Are you a Caron Cake fan? I am now after making this scarf. This was my first Caron Cake and let me tell you, it has definitely lived up to the hype. The yarn is soft and easy to work with and the colors are so pretty. I love the little flecks of color throughout.
I decided to pair this cake with the Floret Stitch. I have a used this stitch in the past of couple times (way before I started this blog) and it is one of my favorites. It has such a fun texture. You will make a row of double crochets and then a row of alternating slip stitches and double crochets. It is this second row that gives this stitch its texture. If you want a photo tutorial on how to work this stitch you can find one HERE.

Row 1: Dc in 3rd ch from hook and in each chain across, turn. (25 dc)
Row 2: ch 1 (counts as 1 sl st), *dc in next st, sl st in next. Repeat from * across. Turn. ( 25 stitches)
Row 3: Ch 2, dc in each stitch across, working your last dc in turning ch 1. Turn. ( 25 dc)
Row 4-End: Repeat rows 2 and 3 until you run out of “cake.” Make sure to end on a row 2. Mine ended up being 150 rows.
On last row, finish off and leave a long tail for sewing. Whip stitch short ends of scarf together. Weave in ends.
That’s it! Easy-peasy. I really enjoyed this quick scarf project and I hope you do too. Don’t forget to share pictures of your scarf with The Unraveled Mitten on Facebook and Instagram!
The scraf is pretty. Will you let me know which Caron Cake yarn was used?
I believe it was the color Rainbow Sherbet.
Being a NEWBIE to crocheting this is confusing for me. I dont undertand the couting and the differnt chain ups. Is there an easier newbie scarf? I lovet hsi one that is why I want to try it yet too confsuing for me. i only know the beggining chain stchch and I am not good at couting when you go to the second row and can do a double stucictyh. I seem to always count wrong and the item I am trying to do is way off.
Hello! Would this fit an 8 year old and a 5 year old?
I just tried making this and my edges aren’t even. I’m really lost on how the ch 2 doesn’t count as a stitch and the ch1 does.
The ch 1 doesnt count because it is in a spot where a sl st would be. The “ch 2 and dc in the same st as ch 2” replaces a the more typical “ch 3 dc in next”
Pressed enter before I was ready I was ready, oops. Using and not counting the ch 2 fills in the space at the beginning of the row vs having a hole if you use a ch 3. Does that clear it up at all? So you for the ch 2 rows you put a dc in the same st at the base of the ch 2 but on the ch 1 rows skip that stitch at the base of the ch 1.

My cake yarn color changed in the middle of the row. Should I take that row out and start it in the new color? Thanks.
That is totally up to you. I let mine change wherever…. mostly so I didn’t have to weave in more ends. ?
I don’t think the overall look is compromised in this type of a scarf to let it changet whenever, but if it bugs you, then force a color change at the end of the row. The extra few inches you’ll have would work great for sewing on accent buttons for other projects, if it more than a yard, I save them for accent stripes on amigurumi.
