrease the width, chain any multiple of 4 then add 5.
If you prefer, you can substitute a beginning chain 2 instead of a beginning chain 3 on odd rows.
I’ve indicated the odd row side as the right side of the project solely because I liked the look of that side better. In truth, both sides are lovely and you can take your pick.
V-Stitch (v-st): (dc, ch 2, dc) in indicated chain or stitch.
Front Post Double Crochet (fpdc): Yarn over, insert hook to the side of the indicated stitch, move hook around the back of the stitch and out the other side of same stitch, yarn over, pull loop through, [yarn over, pull through 2 loops on hook] twice.

Many of you have written to me to ask how you can help support CrochetKim. A Patreon account was suggested but I thought it would be better to provide ad-free PDFs of my patterns so you would get something in return. I'm steadily working on adding PDFs to all my patterns and I've also made this compilation available at a discounted price. You can, of course, view, print, paste to a word processor, convert to PDF, etc. on your own. This is just an extra feature so that people help out, if they want. Thank you to all of you for your overwhelming support and kindness these many years. Enjoy!
