This is a free ruffled Boomerang Keyhole Scarf Crochet Pattern made with double crochet stitches in a boomerang asymmetrical shape, as well as worsted yarn.
Scarf Crochet Patterns do not have to look boring or be a straight rectangles. Many crochet scarf patterns have special features, characteristics, and even pockets. In fact, I prefer scarf patterns that are eye-catching and make you feel special and unique, more than you already are.
This unique ruffled curtain-like boomerang keyhole scarf is exactly that. It is shaped like a boomerang, aka an asymmetrical triangle scarf that has several keyholes on the long edge such that you can pull the short end through and ruffle it up and make it look like a curtain.
Boomerang scarf crochet patterns are super beautiful, yet unique and special that I designed several of them already.
This boomerang keyhole scarf is much easier than you might think though. It increases by 1 stitch per row, but to create the boomerang shape, you increase by 3 stitches on one edge and decrease by 2 stitches on the other edge.
The entire ruffled boomerang keyhole scarf is made with double crochet stitches using 6 different, yet similar colors, to create a multi-colored ombre curtain-like scarf crochet pattern.

Scarf Pattern Notes
This pattern follows a 2-row repeat with color changes after every 2 rows. To make the repeat easier to write out and understand, I will call chains and chain spaces stitches.
Each row increases by 1 stitch.
I also did not use a Ch3 as a turning chain, but instead used the Alternative Turning chain as the first counted stitch of every row.
ATC = make 1 sc, then insert hook into the loop close to the next stitch, yarn over and pull up a loop, yarn over and pull through 2 loops.
[1 ATC and 1 dc] as a dec= crochet 1 single crochet in the first st, crochet a half-finished dc (yarn over, insert hook into the stitch, yarn over, pull up a loop, yarn over and pull through 2 loops, stop here). Now yarn over and pull through all the loops from both stitches.
Crochet Boomerang Scarf Pattern
Simply pick 6 colors (more or less if you prefer) and switch colors every 2 rows.
I suggest not cutting your yarn in between and rather carrying it up to the next time you use it and then cut the longer loops on the edge later and weave them in. It saves yarn and creates less yarn tangles.
R1: [1 ATC, 2 dc] in 2nd ch from hook, 1 dc in each st until last 2 sts, 1 dc dec, turn
R2: [1 ATC and 1 dc] as dec, dc in each st until last st, 3 dc in the same st, turn
R3: [1 ATC, 2 dc] in the 1st st, 1 dc in each st until last 2 sts, 1 dc dec, turn
Repeat R2 and R3 until R88 (R88 being the repeat of R2)
Crochet Ruffled Curtain Holes for Keyhole Scarf
R89: [1 ATC, 2 dc] in the 1st st, 1 dc in the next 5 sts, (ch 5, sk 5, 1 dc in the next 6 sts) repeat 7 times, 1 dc, 1 dc dec, turn
Repeat R2 and R3 again until you have 96 rows
Fasten off and weave in all the ends.
