The Hazel Chevron Scarf is crocheted using the Peephole Chevron Stitch which is a very easy crochet stitch that provides an elegant way to add some peephole like lacy feel to the usually dense chevron stitch. This Hazel Chevron Scarf is a free crochet pattern, but is also available as a pdf.
Although the peephole chevron stitch is not very hard, some crocheters prefer a visual tutorial, so I decided to add a video tutorial to the otherwise easy crochet pattern.
I am starting to really fall in love with the chevron stitch. I have created a crochet pattern using the chevron stitch. The Chevron Clutch Pouch is one of my most popular patterns and still is very highly seen. If you have never created the chevron stitch using single crochets you should check out my tutorial for that HERE.
Although the Hazel Chevron Scarf is extremely easy to crochet, it might take a bit longer than creating a hat as this scarf uses up an entire skein of Loops and Threads’ Barcelona yarn in the color haze, hence the name of the scarf.
The hazel yarn color of the Barcelona skein is super pretty and wavy. The color mix is not all throughout the same which therefore provides you with some mystery as to how the scarf will look like in the end.
Although the Barcelona Hazel yarn skeins’ information mention to use a 6mm hook, I decided to use a 5mm crochet hook, not only because it is my most favorite go to hook, but also I did not want the peepholes of the Hazel Chevron Scarf appear to large, but rather a bit more petite and elegant.
If you are in the mood, like me, to make even more winter and cozy crochet items, you should take a look at all my other FREE CROCHET PATTERNS which are all organized by category which a certain crochet pattern is associated with.
When I first introduced my Facebook followers to the Hazel Chevron Scarf, I did not have a name for it yet, and many said it reminded them of the beach and sand. I feel the same. When I wear it, it automatically makes me warm up and feel much more cozy thinking about the warm weather while lying on the sand at the beach.
Although I know why the Peephole Chevron stitch got its name, I still feel like it should have gotten a more elegant name fitting its texture, feel and look. But regardless of how the stitch is called, the Peephole Chevron stitch is easy and fast to learn.
In fact, the Hazel Chevron Scarf uses not only the Peephole Chevron stitch, but it also has only 2 rows from which 1 repeats itself over and over again which means the pattern is easy to remember.
I would say that the Peephole Chevron stitch would also make an ideal blanket or cardigan stitch. It provides this extra something that some other crochet stitches might not be able to show off.
Let me now tell you exactly what you will need in order to make the Hazel Chevron Scarf using the Peephole Chevron stitch and how to crochet it as well.

How to crochet the Hazel Chevron Scarf
Stitches used (US terms):
Click HERE to learn these basic stitches
- sl st = slip stitch
- dc = double crochet
- ch = chain
- ch sp = chain space
- sk = skip
Gauge:[4 dc, 1 ch sp, 4 sc] x 4 rows = 3 square inch
66 inches in length and 9 inches in width
The peephole chevron stitch is made with a multiple of 10 plus 3 for the turning chain. For this scarf we will use 33 chains.
Row 1: ch 33, then 1 dc in the 4th ch from the hook and into the following 3 sts, sk 2 sts, *1 dc in the next 4 sts, ch 2, 1 dc in the next 4 sts, sk 2 sts, repeat from * till the end, place an additional dc in the last ch, ch 3 and turn
Row 2: 1 dc in the next 4 sts, sk 2 sts, *1 dc in the next 4 sts, ch 2, 1 dc in the next 4 sts, sk 2 sts, repeat from * till the end, place an additional dc in the last ch, ch 3 and turn
Repeat row 2 until you reached the desired length of the scarf you want to achieve or until you ran out of yarn. I crocheted until I had no more yarn left over of the Barcelona Hazel yarn.

You can also make the Hazel Chevron Scarf into an infinity scarf by simply folding the scarf in half and slip stitching or sewing the ends together to make a giant loop that you wrap around your neck twice, if you used the entire skein of yarn like I did.
Furthermore, if you use only about half of the skein, or make the scarf about 33 inches (that length made be different depending on your needs regarding your comfortable loop size around your neck) and slip stitch or sew the ends together to make the Hazel Chevron Scarf into a Cowl or also known as a shorter Infinity scarf.
The choice is yours, but I prefer the Hazel Chevron Scarf in the standard way where I can wrap the scarf around my neck as I wish. I hope you like this crochet pattern as much as I do. Please share it on social media so others get to enjoy it as much as you do.
