Shockwave Scarf Pattern

For the next piece in the shockwave set, I wanted to do a scarf. The first scarf I made was loosely based off a scarf found in Fallout 4 (surprise surprise lol) but I wanted to add some texture to it.

I decided to do each fphdc row every eight rows instead of every four rows like I did with the Shockwave Beanie, that way the scarf didn’t seem too busy.

2 skeins of any worsted weight yarn (I used Red Heart Stripes for my first one, I love the color changes!)

H/8 5 mm hook

Embroidery scissors

Finishing needle

Terms (US)

ch – chain

fphdc – front post half double crochet

hdc – half double crochet

st(s) – stitch(es)


Since it’s a scarf I don’t believe gauge is necessarily important; if you want it wider or narrower just adjust how many chains you do at the beginning (if you’d like to know, though, my gauge was 13 rows and 16 hdc in a 4″ square).

If you want to do a contrasting color for the raised stitches you need to change colors the row before the fphdc row. So rows 8, 16, 24, 32, 40… etc.


Row 1 – ch 28, hdc in 3rd ch from hook and in each ch across. Turn. (25 hdc)

Row 2 – ch 1, hdc in same st. Hdc in each st across. Turn. (25 hdc)

Row 3-8 – Repeat row 2

Row 9 – ch 1, fphdc in first post (the one directly below the ch 1 you just made). fphdc in each st across. Do not fphdc in the ch 1 at the beginning of the previous row. Turn. (25 fphdc)

Rows 10-16 – Repeat row 2.

Row 17 – Repeat row 9.

Rows 18-24 – Repeat row 2.

Row 25 – Repeat row 9.

Continue the row repeats until your scarf is as long as you like. Make sure you end your scarf before you do a fphdc row to make it symmetrical. Basically with how the math works out, you should end on a row that is divisible by 8.

Border – Turn your scarf so that you’re working down the side of it. The ribs created by the fphdc should be facing you. ch 1, hdc in side of the last row you completed. hdc in each row down. 3 hdc in corner. Rotate the scarf so that the first row is facing you. hdc in each ch across. 3 hdc in corner, rotate your work so that you’re working on the other long side. hdc in each row up. 3hdc in corner, turn your work so that you’re working in the last row of the scarf. hdc in each st across. 3 hdc in last corner, sl st to top of first hdc. Fasten off and weave in ends.

For this scarf I crocheted 168 rows (168/8 = 21)

It’s a little shorter than the pink and white one above.
